A Reddit user, identified as Terriosss65, claims to have obtained a copy of the game several days before launch, taking advantage of the opportunity to capture the gameplay and share it with the community.

The videos that stood out the most were those related to the “No Return” option, presenting the new mode in action with several playable characters in motion.

A portion of the community argues that the remaster does not bring substantial changes compared to the original game.

Thus, some questions about the validity of revisiting the adventure were raised by fans. Criticisms of animations were still done to several characters in “No Return” mode.

In this sense, some players claim that characters like Joel move in a similar way to Ellie, suggesting that exclusive animations and movements could provide a more differentiated experience.

However, there are those who don’t see any problems with this similarity, arguing that the animations simply look well-designed.

One player expressed his opinion, highlighting: “Couldn’t they create exclusive animations for Joel? He looks so strange walking like Ellie.”

This perspective was shared by other fans who also noted the notable similarity in the characters’ animations.

With the official date of launch approaching, the community remains divided over expectations for the remastered version of one of the most iconic titles of the last decade.
