A new breed of HorrorKingTed | Nov. 7, 2014 | See all KingTed's reviews »
After years spent in the Survival Horror category, Resident Evil came back i, 2005 with a new orientation."Forget the horror. Forget the zombies", they said. This time, Resident Evil is an action game. You play as Leon S. Kenney, who got promoted from rookie cop to special agent under the President's direct orders. Your mission is to go to a remote village in Spain where Ashely, the President's daughter, was abducted. Confronting a new kind of mutant, born from a ancient parasite called Las Plaguas, you must fight your way through the village and the forest nearby.
RE4 is an action game. You have plenty of ammo and weapons. You can even buy new tools of the trade from a mysterious merchant and upgrade your gears. This game introduced the aim system that is populared in Third Person Shooters nowadays. RE4 is filled with great action sequences, epic boss fight and over the top cheesy dialogs. If you love action games, it's a must have.
This HD port is way better than the original PC port of the game. Controls are better but I recommend to use a game controller. The visuals are good and the game is fluid.
The game also has a great replay value.
Good game, but no RE flavourVisicko | Nov. 6, 2014 | See all Visicko's reviews »
I liked this game. The graphics are neat, the mechanics of hiding and protecting the president's daughter are cool, lovely shooting action, not a bad story, a tense atmosphere. That being said, I was a bit disappointed with the deviation from some concepts that I thought were central to the series. The three first games [I haven't played Code: Veronica nor RE0] had more of a suffocating and terrifying feel. I think what contributed to create it was the cinematic cameras, the interior settings, the exploration and puzzles and the sacarcity of ammo and healing items... You find little of those elements in this game, so it did not quite feel like a RE game to me. More of a horror action shooter than a survival horror, but good game nonetheless.
The greatest game of all timeGeneralcanada | Nov. 3, 2014 | See all Generalcanada's reviews »
RE4 is the best survival horror game out there. In fact, it ruined Resident Evil franchise forever by changing the camera angle and making it more action packed. That being said, it's still an extremely tense game that has extremely satisfying gun play. This HD port increases the FPS to 60 and ups the res of the textures. Note that before playing this I would recommend a controller and also to make sure you have the system specs to run the game.
pretty good as far as FPS goesrslancer | Sept. 29, 2014 | See all rslancer's reviews »
Yep the usual FPS. Closest one to this is the FEAR series. Some scares here and there but the controls are hard. I think that may be due to the fact that this is a port but its still worth playing nonetheless if you are into FPS.

Basically if you haven't played Resident Evil series before, game may seem a bit clumsy. Well that's obvious. It has been released 7 years before and people in nowadays rather spend money on new battlefield DLC than on old single-player shooter. However I enjoyed every second of it. It's combination of FPS, strategy (more or less), and the best thing ... Zombies. Cool missions, secrets, bosses and main character is Leonardo di Caprio. What could be better?
