But yeah, so hyped at the Resident Evil 2 remake. It looks incredible in the VII engine and, from what we can see, already dispels all the fears that people were saying that OTS would immediately take away from the fear and atmosphere of the original.
I can't tell for sure because it's so dark but it seems like they mostly stuck with Leon's weirdly overdesigned police jumpsuit from the original while feeling free to redesign Claire which I'm not happy about. It's nothing as bad as "Chris" from RE7 tho. Other then that, looks ****ing great!
Mayor's daughter, Mr. X, corny "survival is your responsibility" Hunk line, check check. All systems go. I cannot wait for this game!
Why don't they have a trailer for Claire? She was the REAL star of RE2. I know that Leon is more recognizable, but she's still one of the only two playable characters! Although I have to say, I don't like how they redesigned her face. Too baby-faced, maybe. I wonder what Ada will look like in this game.
Loving the look of this. I think I played the original RE2 enough to get bored of it, so hopefully me experience with this game isn't affected by that. Hopefully it is different enough. I think perhaps the most important part in my view, the sense of a looming threat, will certainly be improved in this game. In the original, my imagination went wild, making those polygonal enemies more scary than they actually were. Can't wait to see what they do with the William Birkin character, with improved graphics, never mind everything else.
The choice to insert the original soundtrack swap only as a bonus for the deluxe version left me a little perplexed. Capcom this time you bought me.
