While Capcom is spinning its wheels on the series (although Resident Evil HD Remastered was good and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 looks promising), YouTube user Rod Lima has finished a complete remake of Resident Evil 2 in Unreal Engine 3.
Working with the free version of the Unreal Development Kit, every background and model has been polished or recreated entirely and coded into a remarkable project. It's hard to believe that many of the models and animations are actually modifications of the original, but according to Rod, most of them were lifted straight from the retail copy.
Rod stated that it all started when he wanted to learn how to use the Unreal Engine to create games, and expanded from there. Unfortunately, due to copyright, he doesn't plan to release the game, but the video above contains Claire's A scenario from start to finish.
It would be nice if Capcom hired someone like him, and got back to the basics of the series. As much as I loved volcano Wesker, it's the mansion and the R.P.D. that's stuck with me.read more
