YouTube’s member ‘Rod Lima’ has been working on a HD fan remake of Resident Evil 2 in Unreal Engine, and today shared a video showing off a full playthrough with Claire.
man, great job. i played through #2 twice about a year ago, this makes me wanna run through it again so bad.
RE2 is the best of them all. A must have game. Back in those days I finish it more then twenty times. :)
i want to play this now.
me too. I dont care if its unofficial.. this is awesome. The environments have life and motion in them.. i love it.
If fan projects can be of this quality, what the hell is with all of the crap updates and weak "remakes" we normally get from the developers themselves?
What bad remakes are you referring to?
Most recently, Capcom boosting the resolution and some of the textures of a ten year old remake in itself and selling it for twenty bucks. All the while a few guys in their spare time do a full blown modern remake that looks better than the content the developer proper cares to offer us. Great game. Not trying to take anything from it. But, at the end of the day, we are often being offered the bare minimum when it comes to such releases. Fine if you're jumping in for the first time, but I've always viewed these things as aimed at the fans themselves, and we should expect more.
@Slaphappy So you wanted them to remake a game that's already been remade? Resident evil is a remaster to a old remake to an even older game. By everybodys terms this doesn't even qualify as a remake, at all Yay! that u support this re2 fan project... because I think it's Coming along nicely
@loganbdh, I don't think SlapHappyJesus was requesting a remake of a remake, but I'll stand by his 'weak' comment. Having picked up a GameCube Q exclusively for the Resident Evil remake, I was absolutely blown away by what Capcom did with that title. Over the past ten years, the team at Capcom managed to bump up the textures and add a new control scheme but went backwards with the text overlays, multiple load screens and removal of series hallmarks (e.g.: typewriter entry). While I'm loving the opportunity to play though this game again, I'd have to agree that Capcom didn't give this HD remaster the amount of polish fans would expect. Seeing how fans are making both RE2 and RE4 games of this caliber, I think we should definitely expect more and, speaking of which, where IS my RE2 remake, Capcom?
Awesome job!!!! Capcom should hire this guy!
UHhhhhhh, just wow. good job, looks like it could have been a real remake.
nice nice!!! an RE2 remastered remake would be awesome.
must have had a lot of free time on his hands.. capcom needs to go ahead and pay him money and make a product out of it. But lets face facts.. capcoms business decisions and direction of their titles has been dumb for a long time now.. turning resident evil into an action movie was the lamest thing ever. Need to go back to the original gameplay.
Not trying to disagree with you by any means, because Capcom has most definitely been making terrible decisions. But I'm just wondering if turning the Resident Evil movie into an action movie was really Capcom's decision? Sure, they own the game rights, but do they own the film rights? Considering they don't have their own movie studio, I would have to think they sold the film rights to whatever company it is that makes those abortions. If thats the case, then Capcom wouldn't really have any control over how the movie turns out. It would be a situation like the Marvel movies. X-Men, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four...all of those are owned by Fox and Sony. Marvel actually has no creative control over those films, which is why you'll never see them in the Avengers film universe. At any rate, the Resident Evil movies were kind of a guilty pleasure of mine...until the 3rd one came out. All of them since then have been garbage. Even the first two, even though they weren't actual adaptations of the games, you could at least still fit them into the timeline of the games...kind of.
When i meant action movie.. i meant the game is now an action movie.. the movies themselves are a whole other level of stupid lol... Dont blame capcom for those.. i blame the director who casts his wife as the lead and turns the resident evil series into a series about his wife with the game characters as hollow props. Capcoms doing is turning their game franchise into just all out action with unlimited ammo.After code veronica it went down hill. I LOVE the originals... re1 and 2 were by far the best horror games ive ever played in my life. Love the atmosphere the first 4 games had. Love the back trackign and exploration.. Exploring was my favorite part.. now we dont even get any of that.. now its practically on rail shooter.. only going forward.. never backward.. no thinking.. just kill anything that moves.
Oh lol. My bad. Then yeah, i definitely i agree with everything you're saying.
Nice. There was another RE2 remake that when you aim, it did the over the shoulder prospective. It is sad when fans can do better with those old Capcom IPs than Capcom. I'm surprised we don't have "Resident Evil: Runners" for IOS yet... >___>
