If the year was 2005 I would give this game 100/100. The graphics actually look pretty nice in this version, and the controls do work okay on a xbox 360 gampad, but I sometimes found myself wishing I was playing it on a Gamecube controller (that may be the nostalgia talking). Sound is a big issue for me (very buggy) in this release, as it was in the initial PC release, but most people don't have this issue or are able to work around it. Great game, but not the best port. Get it on sale or to impress your boyfriend/girlfriend with how oldschool you are.

Resident Evil 4 revolutionized the way we envisioned the Resident Evil series, taking a more action-oriented approach and striking the balance between horror, adventure and survival. It is a must-play if you are a fan of the series, or of the genre overall. The HD remaster could use a little bit more remastering, but this is still Resident Evil 4 in all its pureness. Highly recommended.

Resident Evil 4 is definitely a departure from the first three main series titles. It's less slow and methodical and more of a fast-paced action game. It has varied and difficult enemies, great boss battles, beautiful atmosphere, tight controls, and pushed console hardware to its limit at the time, and still looks great on those and on PC today. I love the original games, but despite its differences, RE4 is still a stellar game.

RE fans from all over the world were splitted when this game came out. The camera angle, the new combat layout, the action... everything changed. Still, the game got a very good critique, and most players nowadays refer at it as 'the last Resident Evil'. I played this one and Resident Evil 5 as well, and I honestly can't tell why but they generally embrace RE 4 and not 5 (and 6). Anyway, this game has a very spooky aura, it's full with action and bullets are not hard to find. You count with quite a wide a array of weapons... and new creatures. Some will put your nerves to test, guarantee!

I played this game when it first came out on the ps2 and If you grew up in the same era I did you will know that this is not a true survival horror game, It moved more to the 3rd person action genre. A lot of the things that made the original trilogy great , was the puzzle solving, being lost on where to go next with limited ammo & item slots and the classic camera angle have all been removed from this game. It is as straight forward as you can get, almost like following train tracks. Even on hard I never found myself running low on ammo due to being able to aim your shots at the head and the merchant. That being said there are some positives to this game, such as bosses and certain moments that felt unique, for example going through the hedge maze with zombie dogs well looking for an item to progress in the story. Pros/Cons: Pros -Unique bosses and enemies. -Story -Certain moments of intensity. -Surroundings and atmosphere. -Weapons. Cons: -Camera. (Missing that classic resident evil feel) -Lack of puzzles. -Not afraid to waste ammo. -Inventory.( Just awful like the Diablo / dungeon crawler always rearranging stuff) -Classic zombies.( New infected using weapons such as axes, crossbows, mini guns and more) -Ashley ( just an inconvenience that slows the game down) -Classic Fine, caution and danger life system was removed.(Now its a HP Bar like a generic 3rd person shooter) This is just my opinion guys, the game has 0 nostalgia and just doesn't hold up to the original. If your a fan of RE 1,2,3,CV, Dino crisis and the classic Silent Hill games I doubt you will say this game is amazing. If you're a fan of the movies then you will probably really enjoy this game.
