Reviews are really great for this. 91 right now on Metacritic.

https://www.metacritic.com/game/play...esident-evil-2

I'm tempted to get this even though i'm not a big RE fan, only playing a few of them sporadically over the years.

I imagine this will be $15 to $20 during Black Friday, I'll pick it up then. That should give me enough time to play through the first one. I'm glad to see all the positive reviews though since I haven't played it since PS1.

I might pick this up when it's on sale. I have the Nintendo 64 version and I hated it. The controls were terrible. I made it about five minutes in before giving up due to not being able to control the character.

A bit late, but I pre-ordered it today at Best Buy.

My CE already shipped. I'm looking forward to this. I was 17 when I first played RE2.

Picked up my pre-ordered copy from BestBuy today for PS4. It said I was suppose to get two exclusive weapons for preordering from Bestbuy but I apparently didn't. Don't see any mention of them anywhere.
I didn't bother with spending $10 more for the Deluxe. I don't care about alternate costumes... so the only thing that interested me was possibly replaying later with the "classic soundtrack".

Looks amazing, feels much different than I expected. Only played a little today as Leon, and he just moves very slowly. Even when you make him run, he only moves slightly faster than what you'd expect him to be during walking. They definitely wanted to make it less actiony and slower paced.

Zombies don't seem to want to go down. I head shot the first zombie in the gas station 7 times and he was still moving. With one bullet left I had to just run past everything instead of trying to fight. So much more reminiscent of older RE where you had to be sparing with ammo and not just kill everything that moves.

There is no season pass. The deluxe edition just gives you costumes, a weapon, and a soundtrack swap.

OMG
Spoiler:
The mutant fight in the machinery basement was intense. I have to plug a lot of bullets on him when running away to make his eye on the the shoulder to pop out to shoot it out. He fell down the rail so don't know if he dead or not. Sure waste lot of bullets and shotgun shells

Put in two hours so far. Really having a blast. I noticed a few things moved around and or removed. Was a little bothered at first but now things are more of a surprise making moments more interesting .

I remember pretty much nothing in RE2 even though it was one of my favorites. I'm about 6 hours in and it feels all new to me.

If you picked up a Steelbook, consider yourself lucky. They're all over $30, mostly over $40 on eBay. Wish I'd ordered a second one.

So far, only played a but, but this game is fucking amazing and so much fun. I always liked horror survival. Even though RE4 more action, it’s one of my favs of all time. This is certainly different, very scarce ammo and really have to conserve and run away. Can’t just kill everything in site. At least not in beginning. Hopefully changes a little, but this probably stays true to horror survival roots. Very visceral game too...

I finished the entire game as Claire but to get the true ending you have to play through with both characters. My playthrough was 7 and a half hours.

Yeah, I don't think they could expand it out much longer. The original was like 5.5 hours.
