Resident Evil 4 Remake's Improved Controls Make It Hard To Go Back To Raccoon City

While the Resident Evil 4 remake succeeds in making Leon more capable, doing so makes playing its predecessors feel clunky by comparison.

There is one thing I think the RE2 Remake does better and that’s movement speed

Even moving around enemies in the RE2 remake was better

If you try to run past enemies in RE4 and one is directly in your way, it’s harder to swerve around them and they’ll most likely grab you

Even running from enemies you seem slower. If I was running at Leon’s speed in RE4 in RE2 while being chased by Mr X I feel like he’d have been right on my ass constantly with no breathing room. Sometimes it feels like Leon is trying to run in tar.

I like your observation on running speed.

Chard166d ago

if we're being charitable, we can note that it's a remake of a game that was designed around not being able to walk while aiming, so perhaps this was an effort at balancing and maintaining tension

ZeekQuattro167d ago

Indeed. If Leon handled in here the way he did in RE2 remake it would of been a problem. Leon's aiming spasms don't help either. The enemies are faster than ever and Leon decides to get a case of the tremors every now and then.

Peoples excuse is “well he’s carrying around a lot of gear” but let’s be honest when does logic ever factor into these games. Not to mention canon wise Leon isn’t going around with a massive rocket launcher or other weapons he’s found all at once in a “case” is he.

It’s like “Leon you’re being chased by a bunch of parasite infested villagers with weapons and that one over there is coming at you with a f****** chainsaw, hurry the f*** up man”

Joke's on you, I'm playing with Control Type C1.


Resident Evil 3 Remake is one of the best RE games, actually

Resident Evil 3 Remake is one of the most debated games in Capcom’s survival horror series, but it’s just as good as the remake of Resident Evil and 2019’s RE2.

It’s a good game, but a terrible Remake.

I would choose the original over this Remake any day of the week. More areas, more enemies, more bosses, choice options, better unlockables, and I could go on and on.

If you go into this Remake as it’s own game and not compare it to what it’s, uh, Remaking, then yea it’s a solid game.

But I do not consider the Remake portion of this game to be “good,” like at all.

The remake was inferior to RE2R in everyway capcom even said the B team made it the physics was so dumbed down it was such a big disappointment the A team that made RE2 was busy making RE4R

Walalon2d ago

And the whole idea of Nemesis "looking for you" was ripped off entirely making this Remake more than a knock off lol

solideagle2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Didn't Capcom themselves
say the same thing that they will improve Quality and make Remake Lengthy or something along the same lines because RE3R was not received as good as RE2R critically

-Foxtrot2d ago

Not only that they literally snatched the RE4 off them and restarted development within the main team. That’s how bad the fallout was.

They tried to be cheap and it blew up in their face

It makes me super sad to think of how amazing RE3 could have been

We could have had hubs within the city to explore, to fully experience the Raccoon City downfall in all its glory…but they rushed it.

That boss fight on Inferno. Absolutely no.

Sure it was scripted quite a bit but I enjoyed it. Really good replayability as well.

Dandizzle2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

When I look back at re2 re4 and re4 remakes to which I beat all of them at launch. Re3 is the one I recall having more fun more of the time. Re2 and re4 get over stressful on harder difficulties.

Re4 remake was also great, but I liked re3 remake better

NovusTerminus3d ago

I can't comment on the "remake" aspect as I never played 3, didn't like tank controls even back then.

But as far as the remake goes as a game, I've got like 40 hours in it and played it far more then the 2 remake. I absolutely enjoyed the combat engine and dodge mechanic.

nommers2d ago

I gotta agree with the replay value of the game. Despite the cut areas it still feels like you’re going through more areas than RE2 remake. That and the Nemesis isn’t as annoying as the Tyrant.

BlackTar1872d ago

lol you can beat the game in under 3 hours on your first thorough and under 45 mins on your second without even trying to rush. The game has less content then some demos.

nommers2d ago


Don’t exaggerate so hard. You’ll live longer.

BlackTar1872d ago

If you look up playtime you can see most people beat it between 3-5 hours on the first playthrough and the trophy for sprinter which is beat the game in under 2 hours is a high percentage trophy compared to any other speed run trophies. So no I won’t change what I said. I’d wager with the infinite rpg you could get that even lower then 45 mins. My actual save says 57 mins

nommers2d ago


You can beat a lot of games in under 3 hours as a speed runner. Who cares.

Average time play through says about 6 hours, but for full completion it says 20 1/2 hours. First time through for me I took my time and took about 8 hours. Then again I’m not trying to race through the game. That’s about the same time for RE2 remake for a first time through, which even with multiple paths doesn’t have much extra content outside any given run.
