like, how? only Remake 1 set the standard, Remake 2 and 3 are not even close to surpassing the originals' design and philosophy, aside from graphics that is.
Remake 3 was a disgrace especially, a textbook on how not to remake a game.

I disagree, 3 jumped the shark, but the RE2 remake was by far the best one yet, and one of the best "remakes" ever made.

RE2 remake is one the most universally loved games in recent years, imo. The hype was real. Still a great game.

Yep, Remake 2 is pretty much how you Remake an old game to meet current standards. Remake 1 though is a good Remake while KEEPING old standards.

RE3 is very lackluster tho.

Remake 2 was good but the original RE2 did some things better. Remake 1 completely outclassed the game it was modeled after. The only place that Remake 2 outshines Remake 1 is in the graphics. And we're not even talking visual design, just graphics.

RE3 Remake was always going to be lackluster. It was a remake of a lackluster game.

1 and 2 are awesome. 3 is alright but definitely needed more time in the oven.

Re2 remake is game of decade. Godly stuff.

All the remakes were good and fun until Capcom dropped the RE 3 remake it didn't live up to the hype the RE2 remake had. That game if it was delayed a little more spent more time being worked on and wasn't half baked I would have loved it to this date I prefer RE3. No matter the console it's on whether PS1, GC, or DC RE 3 the original will always be my favorite.
