Even moreso than the first Resident Evil remake, Capcom’s upcoming reimagining of Resident Evil 2 feels like a truly new game. Thanks to a new over-the-shoulder perspective and the power of the Resident Evil 7 engine, Capcom’s survival horror classic has never looked so beautiful — or been so terrifying.

I got my hands on Resident Evil 2 at E3 2018, where Capcom set the scene by having me walk through a recreation of the Raccoon City police department, complete with real-life zombie actors that leaped out to scare me at every possible turn. After squealing like a child a few times, my adrenaline was pumping, and I was ready to play.
