Back in 1996, Capcom were to unveil something truly horrific. Something to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Is it a video game? Is it a horror movie? No, it’s Resident Evil! Capcom’s schlock horror adventure was so undeniably gory, yet so popular that a sequel was soon to follow. But when development problems occurred and delays of Resident Evil 2 were discovered, Capcom set out to ease to public’s anxiety by releasing Resident Evil: Director's Cut.

The Director’s Cut was supposed to include all of the original features of the Japanese version, i.e. full on gore, with two extra difficulty levels. Unfortunately the BBFC were not going to allow such horror to be released to the general public, so the Director’s Cut was once again censored. The new difficulty levels however, did generate a certain level of interest. Although because of Res Evil 2's release shortly afterwards, this game was seen as nothing more than a stand alone expansion pack, if that. However, this game does include both hard and easy difficulty levels, mixed with a series of new camera angles, but unless you don't have the first version, Resident Evil: Director’s Cut is one for hardcore fans and veterans of the series only.
