Capcom decided to remaking the game, and the results are quite spectacular. You have pretty much the same story from the game, but the visuals are way better and some mechanics were refined in order to update them to the modern times.
An interesting, much-needed update
This Resident Evil 2 version is basically a remake of the older game that you could play on the PlayStation but this time around you will notice that they are replacing the fixed or tank controls with the over the shoulder 3rd person shooter camera to bring in more immersion. The story is pretty much the same, they didn’t change anything and you don’t really have, since it was really good to begin with.
Another interesting change that’s actually more than welcome is the fact that you can save as often as you want with this version. Of course, if you choose to go with the Hardcore difficulty then you will need to collect some ink ribbons if you want to save the progress. That says a lot about the experience and the gameplay really is among some of the best that you can find out there.
You still get to play with either Claire or Leon, and you can access certain areas, enter a variety of sub plots and accessible areas. That being said, you can play with the other character only if you finish the game once. There are side quests and a variety of things that warrant a second look at the very least, and the experience itself is quite exhilarating and exciting especially if you are a fan of Resident Evil 2 in particular.
The second time you play also offers you variations and you can enter through new locations and so on. That really adds to the immersion factor and it warrants a second playthrough, which is what you would expect from a game like this to begin with.
Graphics and sounds
The visuals are staggering in Resident Evil 2. This remake looks nothing short of extraordinary. It’s clearly a labor of love from the developers and they worked really hard to make this as interesting and as visually appealing as possible. Plus, they retained the story and didn’t change anything, instead they just added some functional features as we mentioned earlier. The music is also intact, and the sounds themselves are very immersive.
Overall, Resident Evil 2 is a great example of how you need to do a remake. It looks great, it’s very easy to play and you will like just how detailed it really is. You do want to check it out for yourself and give it a try if you love horror games. Even if you don’t particularly like horror titles, this game gives you the suspense you expect from a good title. It’s certainly worth your time and you do want to check it out as soon as possible.
