"The rumors that are swirling suggest that the Resident Evil 2 remake will be in third person akin to Resident Evil 4 — but with a more ‘stylish’ execution." PlayStation Enthusiast
Hope not Resi 4 was a great game but not a great Resident Evil game, downfall from the classic to action orientated if ya ask me . Now the Remake of 1 nailed it . So if 2 Remake is anything like 1 Remake it will be a classic again. Just remember the classic Resi zombies the slow rotten, scary , real zombies and you can’t go much wrong.
A hardcore RE fan speaking here! i 100% agree. RE4 didn't have a single puzzle.. RE2 was full of those.
That's just wrong. What about the chess puzzle, the tombstone symbols and the statues in the room? There's also lots of missing pieces or levers as well. Stop hatin.
theshredded come on! you call those puzzles? there is no exploration in RE4 just running and gunning.
100% agree. I don't want an action game.
RE1 Remake and RE0 are still my two favorites in the series. If they go over the shoulder, Capcom will need to tread lightly on things and not stray too far from the original concepts. You say slow moving zombies, bouzebbal says remember the puzzles, I say remember the pacing. It needs a slow pace, lots of tension, and a healthy fear of the unexpected too. It also needs to do something new like the RE1 Remake. Those Crimson Heads scared the crap out of me the first time I found one and Lisa was a beast!
GOTY though. Sometimes you're wrong.
I'd love to see it in the style of RE4. The weapons and ways you could go about things were just superior in RE4. I get that some people love the classic style, with limited items, ammo preservation being key, and all that jazz, but it just never struck me as being as fun as earning the PRL, charging it up, and watching an entire map's worth of zombies fall to their knees. [along with whatever animals were in the area] That and I just love the idea of being able to kick a zombie's head off again after stunning them. That's fun stuff.
It's got "Resident Evil 2 Remake" for the title, if they want to attract Rambo-style zombie games fan they'd call it.. well not that.
Okay, then let me put this in a different context, for your consideration... You don't think the style would change, right? And that the name reflects that? FFVII remake changed its combat and kept the name. There's precedence for this sort of change beyond that, too, but I think that proves my point well enough; If Squeenix is able to change it up, I see no reason why Capcom can't do the same to the RE2 Remake. And I feel it would be a more exciting game because of it. Especially if they increased the number of enemies to compensate for the new abilities.
lol I never talked about the gameplay, I was talking about the theme. I think FFVIIR despite changing its combat system, will keep their "feel" and "essence" true to the original and so will RE2R, will keep being a "horror survival" game, not a Rambo game set in a zombie apocalypse a la Dead Rising. and they make it for the RE2 fans no? not for RE4 fans, so why would they make it into RE4 in RE2 setting?? wait for your turn man, I'm sure if this game succeed there's bound to be RE4R
I just want the part 2 remake! Loved part 1&2! Loved the remake for the original and Zero! Part 3 was okay and really enjoyed Code Veronica and part 4. I also loved what RE7 did and just want to play this game so much!!!!!
So with how well REmake sold they can’t just give us something like that? They’ll need to tweak the zombies then or it’ll be way too easy with over-the-shoulder aiming.
Or just add more of them and make them faster. Or make harder monster-types show up sooner, like Lickers.
Or just keep it in the vein of REmake and RE 0...
I didn't have the chance to play either of those, so can you tell me what you meant?
Have you played any Resident Evil pre-RE4?
I played the original Resident Evil years back, yeah. Might have played a bit of two and some of Zero at some point, but I don't remember enough of them to really count them at this point.
Massive resi fan from 1-3 but apart from all the spin off titles that dragged the franchise down resi 4 is probably one of my least favourite in the series unpopular opinion I know it's good but played to much like an action game I would prefer resi 2 stay more true to the source
couldn't agree more.
I gave up hoping for another game as incredible as Resi 4 a long time ago. It was lightning in a bottle. Resi 5 literally plays the exact same but it's not even in the same league -- it takes a lot more than just having an over the shoulder camera and laser sights. I'd love for this to be a fairly accurate remake of two instead, keep the new third person camera but give me a slower, spookier experience with puzzles and item management -- maybe ramp up the action just a little in the second half, I feel like if they actually try for once, they can make a game that appeals to both horror Resi and action Resi fans.
RE4 truly is one of the best games ever made and not only that, is also one of the most influential games ever. A masterpiece in every sense of the word.
If they make this in the same vein as RE4 I'll be passing. RE4 killed the resident evil franchise for me and contributed greatly to the lack of evolution in the survival horror genre. Keep your action RE to the movies please, thx. This is a huge statement from me considering RE2 and silent hill 2 are imo best in genre.
I have two words for you: Dead Space. A game like so many out there that owes a lot to RE4 and one of the best survival horror games ever made. If anything RE4 was a much needed evolution for a franchise that was completely stagnant and its not Mikami's fault that Capcom and EA bastardized what made these 2 games great by amping up the action with their respective sequels.
We already have one and it's called The Evil Within but I get what you mean.
Depends what formula they use; original ceiling cams, over the shoulder, or first person. I hope it's the former, much like Resident Evil 1 and 0. Though with this being a remake, it could be any of the above. So long as it retains the survival horror elements and doesn't slide too deeply towards action, I'm sold.
I prefer the resident evil 4 control style so I would buy this. I like the inventory in 4, the new game plus options and unlockables were all top notch. I beat that game at least 10 times.
Re4 is my favorite game of all Time. Soooo epic
Ahhhhhh, I'll buy it at a high price!
You win this comment section, merchant.XD
Just leave the fuckin games alone and make a new one that's good! Jesus :/
I hope so and this stuff isnt all rumors.. A RE2 remake sounds great but ive been hearing of it for years
id actually like it to have the option of fixed or 3rd person (if possible) as i wouldnt mind playing it back how it originally was but im not complaining either way day 1 for me own all the other res evils on ps4 atm (that are avalible on ps4) #2 would go in nicely
Hopefully Resident Evil 2 will have an option for being on PSVR. This would be perfection for meeeeeeee😎
Wow kinda crazy its been over 20 years since i played the original. RE2 and CVX are two of my favorites in the series... Heres hoping CVX gets the remake treatment as well. The remake of RE1 on the gamecube was much better than the orig so im hoping RE2 is something like that.
RE2’s control scheme wouldn’t work in this day and age. I’m an old school RE fan but I’d welcome a RE4 style makeover for RE2
Keep it like the remakes from GameCube none that res 4 view.. let me drop that canister into the alligator mouth and blow his head off again lol
RE4 was the start of the downfall for the series. Most people don't believe this because resident evil 4 was their first Resident evil game. All the games before 4 were far superior to 4 and I hope they keep RE2 faithfully to its source material. Most people who love RE4 complained and bitched about 5 and 6 which is just hilarious.
