The core mechanics of the original are still very present, even amongst a more action-focused playstyle. If anything, this has widened the audience reach to those who've never played the original and want to enjoy a hearty helping of panic and inventory stress.
Tim WhiteJan 29, 2019
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.
Chris BowmanJan 28, 2019
Overall, the quality of Resident Evil 2 Remake is of the highest caliber. The frights and jump scares you will experience will make you want to run and hide. The villains of the game are more frightening than ever and you will feel it when you see things for the first time. Coming in at $59.99 for the retail version and $69.99 USD for the Deluxe version. It is available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 right now so go grab it.

This remake is, without a doubt, the best way to experience Resident Evil 2. Not only is it graphically and mechanically superior to the original, but it contains new content and better characterization. This is especially valuable, as the original hasn’t aged well and its control scheme is more of a novelty that’s worth checking out.
Daemon HatfieldJan 22, 2019
Capcom did a fantastic job of resurrecting all the best parts of the classic Resident Evil 2 and making them look, sound, and play like a 2019 game. If you’re of the mind that the series had lost its way for a while there, this game is very much a return to form. The zombie combat is satisfying and exploring the dilapidated ruins of Raccoon City is a thrill.
Leon HurleyJan 22, 2019
Classic Resident Evil has always been a bit like that though, making these encounters more about taking a couple of goes to get the ‘trick’ you need to win rather than pulling off a slick set of moves. There’s also one encounter involving a swinging shipping container that’s a disaster. It takes place in a tiny area barely bigger than the monster you’re fighting and really highlights the limits of the controls.
Miserable ScribeJan 27, 2019
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.
Nathan BirchJan 22, 2019
Resident Evil 2 is a polished, respectful remake of a survival horror classic that probably would have benefitted from a slightly more daring approach. Hints of a braver revamp are sprinkled throughout, but it doesn’t take the risks necessary to join the canon of truly great video game remakes. Make no mistake though, if you loved the original Resident Evil 2, you’ll likely love the remake, and new players who can tolerate a few old-school quirks ought to have a gruesome good time as well.
Alessandro FillariJan 22, 2019
Resident Evil 2 is not only a stellar remake of the original, but it's also simply a strong horror game that delivers anxiety-inducing and grotesque situations, topping some of the series' finest entries. But above all, the remake is an impressive game for the fact that it goes all-in on the pure survival horror experience, confidently embracing its horrifying tone and rarely letting up until the story's conclusion.
Andy KellyJan 22, 2019
This is pretty much the ultimate refinement of the classic Resident Evil formula—but with the added intensity of RE4's slick, dynamic over-the-shoulder combat. The result is a game that is comfortably among the best in the series, and a thrilling survival horror experience in its own right. It's not as surprising as RE7, but as an evolution, and a celebration, of vintage Resident Evil, you couldn't ask for much more.
Jon SuttonFeb 03, 2019
All told, Resident Evil 2 is an utterly fantastic remake, reimagining a 90’s classic for a modern audience with modern sensibilities. A single playthrough is slight at about 8-10 hours, but every minute is oozing with quality. If that’s enough for you there are also alternative routes with other characters, a couple of secret modes and some fairly crazy unlockables for those who absolutely master the game. Resident Evil 2 is a brilliant rendition of one of the finest survival horror experiences of all time.
Jeff GrubbJan 22, 2019
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.
Rob LeaneJan 22, 2019
Newcomers among players will likely discover a new favourite horror franchise to explore, while long-time followers of the series will find a sweet blend of familiarity and freshness. Whichever camp you fall into, you’ll find your mind and your mettle tested in equal measure as you fiddle your way through this gloriously gory (and occasionally gruelling) reanimation of a classic.
Chris PriestmanJan 25, 2019
Capcom’s remake is a spectacularly gory game that brings a classic in line with horror titles of today, and only at the loss of some of the original’s beloved goofiness.
AthanasiosApr 05, 2020
The world you'll be thrown in is a dangerous one, and it doesn't just look the part, but also makes you feel the thrill of being a survivor like never before, as each bullet shot, each item found, and each decision taken, can make the difference between life and death. Simply put, remake or not, this is survival horror at its best.
