I love the legend and all the craziness that went on with RE1.5!

Knowing it exists but not knowing much about it, I thoroughly enjoyed this read! Amazing that Capcom basically trolled everyone by continuing to show 1.5 when 2 was well on it's way in development too!

If you use YouTube check out a YouTuber called Residents of Evil (RoE). He's got gameplay of him playing the unfinished build. They also have a heavily inspired old school RE game coming out themselves. Always worth a watch if you're into RE.

Thanks! I think I've seen that channel before. They feature horror games all the time as well as RE don't they? Did think about subscribing to them before. Tempted to download 1.5 and have a go.

I played some of 1.5 and it was good. It's a shame Elza Walker never became an official character.

I remember back in 1997 there is a picture of Leon holding a shotgun running between 2 cells/prisons on his left and right contained zombies at the back of Playstation box (scph-1001) along with other games such Crash Bandicoot etc. Judging the picture quality, i am sure that it was taken from a pre-rendered/FMV scene.

By the time i beat RE2 in 1998 i didn't find the scene. I read this article and i see Leon standing between zombie cells, but that's not what i saw. I am sure it was a picture taken from a prerendered/movie scene.

Too bad i don't have my PS's box anymore. Can someone confirm this? Did you see what i saw at the back of Playstation's box???.

So, it's just that Claire Redfield's looks in the remake that look a tad like that Elza Walker character in RE 1.5 that commands that article?
