Resident Evil 2: The Ghost Survivors

Resident Evil 2: The Ghost Survivors

I remember saying that the Resident Evil 2 remake would still be engaging even if it wasn’t a horror game. The Ghost Survivors DLC could have tested the validity of that statement if it didn’t also abandon most of what made RE2 great on top of its horror component. It’s more of an expansion to the bonus “4th Survivor” mode – a feature which I barely touched, because a timed challenge through a long, claustrophobic environment with rigid solutions to every obstacle sounds like the opposite of a good time. That said, this is free content, so if that description doesn’t turn you off, have at it. It looks, sounds, and feels as superb as the base game, and the new zombie variants are interesting challenges. It’s a narrative dead end, though, as the answer to the question, “What if these characters survived?” turns out to be just that – they survive.
