Resident Evil 2 is around the corner and it is a great game to play. Not only has Capcom updated the game with modern graphics and controls it has gone a step ahead and made the game from scratch while keeping the essence of the original game intact. This might sound easy to do but we have seen developers get it wrong over the years but Capcom has done a marvellous job with Resident Evil 2.
Keeping in mind that the original game came out 20 years ago, a remember nothing about the original title besides the fact that I loved it and that I played it a couple of time. Diving into the remake did remind me of some events of the original game but it was overall a new experience for me and it was a great one. Having said that, it is safe to say that people who have not played the original will have a great time as well.
Resident Evil 2 remake is more immersive than the older one. As is the case with RE games, your ammo and inventory are limited and you will find yourself barely making do with what you have. This will keep you on your feet at all times and give you a feeling of constant danger. The sound design is also impressive and adds another layer of immersion.
You can choose to play as Leon or Claire but you will find that much of the story is overlapped and the content is shared. While Resident Evil 2 is not a very long game it is an exciting one and if you are a fan of the franchise then you should check it out. The demo gives you a taste of what the game has to offer but there is a lot more in the full version of the game.
Capcom has done a great job with Resident Evil 2 and I think that other developers can learn a thing or two about remaking games and take this as an example.
