    In case you haven't heard: Resident Evil 4 is kind of a big deal. With its quick pacing, intriguing narrative and unbelievable graphics, this is one of Capcom's best games. This $20 PlayStation 3 port improves the visuals, adds leaderboard support and introduces trophies into the mix. Come see why Resident Evil 4 remains the best survival horror game ever made!

    Resident Evil 4 is a 10 out of 10 game. This repackaging of the game is not a 10 out of 10 product. If you already own Resident Evil 4 on the Wii, there is absolutely no reason to buy it here other than the HD-ness, which did nothing for me.

    This set new standards in creating exhilarating set-pieces and pacing. [Nov 2011, p.96]

    Unless you absolutely need to have a moderate-looking HD version, you'd be better off with the Wii iteration because it includes multiple control setups and all the same extra features.

    This is Resi at its peak. Shame that it's a straight port, though. [Dec 2011, p81]

    There is no reason why you shouldn't buy Resident Evil 4 HD if you've never played it before or don't already own a previous release. It's almost the definitive version of the game, but not quite.

    Resident Evil 4 is a brilliant game, but that's exactly why Resident Evil 4 HD is such a disappointment. This is no definitive version or director's cut (wouldn't that be something), but a criminally half-baked attempt to winkle a little extra cash from the still-beating heart of a classic. Resi 4 deserves better than this; Resi 4's legions of devoted fans deserve better than this; and Capcom should be much better than this.

    I really wish I could give this game a perfect score but it has two pretty obvious flaws that prevent me from doing that.
    1. The Story has little to no plot containing Umbrella
    2. The Presidents daughter is down right terrible
    Other than these two minor but visible problems the game is a GEM. This game was ahead of it's time. This port is pretty good, but not the best.

I say port becauseIf you've played RE4 before then you basically know what to expect here. It's a decent port of what was a great game. I say port because that's exactly what it is...it's a version of RE4 emulated to run on current gen hardware...it's not very 'HD' as the title would suggest. That's not really a bad thing though as this was one of the best looking games from last gen, so even with basic hardware smoothing the game looks pretty good in most places. It's nice to see how the game was intended to look when it originally came out. On the down side there is no move support which I was actually disappointed with as I thought that was one of the things the PS3 version was supposed to get. I played the Wii version and actually found for once the motion controls were better than with a standard controller...point & click aiming was a breeze. The fact they didn't include this just makes this feel like even more of a rushed port. Lastly I do find the price is a bit high. $20 asking price for something that has already been released on so many platforms just seems like a huge cash-in attempt. $10 might have been too low but $15 would have been better.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The graphics were bad and remained bad.
    A waste of time on all this, it would be better to take part 9, it would be better to leave Salazar and Saddler alive, or to spare or kill another choice, and remove an unnecessary scene from the special rocket launcher against Saddler
    Need to do the final boss of the Krauser and not the Saddler, the Krauser wanted to take the place of the Saddler. Saddler must stay alive and continue.
