Ehh...
17 November 2009 | by chris0513See all my reviews

Not the RE2 remake I was hoping for, but I guess I'll have to deal with it. Although I'm glad it helps covers some areas that I've been wondering about since RE4: Primarily the gap of years between Code Veronica and RE4. I was really, really, really hoping they'd go all out and remake RE2 like they did for RE: Remake for these current gen systems, but who knows... I don't know how many times Capcom covered the Mansion incident, but I really hope Leon and Claire get some Next Gen treatment. Degeneration just didn't cut it for me.

Come on, Capcom!

Where's our RE2 Remake? You know, the highest-grossing RE title you EVER MADE????!
