About RESIDENT EVIL 2 / BIOHAZARD RE:2

About this game

Developed and published by CAPCOM.

Watch the beginning of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield's story in Resident Evil 2 

Re-experience or discover a classic!

Whether you played it during its first release back in 1998 or you're just finding it now, this is a fantastic way to get back (or in!) to Resident Evil 2! 

Two sides of a coin

Play the campaign from both perspectives — Leon's and Claire's. This creative narration will suck you into the story!

Prevail through all obstacles

Fight and win against terrifying enemies, explore dark and creepy corridors, solve puzzles to progress, and use all the items at your disposal to survive. You'll really need all you can give to weather this storm!

Modernized

Classics are fantastic and timeless, but they're still old! To fix that, the game was modernized through the new over-the-shoulder camera mode! But don't worry, the old way is still available.

Upgraded visuals

Built from the ground up on CAPCOM'S RE Engine, the visuals are now photorealistic, meaning that whether you're fighting zombies or roaming corridors, you'll be up close and personal!

Steam Deck

And finally, if you feel like taking your zombie-killing elsewhere, you'll be able to because the game is verified on the Steam Deck!

Among the best remake of old games

Fanatical User
Verified purchase
If you played the original game on Playstation; this game will be a trip to nostalgia lane, but with a lot of changes in the overall game story. It is not radically different but some things have been changed; plus you have a timer mechanic that force you to be on the edge of your chair all the time (a guy that you can't kill that constantly stalk you around the different areas, kinda like nemesis in RE3). Some may like it some may not. Graphics are amazing and there is a lot of gore. The controls are nice and responsive, and the sound is even more creepy than expected. The bump in graphics and gameplay make this game much more scary, even if you played the original one. The negatives are the fact that the game mechanics are exactly the same as the old version: you have a limited set of bullets and inventory space, and you save only at specific save points. You can make the game easier by lowering the difficulty, but you will end up with a shortage of bullets and inventory space constantly. I wish they would fix that ancient design choice from the old game, but the main point of the old resident evil games was to make you uncomfortable so it plays well in the overall spirit of the game.

RESIDENT EVIL 2 / BIOHAZARD RE:2 Review

Staff Review
Leon and Claire's fight is not over yet as the duo return in what is a huge upgraded version of the 1998 sequel. RE2 now features the immersive third-person, over-the-shoulder camera, enhanced graphics and detail, and hours of spine-chilling survival horror gameplay. If you played the original, it's well worth diving in again to experience it from a whole new perspective. Don't worry, Leon still has his classic parted floppy hairstyle!

10/10 mustplay

One of the best decisions in the last year, resident evil 4 was for the longest time one of my favorite games of all time, and this game is pretty close to that, I finished this game 3 times already and can stop, this is a must-play for anyone who likes single-player experiences. The game may have a few flaws but I can see past all that, if anyone is reading this, don't wait any longer and play it.

Remaking an already great game is a difficult thing. Luckily, Capcom managed to absolutely nail their remake of the classic game Resident Evil 2. This remake features many modern upgrades across the board, one of my favorites being the level design of the police department. It loops around in a clever way and it really enhances certain game play elements. The game has a nice difficulty balance where game knowledge can make the game considerably easier. This gives the player a better sense of progression than just flooding the player with resources. In short, wonderful game with a good chunk of content. Definitely worth a proper playthrough!

Best remake out the recent ones, It's giving me a hard time with all the spooks I encounter but that doesn't stop me from playing it. 10/10 would recommend.
