I rather enjoyed this game; When I was young, I played Resident Evil 1, 2 and 3 and I think that's the problem here with a lot of people. People expect it to play like a game they played years ago; Completely ignoring the fact that the industry and even players have changed.
If Resident Evil #1 released these days, It would be flamed. The controls were terrible by today's standards, There's no hand-holding whatsoever and the limited inventory just don't work when compared by today's standards.
"But what about the HD Remaster?" - Well, As you well know Resident Evil is a massive franchise with fans of the old games that many developers dream of. The nostalgia alone sells copies. But don't get me wrong; It's a fantastic game - Like really, really good. But not one that would survive without the Resident Evil brand these days.
Games have to update; Change up their mechanics to fit in a world where the games today aren't the games that players were playing years ago.
This is Capcom's attempt to introduce a new generation to the Resident Evil universe. Using characters from the old games (As well as some new additions), Capcom have updated the gameplay of the classic Resident Evil games (To be more in line with what gamers "Want") and sprinkled some innovation on top and it's a fantasic game that I highly recommened.
The reason I've mentioned all that stuff above is that a lot of negative reviews are from people who haven't realized that games HAVE to be updated mechanically as well as aesthically to stay relevant these days.
It's the exact same reason MK X doesn't play like MK 1, 2 and 3. You just can't pull something like that off anymore. The compeition is different, the customers are different and the tools that are around these days are fantastic stuff.
If you're still not convinced; Think of the freakin' Beatles. They couldn't go on making soppy pop-love songs their whole career; They had to update their image, Change their style. To fit in not only with the change of fans but with the music industry as a whole.
This is Capcom's "White Album" and I have to say it's a rather fantastic one. I noticed looking at the forums on Steam a lot of people have reported bugs; But I managed to complete the game reletively bug-free; In fact, I don't think I encountered a single bug in my 13 hours playthrough.
I hope this review has helped some people and I really do hope you give the game a go; It's definately a fun experience!
