It's more likely that they were just lazy. How would people not notice that if textures on almost everything else (especially main character faces) were improved ? This remaster was just a quick cash-in job.
They could have worked harder and polish the NPC's too. The resident evil 1 remake remaster improved the NPC's and zombies. So they didn't look out of place. Final Fantasy X remaster failed on that aspect. I think they half added this so they can remaster it again.
Well, Resident Evil remake is a...remake, and it was completely overhauled graphically. This OTOH is just a remaster. Learn the difference.
And I doubt they would make yet another remaster of the same game.
I haven't played it yet, but I wanna play it. Is it better than the original or they've upgraded only the graphics. Graphics, in my opinion change a lot of how the game feels and plays so having better graphics can definitely boost up my enjoyment of the game.
I have played HD remaster only for one time.It was very awesome to play and enjoy more.The faces of the characters in HD version looks very awesome.I hope that this new HD remaster will definitely attract more gameplayers towards it.
The HD version is really good to play and you can get to enjoy it more in the sense that there are now more contents on it unlike what we have in the past. This is going to be a good series for every gamer out there.
I played the remaster but I can't compare it to the original because I didn't play it. The graphics feel like it's a PS2 or PS3 game when I booted it up. I think I saw a configuration in the settings that allows you to choose between the original and remastered version of the soundtracks.
