Just finished the game last Sunday, it's FANTASTIC ! What. A. Remake !

Beautiful, fluid, fun to play and scary as hell ! Mr. X makes me shit my pants everytime I see it ! And it's a pretty short experience as well, so no padding ! It's intense and straight to the point ! For games like these, I love it !

This is the best RE game I've ever played, just above REmake and RE4. They knocked it out of the park with this one ! Now I'm really looking forward to RE3.

Please Konami, do the same thing with Silent Hill, pleeeaasse !

Wish there was a no mr x version for consoles.... ruined the game for me. + needed some more attention to detail outside the police station and after for me too. Was a great game though.

It was great Re-imagination after all.
But I was just wondering, did you play RE games back in the '90s, when they got released on PS1?

Creating some serious story-paradoxes here...


Sherry goes to Sewers to take a peek.




Leon avoids the Anette encounter





Claire meets Sherry for the first time, but she's already got hold of the key-card




Claire pays a visit to Kendo's Gunshop (while giving the Orphanage the cold shoulder)




Leon decides to go for a walk and take a gander at what's been going down in the Orphanage

Leon, please wake up!
That's what happens when Leon's a sleepyhead: everybody just keeps ignoring Ada in every cut-scene.






Sherry, where the hell you think you're going?
Sherry decides to take matters into her own hands and go find Claire (instead of waiting to be saved by her)
But what she discovers, at the end of the day, is her own invincibility. The indomitable Sherry Birkin after all.

RE2 Remake, breathtaking remake
I've never played RE2 on the N64 or Playstation but have recently bought this game and it's the most well rounded experience yet. Cannot say yet if it will become a top 3 Resident Evil game on my list, just began very recently, but so far the beginning is a thrilling experience

Enjoy it! I loved the game, such a great and grounded atmosphere.
Who are you playing as?

Have you finished it?
Not even close. I’m hesitant to even move in this game. I took the pricey looking “The Red Stone” from the King holding the scepter and the red book then had an unexpected encounter with the Lickers in a hallways on the second floor. I was pretty lucky to have survived but made it out of there in a panic. Didn’t even look around; it was a blur to me being in fight or flight mode lol

I've only played it three times now I think. The way I play Resident Evil games, I usually try to stretch them at least a few months or longer. But man, I was in awe earlier taking a closer look at the detail that went into this game. If this is what Capcom can do then RE8 could be game of the year

How is the PS1/N64 version of RE2?

I remember asking my friend randomly, must have been like 2007-2009, "Favorite game, all time?" and he thought for a minute was like ah man, tough one then told me "probably RE2 for the N64" which at the time really took me by surprise

The N64 version is an impressive port, but the audio took a major hit. Aside from the quality getting a downgrade, one of the best music tracks was completely removed to save space. However, the N64 has some cool game features like an item randomizer, extra files that connect RE2 to RE3 and Zero, and you can choose the blood color.

Overall, I think the PS1 version may be the better way to experience the game, and yes, RE2 Classic is 100% worth playing. RE2 Remake is fantastic, but it is essentially the "cliff notes" version the story. The best way to experience the classic RE2 is doing a Claire A/Leon B scenario (Leon A/Claire B gives you a different story that isn't as satisfying). Things you do in the A scenario will carry over to the B scenario, and I think the music, art direction, and especially the story and characters are MUCH better in the original. For instance, Leon and Claire actually work together more, Ada isn't a complete bitch to Leon, and Chief Irons is far creepier and much less of a goofball.

Regardless, RE2 Classic and RE2 Remake are easily top tier RE games, and they are different enough to feel like their own unique games--both worth playing for different reasons.
