    It does, looks decent but it's a dark game so mainly makes the light sources in the darkness stand out a bit more

    I completed it in less than 20 minutes with no deaths and no guide, though I did recently replay RE2 Sourcenext REbirth so the layout was familiar.

    Sounds good. Gonna hold off playing this I think as it’s a definite day1 game for me. Never played Resident Evil before though besides breiefly here and there.

    Not good with scary games. Uninstalled after 5 minutes

    Looked great. Can't believe 13 year old me is braver than adult me

    Same. I was also that age when my dad bought me resident evil 2 for my birthday. Completed everything fully no problem.

    I think the graphics now are almost photorealistic. Which is the big difference from back in ‘98

    I did not find it scary much. I think games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent are a hell of a lot scarier. But I just always say, it is a game and get on with it. It works for me :D

    I don’t think it’s so much that it’s scary for me, I think it’s more that it’s too gory :p or maybe it’s both. I noped out of the PT and resi 7 demos lol.

    Started playing RE HD to get me in the mood. Man it's a pretty nice remaster.

    You 'completed' it? What was the end goal and result?

    Anyway, great demo and it's a little bit dark and scary!!! Leon gets out his flashlight and suddenly you hear a zombie groan - poop pants!!

    I found 1 x medallion, shotty and ammo.

    30 mins went way to fast though.

    ETA - ah ok, speed run, completed in less than 3 mins!!

    I don't find resi 2 scary at all and I'm a huge wimp with these things.

    Got a few scary vr ones installed that I'm too much of a wimp to even play.

    Yeh playing it to. Got up to mansion 2 but man two things I hate are the camera and some of the ridiculous backtracking mostly caused by lack of inventory space.

    I know they fixed the camera in re2 remake which is good but if the puzzle element is the same I really don't think I can be bothered.

    Also the bit with the dogs and the whistle and the collar is so ******* obscure I had to find the answer in a guide.

    Remakes cant fix gameplay elements that have simply moved on since they were first released.

    Yeah. It is obviously not his type of game. All the things he is complaining about make the game what it is. If it did not have limited inventory then it would make the game worse, not better for example!

    I played and completed 1, 2 , 3, 4 and 5 on release. So I like them but going back to the old style of play is just not right for 2019. Games have advanced so much and got rid of those clunky mechanics for a reason.
