Resident Evil 2 Remake is a game that all fans of the original release will enjoy, as it’s a polished and respectful remake, as noted by Nathan in his review.
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.
Resident Evil 2 Remake launches on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25th.
