Resident Evil 2 Remake Is A Success At Critics; The First Reviews Are In! [VIDEO]

How many people completed the 1-Shot demo? What technical differences are there between the console ports? What can we expect after the game’s launch on Friday?

Comicbook has taken a brief look into the first review scores of Resident Evil 2 Remake. The lowest score they found was’s 70/100 score. The rest of it speaks for itself: Fandom – 10/10, GameInformer – 95/100, EGM – 95/100, Comicbook – 4/5, but the Metacritic’s average scores are even better. The PlayStation 4 version’s average (), based on sixty (60!) reviews, is 91/100. The Xbox One stands at 93/100 with 15 reviews, and the PC port is on 88/100 with 12 reviews. (Perhaps they should stop using Denuvo to avoid performance tanks.)

ResidentEvil.Net, a website that keeps track of the statistics of the 3+ million times downloaded 1-Shot demo, revealed that 80% of the downloaders accepted to have their statistics included on the site. Over 2.4 million people (2440739, to be exact) clicked on OK, and 574321 of them, 26%, have completed the demo. Most of them are from the United States.

VGTech has compared the performance of the four console versions (PlayStation 4 (Slim), PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One (S), Xbox One X), and this quote is what they ended up with: „The PlayStation 4 renders at a native resolution of 1920×1080. the PlayStation 4 Pro and the Xbox One X render at a resolution of 2880×1620, and the PS4 Pro downsamples from this resolution when outputting at 1080p. Xbox One renders at a resolution of 1920×1080. PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X seem to be using Checkerboard Rendering to reach their stated resolutions. The Xbox One X has reduced aliasing compared to the PS4 Pro. The game does appear to be softer on the Xbox One X than the PlayStation 4 Pro.” So the consoles are using tricks to keep their respective resolution. Since the console generation is over five years old, it’s understandable. The frame rate averages are shocking, though. Xbox One: 39.47fps, PlayStation 4: 49.84fps, PlayStation 4 Pro: 59.21fps, Xbox One X: 59.49fps.

The Japanese version of Resident Evil 2 will get two extra costumes (one each for Leon and Claire) if the Japanese players buy an RE2-themed PlayStation Store card. With these costumes, the survivors can look like originally in 1998. Everyone else will get the costumes as a free DLC from March 22. There will also be a new game mode, too. „The Ghost Survivors” is a new game mode that will be released as a free update. In it, players will be able to enjoy a “what if?” side story where three sub-characters (the mayor’s daughter, Robert Kendo, and a mysterious U.S.S. member) did not suffer at the hands of misfortune. New enemies specifically created for this mode will also appear,” the press release says.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is out on January 25 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
