The remaster was due to lost code. It would have been so much better, but they did not have access to the source code and had to make due. The community patched it well on the PC last I heard.
Yeah, it was what it was and I get that they didn’t really have the budget it would’ve required to properly rebuild the game based on what they had, but dang some of that shit was r o u g h.
But yeah you’re right, if one is able to “acquire” a copy of the PC version of SH2, the community’s done a marvelous job at updating it themselves. Actually I think it was a thread here a few years back before I joined where someone compiled all the necessary patches and fixes with instructions. That’s the way I play the game nowadays (though I do still have my PS2 copy stashed somewhere).
They did the same for SH3 and 4 if I remember right, too.
