Resident Evil 2’s Broken Facial Animations May Freak You out More Than Mr. X

Resident Evil 2’s Broken Facial Animations May Freak You out More Than Mr. X

In a post on Reddit, Resident Evil 2 just got that bit scarier (or funny depending on how you look at it) when its animations are turned up by 500% making the conversation between Leon and Marvin extremely strange

Since Resident Evil 2 remake released last week, everyone and their granny are seemingly dipping into the horror-filled title and doing their best to keep it together – especially so when Mr.X shows up. A lot of people seem to enjoy the feeling of being scared out of their pants so, in appreciation of this fact, a Reddit post has cropped up to share with gamers the true horror of Resident Evil 2 when the animations are turned up to 500%

In the clip, posted by u/DPO23, we see Leon and Marvin having a rather heated conversation with poor Marvin having a hard time, but it’s the least of his worries due to what the heck is going on with his face. Marvin’s mouth seems to be dancing to an unheard salsa song somewhere with Leon’s eyebrows and eyes picking up on the beat. Once you get over how petrifying it is at the start, it actually does get funnier the more it plays – especially since the two characters are having such a serious discussion with each other.

Resident Evil 2 but the animations are broken from r/gaming

In the original YouTube video that the clip was taken from, we see poor Marvin’s troubles become more severe at the 1.40 mark. This time the animations have been amped up making Marvin look like he’s possessed and about do a 360 head turn and vomit pea soup everywhere – even going invisible for awhile leaving only a gun. At one point the extremely observant Leon makes the comment “We need to get you to a hospital right now!” – I think maybe an exorcism would be more appropriate, Leon.

Whether you find Resident Evil 2 completely terrifying or you have a crush on Mr.X like our staff writer Jordan, there’s no denying that the classic remake is a huge hit having already shipped 3 million units in one week and hitting the No.1 best-selling spot in the UK for the second time (the first time in 1998 with the original Resident Evil 2) thus taking out Red Dead Redemption 2. 

If you haven’t already checked out our review of Resident Evil 2, we gave the game a remarkable 9 out of 10. You can play it for yourself on PS4, Xbox One, and PC by picking up the game on Amazon.
