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

"Resident Evil 2" First Full Playthrough Impressions

Writers Note: As a long-time fan of the series (and I mean “ long-time ”), I felt it my “duty” to play through this game as soon as it hit shelves. With a 20 oz red bull by my side, I ended up powering through the entirety of Leon S. Kennedy’s campaign in one night/sitting. I even found most of the unlockables and opened every safe and locker with the clues given in the game. Even though I am a fan of the series, I do want to mention, I remove all biases when I approach an impression or review of a game. Take it from me, a classic Sonic (emphasis on classic ) fan who loves to rip Sonic Team a new one daily on their poor decisions and terrible games. I do not look through my experiences with nostalgia, I look through them thinking of it how they fair as a stand-alone title today. Being a fan of this series does not mean I will not have negative opinions if there is something to be pointed out. With all these things said, keep in mind, this is a FIRST IMPRESSION and
