The iPhone version of Resident Evil 4 is now available officially available on the iTunes store for only $8. It looks pretty damn impressive to me, but don’t expect the same experience as on consoles.

The game is actually a port of another, older Japanese mobile phone version. Nevertheless it has impressive enough 3D graphics in the over-the-shoulder view, location-based damage and even a Mercenaries mode. Like the original game.

I think I'll stick with the Cube version of this game.

You have to aim with the fake stick? That looks frakking horrible.

That looks like the least fun game ever.

Why people hate the iPhone games so much? -- the graphics look about the same as a PSP and for the touch screen navigation, they're making a controller for iPhone by the way...

Ehhh... That's cool, but I think I will stick to the Wii version.

Resident Evil 4's controls were clunky enough to being with... this looks unplayable to me. What Capcom employee thought this was a good idea. People who don't own a Wii, GameCube or PS2(and people who do have no reason to buy this shitty port) probably aren't interested in the game.


Still, this gives me some hope. If Capcom though an iPhone port of RE4 would be profitable, maybe they'll make a Wii port of RE5(that hopefully doesn't force a retarded AI partner on you when you play alone).

@Icemael: So, this game is really bad even if you haven't played it yet?

This game just doesn't really make any sense to me on an iPhone.

The iPhone is now a threat.

I've played RE4. I know what RE4 is like. This port is uglier, and has managed to make controls that already were poor considerably worse... I don't need to play it to see that it's bad.

From a technical standpoint, i think it's a pretty neat feature.
We played that thing in 2005 on the GameCube, FCOL!

But the experience will not be the same...

Somewhere, in some country, Resident, Evil, 4, and i-phone are all Porn keywords.

Impressive, but console versions ftw. Those controls look messy as Hell.
