    It may offer nothing new from past ports, but even in its creaky age, Resident Evil 4 remains a stone-cold classic. From its terrifyingly opening to the final getaway, it’s a hell of a ride that most AAA single-player campaigns only wish they could be.

    A wonderfully cheesy narrative, brilliant level and character design, stunning art direction, and some of the best shooting mechanics ever made all coalesce into a legend of the video game industry. Resident Evil 4 HD absolutely needs to be in everyone’s Switch library.

    No matter if it is your first time dealing with the plagas or you know RE4‘s map like the back of your hand, this is a worthwhile version that should be replayed. Even in 2019, this is still Capcom’s crowning achievement and a master class in game design.

    Resident Evil 4 is still as timeless as ever, but due to its high price-point on Switch, we suggest waiting for a sale before pulling the trigger on this one.

    Resident Evil 4 is one of the best and most influential games ever made, but this version feels a little bit lazy. Capcom could’ve improved the performance or include new controls to make the most of the hardware, but it hasn’t. This won’t prevent you from enjoying the game, of course, but such a masterpiece deserved better.

    Resident Evil 4 is still a legend in its own way, but these regular new versions never bring anything new to the table. Even worse, this Switch is showing how old is the the game, on a technical standpoint.

    Resident Evil 4 on Nintendo Switch is always a masterpiece, and still the same port we have seen on every other platform.

    This game is a classic in every sense of the word, I have beaten it on GC, WiiU, WII, PC, PS2, PS3, PS4, XBOX 360, and now it's hitting SwitchThis game is a classic in every sense of the word, I have beaten it on GC, WiiU, WII, PC, PS2, PS3, PS4, XBOX 360, and now it's hitting Switch and if you have never played this game you owe it to yourself (especially if you are a Resident Evil fan), to play this GEM, this very well may be the best Resident Evil game ever made, and now that Resident Evil 2 Remake is out I still stand by that assessment...As good as a game can GET, this is it....

    Great port and very stable 60fps in all modes (docked and handheld) ..but huge disappointment for the price (+10€) and no gyroscope support..

    Good game, just very pricey for what if offers. Also I substract a point because it’s imposible to get a physical version
