Resident Evil Remaster is coming in early 2015 on PC, current-gen and old-gen consoles and below you can find a new comparison between the original Wii version and the latest upcoming HD overhaul.
Looks great! I'll be getting this on PS4.
I'm not getting it at all, played it on Wii a few years ago. Not worth double dipping.
Some of the shots from the remaster simply don't look good at all. I dunno - this has cash grab written all over it.
Cash grab or not, there are still MILLIONS of RE fan's worldwide that missed out on this game due to it being exclusive on the game, it's a must have for them regardless.
Damn. Nintendo always with the best graphics!
All I can really say is..."Don't open that door!"
If anything, these shots just show how f-ing good the Gamecube version looked. Honestly not that impressed with the new screens. Don't see a reason to buy this yet.
I bet that capcom will make you pay for extra outfits as DLC for this.
none of those shots look good
Reminds me of the days back when Chris had a normal human body and not some dudebro steroid abusing junkie they turned him into for Re5. Will buy both next gen versions just to support the genre.
I'm curious, did Capcom ever explain the overhaul to Chris for RE5 and onwards?
The Resident Evil wiki says he bulked up before RE5 so that he'd be a better match against Wesker, but there's no source so I don't know where they got that info from...or how true it is.
B.O.W.s Become his sandbag
Try western appeal tactics (= more sales)... We sure love our dudebro moments dont we?
Yeah but leon isnt bulked up unlike chris who has a personal reason after the veronica incident
Chris redfield became marcus fenix... someone at capcom played a little too much gears of war and thought it would be a good idea.... how wrong they were..
they could have next gen'ed the graphics up some imo. I'll buy it to support a true resi game
Ill be getting this for ps4 just to let capcom know we hate that new gears of war version of res evil 5 we need the old game back with the puzzle and the scare..blim ((zod telleport back in to the shadows))
Never played REmake, so I'm looking forward to this.
Its looking better than expected I can't wait
Couldn't have been expecting much then.
Agreed, I was expecting much more out of this remake especially for PS4 and X1. If it was coming out a couple years ago for PS3 and 360, sure, but this looks really ugly. If you're going to remake it, remake it right.
Remaster my butt.
No one wants to remaster your butt.
how about about a Shovel? LOL
if they are going to do a remake they should have redone everything in full 3d and completely dropped the pre-rendered backgrounds. As it stands I will stick with the wii version.
Thats why they are not calling it a remake. The give away is in the title. Resident Evil Remaster.
Still not worth diving in a forth time for. If you ask me this is a missed opportunity
Eh, hopefully it will get better since they have more then 5 months remaining until release.
Looks good to me. What are u expecting? Its high resolution pre rendered back ground and characters that are a bit more detailed espeacially in the faces. And higher res textures.
It was confirmed that they are indeed adding a different control scheme correct? I know some people love the tank controls but that was the only thing I disliked about REmake. I recall they never fixed it on the Wii port.
I've already played through this game 3 times, but ill purchase again just to support the genre and hopefully they'll do number 2.
Playing resident evil ps1 on the emulator right now . Cant wait for this one.
I'll get both PS4 version and Resident Evil Archives RE/RE0 for Wii/Wii U then. Like I did with RE3 on Playstation and Dreamcast. I still wondering if they ever consider a RE0 port for PS4/XBO? Most people slept on the series' prequel.
i loved the prequel.
Then do yourself a favor go out and buy Resident Evil Archives:Resident Evil Zero for Wii or the original for GC. It's a great game,just don't expect so much from a prequel since it just the beginning after all. You play the prequel for story NOT for its innovative gameplay and enemies because if that's the case then what's the point of making a sequel?
The prequel was the lamest game of them all... sadly.. lol It was a cash grab and just reversed the idea that there was one tyrant. Which was the thing that made the tyrant so horrifying in the first one.. he was a prototype and scary.
they might consider it if this one sells well
It really does look like they're cropping the original 4:3 frame to achieve 16:9. Disgusting
yeah, they doing some sort of pan and scan technique. basically zoom in and then move the screen around. theres no other work around.
You know if they're gonna put a 4:3 option?
Before screenshots :) after screenshots :( What a waste of a remake. Nothing impressive, specially if you're getting it for ps4, xb1, or pc.
If the story wasn't so darn bad I would buy this in a heartbeat. I'm craving for more survival horror but I don't care if they have shit storytelling. Amnesia and Machine For Pigs are probably the only good blends of shocking horror and good narratives.
The original RE story was terrific. Dont know what your talkn about. It didnt start getting bad until RE4 5 and 6. When they started turning it into an action game where chris is a body builder with unlimited ammo and leon is a secret agent with... unlimited ammo. lol So much for being a couple of cops trapped by zombies.
Very disappointed if this is the final screens. I can barely tell a difference. Not much effort in this. Seems like a direct port from the Wii with upscale.
A lot of people said the same about RE 4 and Code X Veronica too.
I got to say, couple of them Wii shots did the game better than the HD remake! Well done Nintendo.
Nintendo has nothing to do with this game, its all Capcom whether on Game Cube, Wii, PS3/4 or whatever
It's Nintendo that provides Capcom the hardware to build it on. It's a two way thing.
Below the title says the original Wii game, when the game is originally a Gamecube remake, fail.
U fail, Gamecube games work on Wii so they must've upscalled it to 480P with component.
Obvious dumbass, I'm talking about the game being originally a gamecube game, nothing to do with Wii playing GC games, idiot. "below you can find a comparison between the [original Wii version] and the latest upcoming HD overhaul". FYI, they released a Wii version in 2008 if you didn't know, fool.
Gamecube, Wii, was there really a big difference in power? That's probably where they got confused....
The original looks far more better, just look at that zombie face.
So lame! Projects like these should be extra gems this gen, and all we're getting is old releases with the HD treatment instead of new entries to existing or new franchises. Sadly looks like we're getting used to it. Again, I love this game in particular and welcome HD re-releases, but they should be extra games, not instead of the other games. Still waiting for Capcom to produce another RE1 or RE2... Where's Megaman? Where's Darkstalkers (you do remember they released an HD version of it as well)? The HD remake of the GC remake? How many times do I have to buy the same game? Not looking good.
An HD gamecube port. I thought we were going to get an actual RE remake with 2014 graphics, not a 2002 looking game in HD.
ND remasters a game with crazy graphics from 720p 30FPS to 1080p 60FPS and people bitched and complained. This garbage should have people foaming at the mouth torching Capcom's headquarters, this is a crap remaster. This is pathetic.
too much reliance on remastered rereleases at full price could lead to huge game industry crash
I'm sorry but this does not look like remastered version :[
Fucking masterpiece of a game.
great game, wish they had built it from scratch though. it will look much better than the original once we see it running at our own homes. resolution will be more than twice as high so the pre rendered backgrounds should be very nice. hopefully capcom will just use the money from it to actually remake 2 then 3,0 & veronica.
forgot to mention that I don't think it should be a full priced title.
the gamecube version still looks pretty damn good but i dont have those anymore so i might rebuy em if theyre on sale
From now on, I don't want remasters because remasters are just HD ports, how about developers give us Definitive editions instead of remasters.
