I’ve felt Leon looks better closer to still and Claire in motion. Like most uncanny facial business it’s the way mouth and eye/brow areas don’t exactly come off like part of one synchronous being, but on the whole it looks amazing anyways.
Finished up 2nd side with Claire earlier, opposite from the original I enjoyed hers more this time. The story beats with her and Sherry are just different enough and presented with feeling that in rare occasion with all my fandom, I got pretty sentimental about them on screen. High fidelity has power and that’s the big win of Resident Evil 2 Now.
My disappointments have hovered around something similar to 7: less enemy variety, again. Crows aren’t missed like mentioned before but an extra type of Licker and…something else are.
Instead of doing beforehand I’m probably going to play og RE2 again soon, it’s not just cutting the camp down I believe they trimmed some fat and lost flavor, it’d probably sound negligible written out. It’s a great remake with the passage of time; it’s not as much a masterpiece of design as 2002’s. Excellent work from the team I personally would’ve liked less modern compromise because it doesn’t have a concrete foothold on tension aside from Mr. X and he’s easily manipulated. edit: lack of more bgm with heavy mood like the original’s, is a big subtraction - though what tracks come along are solid
