Resident Evil 2: Original vs Remake

with one comment

Fred and Jam are reunited and ready to kick off more consistent retro content, albeit this one is only half retro.  In this spoileriffic comparison podcast, the two delve into the development and content of the scrapped version of Resident Evil 2, dubbed Resident Evil 1.5 by the Internet, as well as the original full blown release.  Then they move over to comparing the quality and content in this new remake.  It’s a long ride and it’s highly recommended that you play the games first, but sit back and enjoy a horrifying trip through the Raccoon City police department and beyond.


Unreleased: Resident Evil 1.5 Video Walkthrough

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.
