RE1 remake was a great remake for it's time. And very faithful to the original.

RE2remake is my favorite RE game of all time. So that's my favorite.

RE3remake is a pretty good expansion DLC for RE2remake lol.

RE1R shares my personal absolute 1st place with RE3

RE2R is great but the things they cut from RE2 prevent it from getting the 10/10

RE3R has nice graphics, faithful music and improves Tyrell and Nicholai, but is still several leagues below the previous remakes

On RE3 I agree. The new dialog and characterization of the supporting cast was great. Just wish there hadn't been so many ridiculous scenes of Jill getting bounced off brick walls and surviving explosions, it seriously killed my suspension of disbelief

1 Remake was more faithful. 2 remake was a game I liked more. 3 was fine but way too short.

I think RE1 Remake was a perfect remake. It didn't remove anything from the original, it only expanded upon it, which is how a remake should be handled.

RE2 Remake is really good but it does lack aspects of the original that made it more unique on each playthrough, like the zapping system, but for the most part it retained the vast majority of what was in the original and is just a good game in it's own right.

RE3 Remake for me is hard to give an unbiased opinion on because I loved the original a lot and the remake feels like if they were to make a film adaptation of that game. It feels like the cliff notes of RE3, if RE2 Remake had 10% cut from the original, then RE3 Remake cuts like half of the original and the stuff they replace it with is questionable. It's like we don't get the Clock Tower or the Park but we get more Sewer Levels which is infinitely less interesting and we already had plenty of it in RE2. I think as it's own game it's ok but it is quite short and not as impressive as RE2 or even RE1 Remake. As a remake however, it is extremely disappointing. We could have had a large Raccoon City to explore like in the original, not to mention it's the only mainline RE game that really let's you explore the city. Imagine seeing the full city with Remake's graphics, it would have been amazing. Not to mention while the original game was also short, it had way more environmental variety than the Remake which instead opted to just give us a severely truncated city, more sewers, more hospital (which is a fine location but I would have rather had more variety as apposed to a longer hospital section) and of course changing the factory to NEST 2.0 which looks mostly the same as the one from RE2. Again just a very disappointing remake for fans of the original, especially after seeing how good RE2 Remake was.

Best answer I've heard. Most people want to act like REmake2 is perfect.. but it also cut content.

I appreciate the honest review

ID: hq7icaj

People aren't being dishonest or "pretending" that the RE2 remake is perfect. They just have a different opinion than you.

Put way more time into RE2, modding it a bit (enemy variations mostly) and randomizer.

Can't really do that with RE3 because it's much more of a straight line, but that's not automatically a bad thing. I enjoyed RE3 very much once or twice, loved the characterizations. Missed the locations, but I think some put too much stock in that.

As for comparing with REmake, that's kind of a different beast that scratches different itches for me, so they're basically equal.

Remake is closer to the original Resident evil experience Remake2 is a great modern spin on RE. Re3remake is expensive dlc for Re2 remake definitely good and worth playing but it is over to soon. New Carlos is great he should get his own game

9 : Anonymous2021/12/27 21:20 ID: hq70fhq

I'm in a middle of the REmake so I don't have an opinion on it for now, the RE2make is by far my favorite Re game of all time, and the RE3make is fine on what it is but it's way too short and doesn't capture the magic of the original Re3.

They need to port or remaster classic 2 and 3

11 : Anonymous2021/12/27 17:37 ID: hq63qe1

I enjoyed both 2 and 3 remake tbh can't pick which one I like more as I honestly like them equally

12 : Anonymous2021/12/27 20:34 ID: hq6tr30

re2 is my favourite, re1 is the best, and we were ROBBED of RE3 being the best resident evil game ever

ID: hq6yk31

Had threemake been longer and a bit more fleshed out, I agree, best resident evil game ever. However had the RE2 remake had the same replayability with the two different scenarios as the original, fucking forget it. Best game of all time. I played the remake and just wanted to play the original afterwards.

ID: hq72168

RE2 Remake definitely did a lot right but I never really understood why they made minimal effort in regards to the zapping system of the original where both sides and both scenarios offered their own flavor of interwoven events and story.

