    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 It´s a bit outdated now, but its soul and quality are still there for anyone wanting to discover or rediscover it.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.

Anyone who has trouble with mouse and keyboard controls- there is mouse mod on steam, find it under "view discussions". It makes your mouse work like RE5, so basically when you turn mouse, Leon also turns that way, basically how it should have always been. This was my biggest issue with this game, but now it's literally perfect. Hopefully remake is good. Expand

But now im happily able to confirm that it is absolutely fine, its an absolutely amazing port and I can definitely recommend it to almost all pc resident evil fans. The controls, are a bit awkward, if yur not use to tank controls, but other then that it is every thing you loved from resident evil 4 with all the bonus content. I love it, and im glad that i brought it. Thank you Capcom for bring back a classic for all the pc gamers. Expand

    The feeling after the game is the same as after a very long TV series that tries to stall for time as long as possible, throwing more and moreThe feeling after the game is the same as after a very long TV series that tries to stall for time as long as possible, throwing more and more stories at you. It seems that they are all connected together, but there is a strong smack that they all live their own lives due to the excessive difference in the situation and enemies that do not intersect with each other, although they play out a single group-sect.. These stories are not bad, even to some extent interesting, especially for their time, but the problem is that by combining them all into "one long sausage", this game begins to tire you very much. Moreover, there are other problems in it that add to the level of this fatigue.
    Now it's 2020, the game was made in 2014 ... well-known bugs with QTE have not been resolved yet (fu*ng trolley in mines... fu*ng statue in castle). To solve these problems, you need to perform "shamanic dances with a tambourine" like fps manipulations or beginning to play ONLY with eng. language.
    Wildly slow turns. Due to the inability to move sideways, there are often situations when you fail to react to the enemy from the side(the enemy has time to stuff you with arrows or bullets while you turn and aim. Turning button on 180 does not always help). And for the dessert: In boss fights this is very annoying, because while you turn and shoot, the boss will have time to drive you into the ground, because you need 100500 shots to win, but 3 hits are enough for him. This is certainly not critical and completely surmountable, you just waste more time for that, but in general, from game to game, this turtle speed is just infuriating.
    Didn't find how to rotate items in the inventory. The inability to combine ammo with weapons - minor but uncomfortable.
    However, I liked the game in the majority. The story, although filled with pathos and various clichés, is interesting.
