    it's got modern graphics and kino atmosphere, mixed with old school style level design.
    compared to re8, which has themepark linear level design. re2 is a far more fun experience that requires you to think about where you're going, and what route is the best to take.

        Problem is it didn't commit fully to the action tone like RE4 did. It kept trying to balance action and survival-horror, which basically never works. Either go hard for one or the other. RE4 got away with having so much weapon variety because it was an action game first and horror second. That's why RE8 needed to do imo. RE7 was the hardcore horror game. Let RE8 be the hardcore action-horror game.

                i like the fight at the end, feels like a proper battle, the area looks nice too but there's nothing really to do besides walk on the platforms between buildings and timing the runs between attacks
                if there was more variety to how the area played it would be MUCH better
                lthe attack cycle for moreau is exactly the same
                the small cave area with the lycans and the few shacks and walkways is the only part that isn't a snooze mechanically and even that part can be bypassed by grabbing the item and just leaving as the lycans won't follow you beyond the ladders from what i recall

    If by modern RE you mean RE Engine, then probably because it's the closest to the classic gameplay of combat/puzzles/prep. If by modern you mean any of the HD titles, then it isn't. All the new RE Engine titles starting with 7 lack replayability.

      I don't see how RE7, RE8 or RE2make have less replayability than most of the early games in the series.
      I feel like I live in an alternate reality where people keep pretending that classic RE were these huge, expansive, ultra-deep and replayable experiences when in reality they're very linear, short and simple games.

    it's a lot of pure gameplay moving from room to room, i like 7 and 8 but those games have so many dam breaks from the gameplay to be fun to re-run over and over again
    re2 is a about 1 minute and 45 secodns on average to make it from the gas station to the police station and then you can just get into the groove of moving about
    7 and 8 just have so much build up which is fun for casual plays but 2 just stomps it out when i want to actually play a game
    ever 3remake which is not that great when compared to 2remake is a better game to just re-run in an afternoon due to how it plays

      Basically a result of modern games trying to be too cinematic and story-focused. Even though elements of that did infect RE2make, it was still at its core a 90s game where story wasn't important, and that translated to the remake (in a good way).

    It has that old school survival horror risk/reward gameplay.

    >Juke the zombie and risk health loss or shoot it and waste ammo
    >There is strategy to the game. Clearing out certain hallways and blocking up certain windows has benefits when backtracking
    >Lickers are easily avoided with walking but Mr. X is on your ass so walking isn't an option.
    >Should I take the long route and risk more Mr. X or the short route and risk a licker encounter
    etc
    etc

    The other modern RE games are basically rollercoaster rides. There is little strategy beyond unloading into everything you see and you have more ammo than you need.

    Unfortunately this is really only the police station. The game basically becomes linear and not that unlike RE3 Remake once you reach the sewers.

    Fun enough game to play. Too bad it and 3 are terrible remakes, which irrevocably ruins them for me, and I don’t see 4 being better at all. Honestly, I’m just curious to see if any Code Veronica references will be in the game, or even Operation Javier (Krauser’s mission with Leon, which shows what Wesker did with the T-Veronica Virus). If not, there’s a good chance I’m just gonna drop this franchise, as none of the games released in the past half decade have made me happy.
