It changes a great deal about the original game, including mechanics and even plot points, even if it can't quite fix everything that critics complained about 20 years ago. The first thing that anyone who played the original will notice in the remaster is the completely new control system and freedom of camera movement. You play as Jill Valentine, who is attacked in the opening scene by a deadly creation known as the Nemesis. Behind every door may be a new enemy, and moments of calm could always be destroyed by the Nemesis or some other new monstrosity. It reminds you how this series redefined survival horror. And the game was always a bit knocked for being more action-based and less survival-based, which still feels true, even if it's been improved. So a relatively-brief six-hour playtime had replay value. And most of us have a lot more time in front of our TVs than we did just a couple months ago. Why not use it to kill some zombies?
A new fan project seeks to remaster the original, uncensored Resident Evil intro. This remastered intro remarkably upscales the original to 4K and 60 FPS. This allows us to witness just how insane, corny, and low-budget the intro really was. When Resident Evil was released in Japan as BioHazard , it featured a live-action intro sequence famous for its brutality, awful costumes, and even worse acting. While the bad acting and costumes made it to the Western version of the game, much of the original violence was cut. Until now, most people who wanted to watch the intro were forced to endure a poorly ripped version of it that almost never survived the upload process fully intact. While the rough nature of the footage kind of compliments how bad it is, it has been frustrating to be unable to watch the intro in its full, intended glory all these years later.

The US version of Director's Cut was marketed as containing the same uncensored FMV footage as the original Japanese version of the game, but only contained the same censored footage as the previous US version. Reportedly, this was a localization error done by the developers in which the uncensored footage was erronously replaced by the edited footage according to Capcom USA. Despite this, Capcom never recalled the game to fix the alleged mistake, nor did they include uncensored footage in the US release of the Dual Shock version despite having the opportunity of doing so. The PlayStation and Saturn versions released outside of Japan including the Director's Cut edition, which was erronously marketed as being uncensored by Capcom's US division of the game had three of the game's FMV sequences altered from the original Japanese release.
