Resident Evil 2 Remake Revisited – Three Years on and Still as Impactful

The Resident Evil 2 Remake launched for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC three years ago today, but is it still as relevant today as it was back in 2019?

The story is too old to be commented.

I think it’s fantastic

I just loved the fact that before REVII and after it was “RE had to go first person, it had to change, the old third person way just can’t cut it anymore”

This game showed it can still be done and it’s the most RE like game in years

That's because it was based off of one of the most RE games, not a hard stretch. But it's a fantastic game that I just recently played through and beat. Now I want to play part 3. I missed most of the original Resident Evil games (minus the first) and didn't start playing until 4. So getting to experience these games like this is such a treat.

man you missed out. RE2 original was the best in the series. The remake did an amazing job though.

Re3 went from my favorite or second favorite to one of my least liked after the remake.

It really is a phenomenal game. My Game of the Year when it released.

Clearly I have to go back and give it another shot. I ran through my ammo dealing with that eye-arm-boss and the rest on the damn seemingly endless dogs roaming the police station. I tried running around them, but they just piled up & it became annoying. Limited ammo & degrading knives makes your attacks feel like they count, but it can also paint you into a corner. Especially when zombies can keep getting back up repeatedly until the rare crit explodes their head for good.

Felt like I'd have to start over, and I wasn't keen on that. But people really love this, my good friend included, so perhaps it's time I redownload it & give it another shot.
