Review: A return to what made this series great.

Resident Evil 2 is a remake of the classic Playstation 1 game. Gone are the pre-rendered backgrounds and tank controls. In is the behind the shoulder camera and amazing visuals.

This is a near perfect remake. I still prefer the remake of the original game to this one for one simple reason. I think the original remake goes just a step further. They added in some interesting twists that elevated it a bit. If I had to fault RE2 for anything. It's that it plays it too safe. That being said. This is a gorgeous, incredibly fun and scary game. The zombies are a blast to fight.

I loved this game but if I had to be honest, I wish it had gone further and surprised us a bit more. Purist out there may disagree but I think they could have expanded the early parts of the game.

Positive points
  • -Incredible Graphics. The RE Engine is superb.
  • -Extremely tight and fun gameplay.
  • -Does right by the original
Negative points
  • Could have used just a little extra something. It's basically too faithful which is a good or a bad thing depending on who you ask.
  • -The second scenario modes are weak.
  • - The intro section is too short, why is this?