Chris J CapelJan 22, 2019
We loved every moment of Resident Evil 2, and even if you know the first game inside out, you won’t know the Remake at all. If you’ve ever loved a Resident Evil game, or wished that RE7 was third-person, want to go back to RE2 and its great horror design, or just want a horror-action game… get Resident Evil 2 Remake. You won’t be disappointed.
Salva FernándezJan 22, 2019
Resident Evil 2 va mucho más allá de ser una puesta al día de un clásico. Su tarea a la hora reinterpretar al original, redefinirlo y removerlo para sorprender a nuevos y veteranos es encomiable. El equilibrio entre exploración, acción y rompecabezas es, además, casi perfecto, como lo es la manera de presentar y rememorar casi todos los momentos míticos del título.
Luis SánchezJan 25, 2019
Ejemplo de esto fue el primer remake que llegó a GameCube y, cuando no se lo propone, nombres como Code: Veronica para la misma plataforma resuenan en la mente. Por el momento, no podemos evitar colmar a Capcom y a Resident Evil 2 de ovaciones porque cumplió en volver a entregar la experiencia de terror que los fans de la serie extrañaban. Simplemente, un gran clásico convertido en una joya eterna.
Michael KrostaJan 23, 2019
Man kann nur hoffen, dass es auch andere Entwickler dazu anspornt, ihre vergessenen und unvergessenen Perlen mit einem ähnlichen Aufwand zu restaurieren, wie es Capcom hier vorgemacht hat. Zeit und Geld wären dort jedenfalls besser investiert als in neuen Produktionen, in denen man sich vornehmlich mit Konzepten für die Einbindung von Lootboxen oder Miktrotransaktionen beschäftigt.
Valentin AschenbrennerJan 24, 2019
Für Resident Evil 2 war ich zu seiner Zeit zu jung. Dank Capcom kann ich mit dem Remake einen der größten Klassiker der Videospiel-Geschichte nachholen – ohne mich mit schlecht gealterten Mechaniken und Grafiken herumschlagen müssen, die nun mal einfach nicht mehr zeitgemäß sind. Das Remake von Resident Evil 2 ist nicht nur gelungen, es übertrifft jegliche Erwartungen.
Michael HeroldJan 24, 2019
Ich habe mir seit ich drei Jahre alt war nicht mehr in die Hose gemacht. Beim Remake von Resident Evil 2 wäre es fast wieder so weit gewesen, denn der Gruselfaktor der Neuauflage trifft genau meinen Geschmack als Horror-Fan. Die genauso ekelhaft wie furchteinflößend designten Zombies hätten mich beim Testen immer wieder beinahe dazu gebracht, den PC aus Panik einfach auszuschalten.
Maximilien CagnardJan 22, 2019
On s'y attendait, mais Resident Evil 2 est bel et bien la grande claque de ce début d'année. Non content d'être un magnifique hommage à la version originale, il s'agit d'un jeu moderne et puissant, jouant parfaitement avec les codes de l'ancienne et l'actuelle génération pour une terreur globale fascinante. Le survival-horror n'est pas mort et Capcom montre, une nouvelle fois, qu'il sait formidablement bien manier l'un des styles qui a fait sa réputation, vingt ans plus tôt.
Romain MahutJan 22, 2019
Ce petit reproche mis de côté, Resident Evil 2 procure une expérience à la fois moderne et digne, en termes de sensations, des premiers Resident Evil. Et pour les nouveaux venus, ce remake devrait être particulièrement percutant. Resident Evil 2 fait passer un terrifiant mais néanmoins excellent moment et laisse avec l'envie de remettre ça très vite. Pour le remake de Resident Evil 3, c'est quand tu veux Capcom.
LoganJan 22, 2019
S'inscrivant dans la continuité d'un Resident Evil VII sombre et stressant, Resident Evil 2 parvient à nous replonger dans Raccoon City à travers sa vision plus que jamais orientée survival. Jouant avec nos nerfs du début à la fin, ré-imaginant certaines séquences cultes pour les rendre plus actuelles et impressionnantes, le titre de Capcom s'amuse 20 heures durant à jouer avec nos souvenirs et nos peurs pour mieux nous retourner à travers une aventure plus éprouvante que par le passé.
