    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.

    So far the best port of RE4 and the last canon RE game in the series. Everything after 4 is a cashgrab a joke of once legendary series.

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 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

    Отличная игра для своего времени, а порт на PS4 практически идеально предает ощущение от игры как в те самые времена когда она вышла, ЕслиОтличная игра для своего времени, а порт на PS4 практически идеально предает ощущение от игры как в те самые времена когда она вышла, Если хотите прикоснутся к классике эта версия игры наиболее лучшая! Единственное что не забывайте что игра старая и некоторые игровые механики сейчас могут вызвать разве что фрустрацию, да да я о пресыщении и прицеливании! А в остальном игра шикарна, очень рекомендую к ознакомлению! Expand

In my opinion, the large Focus on action does not combine with the RE franchise, the horror elements are much more exciting.
    It was in this game that the franchise started making the mistake of turning RE into an action game, once they enhaced the action in the fifth and (especially) in the sixth game, the stories got less exciting.

    The beginning of the end of good Resident Evil games is ironically a very good survival horror game itself. Go figure. Leon Kennedy once againThe beginning of the end of good Resident Evil games is ironically a very good survival horror game itself. Go figure. Leon Kennedy once again finds himself up against biological terror as a group of cultists kidnap the presidents daughter and he most travel to rural Europe in order to rescue her. The game itself is the same amazing Resident Evil 4 from back in the day, but with a smooth 60 FPS and a lot of other minor fixes and tweaks that the pc port should have had. A great game, in an overall well done port. Expand
