Resident Evil HD Remaster Under 3 Hour Speedrun

with 4 comments


Completing a longer game in a speedrun can be not only an accomplishment but also quite rewarding.  In the case of Resident Evil, completing the game in a speedrun is literally built into the programming with the expectation that after you’ve explored the game a couple of times you will jump right into it.  The recent Resident Evil HD Remaster came out and while I found the game quite difficult in my recent playthrough and it took me over 11 hours to complete, I dared leap into an under 3 hour speedrun (albeit with the gracious help of a guide from GameFAQs).  I also decided to capture it and offer voiceover so that you can not only enjoy watching a speedrun, but see what is done and why to somewhat bend the timeline of the game to be as short as it is.  I’ve embedded the first video below and you can see the entire playlist here.

  1. i think in the part where you search the floor before you get the lock pick you can just go up and the down the first stairs it will save you time rather than going up higher in to the second floor like what he did

    • Yes, I believe that is correct. I was too worried and it was only a handful of seconds so I decided to be as thorough as I could.

  3. Maybe it could be good to say people not to play easy or very easy mode if they wanna get the special weapons after completing the speed run.
    For the samurai edge complete the game in normal difficulty or superior in less than 5 hours.
    The same for the infinite grenade launcher but in less than 3 hours this time.
