  • Woah, dude! It's like day and night!
  • Let it die Capcom.
  • You can tell the framerate is better, but its seems like the colors are better on the SD one, but they may just be darker.
  • For a struggling company, this is a waste of funds.
  • One of the more unremarkable HD upgrades I've ever seen.
  • Looks almost identical to me. I guess for the few people who have never played it, it would be a viable purchase.
  • I'd say the brick fireplace looks better in the SD version. A waste of time and money that could've been spent remaking Resident Evil 2. SORT IT OUT CRAPCOM.
  • They really have to keep proving this, don't they.

  • Personally, the thing that is most surprising to me, is that this game runs n everything except a toaster and the Vita.

  • just reboot the freakin franchise already!
  • Lets see. This started as a gamecube game. It was then ported to the ps2 with more features. Then it was ported to the wii with motion controls. Later it got a hd remake for the ps3 and 360. Now its getting another hd remake with higher fps for the pc.
  • please port it to the XB1!

  • waste
  • Here is what I do not understand, why does Capcom not make another RE game in the spirit of RE4 (not a shorter carbon-copy like RE5, more along the lines RE:Revelations)? I mean, they would not keep re-releasing it unless they are still selling which means there is still demand for such a game.
  • It looks the same to me. I think capcom should do what Microsoft did with Halo Anniversary. I would buy that in a heartbeat. As of now I'm not touching this version, Capcom has already suckered me into buying this game way to many times and everytime I replay it I like it less and less. The controls are just horrible and I can't go back to them when there are games like Dead Space now with superior controls.

  • The 60 fps is really the only big difference. I feel I need them playing side by side to see the major differences in texture quality... which means there isn't much at first glance.

    I do sort of like the idea of some kind of perfect edition of classic games, but the amount of times this game has been re-released already is silly.

    They should have done a complete graphical overhaul similar to Halo Anniversary for this.

  • But frame rate doesn't matter right guys? Right?

  • I may give this one a go. I know there was a PC version made before, but I heard it was utter crap (mostly control issues) and...well, I've realized that most of Capcom's games play exceptionally well on PC these days.

  • I like that they're revisiting the, in my opinion, best Resident Evil game but I wish they completely redid it from the ground up. Now THAT would be something to brag about.
