Watch us play the proper scary Resident Evil 2 remake

Leon see.

Yesterday at E3, Aoife got to try out the Resident Evil 2 remake which had been unveiled with a spectacularly good trailer at Monday night's PlayStation showcase. The trailer didn't lie - this is shaping up to be a fantastic and terrifying reimagining of the horror classic.

The game now employs a Resident Evil 4-style over-the-shoulder camera angle, and some puzzles and scares have been remixed to help it feel fresh. Aoife reports that it's still soaked in atmosphere, though, and it's fun to go back to a baby-faced Leon Kennedy before he became an all-action hero.

Anyway - let's let this game speak for itself. You can watch the 20 minutes of gameplay Aoife captured in the embed below.