ID: hq6ybek

They really did re3 dirty.

ID: hq78mca

How many times are they gonna do that? Operation Raccoon City, Apocalypse, Umbrella Chronicles, this HD demake...

In the end, Marvel vs Capcom has the best rendition of Nemesis since the original xD

13 : Anonymous2021/12/27 19:41 ID: hq6m35g

My personal ranking is 2,1,3 but if I have to look at them objectively i would say 1,2 at the top and 3 falls behind by a lot

I Love RE2r and RE3r, I still play them to this day but after recently playing Re1r, I kinda wished they went the same route with 2 and 3 but overall They’ve still Amazing

RE2, easily. Very respectful while doing a couple of things of its own. 4 ways to play it. Decent amount of content.

RE3 is the 2020 movie version of the plot of OG RE3; if you look at it that way, its a fucking masterpiece, but if you are someone like me that wanted an even better game than RE2 you will be REALLY FUCKING dissapointed.

RE1 is a fucking masterpiece, the blueprint for all REmakes to come. RE2 came VERY close to matching its sheer quality and love of the OG game, but I am really happy we have both, RE3, not so much.

RE2, easily. Very respectful while doing a couple of things of its own. 4 ways to play it. Decent amount of content.

So two identical playthroughs with identical cutscenes/plot that has 0 consistency... is 4 ways to play?

I guess REmake3 has 5 was to play with Easy/Normal/hardcore/nightmare/inferno

Re3r is garbage Re2r and re1r are masterpieces

17 : Anonymous2021/12/27 22:08 ID: hq77dpr

2 is a good Remake. Suffered a little from laziness for not having a proper zapping system, but it's overall a great game, so 9/10;

3 is painfully bad as a Remake. And even as a successor of 2make, it's also painfully bad... the only improvement is literally the dodge system, everything else is the same or just worse, and for that it's a 4/10;

1 is the best example of how to Remake a game. It's a 10/10 for me and my second favorite game (first is RE3 '99).

18 : Anonymous2021/12/27 22:47 ID: hq7cupd

REmake will always be the best RE. 4 is up there too.

19 : Anonymous2021/12/27 23:00 ID: hq7ete2

RE1R is perfect imo I dont really like tank controls and the fixed camera angles but they where surprisingly easy to get used to.

RE2R is really good too and probably my second favorite resident evil game right under RE4. I never played the original so I cant say how it compares.

RE3R was disappointing, I kinda hyped myself up by looking up walkthroughs and lore about RE3 in preparation for its release and was incredibly disappointed with the length of the game, the cut content, and I know this might be an unpopular opinion but I didn't like Nemesis in this game because he was pretty much only used in Scripted encounters. Felt like dlc tbh

ID: hq7gar1

Lol its not unpopular opinion - its almost a general consensus that Nemesis in remake was disappointing. Even the director of original RE3 didnt like Nemesis in remake because it was scripted and used mostly in cut-scenes

20 : Anonymous2021/12/27 23:40 ID: hq7k8t5

Gameplay wise I prefer the second, but I like all the little callbacks to it that we got in 3. Definitely like Jill best as well.

autocorrect almost just made me say breast... Technically correct

RE2 got the best remake.

22 : Anonymous2021/12/27 17:32 ID: hq632y8

The original remake is the best one, it took a classic game and escalated it so perfectly and changed just enough to put the people who played the originals on their toes.

These two remakes didn’t do that

ID: hq64f0y

I would at least say the RE2 remake did.

ID: hq6mqlx

Kind of? The re2 remake removed some enemy types and got lazy with the scenarios while removing certain dialogue scenes from Leon and Claire that helps build character development (Leon and Claire meet up more times in the OG than in the remake).

ID: hq6vvwk

uve cleary never played the original re2

23 : Anonymous2021/12/27 17:54 ID: hq66c1m

No one holds a candle to the REmake. From what I am told, that game had all of the original content and then some. It really was a remake in the sense that the same material was rehashed.

