    Resident Evil 4 is, and will forever remain, a masterpiece. It says a lot when you can pop in a game over a decade old, and still get as engrossed into everything it has to offer like it was the first time ever experiencing it. If you have somehow still never played this game, put down whatever game(s) you are playing and make room for this survival horror smash. And if you've played it countless times on several platforms, it's still worth forking over a couple of bucks to revisit this legendary game.

    Out of the three Resident Evil rereleases, this is easily the best game of the three. At the same time, if you picked it up digitally on the PS3 or Xbox 360, there isn’t anything new other than being able to play on your current gen consoles.

    Resident Evil 4 still feels good, and being able to have 60fps and 1080p on the PS4 makes it a beautiful display, even with the GameCube-era graphics. Still, I would liked more improves done to the title – the 30fps animations for reloading still remains – since it’s been 11 years from the original release. If you haven’t played Resident Evil 4, then go for it, because this is one adventure that you will most likely love.

    One of the best action games ever made and although this is a competent port it’s still not the definitive remaster fans will have wished for.

    A classic survival-action-horror that redefined the franchise and scared the hell out of us.

    While the mechanics are stiff compared to modern games, it’s a blast from the past that will invoke nostalgia for those who haven’t played it since its initial release in 2005.

    This version aims only for the one or two persons in the world that haven’t played the game yet. Besides the 1080p resolution and the 60 fps framerate, it is still a lazy port.

I have played from chapter 1 to 3 and so far I have encountered no bugs and little to no fps drops. The textures look great in their 1080p format so you can expect a very smooth and pretty port from Capcom. Great Job Capcom!! Expand

Expect engaging,Resident Evil 4 (PS4) is a masterpiece: a loving remaster of arguably the best game of the sixth generation of consoles. Expect engaging, action-packed and varied gameplay with RPG elements, an excellent story (that requires zero knowledge of other Resident Evil titles), as well as assorted additional modes such as the incredibly entertaining 'Mercenaries' and a 2nd storyline from the point of view of supporting character Ada. Graphically the game still looks great today, with mostly great textures, framerates and impressive draw-distances.

    This classic stands as my all-time favourite game (narrowly beating Persona 5) and is definitely a must-buy for any PS4 owner!

I remember playing it on ps2 and i loved it and it became one of my all time favorite games i then recently picked it op for ps4 and instantly remembered why i liked it so much in the first place. The game still has all its perks from the ps2 version but with better graphics. It's a classic game with better visuals what more could you wish for. Expand

Kennedy, who was one of the main protagonists from Resident Evil 2. Resident Evil 4 was the entry that took a shift towards a blend of action and horror. A shift that lead to some poor entries in the series, but worked well for this game. It’s faster paced than previous entries, but you are still limited with ammo and have to conserve your supplies. There is also a huge variety of weapons to choose from and quite a bit of replay value. Doing multiple playthroughs will give you new weapons as well as unlock the Mercenaries. A very fun side mode where you see how many points you can earn in limited time. Mercenaries mode was in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, but Resident Evil 4 made it a staple of the franchise. Resident Evil 4 is an excellent game that is still very fun to play. Expand

    This is a review from someone experiencing the game for the first time.

    Gameplay:
    This is the game's most appealing aspect. it does take an hour or so to get used to the camera controls, but as the player gets used to the controls, gets better weapons and discovers new tricks on how to dispatch enemies more effectively, the game keeps up with the player by keeping things fresh and challenging throughout the 16hour campaign. The pace of the game and the variety of enemies along with the interesting situations the player finds himself in plays a key part in keeping the player engaged throughout the experience.
    The weapons are another key element that makes this game excellent. There are plenty of weapons and weapon upgrades, and it's up to the player to choose which weapons to buy and upgrade. None of the weapons are really necessary to beat the game but the player will likely end up buying one of every type(a handgun, a shotgun etc.)
    By beating the game the player unlocks a new mode and a new gun (will keep this a secret!) with infinite ammo.
    There are also 2 extra campaigns that come along with this version that tell the story from a different character's perspective.
    Needless to say, this is a lot of value for $20 if you haven't played this game yet.

    Story:
    Cheesy fun with creepiness and humor, not the highlight of the game but adds positively to the experience.

    Graphics:
    it's what you expect from a game from the gamecube/ps2 era, however, the art and character models hold up very well.
