In RESIDENT EVIL 2, the classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series returns. Players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City that transformed its population into deadly zombies. Both Leon and Claire have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters’ perspectives.
The fate of these two fan favorite characters is in players hands as they work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack on the city. Will they make it out alive?.
This re-imagining of Resident Evil 2 is everything a Resident Evil fan could ask for, taking the series back to its roots without feeling old. It is single-player survival horror at its finest, and quite possibly the best Resident Evil game ever made.
Quite simply, this is Resident Evil at its finest.
Perfectly captures the essence of the original while offering something completely new.
The new Resident Evil 2 is everything the original was; tense, scary, brilliant and filled with secrets and additional content to find. But it's also a game perfectly suited to 2019, not just because of its cutting edge look and sound; but because we don't get games like this anymore, and that's a shame.
Even with some inconsistencies between the scenarios, this game had a lot of time put into it and you should definitely pick it up if you enjoyed the original game. Fans of RE7 will really enjoy the remake since it nearly has the same type of gameplay (only with a third person camera). The remake does not outdo the original on every single level, but it definitely is the version that I'd choose to play from now on. No matter what flaws I point out, this game consists of so much win that the flaws get drowned out in the end.
Now THIS is how you remake a classic. Resident Evil 2 expertly reanimates the horrifying atmosphere and moments of extreme tension that made the original so revered.
If one were to judge a horror title solely on its ability to suspend its audience in a state of dreadful tension, Resident Evil 2 would be quite accomplished.
