Love this game but for some reason the botched B-sceneario pissed me off way much than it should. It kinda hate Capcom for doing it because otherwise the game would have been flawless. I'd rather they just left it out and instead had the additional Mr.X bossfights in the main game.

Great video game. And 3 was phenomenal as well. It being a little shorter was fine with me because I could romp through it in like an hour and a half. Plus the shop where you could buy stuff had me doing more run throughs and playing higher difficulties multiple times. I wound up putting more hours into 3 bc of that, and actually prefer it over 2.

But they are both amazing remakes and I still have stuff left to do in both of them. Can’t wait to jump back in one day.

Well deserved great job Capcom. Square Enix should be taking notes. THIS is how you do remakes.

Can they use some of that money to fix performance in ray tracing mode on consoles? Lowering resolution would be a good start, that'll be a few million dollur.

Well, at the end of the day RE2 is better regarded and more remembered than Sekiro. Now we know it sold way more too.
Why why why do people always do this? Both games are great!! No need to shit on one or the other, it’s totally unnecessary…

Easy to understand why RE4 remake is obviously happening.

Well deserved. The original is and will always be one of my all time favorite games. The remake did not disappoint. Bought it on xbox one, ps4 and Steam. (Still haven't completed, I'm ashamed to say - adult life does that to you, I guess).

This is how to remake a game! I am excited and nervous hoping RE4 is as amazing! All while playing RE2 I was anxious to see Leon and Ada redone in RE4. Man I can’t wait until March 24th!

cool, awesome game.

Now I just hope they take RE4R much further than one more safe iteration of the RE2R / RE3R gameplay with nicer graphics

Leon's campaign might have been awful and they made the unfortunate decision not to fix the A/B and zapping systems it's still nice to see RE2 do so well. It's easily the best attempt at translating the classic style into an over-the-shoulder perspective and Claire's game is 100x better than the original. It's just a shame we had to suffer through REmake 3 and Village before getting a proper follow-up.

The game is outstanding but it didn't quite capture the same sense of scale and disaster as the original. The originals atmosphere is something I am incredibly fond of and I would have liked the remake to include a fixed camera mode and I hope Capcom give us a fixed camera RE again in the future. In fact, I'd really like a fixed camera remake of Code Veronica with a visual design like the original REmake.

People got low standards this game didn't fully deliver. Should've been a 9 and it was a 7 as fuck.

I thought it was a solid 9. I'd still give the original a slight edge but theres not much in it and the remake does several things better. Its much scarier, the zombies are way more of a threat, Mr X is far superior etc.

It looks like the Next Gen patch helped push them over the line.

Would be interesting to know what kind of sales bump and activity that produced.
 
this reads kind of funny when Square was always bitching and moaning about selling millions and declaring it a failure.

I hope they return to Remember Me some day, or Deep Down, or an Okami adventure in VR. RE and SF (and DD) is fine, but a little more variety and new IPs like in PS2 PS3 era would be appreciated.

Game is fantastic, probably the best remake ever all things considered. I'm probably one of the few who really likes RE3 remake too, despite its unfortunate shortcomings. I hope RE4 is a return to form.
Come to think of it, I'd really like Capcom to do a new RE with RE2+3+4 Remake gameplay too. Not that I don't adore the Remakes but a completely new RE with it would be awesome.
