Yeah demo looks amazing! While RE 2 Remake is a stunning game as well it has a weird washed out look that makes it look hazy at times. RE 3 Remake has none of that. It looks unbelievable!
I’ve played the demo twice now and the controls certainly got a little more heft. Jill definitely feels slightly more heavy than both Leon and Claire wether it’s aiming, moving, or running. I’ve been replaying RE 2 recently and it’s been a little adjusment for sure.
The dodge mechanic takes some practice though. Having played twice now I’m still a little iffy on it because whether you’re facing zombies or Nemesis the timing is different and changes depending on your position, environment (so you don’t dodge to a wall), and movement (deciding which way you’re going to dodge). It seems for the most part is best to dodge left or right as dodging backwards often results in getting grabbed or hit.
One thing i don’t like (hopefully not indicative of the final game but most likely it is) is that when zombies die it’s like they become part of the scenery and get stuck in that position on the floor. In RE 2 when you kill a zombie and you walk on top of the corpse the ragdoll physics make the body move slightly. Plus, you can dismember limbs while they’re dead by shooting parts of the body. Guess they did this because sometimes weird glitches would happen and make the game look bad or funny.
Nemesis is SCARY. Mr. X is a baby compared to this monster. He is fast, can appear out of nowhere, has a variety of move sets, and most of all it feels like you can’t escape him. Definitely terrifying. I think Capcom took all the shit we’ve been talking about Mr. X and wants us to eat those words with Nemesis.
All in all, demo is fucking AWESOME! There’s so much hidden content packed in this demo i definitely want to play it a couple more times. Btw, unlike RE 2 Remake i don’t remember anything about the original RE 3 so everything it’s new for me.
