When this was announced I was very happy. I love the Resident Evil series a lot but sadly me and tank controls did not mix well as a kid. I still struggle with them. 😡 I pretty much sat down and played this all in one day/sitting. Naturally I played Claire first….who doesn’t? I enjoyed the recreation of the RPD and the lab a lot. The sewer was a nice touch and liked it better then the Marshaling Yard in OG RE2.  Mr X. was frustrating at first but once you’ve played the game and know what to do and how his AI is its not so bad. I like how Sherry was treated in this remake with the exception of the secret ending. Ada and Annette, Kendo, etc. were also well done. My only complaints were how bullet spongy the zombies were and the 2nd scenarios. I know 2nd scenarios dont = B scenarios but its kinda hard to make sense of the plot Claire/Leon wise. The beginning was altered slightly and puzzle scenarios  were changed but thats about it. Those are really my only grumbles about it though.
