I haven't done Claire's A story yet, but I was telling Griff yesterday that I suspected this was what they did. I think part of the logic behind it is that Ada's rocket launcher drop makes more sense for Leon than for Claire, and Birkin as an antagonist works better with Sherry in the picture. I'll have to play through Claire A / Leon B to give a verdict though.Skeleton said:Being dense, it took me nearly until the lab to realize what Capcom did: They took the original RE2’s A scenario and made that Claire’s main story, and they took the original’s B scenario and made that Leon’s main story. Once I realized that it all started to make sense. I think they, intentionally or not, made Claire’s A scenario the “real” story line with Leon’s scenario there just to explain why the lab’s self-destruct mechanism activates.
Yeah this is also something I thought to myself. I'm fine with switching things up and making Claire's story the main thing, but then they should have probably gone all the way. Because the game's presented to you like the original: Leon first, Claire second. That's just misleading, and considering how few people are likely to finish the game twice, it's a shame to present them with a disjointed, confusing story.Skeleton said:All in all, they should have just made her story THE story, and used Leon for a complementary post-completion bonus game that shows his actions during the game’s events as well as explaining behind-the-scenes events like they did in RE4 with Ada’s Separate Ways.
