Resident Evil 4 re-animates the corpse of a dead franchise 0

Capcom begins 2005 with a bang, with the release of the highly anticipated Resident Evil 4, directed by series creator Shinji Mikami to be nothing less than the greatest survival horror game of all time. Designed from the ground up to bring back players who had given up on the series while at the same time inviting a whole new generation of gamers to give the series a try, Resident Evil 4 revitalizes and revolutionizes the genre from decapitated head to chewy toe. Leon S Kennedy is back in H...

Four years on, RE4 is still a tour de force. 0

I'm an extreme latecomer to Resident Evil 4, having never owned a GameCube and never getting around to the PS2 version until recently. All I can say is, I wish I played this game sooner. It's unreal both how good this game is in terms of level design, action sequences and combat, but how heavily mimicked this game is. More recent blockbusters like Dead Space, Gears of War and Metal Gear Solid 4 pick up so much of what was done perfectly here in this game, which is perhaps the highest compliment ...

A truly fun and exciting experience. 0

First, let me tell you that I'm NOT a Resident Evil fan. I bought the original RE game way back when it first came out due to the word of mouth. The game frightened me a lot when I played it as a kid but I felt disappointed by the lanky controls and horrible item/save features. I never played any of the later RE games because I didn't have a good experience with the original. Now here comes Resident Evil 4, the game that turned me back into a fan. I was utterly impressed by the quality and sc...

A lazy effort for an outstanding game. 0

Resident Evil 4 is an outstanding game. Introducing for the first time or making popular gameplay mechanics that are now a staple of the genre. At the time it was also, and maybe still is, the most successful, both critically and commercially, entry in the franchise. It is then no surprise that Capcom would join the club of publishers re-releasing their past masterpieces in glorious HD. But did this amazing game received the treatment it deserved? Before going any further it needs to be said tha...

A masterpiece and a revolution for the series 0

If you've played Resident Evil 4 then you know that it's one of the quintessential masterpieces of our generation, just as our parents had Pong and Pac-man, we have received Resident Evil 4. This game looks, plays and feels great all around, hardly anything else can top this experience.The graphics in the PS2 version look absolutely wonderful. Leon, the protagonist from Resident Evil 2 looks great with an updated look and great animations. Leon moves so realistically, his kicks look great, he mo...

Starts and ends strong, but the adrenaline rush is diluted in the 0

What started off with so much promise simply doesn't keep the amazement through every stop on the long trip. Thankfully the destination was worth it. Positives + It looks and sounds great + The escort levels are well managed + The beginning and the end deliver an exciting experience + Good mix of switch puzzles Set-backs - The middle of the game felt slow, drawn out, an lacking in fresh game-play experiences - The 'horror' of this survival horror title dulls after a few hours - My first time...

Resident Evil 4 is an amazing Action / Adventure game. 0

There isn't much I can say that hasn't been said already, so I'll make this short. Resident Evil 4 is one of the best Gamecube games to be released, and one of the best games to ever be made. This is the pinnacle of the Resident Evil series and I would love to see Capcom top this. There's a ton of differences between the classic Resident Evil games and 4, as the controls and camera angles have been completely revamped. There's no more pre-rendered backgrounds or tank control movements. The 3rd...

My favorite game ever 0

I have played through RE4 about 10 times on 3 different systems.  If my computer was not a glorified word processor I would play it yet again.  I think captivated and dazzled are good words to describe how I feel about this game.  I entered college around the time Nintendo 64 came out and resultingly stopped gaming.  I bought an Xbox when that came out.  Interest in gaming rose a little.  Then I bought a gamecube and Resident Evil 4 and now I'm like a game junkie looking for small doses of gamin...

Life is too short to waste playing this Japanese garbage 0

Resident Evil 4 finally comes to the Xbox 360, after starting life on that peculiar little console the Gamecube. I've often heard it called one of the greatest games of all time, by various members of the gaming press and others. This is extremely high praise. Well, never got to play it, seeing as how I never owned a gamecube, though my college roommate did. Watched him play it a couple times before returning it. Guess he didn't enjoy the game much. Now that I've played the game, I completely un...

Resident Evil 4 (WII) 0

This version on R.E is in my opinion the best version out. The weapons availuable in the game are incredable. It has the totally origional pistal as well as the amazingly powerfull rocket launcher. This game also offers after game awards such as the infinate rocket launcher, matilda and (if player has completed seperate ways) an infinate machine gun. Once you have completed the game you also unlock extra's, which include seperate ways and many more. This game also has boss's of all levels of all...

