"Paid shills say a game is great! If you diseagree you're a hater!"
Yeah, the fact that something as basic looking like garbage wasn't addressed until fans complained really shows the care and attention the game has had put into it
If RE4 was your favorite you'd know the changes made are for the worse. Generic modern additions like parrying, item durability, stealth, one hit takedowns, etc... A generic shooter is what this is. Better graphics? They're more detailed but for some reason every material is ultra shiny. A throwback to the days of Perfect Dark Zero. Better animation? Yeah, I'll give you that. Better character design? Of course, just look at grandma Salazar. Better sound? Sure, if you like all guns to sound like thumps. Better gameplay? With all that input lag? Better characterization? Leon being stuckup asshole, Luis being an annoying meth-addict looking sidekick that Leon despises, Ada being boring as fuck, etc... Yeah, all better for sure. And of course, removed sections from the original. Wow, so much better.
We love the HD Project.
It looks worse overall for making stupid visual decisions like ultra-shiny clean materials that don't even have SSR applied on them and obnoxiously strong PS2-level bloom. Leon looking like a caveman during gameplay isn't an improvement either.
The controls were great in the original, perfectly matched with the design of the game. Not every game has to be a twitch shooter, after all
