I discovered there are more puzzles. The game is very shooter-ish, yet so far a lot like the original. At least as of chapter 4.
Respectfully, I can't agree with any of this. The game is wonderful and the best part is the original isn't going anywhere. There's nothing wrong with having options. Tasteful liberties are welcomed and the tonal change did more for the game than any remake prior. To look at all of the hard work that went into this project and allow an honest critique to be "the bell rang too early" is just unappreciative imo. Again, nobody is being forced to enjoy it or not, but watching a video online and nitpicking changes isn't the same as experiencing the game. Have some fun, play the game... or don't? It's a masterclass in remakes and expect a lot of people to be happy with it, myself included.So before the release of the game ı took notes judging from checking the leaks at the time. They arent fully complete and ı'll edit some of them here to fit here better:
" I already dont like the changes, like one of the cops somehow disappearing when originally both of them were captured at the same time with the car being pushed towards a river along with bridge being destroyed. "
" The bell rings way too early. "
" Leon falls from the tower, pfft... "
" This is a small detail but the boxes have yellow paint on them. I see that unnecessary. Even windows have yellow paint as showcasing them burstable through those. "
" Lmao ganados are as dumb as in og game if not more. One of them literally runs towards a bomb they planted, facepalm... "
" It looks like mendez injects leon with the syringe now rather than a ganado. The way it's executed looked boring, leon doesnt even try to kick him, mendez just picks him up and throws him down anyways. "
" Leon's jacket is taken and it doesnt show the ganado who took it yet. There's no qte though, that looked boring and the ganado who " frees " them gets killed through a more boring way rather than getting thrown up by leon kicking him, now his neck gets broken through chains. Leon's gear gets taken this time so that's an improvement however they still didnt disable his com. Leon getting captured is still dumb regardless. "
" Ganados are quite tough with the dynamites. They are as annoying as they were before, ı also dont understand the prompt, can they be picked up and thrown somewhere else? "
" I still think upgrading stats other than firearm is dumb. I dont like upgrading firing speed for the handguns, leon should have that ability by himself. In dead aim, you can fire handguns as fast as you can and that's also brought back for re6 where you can fire as fast as you can. The reload speed upgrades also look dumb to me, for shotgun and rifle, it simply makes you insert more bullets into weapon rather than putting them 1 by 1. It's quite silly. "
" I saw the new scene where ada saves leon from mendez. It's quite brief and ada is shown less compared to og game, it doesnt even show her hookshot. Mendez also doesnt jump from the window, compared to og game, it feels more boring and less dramatic. "
" Luis is an umbrella researcher now. I'm not sure what's the point of this. "
" It looks like you can save the dog, they just moved its position to somewhere else. "
" Colmillos appear earlier than og game, also the tower explodes for no real reason. Pointless changes so far. "
" The amount of bear traps in the game make me facepalm. Plus there are still planted explosives. Why are there so many of them compared to og game, it feels unnecessary. "
" Leon reaches to the church's gate and the exchanges between him and hunnigan are boring. She doesnt mock him for not being taught with locking skills in the academy like it happens in og game. Yawn... "
" Facepalm... They included shooting range from og game. I never liked that much. ( I still dont get it. Why did they include that? It's so pointless... ) "
" The laser looks quite terrible, ı cant even see it coming out other than a red dot. And for some reason it takes space in inventory, that's so stupid. "
" I just watched del lago boss fight. It's so terrible, what the hell? You cant even get knocked out from the boat, they just put an hp bar. Even in re6, you can get damaged during its vehicle sections more, what the hell even is this? It's so pissfully easy. "
" Also leon's leg doesnt get grabbed by a rope, why even remove that? It added tension to the game and he just falls unconscious on the boat rather than moving towards a house and falling inside there. Facepalm... "
" I checked the dream sequence and even that feels underwhelming. Now leon dreams saddler and ı cant even see the cursed blood going through his arms. The drama and emotions of leon compared to og game feels incredibly downplayed. Goddamn it, it's turning out to be very terrible right now. "
" The village looks way too dark now, it's impossible to see the environment and plaga mutations feel quite underwhelming, it doesnt look as satisfying of fighting them compared to og game. Even re5's plaga mutations looked and felt more satisfying to fight. "
" Now you obtain the church insignia by putting 2 skulls on 2 hands. And those skulls are obtained by solving puzzles, they dont look that hard, the solution seems to be displayed at environments but it feels like a tedious work to give such a drawn out method of obtaining key items. "
" The lake is way too big, from what ı've seen, ı've became way too sick judging from looking at all those unnecessary explorations. "
" I've seen some girls in the village but they dont look like villagers. They look like outsiders kidnapped from other places around the world. I dont understand why they are there. The game tries to trick the player thinking they are ashley even though it feels like a waste of time. "
" El gigante introduction is so boring. It doesnt even kill any nearby ganados and leon doesnt even try to backflip. It still allows to climb on top of it though. I think it's better than del lago. Dog also appears. "
" Saddler doesnt appear in the church. Another pointless change. "
" Ashley doesnt have a hp bar. She can still get captured though, the way she's handled during gameplay looks boring to me. Doesnt really look an improvement over og that much. "
These are all of them. I cut a few portions and ı stopped checking the leaks after around the end point of village. I can add more if ı want right now since ı already checked the cutscenes at this point but ı would rather not.
I understand and yes ı didnt play the game yet so ıdk how the gameplay feels but from what ı've seen, ı cant say ı like the story changes that much. I'm still glad the dog appears though.Respectfully, I can't agree with any of this. The game is wonderful and the best part is the original isn't going anywhere. There's nothing wrong with having options. Tasteful liberties are welcomed and the tonal change did more for the game than any remake prior. To look at all of the hard work that went into this project and allow an honest critique to be "the bell rang too early" is just unappreciative imo.

It's still more faithful to og game than both re2-3r. I'm glad it is but at the same time, ı still think that it should have been an actual new game, even a rerev title for example. Re4 didnt need a re engine treatment to me and from what ı enjoy with the game's steam port due to revamped controls, ı still think it didnt.It looks more like a wolf in the remake.
