Capcom’s remake of Resident Evil 2 appears to be doing well for itself on PC, already boasting more than three times the number of players of the previous mainline entry in the series, Resident Evil 7.
Obviously it’s better by a mile One of the best RE titles for a long time, it’s fantastic
It really is, hell I'd go as far to say that this is probably my favorite Resident Evil game as of now. It truly is a masterpiece.
Agree!! At the moment GOTY and it’s just beginning of the year.
obviously... RE 7 is not even a RE game....its a piece of st that never should have been born
Great! Great job, Capcom. Thank you Mikami and Kamiya san for the original.
Bro, the san's are reading this lol
I skipped 7 because I had no interest in a first person RE and don't own PSVR.
I almost skipped it because of that too, but I gave it a go. I'm you don't need the psvr and it was a pretty enjoyable game. Far better than that mess that was RE6. Despite the setting and plot of RE7 it felt more like a RE title than the past few mainstream entries.
I'm shocked they pulled the franchise out of the burial ground they made for it after Resident Evil 6 happened. Shocked, but impressed. Capcom should treat all of their franchises like the way they are currently treating RE.
True! I'm actually curious to know what they plan to do from the franchise from here. It would be interesting if they rebooted/remade the entire series, but altered the story later on so it doesn't get crazy like RE5 and RE6 did. I don't know if Capcom would actually go to that effort, but it would be pretty cool if they did.
Thanks for the great discussion. It really helped to understand more in detail. Thank You.
As bad as 6 was the western spinoffs were far worse. Even as recent as this generation with Umbrella Corps set in the RE universe that was so insanely bad it made Raccoon City on 360 looks passable. RE6 for all its problems looked like RE4 next to them. It would have been really hard to sink lower than Umbrella Corps.
To be fair RE7 came out a year ago and was big on ps4 and psvr, would expect the newest release to be doing better lol
2 years ago.
Because it’s 3x better?
That's because RE isn't a first person franchise and RE7 wasn't the greatest. RE7 made a horror first person but I wouldn't consider it an RE game. RE2 remake went back to how the games should be, can how they were back in the 90's with great improvements.
It was a fixed camera angle franchise, it was a 3rd person over the shoulder franchise and a first person/VR franchise. RE is a franchise that changes things up when things get stale.
Did you never play the survivor games on ps1? It was first person, and a light gun game lol, Resi has dabbled in all sorts from the get go.
It's a better game plus it banks on nostalgia.
all those 4k textures. don‘t mistake filesize for quality, it‘s still a freaking remake. duh. a good one, but still a remake aka no one needs them. but people are screaming for repetition as they are screaming for generic online experiences. goes way beyond me.
No one needs them? Are you reading the same article? I'm pretty sure a lot of people need this. It's not repetition at all, have you actually played the game? I would barely call it a remake, Capcom have really nailed it with RE2.
With the recent success of remakes from capcom and Sony it's clear that remakes are going to be the next big thing after remasters. I hope bioware won't miss their chance with mass effect remake.
ofc it is, its resident evil.. not black bin bag monster imitation of resident evil game which was 7
