Overall, I have to say that this remake is everything I’ve hoped for and more. Capcom has really gone a long way to please the fans of the series, and they have certainly succeeded in that. I heartily recommend this game, not just to fans of the series, but to all gamers who love the horror genre, as this is a game all the fans were crying out for. This is the game that gave me those same thrills I experienced 20 years ago, and I am glad that I had the chance to experience it again.
Finally, Capcom has put a lot of game into Resident Evil 2. It has four remixed campaigns — two each for the playable characters Leon and Claire. But Capcom has also revealed plans to add even more. That includes a mode that randomizes where items are as well as new player characters.
I liked Resident Evil 2, I just didn't love it — and I really wanted to. Perhaps it's my own fault for setting my expectations so high, but I don't think so. Capcom could have, and should have, given us a more challenging, more consistently balanced and thoroughly frightening remake of a timeless classic.
