    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

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

It’s not as scary as the previous games and RE 7 forward but it still maintains the feeling of isolation and overwhelming odds that works so well for the series. Unfortunately, RE 5 and 6 copied this game without understanding why it worked so well. Expand
