Resident Evil 2 ( classic) is one of the series greatest milestones, giving us two of horror gaming greatest icons as well as a truly amazing sequel. While Resident Evil (remake) took everything great about the original and touched it up, the RE2 remake was rebuilt from scratch, aiming to be the perfect fusion of old and new. Did they succeed?
Raccoon City is at the height of utter devastation after the T virus found its way into the open. Leon Kennedy, a rookie cop on his first day on the job is thrown into the madness of the zombie outbreak. He encounters Claire Redfield, a college girl looking for her missing brother Chris. Together they must face the conspiracy around the police station, waves of zombies and gruesome monsters, a unstoppable stalker, and a beast below. Will they survive the night?
The Resident Evil 2 remake soars at redefining a classic. Leon and Claire, as well as the rest of the characters, are flushed out in two lengthy main campaigns; HUNK and Tofu return as well. The graphics and score are beautiful especially on the monsters., accompanied with eerie sounds. Gameplay is a nice upgrade from the 3rd person style of Resident Evil 4 with mechanics thrown in from other parts of the series. Mr X is a force to be reckoned with and is great at adding tension. In the end, the game has plenty to offer and is a fantastic horror experience I highly recommend. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
