    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.

And this is exactly whatDue to some of the disappointing releases the last year or so, I was really hoping for a good Resident Evil 2 remake. And this is exactly what I hoped for and more. Capcom did a great job at staying faithful to the original, while employing fresh, new graphics and mechanics. If you were a fan of the original, or are a fan of the series, OR even just a survival horror fanatic, this is the game for you. You will not be disappointed. Anybody can enjoy this release. Expand

There is an overall tension carried through the whole game with unexpected twists at all turns leaving you not knowing what's coming next, not to mention the gameplay, which doesn't hold your hand through it and makes you pay attention to your ammo consumption and healing items. Overall, a sweet comeback to the survival-horror genre from Capcom, and I hope that this trend continues in the following Resident Evil Games. Expand
