Excerpt: The worst thing about Resident Evil 4 on the PlayStation 2 is that you have to beat it again to get to the new stuff. That's not exactly a trial, but it is a little frustrating for those of us who played the GameCube version to death.
Summary: In case you haven't heard: Resident Evil 4 is kind of a big deal. With its quick pacing, intriguing narrative and unbelievable graphics, this is one of Capcom's best games. This $20 PlayStation 3 port improves the visuals, adds leaderboard support and introduces trophies into the mix.
Excerpt: Resident Evil 4 was a huge step in a different direction for the Resident Evil franchise (Survivor games don't count because no Resident Evil fan will admit to having played them), replacing the fixed camera perspective and exploration with a more action game-like over the shoulder view and...
Conclusion: PS: Resident Evil 5 is the same deal. Some people find the idea of killing African zombie-monsters more offensive than killing American or Spanish ones because African zombie-monsters are black. What they see as racism, I see as using an interesting locale.
Conclusion: RE 4 is a must play, a must own, a must replay, a must everything! I've tried many times to make a Top Ten Favorite Games Ever list, and I usually don't get past 3 or 4. It is just that hard to name the best of the best. I do know one thing though. Resident Evil secures its place as my number 2.
Excerpt: Immediately after beating Resident Evil 4 , I started up a second go-through of the game. Not one of the unlocked extras, such as the Mercenaries mini-game, the two sidequests concerning supporting character Ada or the more difficult “professional” mode, but what was essentially a "new game +" with...
Excerpt: In all honesty, we didn't realize they still peddled shit like this. A console port so insultingly cut-and-pasted that its menu systems make you weep, its refusal to recognize even the existence of a mouse makes you incensed with anger and its insistence on showering one of the greatest games of the...
Pros: Amazing action game, Sheer gaming class, Scares the hell out of you
Cons: No mouse support, Graphics don't work on PC, Doesn't belong here at all
Excerpt: Gamers who have heard the deafening buzz for Resident Evil 4 and have not been enticed probably belong to one of two schools of thought: they either don’t like Resident Evil games in particular (preferring say, the Silent Hill games), or they don’t like survival horror games in general.
Excerpt: Back in 1998, I had my first encounter with the Resident Evil franchise. I rented Resident Evil 2 and got hooked. I immediately ran out and bought the game, finished it, and never played another Resident Evil game again. Well, I take that back.
Excerpt: If you weren't already aware, Resident Evil 4 has been available for the GameCube for some time now. It is, without doubt, one of the finest games ever made and its existence alone made purchasing a GameCube worthwhile.
