Review Summary

Resident Evil 4 is a simple but addictive game. The story is about Leon S Kennedy, a secret agent who works for the government, is on a mission to rescue the President’s daughter from a group of terrorists in an unknown European nation. His two escorts are captured and brutally murdered, and Leon finds himself caught up not in a simple kidnapping, but on a terror ride. Moreover the game is full of suspense and terror and you will be easily engrossed into it. The story will definitely keep you on edge, going on for more. Leon in a rural part of Europe where the villagers somewhat are like zombies. This game is action packed with eerie trails through the unknown. The sound is eerie, sharp and phenomenal. The music is always right on cue and is never monotonous. You can even hear the sound the knife makes as it goes into an enemy, and also the sounds of your gun being reloaded. What is new with Resident Evil 4 is its control system. Instead of the fixed camera of previous ones, now it is on Leon’s back. This makes manipulating the character’s movements much easier. Movement and turning are controlled using the Nunchuk's analog stick, and switch to aim-mode by using the remote's B button. The Wii remote also acts as a virtual gun. Resident Evil 4 is a game that you won’t stop playing again and again.
