|Nice little nod to the videogame as soon as you open the box.|
|If the photocopier at work is monitored with a login, try and con Kevin from accounting into copying some of these for you. Everyone hates that guy anyway.|
|This campaign will actually be primarily following Leon, which is why I wanted to show some Claire love here!|
- Resident Evil 2: The Board Game definitely captures the aesthetic of the source material, with survival favoured over the action more frequently seen in this genre.
- Solo mode is an option (huzzah!).
- Campaign mode will appeal to hardcore gamers, while more casual gamers can enjoy the scenarios on an individual basis.
- The mechanics are fairly straightforward, with the tutorial scenario easing players in nicely.
- The components are generally of a high quality, as expected from Steamforged.
- Mercifully short set up time, as long as the tokens have been pre-sorted.
- Some of the tokens are printed very darkly. The double-sided doors are a prime example, with it being difficult to tell at a glance whether the door is open or closed.
- The game may have limited appeal to those who aren't established fans, and therefore have no prior attachment to the characters and settings.
- The price is a little steep for the core game.
- A better box design to incorporate some token space would have been nice.
