What has RE2 become
Yeah, it has enough side content to make it different including different rooms. But as you said as much as I couldn't wait to play it, once I did scenario A it took me a good month to even attempt B.
Either because I kinda hated the bullet sponge and it really is twice the amount than in the original. Or annoying MR X that I couldn't at least in one scenario just enjoy browsing around the station at a more casual pace.
I was really dreading going back through as Claire right away, and having to beat the game twice to actually beat it. At the start of Claire B I was pretty bored and didn't feel like continuing, but did since I have to return the game and wanted to beat it.
But Claire's story was actually better than Leon's. Her campaign also. The nursery section was better than Ada Wong by far, and a lot creepier. I'm glad that I did play it for five hours today and not miss it.
The one pain in the ass for her was a good thing and a bad thing. She has too many guns, and too many different types of ammo. Two different pistol ammos and types, then a new 9mm pistol, plus the shitty electrical gun, the big grenade launcher which kicks ass and the uzi. So much of my inventory was taken up by it that I was always having to micromanage. Even when I had all of the inventory slots at the end.
But I liked to carry a lot of health stuff, even though I did that one on easy and only healed once during each of the bosses. I ended with two or three health sprays and two or three herb mixes.
Claire's game is pretty much the reason to play the remake. As for her inventory you can just skip the grenade launcher in the police station. You dont really need it until you get to the lab and one spawns in the first room there if you skipped it. You also get plenty of ammo in the lab for it so you dont really need to horde any ammo during the rest of the game.
Spark shot is a super good weapon for bosses so dont sleep on it.
I know i'm pretty late to the party but i just started the game and downloaded the original soundtrack but there is no option to change the soundtrack from the Audio menu, do i have to reach a certain location to be able to change the soundtrack or something ?
I reinstalled the game and still there isn't an option to change the soundtrackNo, it's available from the very beginning.

another thing is bothering me is the guiding, the game tells me where to go, what rooms i have explored and the location of key items, is there a way to turn all this off ? i want to play the game like the original.
Hahaha! This is insane. Lord in heaven, what has become of this thread? When FFVIIR gets released for PC then a global war of Tifa mods will initiate.
PC version of this game is the definitive version thanks to all those sexy Claire mods. Damn some outfits are just insane.
I really like this remake but I'm still a bit bummed at some unnecessary changes or things they scrapped from the original. I miss some of the enemies they scrapped, even if they had small parts in the original they could have been better implemented here. Don't know why they got rid of the looping save room music, don't know why they got rid of a lot of the iconic themes when re-doing the music..... some scenes getting drastically changed or replaced. Files were a bit lacking in the diary department, and you can no longer click the environment for character thoughts which 7 expanded a good deal I felt.
I like a lot of the elements they redid but it definitely made me miss some things too. Game is still really freakin' good though. Any elements any of you wish they tackled a bit better?
I agree with all your points outside of Mr.X, zombies and difficulty. I personally thought they were a huge improvement over the original. I know you're just stating criticisms of how they could have been better I just meant in terms of what wasn't improved on the original. To me those were. EVERYTHING else though I couldn't agree more. I like the look of the lab to an extent but it felt a bit streamlined and lost it's grit.....I know the lab was supposed to be newer but it looks TOO futuristic.The lack of enemy variety was unfortunate
The lab felt rushed and wasn't nearly as interesting as the original
Leon's characterization and dynamics with Ada don't work nearly as well. I also don't like her new look at all.
Not a fan of the adaptive difficulty as it makes speed runs into a total chore
Mr. X was handled poorly. It's incredibly easy to juke him, you can optimize your route to where you barely see him, and some of his cooler moments are just gone or really easy to miss.
The zombie changes ended up not being that big a deal in the long run. Sure, headshots aren't as useful but it still suffers from the RE4 strategy of just popping a couple of shots in the leg and running.
They really should have fixed the A/B games and the zapping systems instead of essentially just dropping them.
New music was awful.
I was expecting Kendo and Marvin to get their expanded roles back so that was a bummer.
A lot of scene changes were worse. Birkin's death and transformation was far better in the original for one.
New Ben sucked.
All that said, Claire's game was still an amazing improvement on the original. I wasn't so high Annette but everything else worked way better than it did before aside from Irons who was great fun but not really better or worse.
RE2 was ripe for a remake since it had so many issues so it's a bit of a letdown that they weren't able to completely fix it but it's still the best RE game in a long time.
