I don't know, I really think of RE2 as something that marked a hit... RE1 was great but the way RE2 was implemented (with the 2 characters stories and alternative scenarios) was superb. Plus the feeling of survival like anything else I've seen on a game of that style, specially on the alternative scenarios when your characters are pursued by that Hunter creature...
Funny thing about this topic...
Recently we picked up the PS2 version of RE:Code Veronica, but we refused to play it till we caught up in the series (Guess we are weird that way). Prior to the purchase we had conquered the original and Directors Cut versions of RE on PS1. We noticed we had both RE2 and RE3 PS1 also in our collection, and so we just conquered RE2. We agree with Kaiser...It was good. The first scenarios had good storyline, and filled gaps from RE1. It was the second scenarios that impressed us. At first we just thought it was going to be like RE1's alternate mode where they just shuffle items, but it was much more. It not only filled in gaps in the first scenario's storyline, but also had your butt chased by a Tyrant strategically dropped into the house. What added even more to our enjoyment was the suprise "HAHA fooled you it is not quite the ending" ending. Then the bonus Hunk and Tofu scenarios, and from what we gather the Hunk scenario explains how Umbrella gets the G-Virus (and is apparently explained by Wesker in RE:CV). That was some good gaming from 2 PS1 disks (Although we haven't quite gotten thru Tofu's scenario..not sure if it is worth it..obviously a gag, and a hard one at that).
We are now clearing RE3, and so far we are in agreement to what has already been said. So far we are going through Racoon City PD, and it is a complete rehash the RE2 game using the same engine and graphics. Also old Nemesis doesn't quite seem to shock us since it also seems to be a thrown in idea that was already capitolized by the chasing Tyrant in RE2's scenario 2. We will go through it nonetheless just for story integrity. At least we understand how ole Brad Vickers got killed in RE2..Maybe ole Nemesis from RE3 was nice enough to shove that special key in his pocket
(RE fans that played both should get that one).
Once we clear RE3 we will go back to the RE1 GC remake (Wow..we played the first level...it is worthy), and then hit RE:CV..then maybe rent RE Zero, and then do RE4 :thumb:
