Resident Evil 2 Remake has been celebrated as a breath of fresh air. A lot of that is priced at the game's many modern updates. Gone are the old-fashioned days of fixed cameras, terrible shooting controls, and dialogue that sounds like it was written by someone recovering from slumping into a 30-year coma during a Dallas marathon. And there are not any annoying gem puzzles, either. Mr. X does not crush your head like an empty soda can.
In the original Resident Evil 2 Mr. X chased you around in the B-story of the game, mostly to remind players how they were doing it. however, he's all over the place, popping up (or through) when you least expect it. 1
But it's not that the Capcom has spent the past 20 years studying human psychology to deliver the perfect jump scare. They let a lot more than that: They let Mr. X off the leash.
Mr. X is not like other lazy video game bosses who lounge around their perfectly staged volcano lairs waiting for a cutscene to trigger. Mr. X has shit to do and people to rip in half, so he's always out there for the player character. This was confirmed by YouTuber SheSez. Boundary Break Mr. X sees himself stomping around the place like an angry dad looking for the remote. That's because, like the clever xenomorph in the closet-hiding simulator Alien: Isolation Mr. X is a dynamic villain. Or more appropriately, to ambient Michael Meyers. This unkillable, unstoppable force is always searching, listening, and ambling slowly towards you and your brittle spine.
Mr. X more terrifying in ways that Umbrella Corps' fleshy tentacle demons can only dream of. He's one of the rare enemies who, apart from a few contractually bound scripted events, gets to play the game.
