DE could have been better imo. There was some funny stuff in it but overall it felt mediocre compared to a lot of chapters in the regular game. If I didn't play Mercs so much I think I might have enjoyed it a bit more though. I like the bonus characters in LiN more as well. Plus DE upsets me because it's a perfect Mercs mode map but it's not in Mercs mode.
"I prefer Desperate Escape because it had more action. "
I wouldn' t bother to ever play through lost in nightmare a second time.
I might play through desperate escape a second time with a friend on professional or something though.
Also rebecca is my favourite mercanaries character and she came from desperate escape. (All that ammo she starts with, 2 first aid sprays, and that splash aoe on her 1 hit kill melee's)
"I actually liked Lost in Nightmares more because it wasn't action scene after action scene like Desperate Escape. It was closer to what I once expected out of a Resident Evil game. Plus, it included the Barry Burton mercs character. "
I just finished Desperate Escape (bought it on PSN now that it's on sale for $2.99). I really enjoyed it.
However, Lost in Nightmares reminded me of the original RE which I played a ton as a kid so I have to go with that one. The nostalgia factor wins it.

Same, Lost In Nightmares was an otherwise fantastic throwback, though sometimes it was a lil too thrown to your face. But it was far too short, even though they both are of similair length, Lost In Nightmares mostly has you simply taking in the atmosphere and appreciating all the references to the older games. Which loses its appeal after a first few playthroughs, Desperate Escape is still fun after I've played it around 5 times now.
This. I would've enjoyed Lost in Nightmares much more if it wasn't so short. Desperate Escape was a little too straight-forward though. I wish they made some more DLC though.
