PC Invasion: “You might be surprised to find out that a lot of people didn't actually finish the Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo.”
I didn't cause I had to look at every nook and cranny...the trip down to memory lane was too much...need to get this gem.
I finished on PC and not Xbox One. I looked at so much stuff and even boarded up the window randomly. Yeah, it’s gonna be a for sure day one!
“A Lot Of People Didn't Complete The Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo” It’s hard to complete the demo when you have a stupid time limit.
Didn't find it that difficult. I didn't see a timer on the screen but I didn't stand about waiting for it to end either. Completed the demo in 19m27sec. The game felt great. But my first issue was the zombies looked/acted a lot like they came out of dead rising but just polished up a bit. The demo was really short, but it was a good look at what re2 is on this gen.
Same I didn't care about completing it I jut wanted to look around and catch the vibes
Same I played it till time was up. I explored for every piece of ammo and item. I don’t know why they put a time limit in the demo. This isn’t the kind of game I rush through. Either way I enjoyed what I played and sold me on buying it
Most people who buy full games don't even get basic, progression-based achievements/trophies (The Simpsons Movie game has an achievement just for pressing start at the title screen, and that wasn't 100% earned) only a few hours into a game, so this is normal.
Not surprising to me with a very limited time to play.
For real. I died once, than after not figuring out exactly what I was suppose to do, I saw the map, and that. The one room was red (meaning I hadn’t completed everything in it, and found the window to jump down from. Once I did, I only had 58-59 seconds left and was so annoyed.
Yea because they didn’t want to rush and complete it. It sure would’ve been nice exploring the environment and trying to solve some of those puzzles at my own pace. Look, let’s be real a “1-shot” demo is stupid. The only reason I can’t say it’s pointless is in the good ol’ words of Keiji Inafune, “It’s better than nothing!”
I didn't both on PS4 and PC. PC version I got a little lost (thanks to not spotting the window in office until to late). PS4 one was exploring a little was about to finish just opened the door with the key to return to the main hall and demo ended due to time expiring.
I'm not even playing it, I'm not doing that to myself.
Because many people go into demos and check out how the gameplay feels to see if they will like it and that's it.
Of course not it’s 30min, yes there are ways to get around this issue but most people just want to play one time and wait for the full game.
There's a way to erase the steam achievements so that you can start over and have a full time limit. Then, download the trainer and freeze the timer. The trainer also let's you spawn in items. I spawned in the lever to turn the steam blocking the entrance to the bathroom or the second story.
Yeah no shit
Well, no ****. This was obviously expected when they said this would be a "One Shot" Demo. For a survival horror linear single player game, this was an odd decision. Along with the fact that (1) the game is already close to release anyway, and (2) games like this are meant to be EXPLORED, not rushed. Think what would happen if DMC5 had the same treatment?
Gee I wonder why....
Most folks want to be cautious & take their time to explore when playing a game like Resident Evil even in a demo,something one can't do in 30 minutes. I'll be doing all that when I buy the physical copy of the full game with no 30 minute time cap.
I'm sure there would be a few people who played a little bit of it and thought "yep, I've seen enough. I'll wait until the full game comes out and I'll jump right in". I didn't even download it. I haven't even seen any gameplay of the demo. I just know I'm going to buy it.
We’ll I spent 10 minutes playing, 20 minutes changing my pants. Needless to say it was a “shitty” experience
18mins for me
according to the trophy lists most people do not even finish the games they paid for. point being?
I barely got time to do much at all, which is fine, as not even 5 minutes in I was sold on the game 100% and didn't want to progress too much as I'll be replaying everything again next week. I've finished RE1(PS), RE2(PS), RE3(PS), RE2(DC), RE:CV(DC), RE(GC), RE4(GC) and RE5(PS3). I also played through a big chunk of RE Revelations(3DS) and started RE6, but lost interest around then and RE7 didn't interest me at all. After playing the RE2 1-shot demo... I haven't been this excited for an Resident Evil game since REmake on GameCube.
I spent way to long just admiring and exploring stuff to compare it to the OG.... then before i knew it time was up.
I quit due to boredom. I was done with finding weird stuff to slot in weird locks in the 90s.
Some maybe wanted to enjoy it, taking it slow exploring everything and ignoring the time...
The dog ate my homework.
Since I didn't play the original, I took my sweet ass time with it. The game is great and controls are structured perfectly. Can't wait to dive straight into the finished product.
