    loved the original had to buy this there is very little difference from orginal but short Break Down 1. Solid story. They did a good enough job to keep you engaged. 2. Lots of boss battles that are fun to play! 3. The game took me ~20 hours to finish, which means I got my money's worth. 4. The music and enemies made for a very creepy combination at times. In certain areas I could feel my anxiety creeping up, which is always a sign of a good "survival horror" game. 5. You're constantly walking that line of not having enough ammo, which makes you look for different ways of dispatching enemies. 6. Lots of weapons and ways to upgrade them (stocks, capacity, damage, etc.).

    The Best of the Best

    Really deserves a 6!!! Simply put, one of the greatest games EVER made. Yes, it isn't up to snuff in terms of the graphics that newer games render, or even RE5. But the new HD upgrade looks amazing for a game that first came out on the GameCube. And what stands out and makes it such an experience is the game play, coupled with unparalleled production value. The music is creepier than ANY horror movie I have ever seen, and the controls are spot on, especially for a game that isn't strictly a shooter. Really, do yourself a favour and buy it. It will stick with you and every game that you play afterwards will invariably be compared to this. It's that good.

    It's RE4. And... not much more. But that's okay.

    If you haven't played RE4 before, stop reading reviews and just play it. It's one of the best video games ever made, and still holds up well over a decade after its original release on the GameCube. This release is fine, and cheap, and the XB1 controller is really comfy for the game. For those of you who have already played RE4, there's some strange stuff in this port, like a subtitles option in the menu that can't be interacted with. You can't turn subtitles on, but the option is there. It's a bug that will probably never be resolved. There's also a weird bug with the aiming animation where it loops much too quickly. Pretty distracting.

    Resident Evil 4 originally released on the GameCube in 2005. While some of the mechanics and the gameplay overall could be considered dated, the tension this game presents is still relevant today. I did notice some weird issues where sound effects were delayed as well as other minor bugs. This didn't ruin the experience, but did take me out of the immersion occasionally. As far as graphics are concerned, it runs at 1080p with 60 FPS but has no anti-aliasing. I personally wasn't too bothered by scaled visuals, but that is just something to know going in. Overall a great game that is still worth playing if you missed it in 2005.

    Is this game as good as we all remember? The answer is both yes and no. First off, the remaster plays well and looks okay for the most part. There are some weirdly compressed videos though that definitely mar the presentation. After replaying this game I came to the conclusion that the first 1/2 is waaay better than the 2nd. It actually made me appreciate RE5 and RE6 a little more. You could see where the series was going creativity upon completion. Still, this game was incredibly innovative for its time, and playing through it was a lot of fun. Also, the price point makes this an easy buy.

    As I've already reviewed the game on GameCube I'll make this short and sweet. This game plays exactly how you think it will, controls being the same and so on. The main upgrades are smoother graphics and animations which really make a difference if you played the older version. This is, in my opinion, the best RE game to date and putting it on the current gen consoles makes me replay the game a lot more. Keep in mind the as I said before the controls are the same, so for some it might take some getting used too, but to those who played the original its nothing new.

    Resident Evil 4 is without much counterargument, one of the best games ever made. That's really all you need to know considering its over a decade old. But if you're wondering what makes this release special, it is, of course, the graphical upgrades. The game runs at 60 frames per second and in 1080p. The textures are improved from the original (though they're generally not very pretty), and you have the option of including some post-processing effects like motion blur if you want. Just buy this game. It's so incredibly good.

    Anyone who has ever played the Resident Evil series knows that RE4 is the game that changed the horror game franchise forever. I have several remastered versions of this game, however this version is the best on console. The game has never looked better. In fact, the entire game has been updated including the texture which enhances its already scary atmosphere. If you are a RE nut like me, this is hands-down the best version of this classic game on console.

    This game is great, only minor criticism is it would have been nice to see Capcom give it a full HD remake treatment rather than just bumping up some of the visuals a little. Also forgot about bad the controls were, lol, but just took some re-acclimation. It might sound like I am dogging the game but gameplay wise and storywise, this is a must play if you're at all interested in Resident Evil games.

    HD Remaster of a Classic

    I can't remember how many times I played through this game in the past. This started the shift in the Resident Evil Series from survival horror to more 3rd person shooter. Yes there are still scary scenes but the game is much more fast paced. QTE(quick time events) seem to be a lot easier in this remaster and the game itself looks extra crisp in HD. Highly recommended to anyone new and old to the game.

    This remains one of my favorite Resident Evil games (next to Code Veronica) and it still holds up to this day. RE4 still looks good, and has quite a solid (albeit not scary) that is a lot of fun to play through again. The control takes a bit of time to get used to, but I've had a lot of fun with this game. Included are the special missions featuring Ada and The Merceneries missions.

    i purchased this game on an impulse. because I had the original version for Wii which I thoroughly enjoyed. I should have read the reviews first. in this version for X-Box one the characters moved slowly. Targeting was sluggish making it impossible to stay ahead in the game. I abandoned it after 30 minutes knowing it was not money well spent. Let this onne pass.

    There's not much left to say about Resident Evil 4. It was a defining moment in gaming history for the survival horror genre. Is it easy? No. Is it fun? Most certainly, if you're willing to give it a try. It's a slow burn, you need to think about how you're going to do this, you can just run out and start shooting. Heck of a game.

    They did everything right besides the controls/view, when you're​ walking or running they did not upgrade it, which I say is a big no no! Walking/ view is 2d, all on the right stick. It's so frustrating! It drives me crazy! It takes all the fun out of the game, because your trying get the view right all on the right stick, not separated on left n right! Grrr!

    In my mind, RE2 lives in nostalgia as the best RE game in the franchise, but...in reality, its RE4. RE4 has everything and still holds up today. I got this for $15 with my Gamers zone discount. Worth every penny even if you haven't played it for a while. Not much of an upgrade though from a remaster standpoint. Certainly better then the original.

    Resident Evil 4 is an absolute classic, and to be able to play it again on XBOne is an absolute treat. While I'm having difficulty trying to get used to the classic controls again, it's a real blast from the past and a joy to play through again. If you've not played this before, you should, just give it time to get used to the controls!

    A turning point in the series, RE 4 marked the modern form of RE as we know it today. It's of many opinions the the series never really got any better than 4. If you missed it the first time out it's a must play and if you have played the original than it's worth a play through on a modern console with sharper graphics and better frame rate.

    This game has been reviewed and hashed a hundred times over - what is great is this game is available on the XBOX One, with the elite controller, to play at your liking. It could have been an XBOX backwards compatible game and run just the same, but is a "new release", The nice part is this is a disc game with high replay-ability.

    Have you played RE4? You should buy this and get the updated presentation. Have you never played RE4 before? This is one of the best games ever made, striking a clean balance between terrifying (the opening moments will make your knuckles white) and action packed. Great game, wonderful experience made better with the remaster work.
