Using an Re4 style over the shoulder look.
A Resident Evil 2 fan, programmer Rod Lima, has taken key sections of the game and remade them using environments from the RE2 section of Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles. What’s more is that the “remake” does not feature the fixed, 2D camera angles of the original, rather a dynamic over the shoulder third person look like what we’ve seen in Resident Evil 4 and following iterations.
The programmer has done a quite resourceful thing, and borrowed everything from environments, character models, from Darkside Chronicles, and added a new weapons and inventory system to the game, while merging it with sound effects and cutscenes from the original Resident Evil 2.
There’s two videos above showing off the impressive work Lima has done. Take a look.
