Resident Evil 4 HD Review: Still strong after all these years
20 April 2014
Conclusion: When I’m defending a game’s inclusion of quick-time events (I still feel incredibly dirty about this, by the way), there’s really nowhere else to go besides a Jerry Seinfeld style exit . Look, folks: Resident Evil 4 was a fantastic game when it first launch.
Conclusion: Pros: - New content (if you had the GameCube version of the game) - A fun game, despite not staying true to the name - Luis!!!! He’s just awesome Cons: - Shooting Gallery is a bitch!!!! - Ruined the rest of the series (for me) - Ashley…. Nobody likes her, nobody.
Excerpt: Resident Evil 4 is one of the best video games ever created and now, you can experience it through the Live Arcade. Resident Evil 4 HD boosts the visuals, adds in all the extra content, and lets you experience this masterpiece on your X-Box 360, all for under twenty bucks.
Summary: in this day and age? It’s widely and rightly considered a genre-shifting masterpiece, one of the greatest games of all time. It has influenced everything from Dead Space to Gears of War and many of today’s games owe their very existence and substance to it.
Excerpt: The High Definition Re-Release has become something of an “in”Â� thing now; take a game that was either popular ( God of War ) or not ( Beyond Good and Evil ), pretty up the visuals a little, clean up the menus and text, and stick it out into the world on the PS3 or 360 at a discounted price in...
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.
Conclusion: The main question here is whether you want to buy this game – again – for $20. The HD transfer is questionable, but the rest of Resident Evil 4 HD has managed to stand the test of time, despite the sequel that’s been released and the direction that’s being taken with the upcoming Raccoon City.
Excerpt: Considered to be the defining game of last generation, Resident Evil 4 is still a masterpiece in the eyes of so many gamers. Now, six years after its release, the game is being ported onto two more...
Pros: + Still holds up well, + Tons of content, + Definitive version
Cons: Audio has not been touched, Wish more care had been taken, No added content
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
