Neither. It's just a good game worth playing.

Trash game. Repetitive, too action focused, almost never scary, uninspired.

>> No.6047732

A great game but the previous games are still better for these reasons I will list.

1. Biggest reason? You only get to play as Jill, one scenario.
2. The city isn't as memorable as it should have been. Basically I mostly mean level design to me is inferior to the previous games.
3. Even more action packed than the previous games. This game was perhaps the biggest warning sign of where RE as a series was headed.
4. Nemesis kind of gets predictable the more you play and really wasn't ever too hard to deal with.

Still a solid and great game though with plenty of positives that definitely outweigh the bad.

The most technically refined of the psx trilogy, but Raccoon again kind of sucked. It offered a nice conclusion to the arc though with the city gone, the ALPHA ogs survived and the stage set for taking the fight to Umbrella. I wish things didn't go anime with CV and Wesker coming back with Matrix powers. I also wish this was Jill's last escape and they retired the character with decency.

I disagree. That would be the movies and Code: Veronica. Even though way less people played it, it's what brought about the idiotic Wesker story arc when they never should have brought him back. The fact that they made Wesker have vampire powers in RE5 instead of being a shady bio-weapons dealer in the background pissed me off.

Mr. X is a much better design. The only issue is that he was only good for jump scares & didn't actually pose much of a threat in the original.

That's good design though. It's a survival horror game, why get punished with a game over because its time for an overpowered boss enemy to appear that you had no time to prepare for and had no clue was coming. It would quickly become frustrating without an easy way to fend him off.

It's right in the middle, the funniest for me will be 1. RE3 is a game that I love to replay and sometimes to stream it. It's a fun action game, there's almost no horror element in the game, it's mostly survival action game. And still you get a lot of ammunition to combat, plus the quick actions to evade make the player feel a lot more secure when fighting, it's fun. Another game that was release around the same time that pushes the action element even further is Dino Crisis 2. I see RE3 and Dino 2 as very similar games.
RE2 is the best of the Original games.

>> No.6049703

I enjoyed the RNG. It enhanced the replayability greatly. More RE games should implement randomness in enemy and item placement. I was dissapointed RE2make didnt do this out of the box.

>> No.6049709

RE1 is the best. It's a pure survival horror game while 2 and 3 lean way too much in the direction of being action games with fixed camera angles.
I'll give 3 being a bit more open than 2 with the two gems and tram items you need to get and having actual puzzles. Things like the 180 turn and movement in general were also good steps up from 2.

>> No.6049738

>This game was perhaps the biggest warning sign of where RE as a series was headed.
That was 2. 2 was already a massive shift towards action compared to 1. The levels were linear compared to the mansion and gave quite a bit of resources.

>> No.6049790

Did RE3 have an RNG handle certain item placements? I could have sworn that the differences were primarily based in which choices you picked during the branching options.

Your choices did affect minor item placements (gemstones, etc) but the game still had a separate rng that was not affected by paths (magnum vs grenade, ammo placements, etc).

The autists on here think anything OTS = action game. I used to think like this and have been shitting on RE4 since 2007. I argued like an autist about how REmake 2 should have had fixed angles, but after playing it on PC with mkb, I have seen the light. It is an incredible game, and ironically has more survival (bullet counting) than the original.

I still love 3 though, it had the best weapons, the ammunition crafting system was nice, it gave us mercenaries mode, turned jill into a badass and the threat of the nemesis randomly finding you added a fresh element that was tough to deal with (early on especially).

The focus on action rather than atmosphere really did signal where the series was headed and was the games' downfall, however.

RE2 had more replayability with the extra characters but RE3 was larger in scope and had more interesting environments.

>almost never scary
Resi is never scary.

Ah, Dino Crisis the series that never was.

>The autists on here think anything OTS = action game.
Right, just because it's an over the shoulder shooter doesn't mean it has to have a large amount of combat in the game, however it does mean that there WILL be at least some (and that it will focus on ranged combat).

You see by making the mouse/right stick control an aiming point and the left stick/WASD keys control movement around that focal point you're designing a game that has fast paced ranged combat, obviously. Now if you're going to go to all the trouble of doing that and for some reason not have any combat or have very little ... well that seems odd no? RE2 Remake is an action orientated game. The over the shoulder shooting is a part of that.

RE1 was just as linear as RE2. RE3 feels less linear but it's about the same overall.

The remake of RE2 reduced its difficulty dramatically from the original I feel, and fuck whose idea it was for all the extra content to be time tails. Give me some item RNG or a super hard mode or something.

RE:CVX was my favourite of the tank controlling RE games.

>> No.6059046

I loved the first RE game the most, until 2 came out. After RE2 there was no way Capcom was going to top it so they put out a below average RE game with a monster harassing you throughout to make it "new". I did like how he would say "Staaaaaaars" upon finding you.

>> No.6059154

>The remake of RE2 reduced its difficulty dramatically from the original I feel
Really? I've always thought og RE2 was the easiest game in the series. to the point that I was even able to finish it as a young kid on my brother's PS1 whereas RE1 felt brutal. The remake was the first time since the Outbreak games that I actually found RE challenging.

>Resi is never scary.
The original is very scary on your first playthrough. Exploring the mansion not knowing what's going to happen is very suspenseful, the sense of threat is absolutely tangible, and after you're desensitized to that suddenly the hunters invade. The game is tense as hell. When you go down into the laboratories, if you know there are only a few zombies there, sure, you're not spooked anymore, but on your first playthrough you shit yourself on every corner.
You just speedrun it one too many times and forgot what it's like. It's not really possible to re-experience RE1, but I vividly remember playing and beating it and it was TENSE AS FUCK. No other RE was ever like that. RE2 was Kamiya's proto action game and RE3 was neither here nor there (although still a very nice game).

He does have the staples still, just not all the way down his head. There looks like there might be a scar on the right side (our left) that goes down a ways to sort of make up for the removal of the former. Anyways, I like his look. His previous iteration only ever looked scary to me in the original Re3 cutscenes, but every other interpretation of him with updated graphics emphasized the cartoonishness of his design too much and just made him look like a comic book monster instead of a reanimated corpse/nightamre fuel creature. They would make him too angry and make his brow extremely large to show it, they'd make his head big and round to make it look more grotesque but instead take away from the fact that his neck is obscenely wide and too big due to his being a hulking mountain of death. I hate his ORC look, for what I'm trying to get across. Meanwhile this new look has a blank, dead gaze, his skull just tapering out as it hits his neck and shoulders with what's left of his skin tightly pulled over bulging musculature, the oversized teeth to make him look like a mutation from a T-103 as opposed to just one that got hit by a bus. And lastly, the nose imo, I like that it's there to make him more realistic,(again because just keeping it faithful but in HD looks goofy) but making it crooked the way it is, in proper lighting it's not noticable and he sorta goes back to looking like his old self. But up close and in the light he doesn't look like a Doom enemy like pic related.

>> No.6060534

You make a fair point. I agree that he could easily pass for a comic book type of monster as well. Back then with low detail polygons though such a look was fine to make him better stand out. He always had that coolness factor to him like how the Silent Hill franchise eventually kept using Pyramid Head in their media because he to also became too cool.

It was too hard for them both to resist the urge to make these monsters cool and iconic representatives of their respective franchises. It kind of makes sense with Nemesis but not so much PH because SH was never supposed to be that type of gaming franchise.
