Nov 11, 2019While this 'second trilogy' compilation offers diminishing returns in terms of quality, Resident Evil 4 still shines brightly, even if the Switch port deserved a little more care and attention. The real draw here will be that game in physical form, and as always it is very disappointing to see that the other two titles must be downloaded. If RE4 is all you care about, getting the fifth and sixth entries as downloadable 'extras' isn't a bad deal and there's fun to be had in the latter two games, although you'll arguably need a friend to get the most out of them. Even Resident Evil 6 - much maligned as a series low point - can be fun if you’re after a straight-up co-op action shooter. As a collection of the 'action' branch of mainline Resident Evil games, this isn't a bad offering at all; just make sure you've got the necessary memory space for the downloads.

My only issue that may turn others away is how Capcom rips the consumer off by not putting all three games on one cartridge. I can see the reason doing it on the Eshop and maybe selling each game for $19.99 or whole at $60.00 but there is no excuse as of why these all could not be ported on the cartridge. Would have given it a 10 but you have games like the witcher 3 on the switch (which is a technical marvel) putting all that content on a cartridge and it's 3 times bigger than all 3 games combined from a length perspective. How you have games that are 14, 10, and 7 years old and not put that on a physical copy? I know for a fact they don't require much space at all considering they come from older consoles. But all ranting aside these still are great game (6 being underrated) and playing while laying in bed is nice.… Full Review »
