    Yeah I did but it was more luck than anything else, got to the last bit in the underpass and had to just rush and hope I didn't get killed. Finished with a sliver of life left.

    No chance I'm even attempting Tofu.

    Just completed Leon A with 7 hours and a B ranking. Although i was killing everything and getting everything. A lot felt very familiar there were quite a few changes I did notice. Bens deaths was far cooler in the original.

    Haha, true. Felt the same for everything really. Even though what they did with Kendo was interesting, I loved the original and as a result felt let down. Same for chief irons, hate what they did with him.

    Would have been so cool if back in the day they did a remake of this like the original remake. Pretty sure I would have enejoyed that a lot more and it would have ended up on the top of my list. But not complaining, still happy with this remake overall.

    Yeah I hear you, it's got little nods to the original but quite a drastic difference in most respects. I'd love them to do a fixed camera remake with the original story etc but sadly in todays gaming world it's probably not going to net them much cash.

    Really?

    Kendo has like, 4 lines of dialogue in the original game and then gets eaten, he was hardly an interesting character

    Kendo: Freeze! Who are you, what are you doing here?

    Kendo: Oh sorry about that, I thought you were one of them.

    Kendo: Hold on.

    Kendo: I don’t know what’s going on. By the time I noticed something was
    wrong, the entire city was infested with Zombies.

    I liked his convo with Claire the best:

    "Sorry about that babe" :p

    Smooth.

    Sourcenext did a version of RE2 for modern Pc's, although it was low screen res. Worth checking out for some of you guys though. Translation patch is easy to get.

    I have the Gamecube version which I played before this and with a RGB cable was more than playable. Although from checking the Gamecube version is more expensive than the Remake :o.

    Just play GameCube version on an emulator and you can make graphics better there by running it at much higher resolutions. That’s what I do.

    Shame they just don’t do a but of work and release it on steam. Would buy it even for £20 as long as they did a good job just to have it in my steam library.

    But I don't want to run a pirate copy of it ideally, it would be good to be able to stream it.

    I see. You could always buy a GameCube version of the game if it makes you feel better? I used to have all the Resident Evil games when I had a Nintendo Wii as could also play GameCube games on it. It was around then I got these on the pc emulator. In the end when I sold my Nintendo Wii I sold the games too but still have them on pc.

    Does not bother me, way I see it is, even if I purchased a physical copy of the the game, the money would not go to capcom anyway. If they were selling it on the PC then I would get what you mean, but they don’t so they don’t lose money. I would be more than happy to buy it on steam if they did.

    I wish they released Resident Evil original trilogy plus Code Veronica in one package on steam. Would even pay £50 for that. They just may soon though. They recently did onimusha and are releasing old games like that. Oh and Dino Crysis too. Enjoyed those a lot also.

    It’s fine for me. Running on higher resolution in game engine makes it better too.
