Resident Evil 2 is the sequel to the PlayStation horror game Resident Evil. The sequel released in 1998, two years after its predecessor and takes place roughly two months after the original game.
The Beginning Of Story
While the opening track is more so filled with ambient sounds and some frequent moments of silence, the track does exceptionally well at giving you a strange sense of creepiness, simply from the sounds and musical cues in the song alone.
This theme that plays during save zones in the game, delivers a sense of safety, all while still making sure the player is aware that danger lurks just outside of these safe zone.
There is a strange sense of warmth found in Sherry's Theme. It still has a slight linger of mystery and danger, but everything seems to be a little more peaceful and at ease when her theme plays.

The staff roll theme at the end of Resident Evil 2 is actually a very rock/funk theme. The song has a killer guitar melody throughout, and the songs riveting bass line is a major point of mention.
