Unreleased: Resident Evil 1.5 Video Walkthrough

leave a comment »

The Resident Evil 2 (or Biohazard 2 in Japan) that was released was not the original version.  Series creator Shinji Mikami took on a producing role that it appears was heavily micro-managed and director Hideki Kamiya disagreed with a lot of his decisions.  Eventually Mikami dubbed the game boring and without the strength of the original and it was scrapped completely, resulting in the delay of the game another year and a complete reworking.  This is an exploration of the leaked 40 percent complete version of that original game, often dubbed Biohazard 1.5 in Capcom and also Resident Evil 1.5 online.
