    Very good game . Excellent graphics for 2005 , best storyline in Resident Evil Games , Awesome Gameplay , Interesting opening level " The Village " . This is not Horror game but this game is fearful . Best Resident Evil Game , even better Resident Evil , Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 6 . Very Poor Nine of Ten .

    El que esté juego sea de terror no compromete la diversión que puedas pasar con el. Puede ser atemorizante pero te impulsa a seguir andando, explorando y recorriendo el mundo presentado. Tanto es así que el peso baja pero es compensado por todas las divertidas horas que llevaras jugando.
    Sin contar el diseño artístico, la banda sonora, la atmósfera y diversión obtenida de esta entrega este título definitivamente merece estar en vuestro repertorio.

    One of the best PS2 games. Atmosphere, graphics, sounds, is really good. Not like the old Resident Evil games are among my favorite games.To me, the Resident Evil series is the last good game. Other games really doesn't suit to the Resident Evil series.

    This game is quite good and very fun, but its so overrated by pseudo-gamers and the press, as, aside from the lack of attention to small details, it has unforgivable and incomprehensible flaws. Its true that the graphics, the effects, the setting and the length are great altogether. But the enemy AI its unacceptably mindless.

Its true that the graphics, the effects, the setting and the length are great altogether. But the enemy AI its unacceptably mindless. You will find yourself in situations where you are in front of an enemy and it doesnt see you, even if you shoot other enemies close to it, or if he sees you, for some reason cannot attack you. Or enemies that walk into ground traps and nothing happen, but at the same time are placed so they must walk into laser traps and explode. Or enemies that spawn just behind you, like they came from nowhere because theres no door. Or the shocking case of a scene where an enemy shows with a rocketlauncher and you just wait so then he shoots to the wall and kills himself. Theres too obvious loopholes for certain enemies that make the game easier than it should be, and to be honest the default difficulty is already easy as you never feel like you have to manage your ammo carefully. One curious fact is that the radius of dinamite, grenade (etc) is bigger for enemies than for you. As others have pointed out, the game is based on limited controls, i suppose this is done on purpose, but throwing a grenade accurately can be very difficult or impossible, and simple things like a button to dodge the arrows of the enemies that carry crossbows for example, or more important, a way to fast change weapons with an animation (rather than pausing the game each time) are missing. The flaws of the game doesnt end there though. The game is very linear, in the sense that theres no secrets or secret areas to discover, and the full map is given to you before having explored it as well as the weapons you can get. The save points sometimes are too overspread as well, it feels like theres one around every corner, even when the area in-between wasnt challenging or lengthy at all. About the story, characters and plot, they are of the most stupid, disastrous, ridiculous and non-sensical you will ever see in a game, so its better just to overlook it. So while this is no doubt one of the best games of the ps2 catalogue, calling it the best would be an insult to other games that are much more deep and perfect and whose mechanics are much better thought out.

    You would think the game is not as scary as the previous titles in the franchise, but no: Resident Evil 4 is horrifying in its own way. It's creepy... even more: weird.

    Excelentes graficos, Excelentes puzzles, Excelente dificultad, Excelente historia, Excelente pelo de Leon. La gente dira q no es el clasico Resident Evil pero para mi esta es la evolucion del survival horror, Claro, le bajan aunq sea un 30 por ciento de tiros y esta perfecto. Pero igual el juego te trae buenos sustos, y unas batallas contra jefes colosales q... Oye simplemente EXCELENTE

    Second best part of the series after Resident Evil 2. The series completely changed the style and gameplay and became quite intresnoy, confusing and most importantly frightening

    What can I say? Masterpiece. First game that I literally conquered! If I was counting how many times I played this game, it would reach 100, no doubts! Just amazing! Can't even describe it. Amazing!

    Not playing through it from beginning to end would be missing out on a major milestone in gaming history, not to mention a hell of a lot of fun. [Dec 2005, p.70]

    Simply put, Resident Evil 4 is a landmark video game, no matter what system you play it on... Truly brilliant. [Nov 2005, p.158]