Resident Evil 4 Review for PS2 0

The game begins with a flash back to the story of Resident Evil 2, the tragedy of Raccoon City. Then we are welcomed to the rural area of Western Europe where Leon S. Kennedy is being driven to the last known sighting of the President's (of the United States, of course!) daughter: Ashley Graham. You are then thrown into there investigation then after. You first appear to enter a house where Leon questions a man about Ashley, and the fellow lacks a sense of understanding except for a swift strike...

An amazing Wii remake of a cult-classic every adult gamer should 0

I'd be lying if I said RE4 wasn't one of the best games I've played in a very long time.I was a bit worried after playing Dead Rising to death to go back and play Resident Evil, but RE4 definitely filled my thirst for blood and gore.I've been a fan of the series since the very first Resident Evil title, back in the days of the corny b-movie style voice-overs and I'm happy to say Resident Evil is still keeping things fresh but at the same time following a tried and tested formula.Long past are th...

Shinji Mikami re-invents the survival horror genre 0

When Shinji Mikami of Capcom set out to re-invent the survival horror genre, he did so by giving the player more bullets, then multiplying the number of enemies. The result is an experience that retained the vulnerability of being overwhelmed by mobs of unnerving creatures, but added the element of action-style gameplay. RE4 is really an astounding graphical achievement on the PS2. These are some of the best graphics ever represented on the console. The use of color and lighting really conveys ...

Resident Evil 4 (Wii) 0

I Have been playing Resident Evil 4 since the release year of 2005. It is in "My Top 10 Favorite Games of All Time" And well deserved! I originally bought it on the Gamecube and beat the game easily 10 times (Obtaining every Secret). When I bought My Wii and heard that they were Re-Releasing Resident Evil 4, I had to go and get it. When I popped the game in for the first time, I didn't expect what I got. That game that I came to love only got BETTER! With increased Graphics, All the exclusives f...

Resident Evil 4 is now on the Nintendo Wii so how good is it 0

Resident Evil 4 has appeared on the Gamecube,PS2 and PC. The question is does it play any better and is it worth getting for the Wii.If you have played the other versions of this game you should know the story. You are Leon Scott Kennedy sent on a rescue mission to rescue the presidents daughter. Once you are past the first chapter you rescue her but you then have to protect her and that is no easy job.This game like previous installents in the series has an over the shoulder biew which makes it...

An absolute Masterpiece 0

    Resident Evil 4 was released on the Gamecube back in January 2005.  It received much critical acclaim and won many Game of the Year awards.  Later on in the year, it was released on the Playstation 2 with more content.  In summer of 2007, it was released on the Wii with the content of the Playstation 2 version, and the awesome control scheme of the Wii.  This review focuses on the Wii version, but I do own all 3 versions.    If for some reason you still haven't played Resident Evil 4, the st...

Resident Evil 4 0

The best horror game I've ever played. It was incredibly awesome. The zombies look so realistic and the characters are amazing. It was fun to solve all sorts of mysteries and explosre the vast areas we were given. The graphics were very accurate and sharp, and the movement and angle of Leon while he runs or walks is right on target. It was fun to have Ashley follow behind, and to save her whenever the infected humans came into view. Overall, concept = amazing. 5 stars, I believe its deserving. ...

They are NOT zombies! 0

In a season where Wii games are exceptionally rare, not to mention good games, people tend to notice any sort of release. Instead of a new Resident Evil adventure, Capcom chose to (yet again) re-release Resident Evil 4 following the adventure of former cop, now secret service agent Leon Kennedy and his quest to save the President's Daughter. Now adapted for Nintendo's revolution, the Wii. For those not already familiar, this review will be a mere glance back at Resident Evil 4, and take the mos...

RE4 Builds Constantly, Peaking at 'Awesome' 0

RE4 is one of my favorite games ever for multiple reasons. 1: It boldly marches into a new style of gameplay. The 3rd person view and the overall setup is completely new. The number of puzzles in the game have been reduced to a minimum. Resident Evil 4 is not your big puzzle based game. Instead it is all about shooting people. Some people played the older RE games just to shoot zombies, and that is what RE4 caters toward. 2: Graphics make this game awesome. RE4 is definitely among the top few ga...

A Perfect Game For A Decayed Console 0

This game is almost worth buying the entire console just to play it. Even though this game has been re-released for the ps2 i still prefer this version just entirely on the fact that the control scheme is much more intuitive in my opinion. The game is essentially this: Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil 2 is back and is on his first day on the job of protecting the president's daughter when BAM! she gets herself kidnapped by bio-terrorists from some spanish country. Tough break on Leon's end he's n...

Instant Classic. 0

Nearly everyone who has played Resident Evil 4 will tell you at the very least that it was a welcome change to the survival horror genre. While some may not agree with the Game of the Year title, most will at least agree that the game is great, and a much needed step forward.The graphics are extraordinary. It pushes the Gamecube to its limits. I'd go as far to say that it can hold its own against most console games around today. As far as it pushes the Gamecube, it still holds a solid frame rate...

