    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

    After finishing Resident Evil Village i can say that Resident Evil 4 still remains as The King.

Village was actually very good and it was really cool to see that they very clearly took inspiration from RE4. Expand

As texturas do jogo estão boas como na versão PC (ou talvez até melhor) e os controles também funcionam bem. A diversão é a mesma que conhecemos no GameCube/Playstation 2, mas agora com gráficos bem melhores. O único ponto negativo ao meu ver foi a falta de legenda em PT/BR. Expand
