    The definition of survival horror genre today - grown more beautiful with age.

    This time, the conversion of this classic is loyal to the original game published in 2005 on GameCube. Even if this is a lazy port, technically speaking, it is still one of the best survival horror games ever made, and you ought to play it if you didn't before. Period.

    All of that said, if you haven't played it yet, the $20 that Capcom is asking for RE4 Ultimate is well worth it.

    PC players finally have access to a proper port of the game. It may be showing its age, but Resident Evil 4 HD stands as the best version available. There is about 30 hours of content in this edition, which runs for a reasonable $20.

    Does it make sense to spend 20 € to play Resident Evil 4 in 2014? Who already knows everything about this 2005 classic made in Capcom maybe is gonna wait for a better offer on Steam. For all the others this PC port is mandatory and even if the game has some bitterness here and there, it remains one of the best Shinji Mikami's creations, as well as a true masterpiece.

    It´s a great classic that has took too long to arrive to PC in a optimal condition. It´s a bit outdated now, but its soul and quality are still there for anyone wanting to discover or rediscover it.

    A bare bones port that embodies everything PC gamers hate about lazy console conversions. Capcom should have let this one rest in peace.

But considering that the game was originally released in the early 2000', I think this is not a big thing.

    I did like RE1,2,3 back then when it came out for the PlayStation, but I think I really started to love this series when it changed to a 3rd person shooter with this RE4.

    Definitely worth trying out, if you haven't yet.

But almost 10 years later, only a complete remake would guarantee such high score. This is not what you'll get here, though. Far from it.

    But... This is the best PC version, so I can't give it less than 7.

    Another crappy port. They didnt learn much from the first pc port. The game itself is good. It does have flaws.
    But what kills this is its not made for the pc in mind. Not to mention the crashes even on the 1.06 version. And im sure they will never fix it.

However, it crashes so often that it's almost unplayable - I've attempted all possible graphics settings to no avail. None of the support links work - I get redirected to a Ubisoft (who produced this game) page that no doesn't exist. If they fix the many, many bugs I'll give this a good review. As of now, I'm angry that I spent $20 on an unplayable game. Expand
