Resident Evil 2 Review

I assumed this game was going to make me feel like I was playing Resident Evil 2 for the first time all over again like in the original PlayStation days. They share the same name, so I was expecting the obvious. But this game quickly reminds me… this is not a remake. ‘Remake’ isn’t the correct title for this game. This is a reimagining of the original game. Yes, it shares a name and shares the same setting and story of the original, yet it brings it to a whole new level by presenting itself as a stand-alone game and never resting on its laurels riding off the back of the popularity of the “original.”’ Yes, there are throwbacks to the original title that some old fans of the series will get a kick out of, but ultimately, this is a stand-alone/re-do of an older generation story/game. Resident Evil 2 brings the best things from the classic survival horror genre into the now. Even though the controls might not be “tanky” like many of the classic horror genre’s titles
