Summary: I got the game for about £7.50 just because i wanted to get some gamecube games and loads of youtube videos said this was one of the best, and they didn't oversell it. It is a brilliant game. You play as an agent looking for the president's kidnapped daughter in a village full of people who seem to live a normal life but come running at you with pitchforks, knives and chainsaws. But it isn't just another zombie survival game, it feels more like an adventure game.
Summary: First let me say,I've had this since launch,due to the hype,and haven't,as yet,started it properly,why?,well as technically accomplished as it is,great graphics,well implemented controls etc.it's..just...not...the...same!,I've played it for a couple of hours and the scariest it got was when 'baghead' came through a window,spiders in the guardhouse,GREAT!,Birkin on the lift,GREAT!!,Mr X taking out a wall to get you,GREAT!!!
Excerpt: I'm going to try to avoid being biased either way here, whether it be in the "OMG ITS NOT LIKE THE ORIGINAL IT SUCKS" fashion or the "OMG RESITNT EVIL BEST GAME EVAR" way either. I previously reviewed this for Wii but decided to go more in depth this time. Those who read my other review will be familiar with my beef with this game's gameplay style and combat mechanics, but I will elaborate far more here.
Pros: Some fun shooting action . Weapons have a real kick
Cons: Should have been a mock - horror game . Cheesy and unrealistic .
Excerpt: Graphics - 95% Plot - 83% Controls - 95% Lifespan - 96% Overall - 92% One of the greatest games to ever grace a console, graphics are better than expected. fully rendered 3D settings do not hinder the frame rate or the gaming experience. Plot is a little thin in my opinion, but thats not the key point to the game. Action and survival is the name of the game, of which there is plenty to see you through the full 20+ hours of gameplay.
Pros: Genre altering style
Cons: Not really a resident evil game in the spiritual sense
Excerpt: Returning to the famous series with a bang, the long awaited Resident Evil 4 delivers everything from action that is seamingly endless and executed in multiple styles to a storyline that could shock and surprise a fortune teller. We begin with a Mr. Leon S. Kennedy (what the S stands for is a mystery for the ages) who all the resident series fans will know immediately was our hero from the somewhat blockier but enjoyable Resident Evil 2.
