I still remember about the PS2 version and it was fun. I remember where all the loot was until this version for Xbox. The Loot that was there before is now hidden in the torches. The enemies are still the same but its still hard and more enemies appear then in the PS2 version. Bought it today with 1600 Microsoft points and took 2hours to download. I love the HD.

Pretty much agree with everything here, and I hated the combat and enemies when I first played it. Was addicted to grabbing healing, ammo, pesetas, and treasure, though. As well as the slower pace of the exploration,when Leon wasn't actually in combat.
For the first few games I got by with abusing checkpoints. My first Pro game abused checkpoints and used Ashely in armor. After that it was using a Cleared Save with my favorite weapons exclusively upgraded.
Since then it's a been a mission to find more efficient and effective ways to handle each area.
Then it was starting a new game and finding the ultimate upgrade path for each weapon. Efficiently shooting it empty just before the Merchant will refill the magazine with a capacity upgrade. It gets a lot more convoluted than that.
Protip: A Ganado that dies while falling to the ground will never sprout a plagas. Even if it's just knocked back while climbing over a low fence or windowsill, it will never sprout.
We've had some fun listing that kind of Useful Trivia in a thread of the same name over on the PS2 board. Still finding a few more interesting things, but those threads are long locked.
