Too bad I don't have this much to put into games, but it sure beats GS/EB's USED prices for these.

I've never played the Resident Evil series before, so I picked up the Resident Evil 1 remake on the Cube a while back, and I would like to get these, but then I'm seeing reviews 2 and 3 on the Cube at like 5's and 6's? What happened?

Resident Evil 1 was a remake for the cube, done from the ground up if i'm not mistaken. 2 and 3 were just ports of the psone versions, only reason they go for anything now is because people want to say they own RE 0-4 for the same system. If I were you, skip to number 4, easily one of the best games of last generation

Resident Evil 2 and 3 for the gamecube weren't enhanced like REmake, from what I've heard. Despite this, they tend to sell for quite a bit

Nothing is wrong with the games, and if you have never played them I encourage you to pick them up. The reason review scores are low is because these are pretty basic ports of the Dreamcast ports that had been released just a year or two prior. Couple that with the fact that Capcom had just shown us what they could do with REmake, and I think a lot of people were just let down. I also don't think they were released at any sort of discounted price, but I could be wrong. Also, 2, 3, and Code Veronica X are semi rare and go for about this price used, so I would suggest jumping on it.

What happened was the games were supposed to be $19.99 originally since they were nothing more than ports of the PS1 versions without any of the extra stuff added to the N64/Dreamcast/PC ports, but then Capcom got greedy and brought them out at $39.99 each, and reviewers took that into account.

If I really feel like playing them, chances are I'll just pick them up on PS1 and play them on the ol' PS3. I don't really care what platform I own the games on.

Shame that 2 wasn't an actual remake though - trapped in a city full of zombies? Giggity.

Thanks for the help, everybody!

just want to let you guys know... i've done A LOT of research on which system has the best version of resident evil 2 and 3... and the dreamcast wins by far. The gamcube games are still very good, but because they squished all that goodness into 1 small gamecube disc, the games were compressed more so on the gamecube. The graphics suffer quite a bit in the FMV department, and the sound is a bit tinnier. The gamecube is ports of the PSone version, where as the Dreamcast has ports of the PC versions.

As others have said, these beat out GS's used prices, so jump on these, now, if you are interested.

Very true, keep in mind the PC version wasn't stunning or anything but still looked better then the psone.

the N64 version of RE 2 has to be the ugliest, I remember RE 0 being originally planned back then for the N64

It really shows their greed when you take into account that the superior DC versions released for $20 each.

Thanks OP! :)

Really? I played it on the N64 and really liked how it looked. Granted, my only comparison was the PS1, and the extra RAM cartridge allowed a higher resolution for all the rendered stuff. The FMVs were obviously compressed to hell, but it definitely didn't look bad.

And these are some good prices on these games, for anyone who's been after them. I already own both, but thanks anyway OP.

Guess I'll have to think about this one a little more. I haven't played 2 or 3, so I wouldn't really have anything to compare the games to. These are one of the last few games I need to complete my GameCube collection though.

thanks OP, I got in on these 2. I had to order RE3 from HubbaGames as Amazon was sold out, but the total cost was only $2 more so I'm ok with that.

I have never played either of the these but I have enjoyed 1, Veronica, and 4.

Good luck on anyone who wants one to get these

I want these two just so I can play with my Wavebird. I've got RE2 on PC, and have played through Leon's story only. These types of games just really seem suited for the Cube's controls.

Sometimes compression isn't the best, they did this with Skies of Arcadia Legends for gamecube, the music was obvious.
