    You are an awesome player! I only wish I could be that fast! Its really inspired me to try and beat my measly time of 1 hour 38 minutes! I guess it is possible to whittle the time down without doing lots of unnecessary stuff!

      Thanks, I'm not really good at speed runs usually but with this game I must have played it so many times by now it must be muscle memory. As I say with other people if you are playing the US version the clock runs differently internally for the game, my 1:13 turns into about 1:30 when playing it that way so your time isn't that bad. I need to got back and do another attempt, I think I might be able to get it under 1:12 with a lot of luck.

    I've done this same run on a NTSC version of the game but I did it without the weapon modifications and never mixing herbs. Fastest time was 1 hour and 25 minutes. I think I can get this low if I can just avoid some small skirmishes with zombies. None the less nice run.

      All those short encounters do add up if you misjudge dodging the zombies, in the NTSC version of RE2 Leon the internal clock runs at a different speed to the PAL version (I cant remember the reason, maybe to do with the screens refresh rate) whenever I try playing the NTSC version I can never get lower than 1:30 using the same tactics so I'm pretty sure if you tried the PAL version you could get a decent time

      Interesting. Alright maybe if I can get my hands on a copy of RE2 PAL version i'll give it another run and record it. Hands down my favorite Resident Evil and best one in my opinion. Thank you for the response.

      Well I hope you enjoy getting another chance to play what I consider to be my favourite game. If you do fancy setting the record for the NTSC version take a look at this video http://recordsetter.com/world-record/beat-leons-first-scenario-resident-evil-2-playstation-without-rocket-launcher/13403#contentsection

      Thanks, definitely will. I know its weird that they all run at different speeds between the PAL/NTSC/NTSC-J but I still think I can shave some more time of this run just need a good solid week of trial and error

      Yea I keep thinking that but there is nothing worse than starting a run to get 45 mins in and make a mistake >
