Thoughts on Resident Evil 2’s “1-shot” demo

Resident Evil 2

Today I pre-ordered Resident Evil 2 on Steam and got around to playing (and completing) the 1-shot demo of the game. I didn’t think I could get more excited for this game, since the original RE2 on PlayStation was — and still is — one of my all-time favourites, but apparently I was wrong.

The demo was great. So dark and genuinely scary with flashes of the weird terrifying twists that made the original game so damn good. Visually, the new RE2 looks very impressive — particularly with the environments and lighting effects — and I’m interested to see how Capcom has chosen to update the enemies and other characters from the original game.

I wish I could jump into the full release now. The 25th seems so far away.
