It could work fine by adding in the over-the-shoulder elements and keeping the action rpg elements from PE1. You would be getting the first game, but semi-RE4/RE2R style. I know PE2 was more RE style in the past, but kinda worked against it. The lack of a memorable soundtrack and more "ambiance" didn't do PE2 favors.I think I would prefer it stick as an RPG or go the route of the FF7 remake. Parasite Eve 2 would work well as an over the shoulder but so few rpgs are set in the modern day, it would be a shame to lose a good one.
