      New Residents Different Evil

      First arriving in 2005, Resident Evil 4 has made it’s way from the Gamecube, to the PS2, & Wii across the years, & is now stopping on the PS3 & PS4 in the form of Resident Evil 4: HD. The most notable change you’ll find here are the touch-ups in the visual department alongside all the features of the PS2 & Wii versions including Separate Ways & the added weapons & costumes from those versions. In terms of the visuals, Capcom has touched them up a bit, but it’s something that is noticeable being compared with the PS2. It’s not enough to garner a wow factor like the , The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection but it’s also something not really needed since Resident Evil 4 has always looked really good. The game plays just like you would expect, & includes a new control scheme that is based on the controls from Resident Evil 5. You could either use the triggers to aim & shoot, or use the buttons in a way similar to the Gamecube’s setup with the two control schemes available. If you've never played RE4, you’re in for quite a treat. You may have read about Resident Evil 5 during it’s release & how gamers wished it was more like RE4, so now you can try out Resident Evil 4 for yourself & see what all the fuss was about. This game was pretty scary when it arrived in 2005, but now so much has changed since then in terms of horror games that it probably won’t make you jump, but it still has it’s moments. It was pretty surreal to be playing this game on the PS3 & earning trophies , which there are only 12 for this game. Most are given out by completing certain points in the game, & others will require a bit more effort. Those that have played through this game countless times will easily be able to unlock them, & others will appreciate that most will add about 50 or so gamerscore to your tally. For $20, fans will enjoy going through this game once again, & those that have never experienced Resident Evil for themselves can find a nice action game with tense moments, & one that is pretty lengthy on the first play through with plenty of modes to play that add to the game’s replayability.

      Not the worst port, but a lazy one

      Earlier, Capcom released ports of both RE6 and RE5. RE4 has finally released yet again, but with the game being as old as it is, does this port benefit from the upscaling and increased frame rate? Graphics wise the game has bumped up resolution and clarity for almost all textures and objects in the game. While some aspects look great such as character models and water, environmental textures portray a shimmering effect due to the increased sharpness and low anti aliasing and filtering. It seems the motion blur filter seen in previous ports has been removed, thus increasing the shimmering. The game hold a steady 60FPS throughout the entire game, however, some actions and objects seem to still be 30FPS producing extremely jarring animations (reloading sniper rifle, some explosions, fire). Audio presentation is the same as previous ports supporting Dolby TS, however, some sounds seem to be a tad off for certain actions (climbing ladders for example), but nothing game breaking. This can be labeled the definitive version of the game, due to it coming with all previously released contents from other editions from the PC and PS2 while using the original gamecube/wii assets structure. Its a shame, due to the wii version still reigning top in my opinion, while that version is standard definition and is 30FPS, that port has all the released content, is bug free, and looks great due to being made with the specific hardware in mind and has no missing/broken effects.

      Epic classic survival horror in Remastered glory

      I have played numerous versions of this game all the way back to the Gamecube original. This edition is remastered and is presented to run on current consoles with an updated resolution and higher framerate. The game is excellent at pacing. There are times when you are walking down a quiet hallway and just a few enemies come out to fight and there are times when you are surrounded by enemies and some higher forms which take more damage to take out. This is by far my favorite Resident Evil next to RE2 and the RE Remake. RE 4 is the best at creating a mood of angst and tension all the while providing excellent action sequences and some downright fearful moments. While the graphics now do show their age, being at a higher resolution does allow for the presentation to still run smooth. The atmosphere is dead on classic Resident Evil and does evoke a sense of fear and when you beat a boss, triumph. While the game does present a challenge, it is rewarding when the task is completed. I would highly recommend anyone who is fan of action and or survival horror to purchase RE 4.

      1st Time Playthrough: Whoa!

      How the heck did I not play this game back in the day? I played RE1-3 and 6 (wah-wah) and thought those games were good of course, including 6 (I'm one of few that actually like 6)! However, I never got around to finishing 4 or 5. I can say that the pacing, the enemy and level design, and boss fights in 4 are fantastic! The story line is also quite easy for me to follow which can be difficult for me for other games. Also did I mention that I've played every version of RE4 available but just never beat it? This version is the supreme version: the hd graphics and mechanical improvements are outstanding! I just beat this game and now truly understand why this game is a treasure for a lot of people-it certainly had me blown away the whole time except in the beginning when I was trying to get used to the dated controls. If there are any of you still out there that haven't yet played this, I highly recommend it!

      Slight changes, good for old school

      I picked up Resident evil 6 and 5 when they released them on PS4 as well and I really enjoyed the updated camera angles and controls in those a lot. Res 5 especially. Resident evil 4 has some very minor changes to it on the graphical side but they did change around the controls a bit to get with the times. Some new sound effects and simple fog effects are the only changes to the game over all. I would recommend this game for the people who love the old school feel for resident evil. The camera angles are not much improved and leave a lot to be desired. This game is definitely not for a casual gamer but if you loved The Evil Within this one is made by the same guy...so take what you will from that. There is no Platinum associated with this game but there are about 10 trophies for various tasks. All in all it was not what I expected and I was hoping for a more modern feel on the game. 6\10

      The Survival Horror Masterpiece Returns

      There's not much to say about Resident Evil 4 that hasn't already been said throughout the years since its original release back on Nintendo GameCube. It's easily one of the best survival horror games ever made as well as one of the best games in the series. And for good reason. Controls are perfect. Gameplay is super fun. Soundtrack haunting. Enemies, smart and varied. Not to mention the mysterious merchant showing up at just the right times to sell you upgrades and new weapons. If you've never played a Resident Evil game before, you can't go wrong with Resident Evil 4.

      I always wanted RE:4 and I'm glad it came out for ps4. With that said, this game is fun not the best but definitely gets the job done for sure. It will definitely keep you in your toes as you progress. Definitely is a must own game for Re4 lovers out there. Add me on ps4 network at: mnillaman. Hope this review helps. Oh and I didn't give it a 5 star rating because its not mind blowing meaning the graphics. For an old game like this it's not top notch but again . . . this doesn't mean the game sucked by far. It won't let you down and will keep you interested especially if you've never played it. It's a classic RE horror survival and a must own if you're a true fan of the franchise. Looking forward to RE:7

      I got this game originally on the Game Cube in 2005 and loved it. I am a huge Res. Evil fan and had to get it on the PS4. There are some parts that are very challenging. The look and feel of the game is great. The background sounds/noises are very chilling. It plays great. This is a great port-over to the PS4. The graphics are awesome as well. If your a Resident Evil fan you need to own it, even if you already have this on another system pick it up for the PS4. You cant beat the price to have it in your collection.
