It's very good. Some hardcore fanboys get super picky on it, but as someone who enjoyed the original this hits right in the feels.

 

It has all the extra game modes from the original that I remember and new ones I think. The familiar stuff is there but changed around and reworked. Puzzles are a bit reduced though.

 

And Mr X will make you shit your pants as you scramble to progress the game just to rid of him.

 

They also brought back the gun powder mixing system from RE 3. But you only get 2 components instead of 3, so you can't mix all the ammo types sadly.

 

I'm doing Claires' playthrough currently, just finishing the sewers.

Thoroughly enjoyed it myself, has 2 campaigns with an A and B option that changes things around. Sadly, as I feared, the recent RE3 seems to be an attempt at milking the money cow dry and is basically a 4-6 hr copy cat of this game, using mostly the same assets.

You are absolutely right.

 

I watched a 2 1/2 hour review of each. before selecting my purchase.

 

Pardon me. RE 3 was about 45 minutes. Same content creator...

 

RE3 cut too much, and the definitive decision to not support was that they did not Include Mercenaries.

 

Which was too bad, that game mode alone made RE3 my favorite of the series.

If you have never played a Resident evil before start with the first remake on steam with a DS4 controller.

 

It's about 20 bucks canadian. Play this while you wait for re 2 to go on sale.

 

It's the definitive Resident evil experience in all aspects. This game is the definitive experience in most aspects.

 

The playstyles between the twwo are completely different, so you will have to learn a new set of skills for each, but both are worth their weight in gold. What this game doesn't have is the FIXED camera angles of the originals. Which depicted beautifully atmospheric scenes and intentional blind spot to pull fast ones on you your first time through.

 

They only switched to over the shoulder camera from RE4 and onwards.

 

Also the first game is a real example of a PERFECT remake. Everything was preserved from the first, new things were expanded upon, puzzles added, new enemy types, new areas of the mansion. New plot elements, even creepier atmosphere, clausterphobic spaces, and more tense score.

 

Play this, and you will understand why fans HATE all of the movies.

 

There are several game modes.

 

Story is your primary and then they have new game plus modes as well as different mini games involving the map typically unlocked when you complete the story or in some cases reach certain achievements.

 

As long as you don't rush your first time you'll get at least 10 hours of a quality story experience, plus 10 -20 of other games modes, and up to 40 in repeat runs with starting rewards and time attacks for better ranking which also mean more starting loot.

 

Play RE 1 remake, Re Zero (Prequel to 1) Re2 remake, Re 3 original (Ps1 or emulator only) or Re3 remake on 75% off. RE Code Veronica, RE4. 5 and 6 deviate away further from the core values of this series, but are fun games and add some story. Not nearly as good as the others.

Yes.

 

RE 1, 0, 3 original, and code Veronica are classic gameplay. fixed cameras, atmosphere and puzzle oriented.

Yes the controls may feel awkward at first, give it an hour, and understand when you die because of a camera angle that was probably on purpose.

 

RE 2 re make, 3 RM, 4, 5, 6 are over the shoulder. More action oriented, fast paced, cool eye candy.

 

Code Veronica is basically RE 3.5. It's one of the last games to use the old style, and roughly around the time the creators wanted to up the octane to combat. Downside, it has some of the worst voice acting in the series. Sometimes cringe worthy.

 

Re 2 remake keeps the new style, but slows down the octane for most of the game, and focuses more on fear factor.

 

A neat bonus that helps alot, is that you can mod Re2 to have Playstation command prompts instead of xbox. (Yes they should have native input selection.)

 

I would say for your first playthrough that should be the only mod you use.

 

Finally, in games where you can select between two characters, the game plays different, and you get access to different supplies and routes.

 

In RE1 you choose between Chris and Jill.

 

Chris has more HP, a slightly higher decapitation chance with his shots, and starts with a lighter key item that I believe does not take an inventory slot. He also gets access to grenade defensive weapons. But, he does not start with his gun (Lost in the forest) Has only 6 inventory slots, and has to carry more key items. = Challenge and combat oriented.

 

Jill has 8 inventory slots, starts with her gun, also starts with a lockpick to open some areas early, can get the shotgun faster, and can solve some puzzles herself without the story progression that Chris requires. But she has less hp, and a taser defensive weapon instead of grenades (No decaps) and a lower decap chance with her shots. = Quality of life and progression oriented.
