This is what I'm feeling exactly.
I feel like the original had a bit more of things fleshed out, plot, characters, and overall exploration in different areas of Raccoon City. I like RE2:Remake alot but it feels like its smaller scale level wise somehow compared to what I played from the original and for that I am slightly disappointed. However I do think the gameplay is a step in the right direction compared to RE7. Although I feel like a more thorough stealth system for all enemies and Mr. X might've been a nice feature.
I would be greatly excited if they made an Outbreak game in this manner as I was feeling nostalgic for both RE2 and Outbreak while playing RE2:Remake.
I don't like the fact zombies are taking excess bullets to the head, most the time it's 8-12 shots to the head before they either fall to the ground and resurrect or die permanently. I think it's not *balanced* properly. Standard mode zombie's health is what I'd expect from hardcore mode (with a bit less chance of headshot/critical or more consistent zombie health instead of making bunch of zombies have many health points whereas minor group has less health than others - I don't know if I'm not the only one who's picking on this). Also the main big no no in my opinion is that when you're grabbed by a zombie and you don't have any defensive items, you're practically screwed and HAVE to get bitten, you can't wiggle/shake them off from you, now I haven't played the original but have watched the whole original gameplay. Assisted is very easy, Standard is tough-ish (still managed to get S+), Hardcore is anxiety rising mode that you need to prepare yourself to die a lot or continuously.
I didn't find Mr X hard to deal with at all, I just find him annoying as he tends to be in rooms where I need to go or he be in a room where I need to do for example a puzzle (take library for example). I actually liked Mr X, he made the game more tense with him around, stomping around to see where I am. He kinda made me think of what Nemesis would be like.
*Goes into safe room* - *Mr X walks away* - RE2:R
*Goes into safe room* - *Nemesis is aiming at the door with his rocket launcher - yelling S.T.A.R.S* - RE3:R
I really loved the level designing and the graphics especially when you go outside in the rain. (Although I find TAA+FXAA to be hiding the clarity of the game).
