In this review, I will talk about Resident Evil 4 HD, a remake of the classic GameCube game on the PlayStation 3.
Resident Evil 4 was first developed by Capcom for Nintendo’s GameCube. It was an exclusive to the console, but soon enough we saw the game moving to PlayStation 2. After its move to the PS2, Resident Evil 4 saw many other ports of the original title to other consoles and the PC. However, Resident Evil 4 was never ported to the next generation consoles, but the wait is now over, Resident Evil 4 has been re made in its all glory to suit an HD console. The game is now available on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. To find out more, read our review.
To start my review, I will talk about the features and design of the game.
Resident Evil 4 HD has the HD tag on it, but in reality, the game graphics have not been changed to high definition, instead Capcom has only up scaled the graphics to better suit bigger LCD’s of the current generation. This is a bad move by the developer, but thankfully, the graphics do look a little polished over its previous versions, so it’s forgivable. Aside from the graphics, the gameplay remains the same, which is a good thing actually; we don’t want Capcom doing experiments with controls or anything.
Moving further down the review, you play as Leon who has ventured upon a village where people have gone made. Throughout your adventure you will be running away from or killing these mad men, all the while keeping Ashley safe from harm. The gameplay is one of the best you will find in any Resident Evil game. There are tons of fast paced action sequences, some RPG elements and frequent puzzle sequences. All these features provide an excellent balance between the mechanics and helps keep the game a smooth experience.
To finish off my review, if you have been unfortunate to not have played this game before, now is the right time. Resident Evil 4 HD is a great game, and perhaps the best RE game you will find in the series overall, so do not miss it!
