I'm avoiding most of the reviews, just reading the main headlines.

But so far from what I've read, sounds really good.

The horror aspect of the game is very praised.

Puzzles seem to be a little easy, thanks to a helping system, hope there's an option to remove that.

Holy shit I can't believe we're actually days away from this happening. I didn't think we'd ever get this.

Great OP, by the way. Thank you!

Same. I was so excited when Capcom announced they were bringing the whole RE series to GameCube, followed shortly by disappointment when it became clear that they weren’t giving the REmake treatment to the other games. Been a long time coming.

I almost watched one of the reviews but then saw "may contain spoilers" and said nope. I mean I've already beaten the original millions of times, but I don't really know what all they've switched up in this remake so prefer to find out myself.

omg reviews look amazing so far.

I expected good scores but not 90+

Now I'm sure I will get this but still don't know if on PC or One X.
Are there any reviews of the PC version that list drawbacks?
The demo ran perfect on my PC but you never know for the full version.

Yes the reviews are spoiler-laden
Be informed!

And finally, here it is. Collector's Edition unboxing:


Very disappointed that the Gamestop version was priced at what it was and didn't have half the cool stuff that the EU version had, but damn I still wanted that statue. Same thing happened with RE7, the EU got the better deal. :(

I'm really glad that Capcom has picked themselves back up, for a while there I was really concerned.

I'm so excited about playing this, I REALLY wish I wanted that collector's, I just wish it was Mr. X or Birkin over Leon. Or maybe even Leon and a zombie, or something of similar action.

I cannot wait for the Resident Evil 3 remake, and call me crazy, but I'm still hoping for a Resident Evil remake done in the same vein. Though, I doubt that will happen.

Square Enix has been awful? NieR, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Octopath Traveller, all of them were at worst only average.

I don't suppose anyone here who picked up the Collectors Edition and has no interest in the Leon Statue is interested in selling him, would they? I am playing it on PC so I didn't bother to pick up the Collector's Set...but I would love to get the statue as I have both RPD Figures from 2 and 4.

Somewhat, just bring back Breath of Fire, Darkstalkers, Powerstone, and rival schools. And we are all set.

So the only thing that's buggin me is this Mr X/Tyrant shit. Does that thing really chase you through most of the game? One review stated that he shows up about a 1/3 of the way in. Is he there the rest of the time or only at certain moments?

If I gotta be on edge about this motherfucker for over half my time playing that's gonna be a potential major pain in the ass.

It appears multiple times in RE2 so yes, it's a recurring enemy. Not sure if he will be scripted or not like in the original though.

Good work op

Does anybody know if I can get the classic soundtrack in game if I buy the disk, if love it for a second run threw. it seems to be a digital only option which is a shame as I paid got the game some time ago.

ACG says in his review that there is an in game store on the main menu, which he was told is only for the deluxe edition stuff for people that may want it later.

Except their fighting games...:messenger_loudly_crying:

Anyway I'm super ready for this game. Closest I had to "spoilers" was playing the 1-shot demo which I enjoyed quite a bit. Can't wait to see some of the later portions remade. This is an easy mode purchase for me.

I pretty much barely play anymore, however I'm so hyped now as I'm pretty sure this'll easily be the highlight of the year for me! I mean c'mon it's RE2 the best of the series remade. And now they say it is actually superb. Dear Friday, you can't come soon enough!!

I wouldn't take what reviews say about him. Experience it on your own IMO. Its like someone trying to explain Nemesis to someone else. Its best if you just experience it for yourself.
Honestly, he added a lot to the original game. I tend to think of him as keeping you on your toes. In the original. He is apparent in most of Claire's side until the end

This tyrant part and the lackluster OneX version is a reason why skip the game.

Whoa whoa whoa, there. What do you mean lackluster OneX version? Is the X-Box One X version inferior to the PS4 Pro version in any way, shape or form? The demo looked much better on my X1X and I pre-ordered it for the X. Is the PS Pro version better?

Its a survival horror game not a walk-in-the-park game. You can just turn the difficulty down if you can't handle it :pie_raybans:

Don’t think there have been any reports on the final game but the demo was very phoned home on the x and looked worse in some spots due to the AA ...this was an old build apparently so it’s probably more likely to of been fixed.
Will await those comparisons

They're rewritting their review. They completely missed half of the game
Where is the info? In the site?
Good spot.

edit: Ok. I find. I hate IGN because this keep redirecting for the Brazil site. Annoying as hell.
[Editor's Note: We've realized that we were confused about the way the second perspective is unlocked. After you play through one, the alternate perspective becomes available for the other character through different section of the main menu. We're working on a revised version of this review and will update it shortly. We apologize for the error.]

Never played the original game so I don't understand with the whole Leon A Claire B and Leon B Claire A

Which one were supposed to play first?

Heard that Claire A Leon B is the canon one?
