Resident Evil 2 Remake is one of the best remakes we’ve seen to date. However, and perhaps its only controversial feature, is the inclusion of Mr. X. While some players believed that its inclusion stayed true to the original game, some players felt those encounters to be boring, repetitive and tedious. If you were among them, you’ll find the following mod quite interesting.
As its title suggests, this mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake completely removes Mr. X from the game. What’s also cool here is that this mod does not break any scripted events evolving Mr. X as a friendly ghost has been used in his place.
Thanks to this mod, players will be able to freely explore the game’s environments without the constant fear of meeting Mr. X. As such, you will be able to play the game at a slower pace and enjoy additional finer details you could not see in the first place.
As for those that still enjoyed Mr. X, you know what would have been even cooler? A mod that adds the pre-rendered cut-scene from the original Resident Evil 2 game to this Remake, in which Mr. X is being dropped from a helicopter (as well as the cut-scene that shows how the burning helicopter was actually taken down). In my opinion, that cut-scene was crucial as it properly introduced Mr. X to the game.
But anyway, those interested can download this mod from here.
