With 2019's Resident Evil 2, the franchise reached an impressive new high; this year's Resident Evil 3 might not be able to live up to expectations.
Short answer: With Nemesis, yes!
Initially I would've said yes but I've been surprised by alot of people who didn't like Mr X in RE2 Remake because he made the game too challenging (which was kind of the point). Nemesis is clearly going to be hunting you just as much as Mr X except this time he has a flamethrower and a rocket launcher.
I'd be surprised if I saw someone say that Mr X made RE2 challenging, cause he wasn't hard to deal with. What I do see people saying and what Ive experienced is that he gets in the way of the gameplay. He's a walking easter egg that stops the game in its tracks when he shows up. Unlike in the original RE2, he's just an unnecessary annoyance in the remake.
Yeah. Apart from a couple of scripted areas where he's blocking off corridors full of enemies and such he becomes an annoyance after a while. He's not that challenging but sometimes like in the library you're just running up and down stairs in circles while he chases you and it even feels kind of silly. But I think the more linear nature of RE3 will work to its benefit since Nemesis encounters will probably be more action oriented instead of running around a table while he keeps walking towards you.
YeH all these kids can’t hack a real challenge in games. I personally loved mr x in 2 all the way to the platinum . And I’ll be doing the same with 3 . These are the type of games I love being more of a challenge . Real classic survival horror like it used to be . If you just want to go around blowing away zombies maybe cod zombies is more for the kids .
Yeah cuz baiting a whiffed punch and going around, tossing a flash grenade, or running circles around the library is seriously challenging. Don't go anywhere near Super Mario, bro. That game is just waiting to crush your soul.
