There's not a lot of suitable levels and room for him to do that, especially after mutations. The only place in which he could do that is on the Racoon City streets but given how super compact they are in Remake in comparison to original maps, it's just not possible. Original maps were a lot more sprawling and there was 3 maps with a lot of locations you could visit - Uptown, Downtown and Outkirts. So ultimately and if you'll take into consideration how Remake was designed, I don't think it could've changed much if Nemesis was more like Tyrant in RE2, cuz as soons as you leave the city streets and Nemesis starts to mutate... he can't just chase you like Tyrant anymore.Nemesis definitely should have been randomized to pop up anywhere, at any time!
But personaly, I liked what they did with him and I really enjoyed rivalry between Nemesis and Jill in this game. It's just so well done, so well-acted and believable (on emotional level and how Jill reacts to him), which I can't say about Tyrant at all in RE2. Honestly, it reminded me of Ripley and Queen Alien. The second form of Nemesis even look like Alien. Devs were clearly inspired by Alien and Aliens, cuz there's just so many references to these two movies and they even naimed a coffee shop in honor of Sigourney Weaver and gone way beyond simple posters.
