Re 2 is survival horror at its peak and nearly perfects it. The love and care put into the environments fills the halls of the station with a foreboding and tense atmosphere but doesn't forget to convey the personality of the world and its inhabitants before it all went to hell, with environmental storytelling and letters left behind. Managing your inventory is still key but the addition of being able to upgrade the no. of slots by finding pouches and being able to discard iraticates any frustrations I had with the original. The gameplay is smooth and tight saying goodbye to tank controls and hello to 8th gen controls. While using your arsenal of weapons never felt better the enemy is still a threat, with even the basic zombie being able to take multiple headshots before going down and the tougher enemies are real resource drainers. The resource management conundrum of whether it's worth it killing a enemy or deciding to try to run around them. and terror the creatures envoke is exactly what I want out of the genre. The puzzles return and are just as well balanced as before challenging but not frustrating. The addition of Mr X however is what makes the game special. The unkillable brute follows you around everywhere and the sounds of his footsteps instantly put you on edge. The two playable characters of Chris and Claire are really well acted and a joy to play with through this well told story. There arsenal changes, story changes and unique area make both playthroughs a must with Claire's being my preference. The only downside is the lackluster boss fights that bring the game down a little. Overall a must play game for anyone remotely interested in giving it a shot

Not a lot of remakes are good. This is game is clear example how remake should be done.

The game stayed true to the original in story and suspense. The switch from isometric to third person was nice. I had a blast from this game.

My complaints about the Resident Evil 2 remaster are minimal. An argument could be made that Capcom could have done more, but the spirit of the original has been preserved and in many cases, enhanced. I hope every legacy game in the series gets this loving treatment, as I'll probably be playing them for the rest of my life.

Resident Evil 2 might be one of the most accomplished remakes of the generation. A number of mechanics have been updated and introduced in order to bring the game into the modern era, but this is still very much the classic experience you remember – inventory management, limited ammunition, and all. Capcom has lovingly recreated every historic location and moment you remember from 1998, and you owe it to yourself to witness that spectacle first-hand.

Resident Evil 2 is definitely worth the price of admission, especially for horror fans or fans of the Resident Evil franchise. The game pays homage to the original release while successfully updating the experience for modern audiences. It’s not perfect, but it’s close, and here’s hoping it inspires Capcom to remake other Resident Evil games in a similar style.