The remakes of 2 and 3 have been called “reimaginings” and that’s a more fitting term as certain events have totally changed or disappeared entirely. There was cut content. Period.

ID: hq6duq2

I recommend you play the original.

24 : Anonymous2021/12/27 18:00 ID: hq677vq

I enjoyed 2 more as it was more faithful of a remake than 3. But 3 is still a fantastic game, an absolute blast from start to finish.

That being said, neither really compare to RE1R. That game was an upgrade in all respects without sacrificing anything from the original game like RE2R and RE3R did. It’s the gold standard for video game remakes!

25 : Anonymous2021/12/27 18:05 ID: hq67wpi


RE1R & RE2R are both great. RE2R is my favourite RE overall. RE3R is just painfully mediocre.

26 : Anonymous2021/12/27 19:59 ID: hq6okzg

RE1 remake is best RE game ever.

And I enjoyed all three games. RE2 was better than RE3.

27 : Anonymous2021/12/27 18:34 ID: hq6c50h

RE2 Remake is damn near perfect. The RE3 Remake is good, but knowing how much was cut out of the original RE3 really detracts from giving it a better score. Perhaps Capcom should have delayed it a year to give it the branches and additional content.

28 : Anonymous2021/12/27 18:35 ID: hq6cb9z

The remake of the first game is the best for me. 2 remake is also very good. I really liked 3R too. In fact while I think 2 was a better remake than 3, I enjoy replaying 3 more. It’s the pacing. The game is always pushing you forward. 2R, while a better survival horror experience, felt like a bit of a chore to replay at times. The sewer section was incredibly tedious and I hate it on replays.

29 : Anonymous2021/12/27 19:03 ID: hq6gheh

I haven't played 1 or 3 remake but heavily loved Resident Evil 2 remake I played that game like 6 times in a row. So even if RE 3 is short I'm most likely going to love it as equally as RE 2. I've been planning on buying every RE game but I need to get the original one so I can start from the beginning.

30 : Anonymous2021/12/27 19:35 ID: hq6l6vt

Both cut out content. I was pretty disappointed in re2 remake since I had very high expectations and since the original is my favorite re game of all time but the remake is still a fun and immersive experience.

With re3 remake well.....let's just say I've only touched it twice since release. It's basically collecting dust at this point. That's how offended I am. Still a fun game on its own though. Not as good as re2 remake but enjoyable.

The originals are still the superior games imo and offer a lot more content and better writing with more dialogue. If you're a newer fan to the series you probably won't understand where I'm coming from.

Re1 remake is vastly superior to both if we're talking about remakes and being faithfull while adding more to the base game.

Overall good games on their own but as remakes they kind of failed (moreso re3 remake).

31 : Anonymous2021/12/27 17:37 ID: hq63pzz

RE1 remake RE2 remake RE3 remake.

Imo the gap between 1 and 2 is huge and 2-3 is just as huge

32 : Anonymous2021/12/27 17:48 ID: hq65c9v

RE 2 then 1 then 3

I still play RE2 from time to time.

I wouldn't object to playing RE1 again.

Probably won't play 3 any more.

33 : Anonymous2021/12/27 17:37 ID: hq63rcz

Both of them great remakes, however the third was too cut down from the original.

34 : Anonymous2021/12/27 19:05 ID: hq6gscr

The remake of the first one is the only one that's better than it's predecessor. 2 scrapped the A & B scenarios and the enemies were way too bullet spongy. 3 cut so much content that it's more of an abridged version than a remake.

35 : Anonymous2021/12/27 20:59 ID: hq6xfg1

What we got for 3 was a disappointment.

1 remake- 6/10

2 remake- 7/10

3 remake- 5.5

Don't agree with every change made but when it comes to remakes, 2 ultimately carried the best design philosophy. 3 was "let's hyperfocus on the very basic bullet point plot of 3" and 1 was "lol let's expand the weakest areas."

38 : Anonymous2021/12/27 18:58 ID: hq6fswk

I enjoyed RE1 remake the best and think it is the best resident evil. However, RE2 Remake is awesome. Second best remake in the series. RE3R is okay.
