I want to create this thread to make one that's more general for rerev games to be discussed together. What's your thoughts about them?
I'm personally not the biggest fan of them even though they are alright. I enjoyed them and played them for some time but they dont catch my interest these days really. I didnt even play them in my last marathon.
About the 1st one; ı personally find its existence unnecessary. It's another prequel released after re5 lin and darkside chronicles, compared to reorc and re6, it doesnt seem as unique additions as those games that are also released in 2012.
As for 2nd; ı like it more than the 1st one and ı enjoyed playing it more as well. However at the same time, ı also have more disdain for it. The reason for this is the story script is very butchered due to being altered after it was done. Idk why this happened but it seems to have happened. I'm not a big fan of some story decisions for characters in these games, especially the 2nd one.
Another reason why these games dont feel necessary is due to them giving me the feeling that capcom want to make them in order to please the fans who dislike the more action oriented nature of re5 as well as re6 while wanting more horror. I never had any action complaints for those games really, ı think they have plenty of horror elements for what they are. I have no idea why would anyone would say " A game has too much action. " while presenting that as a complaint. When these games are praised, ı've also seen re5 and especially re6 getting bashed at the same time as well. I'm not the biggest fan of this behaviour.
I would like to know more game development plans about these games.
I remember some about the 1st one. There's a trailer where chris and jill point their gun to them. Another chris talks at the end. I also know that rachel was supposed to be a man, ı think his name was richard.
As for 2nd; the reason why they wanted to make it seems to be that rerev received a better general reception than re6 which was extremely divisive within the fanbase. I've got the impression that capcom wanted to add more canon story content for re6 but instead of doing that; they decided to ruin that game's potential by using some of its planned ideas for rerev2 while others get discarded. So basically rerev2's existence seems to be due to re6 hate bandwagon.
Rerev games seem to have the worst localizations too. I still cant believe how re6 can be fine in terms of localization but rerev2 can be extremely butchered in this aspect.
But anyway; feel free to explain your thoughts about these games.
