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. That said, I've never been more freaked out than when I met a fan of action-horror games who hated Resident Evil 4 . It just didn't compute. That's because Resident Evil 4 is a near-perfect game.
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 relevant. Sadly, Resident Evil 4 HD has not received the same level of enhancement – upscaled textures are about as exciting as this facelift gets.
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. Later that year, it was released on PlayStation 2 with a host of bonus features. In 2007, it saw a re-release on the Nintendo Wii - utilizing motion controls - and once again garnered the attention of critics and fans alike.
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. Resident Evil 4 HD marks the first time the game has been upscaled to high definition, but does the game you remember fondly hold up?
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. Even if it wasn't implemented into the default set-up, the option could have provide many players with an answer to minor frustrations.
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. The initial assault by the villagers proved too much to handle, as I suffered death at the hands of the first chainsaw guy. It seems the last six years haven't been kind to me. Thankfully, this isn't something which can be said about Resident Evil 4.
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. Sure, it has frustrating elements that can throw you off your positive momentum, but the strong elements of the landmark release that was Resident Evil 4 still stand tall today.
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. It wasn’t until Capcom released the Wii version that I considered the game any fun. And even then, I never actually completed 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.
Conclusion: Ja, dies ist nichts anderes als „Resident Evil 4“. Zwar ist der Titel heute nicht mehr ganz so spannend und neu, wie er noch in 2005 war, aber dafür bietet das Spiel viel was der neuste Teil der Serie nicht bieten konnte: Gruselige Momente. Für knapp 20€ (PlayStation Plus Abonnenten bezahlten kurze Zeit nur ca 10€) erhält man hier aber jede Menge Spiel fürs Geld, denn „Resident Evil 4“ ist lang und teilweise auch richtig fordernd.
