I'll probably buy it when it goes on a Steam sale. When playing through it on the Xbox, I felt like a good chunk of the difficulty came from the imperfect analog stick aiming, so I want to see if this game suddenly becomes a cakewalk with a mouse and keyboard.
@believer258: The Wii version was very mouse-like and while I did find it a degree easier I would also probably say it was my favourite version of the game. Resi 4 on an analogue stick is tense but with some sort of pointer it's just flat out great fun. A mouse isn't quite the same as pointing the wiimote at your TV but the principle behind it is fairly similar. I imagine the PC version will be pretty cool.
You know what? This'll sound crazy, but I never finished RE4. Or played any of the others before it for that matter. Must have played through RE5 around three times though.
Tried playing RE4 on the original garbage PC port, then again on the 360 HD re-release. Don't think I have it in me to try again. Cool game and all, I just got on the ship long after it set sail and simply can't get into it. Wish I played through it when it was originally released.
From my brief test before leaving to school...game runs good, but in slow-motion. Intro dialog ended maybe twenty seconds before the actual video did. Same with each cut-scene so far. Controls are...decent, I guess. Don't expect any great improvements (Dead Space 2 type of work-over would've been heavenly...) on that department. FPS is fixed on either 30 or 60. Can't turn on subtitles as of now...
So yeah, that slow motion thing is definetly killing the experience for me. I don't seem to be the only one, so hoping it'll get fixed. Once/if that happens, I could see myself getting into it better, hopefully.
Have played it for about an 1.5 hours now and my feelings are pretty similiar to my previous post. Switching over to 360 controller helped the experience some and made the mouse&keyboard scheme feel about as shoddy as the fan implented one in the original port. Sadly the slow-motion garbage is still there and only gets 'fixed' by switching over to 30 fps limit. It's playable, but even the low price I paid is starting to seem too much now. Hopefully it can be fixed with a patch.
