Great game, but bad controls.FriggleFraggles | Aug. 22, 2014 | See all FriggleFraggles's reviews »
As my review states, this game has a fantastic story and gameplay. However, the controls aren't he extraordinary and will be frustrating to get used too.

Resident Evil 4 is the PC port that should have been around the first time. Some may say that this is too little, too late, but I say nonsense. I believe this game would be an excellent addition to any PC gamer’s library for its sheer force in the gaming industry. Unfortunately, this game seems to shy away from its horror root for more of an action, over the shoulder type game, but there are some horror elements left over to keep the game exhilarating as well as give it a unique feel all its own. Also, the tank controls may be jarring to some at first, but after some play time, they will be easily adjusted to, to provide an excellent experience.
A Fantastic Game!Pro_Fish | July 31, 2014 | See all Pro_Fish's reviews »
Resident Evil 4 is easily one of the most iconic games of a previous generation that should not be missed. It abandons most of its horror aspects, although there are still a good number to provide an occasional scare, but makes up for it with its fantastic third person action and interesting story. Also, as a port it is great. Not perfect, but very good. It will run at 60fps, but there may be a few hiccups. All in all, this is a legendary game that should not be missed.
Great as game, fail in RE series.Furrek | June 12, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »
I'm a huge Resident Evil fan and I'm sad when I look at this game as part of Resident Evil. It became more like action game than a horror one. This game is not scary at all. There is one moment (I won't tell you which one) that is kinda scary, but that's all. Also, where the heck are zombies? It's truly bad how this became a standard, but that's all for annoying fan talks.
As a gamer I did enjoyed this game. Fighting your enemies in Resident Evil 4 is so much fun. There are few difficult levels so if you are looking for a challenge, you will find it here. Mercenaries - the best thing that happened to RE series. In short - you have some time to kill the waves of enemies, trying to get as much points as you can, beating the scores of players in whole world. I spent in this mode twice as much time as you need to clear the games on every difficult level and trust me, it's not really a short game.
If you are fan of RE series, just try to play it as different game. If you are just looking for good game - congrats, you have found it! It's now in HD, so if you did played it before you must know, that everything that was annoying, got repaired.
A Much-Needed Port That Actually Workspickelsurprise | April 1, 2014 | See all pickelsurprise's reviews »
This was actually my first experience with a Resident Evil game, and boy was it a good one. I wanted to get the older PC release of Resident Evil 4, but I was told by many people time and time again that it was a terrible port, largely because it completely lacked keyboard and mouse support. With this new HD re-release, this unfortunate truth is no longer so.
If you're a modern gamer, the controls will probably still take a little getting used to (mostly because you can't move and attack at the same time), but there is full keyboard and mouse support this time around. There's even an option to use an updated aiming system that will be more familiar to fans of current games who haven't played something in this style before.
It took me a little while, but eventually I acclimated to the controls. Once I passed that hurdle, everything about the game was smooth sailing. The story is interesting, the characters are entertaining, and the gameplay is frantic without becoming annoying.
If you want to get into the Resident Evil games, this is your gateway drug. If you're a long time fan who wants to give it another go, you won't be disappointed.
