Several Years And A Console Generation Later, Resident Evil 4 Still Stands Out

When Resident Evil 4 was released on the GameCube back in 2005, it universally  praised by the gaming community for making a beloved franchise as intense and fun as it has ever been. It's been several years since the original release and the game has been released on several different platforms, each iteration offering some kind of extra content. This HD collection contains all the bells and whistles the game has collected over the years, so there's plenty of content for a $20 price tag.

If you're familiar with the game, the feel of the controls will quickly come back to you as you'll likely fumble through the first hour or so. The button and stick layout of Resident Evil 4 has been all but abandoned by games now (with the exception of its sequel), so newcomers to the game might find some frustration in getting a handle over the controlling Leon. However, once you've gotten an idea of how navigate and aim through the game without being completely mutilated, you'll find the same terror-driven action that fueled the original release of the game.

Leon seems more interested in his hair style than he does Ada

If you somehow missed out on Resident Evil 4 when it was first released, this is a great way to check out one of the best games ever made for a fair price. And even if you're a Resident Evil veteran, this definitely a game worth revisiting.

Rating: 9.75/10
