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 It´s a bit outdated now, but its soul and quality are still there for anyone wanting to discover or rediscover it.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

    One of the best games of all time and maybe even my favorite game of all time. It's just so well done, specially by 2005 standards.

"What are ya buyin'? What are ya sellin'? Heh, heh, heh, heh!" There are plenty of distinctive levels and a good variety of monsters along the way. My sole grievance is that the inventory system mandates pausing and unpausing the game. But overall, a great game for its time. I'm waiting patiently for the Resident Evil 4 HD Project to finally be completed, which will assuredly make this game look amazing. Expand