Aníbal GonçalvesJan 22, 2019
Para resumi-lo aos fãs, pensem em Resident Evil 2 com visuais modernos e o melhor grotesco da série, com os sistemas e ritmo do 4, misturados com os elementos que lhe devolveram o Survival Horror, em Resident Evil 7. Se é obrigatório para eles? Absolutamente.
Tommaso PuglieseJan 28, 2019
Resident Evil 2 si conferma un prodotto eccellente anche su PC, forte di una quantità enorme di regolazioni che consentono di personalizzare l'esperienza in vari modi, adattandola alla componentistica in nostro possesso al fine di ottenere un gameplay più fluido oppure un migliore colpo d'occhio per quanto concerne dettagli ed effettistica.
ValthielJan 22, 2019
Resident Evil 2 rappresenta un clamoroso ritorno, il modo migliore per riportare in auge la serie e imprimere una nuova direzione che collima con quella del passato e ne rappresenta il suo ideale proseguimento. Non ci sono grandi appunti da fare alla scelta di Capcom e a come ha diretto questo remake. La software di Osaka è ritornata, finalmente, a essere quella di un tempo.
Сергей ЦилюрикJan 22, 2019
Когда глупейшие поступки персонажей сменяются осмысленными, когда казавшиеся сверхкрасивыми пререндеренные декорации оживают в честно трехмерном исполнении куда более высокого качества, когда каждая локация одновременно и вызывает чувство ностальгии, и удивляет чем-то новым, сомнений не остается: ремейк удался.
Ersin KılıçJan 22, 2019
Kısacası Resident Evil 2'nin eski versiyonuna mümkün olduğu kadar sadık kaldığını ama bunu yeni teknoloji, ses ve görsel efektler ile perçinlediğini söyleyebilirim. Umarım Capcom'un son yıllarda yapmış olduğu köklü değişiklik ve bunun sonucunda yakalamış olduğu başarıyı Resident Evil 2 Remake'in satışlarında da yakalar. Çünkü oyunu bitirdiğinizde aklınızda sıradaki oyunu beklemek olacağı gibi, kulağınızda ise sadece bir kelime çınlayacak... STARSSSSSS....
Calvin FoeJan 22, 2019
Resident Evil 2 heeft een ongekend enge atmosfeer waar andere horrorgames nog wel een puntje aan kunnen zuigen. De fantastische graphics, geweldig sound design, de memorabele omgevingen en verschrikkelijke vijanden zorgen ervoor dat jij je bijna nergens veilig voelt. Grafisch spat de game van het scherm.
WojtiniJan 30, 2019
Resident Evil 2 prezentuje się niesamowicie zarówno w kwestii graficznej jak i gameplayu. To remake dopracowany w każdym detalu. Zombie jeszcze nigdy nie prezentowały się tak dobrze.
بهرام بی غرضFeb 07, 2019
نسخه ریمیک RE2 تلاش موفق شرکت کپکام در خلق یک عنوان تمام عیار است. آن‌ها با استفاده از فرمول موفق میکامی و تغییراتی در بستر آن موفق شده‌اند گیم‌پلی نابی که مدت‌ها در سری دنبال آن بودیم را دوباره خلق کنند. هر چند نیمه دوم بازی به خوبی بخش‌های ابتدایی نیست و دیگر نه خبری از پازل‌ها و معما‌ های مختلف می‌شود و نه خبری از MR. X یا دیگر غول آخرها که این موضوع به ریتم بازی آسیب وارد می‌کند. برای مشاهده بررسی ویدیویی Resident Evil 2 را در یوتوب کلیک کنید.

Resident Evil 2 akoby ani nemal vyše 20 rokov. Omladzovacia kúra mu veľmi prospela a je ako zrelá osobnosť, čo má šarm, eleganciu a hrateľnosť overenú časom, ktorá nestarne a stále ukazuje svoju jedinečnosť. Klasický štýl, charakteristický najmä pre prvé časti série, je nenásilne prispôsobený modernej dobe a stále ponúka niečo unikátne, čo vám ani mnohé súčasné tituly jednoducho nedajú.
