Nor some really rubbish driving section with terrible control.

Imagine if Resi had those, eh?

Possibly the worst game level I have played in about ten years.

Imagine if it also had a shit flying section where an on screen prompt tells you to press the left and right buttons, when what it actually wants is for you to press the up button. And then compounds this by telling you to "pull the throttle", when what it actually means is to pull back on the yoke.

Sounds more like something out a bad Michael Bay film, and certainly not something out of a Resident EVil Survival Horror game.

This is so good I’ve turned it off cause I’m a bit tired and want to give it 100% attention. And man, it’s a looker.

And that bit at the beginning with the chairs stacked up in the corridor gave me Aliens vibes. Then it made me want this game in the style of Aliens. Man, I’m tired.

This game is so good (and you all know what a grumpy fucker I am).

Last night, I saw my first Licker at the end of a long corridor. I was only packing my pistol so, as a veteran Resi player, I thought sod that I’ll wait till I get my shotgun. Sure enough, a short while later I was back opening the door to the same corridor with my pump action shotgun in hand.

I slowly edged down the corridor ready to blow his fucking wig off. To the right was a smashed window; heavy wind blowing a watery mist through the smashed panels into the narrow corridor and leaving glistening rain water on the floor. There’s this new mechanic where zombies will respawn through open windows so you can now find wooden boards and prevent it happening. I didn’t fancy more Lickers showing up after I’ve eliminated this evasive sod somewhere in front of me, so I turn the camera slightly to face the broken window so I can whip up a makeshift barrier. As I turn the camera, a large exposed brain slowly descending the wall behind me appears into view straight out of a fucking Aliens movie. It scared me shitless.

Fortunately the Lickers are blind and if you move slowly you can almost silently move around without fear of being decapitated and it hadn’t noticed me so I popped a load of buckshot into his gruesome vagina face. And then some more. A final explosion of lead to the brain sent him to the black land.

This is without a shadow of a doubt the best remake I’ve ever played. Familiar in a way that makes me remember how good the original was but refreshingly new that it feels like the first time playing it again.

-1 point off the final score for not saying “Ressssident eviiiiillll tooooooooo” on the start screen though.

I tried sneaking past one and I think I got too close or maybe just moved a bit too fast and made some noise, either way it suddenly went for me and I damn near soiled myself.

I always killed them after that, sneaking past them was too stressful.

In our run the Yes, Chefs! deployed an advanced anti-Licker tactic called "brick it and run like hell." I think that back corridor had three of them in at one point.

I’m annoyed the PS4 version of the GameCube remake of the PS original didn’t say RERERESIDENT EVIL

One of those bastard Lickers wouldn’t let me out yesterday. I was stuck inside the locker room and this guy was patrolling directly outside the only exit. It ended up quite comical as I’d open the door slightly to see if he was about and each time he’d go “RAWWWRARARRAWWWSSSSHHH”. I wouldn’t mind but I only had a handgun bullets left and hadn’t saved in about 10 minutes but I just about managed to Benny Hill out of there with this bastard slashing at my neck like he was wanted to turn me into a human Pez dispenser.

This game is The Tits.

Is it as good as the Chris Redfield campaign on Resi 6 though?

I’m sure it says “Resident Evil 2”, just not “Resident Evil Too”.

Which is a shame

I had that sodding Tyrant chasing me yesterday. I escaped into the main room to save the game and sighed a breath of relief...

... then I saw him staring at me from the balcony and making his way toward me. Fucking terrifying.

Later I was fighting a load of zombies in the prison. Tons of the sods and only 4 shotgun rounds. Of course I’d have to stun groups of zombies with each precise shot of lead. Didn’t work of course and I was in a critical state after a couple of bites but I managed to get to the other side of the corridor. I probably missed some goodies in the cells too, annoyingly.

... then he turns around the corner blocking the exit. Shit. My. Pants.

Then I’m in the sewers with two rounds of buckshot. Literally the only ammo I’ve got. I’ve also got one health pack, an anti-poison thang, and two grenades. I’ve got one place left to visit for some chess pieces. A large area covered in slim and waist high sewage. I’m up to my eyeballs in goo and then I’m up to my arsehole in eyeball monster. I have to let him grab me so I can grenade him (twice). Then two blasts of hot lead to the eyeball, one health down and I’m free. With literally nothing in my possession I make a break for it. Then another eyeball freak pops up. Mutha. Fucker.

+1/2 a point to the overall score for letting you skip the splash screens when you turn it on.

Leon A - done did it. 7 hrs 20 minutes.

If that was the end of the game I’d have been more than happy (notwithstanding the price). The RE Engine is marvellous, cause this game is a reet looker and the atmospherics are great too with some fantastic sound effects, mood music, and ambient noises.

It’s just... Resi 2 BUT FOR 2019.

Onto Clare’s route.

What’s the deal with the A & B routes though - anyone know if they’re wildly different from each other or not?

Pretty different, and worth doing. The "special" ending was nice.

This second run is scary as shit.

No health, moments where I’ve got no ammo whatsoever, hunted by Mr X from the moment I set foot on the premises and Lickers fucking EVERYWHERE. Jesus Christ. This game is great.

Strange, it seemed dead straightforward. I just muddled through it without any bother.

Is there another bit or is this really the section Hearty was moaning about?

No, this sounds like the Ada section. The bit where you start with a gun...

Yes you get a crap pistol and hardly any bullets and you have to wave a remote control at fans to make them stop working. I got through that bit OK and the underground area where you have to get up the lift, my last save was at the gauntlet bit with Mr X which I believe is very near the end of the whole Ada section but I was cross by then so I stopped playing it for a couple of days, intending to pick it back up again imminently, and that was over a month ago.....

I'll probably resume it at some point, as I was very much enjoying it until it took my character off me and made me play a game of 'break the fans with a remote control whilst wearing high heels'.

Yes I know I'm getting more bothered by it than I should be, but I was irritated by it.

Honestly that whole section takes mere minutes to get through. Mr X chases you an extremely short distance, you open a single door, break a fan and it’s done. I bet I could do that section in a 90 seconds tops.

Yes I know I'm being completely irrational about it and am not even attempting to pretend otherwise.

There was just something about the way it took my character off me, who I'd built up really well and hoarded stuff for really carefully, and been super-neurotic with saving and loading to get every little section damn near close to perfection (honestly, the amount of goodies in my stash was quite a sight to behold), only to have the game say 'A HA! ALL YOUR WORK IS FOR NOTHING AND WE'VE TAKEN EVERYTHING OFF YOU!'

I realise I get my stuff back, and I realise it's only a short section and then you return to your main character, and I realise I'm being daft about it, but there we are. And yes I know I could have probably finished the section in the time it took me to write this post explaining why I don't want to complete the section.

HUMANS BE WHACK SOMETIMES BRO INNIT.

Here's some bullshit.

The above IS in the game BUT only in the Deluxe Edition. I mean, come on... It's an option for the original music and sound effects too. Penny pinching muthafuckers.
