Resident Evil 2-Gameplay

Resident Evil 2-Review

Resident Evil 2 is one of the better horror games out there in the market. This game is the complete remake of the original Resident Evil 2 released in 1998. This remake lives up to its expectation and delivered a classic survival horror game while keeping the theme of the original game intact. This remake will be enjoyed by both new players and the players who played the original one.

Game Type
Survival Horror (with gun play)

Gameplay/View
Third Person View. You either play as Leon or Claire, the two protagonists in the game. You have to survive from enemies and complete puzzles to proceed towards the objective.

Difficulty
Have three difficulty settings suitable for both beginner and hardcore players.

Game Length
Between 12 to 15 hrs for one campaign playthrough.

Weapon Types
Pistol (4-5 variety of pistols), SMG, Shotgun, Grenade Launcher. There are some exclusive weapons like rocket launcher, Machine gun etc. only available in certain boss fights.

Items/ Equipment
There are many items or equipment which the player can gather in their walkthrough. Items ranges from Knife, Grenade, flashbang, herbs (for healing and curing any status like poison) and some other.

Crafting and Inventory
Players can combine two items to create a new item that ranges from ammo, healing herbs.

Exploration
The game encourages the players to explore the areas. A lot of mission items and special items/ equipment are scattered throughout the area and it is essential to explore the areas.

Enemy Types/AI/Boss
Enemy AI is great. Loud noises from running, gunfire can attract enemies from a distance. There are quite a few enemy types/varieties ranging from zombies, dogs, lickers, swamp monsters and some others. In addition to normal enemies and zombies, the player is chased by special enemies in certain areas. In the early part of the game the infamous Tyrant (Mr X) will be stalking the player throughout the level in the early part. While some players may get frustrated, this chase/stalking of Mr X is a critical/ fundamental part of this game and the players will feel a sense of accomplishment once they manage to overcome this part. Boss fights are decent although there could have been some improvement.

Sound, Graphics and Atmosphere
All of them are excellent which when combined together recreate a true horror feeling among the players.

Replay Value
Good replay ability value. The player had to complete the game twice to get the true ending. This has to be done with the two characters Leon and Claire. Note that the player had to do the second playthrough (entitled second run). There are certain modes like Survival modes, NPC scenarios which unlocks once a player completes a playthrough.

Some advice and tips
Killing an enemy is not recommended unless absolutely necessary since ammo is scarce. (it takes a huge number of bullets to kill an enemy Crippling an enemy (shooting in the leg) is an effective way to conserve ammo and complete objectives faster.
All the items/mission items should be checked and inspected since it can reveal new features which otherwise can be over looked. For example, a badge (used for unlocking locker) on proper inspection can change into a USB dongle that can be used to access a computer.

Inventory management is important since the number of inventory slots are limited and some items can occupy 2 slots. It is essential to keep at least 2-3 slots free before the player decides to investigate a particular area. It may happen that the player run out of inventory slots while coming in front of a mission item. The player can drop items/ammo to make space but those ammos and items are quite hard to come by.

The player had to backtrack a lot in this game so it is essential that the player gets accustomed with the map/area.
A player can check on dead bodies/zombies using their knife (and not waste bullet) to check if they are actually dead or not. Otherwise the bodies can suddenly reanimate and can catch the player off guard.

There is no dodging in the game. The player must make each step with caution. Always keep a knife or two equipped so that if an enemy catches a player off guard, the player can snap out of the enemy grab/bite with their trusty knife.

Final Verdict
9/10. Definitely recommended. Capcom have really showed us as how remakes are actually made!
