Summary: I've met a lot of different folks in my life: genitalia-lacking asexuals, people who eat glass, people who have sex with broccoli, guys who hate pizza, women who braid their ear hair; the list goes on.
Excerpt: With Resident Evil 4 HD, Capcom had the opportunity to take one of the previous generation’s greatest games and update it to a modern masterpiece as well. This summer’s Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time for 3DS proved that, with enough extra effort, even years-old titles can seem fresh and...
Pros: Intense, gripping gameplay, All previous content updates, Unforgettable atmosphere
Cons: HD updates seem slapdash, No new content, No updates to sound
Excerpt: Resident Evil 4 on Nintendo GameCube set the gaming world on fire back in 2005 with its great action, design, and gameplay. It was a huge leap forwards from the original PlayStation Resident Evil s and still holds a dear place in many gamers’ hearts.
Summary: After three numbered sequels, two side stories, one remake and way too many gun survivor games, Resident Evil was in desperate need of a makeover. By 2005 survival horror fans had visited too many scary mansions, fought off too many slow moving zombies and were finally sick of the unwieldy tank...
Excerpt: Resident Evil 4 was first released in January of 2005 for the Nintendo GameCube. Since then it has been released on seven other platforms and is still touted as one of the greatest video games ever made.
Pros: The mechanics are still great, The art and score are still mesmerizing, Just as fun as it ever was
Cons: $20 price tag is steep for those who already own a copy, Audio sounds noticeably standard at times, Trophies lack creativity
Conclusion: Experiencing Resident 4 HD, everything is as it ever was. The visual upgrade is well received, and the game's narrative is as terrifying and enticing as ever. Capcom have played this one safe, as it would have been nice to see them try and mix things up with a new inventory system.
Excerpt: Having finished Resident Evil 4 twice before (once on GameCube, and again on PS2 for the Separate Ways campaign) I thought I'd be able to storm through the rereleased version on Xbox 360 and PS3. How wrong I was.
Makes nine years seem like nothing — Resident Evil 4 HD (PC) review
16 March 2014
Summary: Resident Evil 4 was a monumental achievement upon its release back in January 2005, and it is still one that video game connoisseurs appreciate today. What many of these connoisseurs forget is just how well the game holds up nine years later.
Pros: Tight controls intensify gameplay experience, Nine year old game still looks gorgeous, Beautiful, sometimes unsettling character design, Voice work adds depth to characters
Cons: Puzzles are frustrating and out of place, Inventory management is a pain
Excerpt: I absolutely despised Resident Evil 4 when it was first released in 2005 for the Gamecube . As a hardcore Resident Evil fan it felt like Capcom abandoned everything I loved about the series. It took me over two years to finish RE4 on the PS2 and I hated every second of it.
Pros: Character models look great., Includes all of the extra content from the PS2 version., Brilliant atmosphere with genuinely creepy moments., Gameplay still holds up well.
Cons: Nothing more than a straightforward port., Some textures don’t look as good as others., No Move support for PS3 owners.