Resident Evil 4 (Wii) Review 0

With its release on the GameCube in 2005, Resident Evil was an instant hit. Within just over two weeks, the game sold over 300,000 copies and was subject to highly positive reactions from fans and critics alike. To date, the game has sold roughly 4 million units on the four platforms its been released. Not long ago, Capcom and Nintendo ported the game to the Wii, resulting in what is arguably the best version. For those new to Resident Evil 4, the story follows Leon Kennedy of Resident Evil 2 o...

well to start this out resident evil 4 is the best in the series so far (i think the 5th is going to beat it out.) but anyway i love the wii edition. its much easier than the gamecube and ps2 versions. i think the aiming circle was needed for those people that arent good aimers with the laser dot. also re4 has great graphics compared to the previous games, and i like how they put leon and ada back in the series. i didnt want them to be forgetten after re2 but the game box says it all ( creatures...

Amazing.... My jaw dropped every minute because of this game. Is it real? Can a game be that good? I didn't believe it how addicted I was when I first played on my friend's gamecube....When it came to PS2, I ate it! I didn't like the other RE that much but this one ruled! Amazing graphics, addicting gameplay The ones who played this game and then say it's so-so are @$$holes. So if you have a PS2 or a gamecube what are you doing?

Everyone is awesome in this game, thus this game is awesome. 0

Oh what a surprise. Never thought I'd like this game as much as I do. I'm a huge Resident Evil fan and i've finished every RE out there and this one is the icing on the cake. There isn't a lot you can say on a near perfect game. This is the evolution of the RE system and it is superb. Although people like to say that the gameplay is drastically different than past Resident Evils, to me it felt like it was the same control scheme except that they put the camera on Leon's shoulder instead of havi...

Evil has a new face 0

In 1996 Capcom shook the world with their controversial yet inspiring survival horror title, Resident Evil. We've seen the series progress and we've seen countless spin-offs such as Outbreak and Dead Aim, However Resident Evil 4 has once again raised the bar for the survival horror genre. Resident Evil 4 pulls away from the usual formula which we've been used to the past ten years and gives the Resident Evil series a much needed face-lift. Leon is back and this time around he's certainly no rook...

Resident Evil 4 is a horror FPS game which does things a little differently compared to the other Resident Evil games. Sometimes in a good way and sometimes in an extremely horrible way. You play as Leon Kennedy, a survivor of the Raccoon City incident that occured during the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3. He now works for that government and is sent on a mission of find and rescue the President's daughter who has been kidnapped by a mysterious cult. There's a sighting of the President's daugh...

 There's not much that can be said about this game that hasn't already been said in the GC/PS2 versions, but it's just simply put, THE best version of this game to date. And if you don't own RE4 for any other system already, then buy this. Even if u have beaten it. The entire premise of this version is for mainly the GC owners that got SHAFTED of the extra features that the PS2 version was given. Now the Nintendo fans get the extra features, which although not overwhelming, put a nice tou...

As published in the University of Virginia's Cavalier Daily Resident Evil 4 delivers gruesome survival-horror action in Capcom's best title in the series to date.

Great gameplay and graphics make RE4 a must-have title for both long-time Resident Evil fans and newcomers alike. The story of RE4 is simple but effective.

If you’re reading this right now, you’ve either played some iteration of Resident Evil 4, and maybe beaten between 1 and 100 times, or you’ve never played the game. Either way, this version of the game is a must buy for everyone. Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition is a remake of the GameCube and PS2 versions.

This is a game that I like. It's a survival horror game that felt like it was made just for me. With the right length, difficulty and style of gameplay. There was only one thing that I didn't like, the music. It was more irritating than enjoyable. There was some more stuff in the game that you could rip on, like how some environments look like they were painted in the same colour, but they are minor and doesn't take away from the experience. This is a game that I would recommend to everyone who ...

Resident Evil 4 has been a long time coming. First said to be released on the Playstation 2 back in 2000, then later being made 4 different times. The first attempt at Resident evil 4 was Devil may cry. Devil may cry was originally planned to be Resident Evil 4, but according to the creator the game strayed to far from the past Resident Evil games, so it was turned into a new project. The other notable version seen by public eyes would have to be what Capcom dubbed as “Resident evil 3.5”. This w...

I can't stress how amazing this game is. Not only is it the best horror game ever made, but may be the best third person shooter ever made. First of all, the gameplay. It is atmospheric, and scary. You need to get from point A to point B, while blasting through a large variety of monsters and enemies. The enemies are extremely fun to fight because where you shoot affects how the enemy acts. Shoot them in the knee, they fall down. Shoot them in the hand, and they drop their weapon. Shoot them in ...
