RE2 (the original) is my favorite game of all time. I really enjoyed RE3 as well, but RE2 always stuck out for me.
With that being said, I was ecstatic when they announced the REmake of RE2. I preordered that Collector's Edition and was very pleased with the collectibles and especially the game.
I feel like the bar was set high for RE3 REmake, and popped it into my Xbox with pretty high expectations, and a little bit of hesitation that it wouldn't hold a candle to RE2 REmake. However, I was totally blown away by the RE3 REmake experience!
From the opening of the game setting up the atmosphere of Raccoon City at the peak of the T-Virus outbreak, the game doesn't quit pacing you through the story. There is very seldom a lull in this action based sequel to the 2019 REmake.
As may people have pointed out, the game is shorter than the last few RE games. I'd say that's true as there aren't two campaigns (i.e. Claire and Leon or Jill and Chris in other games), nor are there "A" and "B" scenarios. However, what this game lacks in quantity, it more than makes up for in quality. It's hard for me to admit, but I really think at times I enjoyed RE3 REmake more than RE2 REmake... The game is the perfect balance of horror, suspense, action, and a great story. There are also several instances where this game ties into RE2 in ways that are really cool, if you played RE2 REmake.
Overall, if you're a fan of the games, I'd say it's worth the buy. My expectations were surpassed buying this game in full, and I'm sure if you're a huge fan of the series, yours will be too. Especially if you've played RE2 REmake.
