Latest Microreviews on Resident Evil 4
Resident Evil 4 Review written Monday, September 29th, 2014 at 10:51 am.
I can?t say I?m a big fan of this genre or even the rest of the R.E. series, but this game is amazing. It is so intense but intersperses puzzles and a few sidequests to let you breathe a little. The game has a good sense of pace and has a theatrical quality, interspersing great tactical/action gameplay huge boss battles and a weapon upgrading system that gives the game extra depth. I?m still in awe of the boss named ?El Gigante? who can pick up trees and swing them at you and rip off the roofs of shacks you try to hide in.
Resident Evil 4 Review written Tuesday, September 9th, 2014 at 05:25 pm.
Essentially a action game with enough tension to result to its place in this outstanding saga. As Leon S. Kennedy you must infiltrate a spanish village to save US President daughter has been captured from evil forces. No more zombies here but ferocious villagers and enemies that put in difficulty when sorrounded. Melee moves and guns, many of them, from beretta to rifle to mine launcher to rocket launcher. Assignement Ada and Mercenaries are unlocked completing game, and they make global product most appetible. TPS game as any. Masterwork!
Resident Evil 4 Review written Friday, March 21st, 2014 at 02:48 am.
You could call this game the forefather of nearly every single cinematic big-budget action-adventure game on the market today. Yet, most of them still missed a lot of what made Resident Evil 4 so masterful. The large environments, sense of discovery, thrilling horror, balanced action, variety and imagination really make this game shine, even 10 years down the road.

best game I ever played
Resident Evil 4 Review written Friday, September 27th, 2013 at 02:17 am.
Fantastic, quite simply. It's on the same level as REmake, and actually used to be my favorite game. The gun play is so tight, and is what all shooters aspire to be to this modern day. Unfortunately, the story is largely filler and started the trend for survival horror games to become actionized.
Resident Evil 4 Review written Saturday, August 31st, 2013 at 07:00 pm.
Resident Evil 4 is a Third Person (Camera behind the character) Horror Shooter game. I played it on the Wii version. RE4 is a masterpiece of gaming. It is the most recent GOOD title in the RE franchise. Every part of it worked so well it HAD to be up here. Let me explain. RE4 is amazing because of its dark atmosphere. The music combined with the dull and creepy visuals make the perfect environment for horror. If you've played RE4 you DO remember the REGENERATORS. That's not a question, it's a fact. The most terrifying part of the game is in the Hospital area. every fan agrees. Its weapons system and general progression is something that lets you even play the game again, which is rare for a game like this. Essentially, Me + RE4 =
Resident Evil 4 Review written Tuesday, August 6th, 2013 at 10:08 am.
One of my all time favorite games, the story was ok and the dialogue was not very good, but the gameplay is just magnificent, the atmosphere is great and engaging, the enemies are scary and smart and can sometimes dodge your bullets, the customizable weapons are awesome and the inventory system is very well made. The game also features memorable characters such as the coolest NPC in gaming (subjective) the Merchant and also the most annoying NPC Ashley. The game is long which makes it awesome and has great replay value because of all the weapons. In general the game is without a doubt one of the best third person shooters out there and one of the best survival horror games. One more thing, the soundtracks are AMAZING...

I absolutely loved this game! It is a classic!
Resident Evil 4 Review written Monday, June 3rd, 2013 at 01:33 am.
Ohmygerd I have such terrific memories with this game and it's the only resident evil (out of the ones that take like 5 seconds to open the doors) that actually scared me. But that could've just been because I was younger and I played it with the lights off at night after watching a zombie movie.
