Waiting for a Resident Evil remake has always been a dream come true for franchise fans, especially the second game. And when fans were confirmed by Capcom that the RE2 remake was on its way, many went wild, especially as they saw the new outfit of their favorite characters like Leon and Claire. When finally, this year 2019, Capcom delivered to fans what they wanted most for over two decades.
Capcom's incredible 2002 remake of the original Resident Evil is perhaps the best horror game ever made, so expectations about quality were high before the RE2 remake. Modern third-person gameplay merges with traditional mechanics and survival terror. Don't let the improved aiming system make you think it's an action game – zombies ignore more shots than ever. The resilience and agility of enemies prioritizes evasion over destruction, which increases the tension of every encounter. Ammo and life are still your best and most precious friends.

In addition to the intuitive changes, the remake comes with significant gameplay options. Knives can be used both offensively and defensively as a last resort, with new strategic options. An item creation system similar to RE7 lets players create their own ammo. Many stylish 90's fanny packs can be found to increase your inventory. Capcom got the details right and improves survival horror systems.
The fearsome Tyrant (Mr. X for the closest) arrives uninvited in the main RE2 campaign, unlike the original 1998, where he hoped to terrorize only the second time he played. Tyrant is immense, unbeatable, quite a threat. The biological weapon is a tribute to slasher films injected into an already intense zombie apocalypse. Their heavy and oppressive footsteps echo through the police department, constantly reminding players that they are in danger. Her ability to chase him endlessly around the building makes running and hiding in a safe room feel more relieving than ever. Tyrant is the epitome of what Capcom got right in this remake, capitalizing on the original gameplay potential and staying true to the RE universe.
Resident Evil 2 was an ambitious sequel in 1998, occupying two PlayStation albums – one for Leon S. Kennedy and one for Claire Redfield. After players finished the game with one character, they could live the terrible events from the other's point of view. The remake preserves this ingenious formula by offering four distinct games. Playing RE2 more than once is where the title (and series) really shine, letting players who start almost dying become masters of evasion against zombies. Decorating the police department map, navigating the labyrinthine sewers, unlocking bonus weapons (unlimited ammo!) For subsequent moves is part of the full RE 2 experience.

More than 20 years after the celebrated original, the Resident Evil 2 remake is undoubtedly a great tip for anyone who played the classic or never had the original, and is the definitive definition of the horror experience. This remake shows that the Capcom team – who invented the genre in 1996 – still deserves the title of survival terror masters. RE2 can always be tense and fun. And the fun is not over – the recent ESCAPE announcement has left many excited fans trying to survive in Raccoon City once again.
