Conclusion: If you haven’t played Resident Evil 4 , it’s still absolutely worth playing. It’s a definite classic that stands along with the likes of Half Life 2 as one of the best games of its generation. Even today it’s still a fantastic action title despite some outdated shooting mechanics. The tension, pacing, and variety are matched by only a few titles, and it remains the gold standard for third person action games.
Conclusion: Resident Evil 4 is still one of the best games ever made, but less-than-ideal mouse and keyboard controls and a barely noticeable texture upgrade keep this PC port from being the ultimate version of this masterpiece that it could have been.
Summary: Resident Evil 4 is still an important game worth experiencing. The thing is, if you have played any of its previous iterations on other systems, there is nothing new to be found here aside from better looking graphics. If it is your first contact with this essential entry in the series, Resident Evil 4 HD is definitely worth the $19.99.
Excerpt: Here we are going on 10 years since Resident Evil 4 had been released on GameCube and we have a PC rerelease in HD. If I recall correctly the original PC release had been riddled with issues. With this release has Capcom redeemed themselves or is it too late?
Summary: Resident Evil 4 HD is a somewhat acceptable version of what many consider a classic game. It has some bright spots to it but the nuts and bolts of actually playing it get bogged down with a generally finicky frame rate and other problems.
Conclusion: The perfect way to play Resident Evil 4 requires a time machine back to its time and place in 2005. For many of us this arrangement is impossible, and Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition defaults as the best way to enjoy a modern classic. The entire package aches for better consistency between its original modes and suite of upgrades, but these are minor complaints; from a historical standpoint or modern approach, Resident Evil 4 remains one of the finest ways to survive...
Excerpt: Resident Evil 4 HD is now available on Steam for PC. The new release obviously packs improved graphics over the original release from developer and publisher Capcom, and players can expect the new game to run at a full 60 frames per second to ensure it's the best looking version of the game ever. Resident Evil 4 is highly regarded as one of the best video games of all-time.
Excerpt: Nine years is a long time to wait for a proper port, even for a game as celebrated as Resident Evil 4 . Its release on the GameCube in 2005 ushered in a new era for the franchise, as well as a different perspective and play style that its sequels quickly inherited. Capcom capitalized on its immense success, porting the game to multiple platforms, and the game was graciously welcomed by the succeeding console generation on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Pros: Fully optimized for widescreen, 1080p, and fixed 60fps, Characters are sharp and highly detailed, Fantastic atmosphere, Tense action and exploration
Cons: High-resolution textures cause low-resolution textures to stand out, Ada's missions use poor-quality cutscenes, causing irritating issues
