Forums - Gaming Discussion - Re2 would've been better with the classic camera

No way. I tried playing pre-RE4 camera Resident Evil games last year for nostalgia and I just can't do it. I'm not even sure how I did it on the first RE back in the day. The sudden changes in movement controls and not being able to see what's going on near you half the time isn't fun. Running down a hallway and not even knowing there was an enemy standing right in front of you until either the camera jarringly changes again or you get attacked doesn't make the game better. That says nothing about how shitty it feels controlling your character like it's a tank even when you can see.

No.

It's perfect the way it is.

It's my most anticipated game by far. GOTY contender for sure.

All RE games on GC would have sold millions more on the PS2.

They were flops.

This is coming from someone who loved the GC.



I do miss the old camera style, and I do believe that Capcom is trying to half arse it with fans of the original. That said, I don't mind the change, but I would definitely jump for joy if they gave us the option to run the game in RE2 camera mode.



               

Personally I wouldn't touch it with a ten feet pole if it had the classic camera style
The only horrifying thing for me with the past Resident Evil games was the fixed camera setting.
If there were an option to toogle between the two for those who simply prefer the old style then great, but alas there is not

And they would have even sold more going multiplat... as every other game.

By that definition every exclusive game is a flop.

Please, no.

Here's the classic RE camera for you: 



Yeah, I'm glad they didn't. Tank controls and fixed camera do not a good game make imo.

Man I miss classic RE cameras.

 

Funny parody, but I also laugh at Over the Shoulder and cringe dialogue, that still has yet to evade any RE game to date. 



               

Remake sold 1,4 million
RE0 sold 1,1

Mikami thought the old mechanics were hurting sales and changed the series with 4

4 sold 1,6 million (only 200,000 more than remake)

Mikami left capcom when they decided to port the game to the ps2

4 sold 2,2 million in the ps2

They changed the style and the sales didn't change a lot

Doesn't seem like much of a difference.
