Players criticize the game’s rain effects as distracting and hope it’s “simply a pre-release graphics bug,” even though fans are still eager to get their hands on the Resident Evil 4 remake.
One of the most significant and well-known video games ever released is Resident Evil 4. It’s challenging to dispute how long this game has been in the public spotlight, given the positive reviews it received from fans and reviewers of the series at the time of release and its re-release on almost every video game platform imaginable.
Fans of this game anticipate the upcoming remake with bated breath while harboring doubts about whether it will match the original’s highs. The pre-release teaser for the Resident Evil 4 remake has franchise fans buzzing about the rain effects, according to Game Informer. They’re referring to it as “nightmare milk” and equating the rain with the rain effects from the GTA remake trilogy.
According to Resident Evil 4 remake fans, rain effects are worse than RE2R
The Resident Evil 2 remake started Cap com’s tradition of updating these vintage survival horror games, and upon its release, it received plaudits for its visual realism. Twenty years after its initial release, the graphics bring Resident Evil 2’s story into the present era with high-fidelity graphics and gameplay upgrades.
The remake of Resident Evil 4 attempts to achieve many of the same objectives while maintaining the elements that made the original beloved by fans. Still, some pre-release footage has fans perplexed about the rain effects.
You can see the glaring contrast between the two games by comparing the rain in the Resident Evil 4 remake video to the rain in RE2R. Due to its enormous, clumpy, teardrop-like shape, many call the new rain “nightmare milk” and compare it to the rain effects in the generally criticized GTA remaster trilogy.
The rain effects have become a topic of discussion among the Resident Evil community, even as the remainder of the trailer has fans eager to see more of the game and finally play it when it releases on March 25, 2023. There is still time for the creators, too, if they so desire, to bring these effects more in line with what was on display in RE2R, given the game is still some time away from being released. Keep in mind, this is from early footage and might change before the final release.
