Summary

Resident Evil 4 is a remake of the 2005 original Resident Evil 4 reimagined for 2023 to bring state-of-the-art survival horror. Resident Evil 4 preserves the essence of the original game, while introducing modernized gameplay, a reimagined storyline, and vividly detailed graphics to make this the latest survival horror game where life and death, terror and catharsis intersect.

Absolute masterpiece. RE4 remake retains everything that made the original so good, as well as improving it in almost every aspect.

The combat continues to be very satisfying while feeling even better to play. The added parry mechanic changes everything and basically rids of all the frustrating angles of the OG combat. All frustrating moments of the original such as the minecart have been reworked to be more fun.

The charming cheesy one liners return, while also improving the general dialogue of the cutscenes. Music is even more intense and passionate. The visuals are stunning, probably the best lighting I've seen in a game.

Hands down while I love the OG, this remake definitely surpasses it.

After 11 playthroughs, I gotta say aside of re1 remake this is the best remake I've ever seen, Capcom was so faithful to the og source material and improved it on every way for a modern experience.

Graphics, sound design and level design, replay value, difficulty levels, everything is at it's best.

The only complain I have about the remake is some of the bosses are really hard, I mean in a bad way, believe me I love challenging games like Bloodborne but these boss encounters are quite unbalanced and might make you buy a rocket launcher for them.

Overall, pretty good game and pretty good remake! Really did worth the hype and pre order ( yes I played it for the first time on game's release day )

So If you're interested in re4 remake, do yourself a favor and buy gold edition cuz separate ways is a essential part of the experience

Main campaign and separate ways, both are 10/10

Decent and pretty diverse, i still favor Re8 Village's reimagination of resident evil universe using heavy Re4 themes over an actual Re4 remake.

Phenomenal. A game, that, by all means, had no reason to be remade. It's aged gracefully, it's been ported to everything, it even got a VR version. The game that defined third person shooters should by no means have a remake that manages to live up to its legacy.

But Capcom did it anyway. The gunplay is the best RE has ever had. The level design is phenomenal, familiar places have been completely reworked and remixed. The enemies provide a healthy challenge, you cannot fire away like an idiot and expect to survive, but you won't be scrambling for your life with every enemy encounter like in RE2 and 7, every encounter requires you to think on your feet and keep moving. The parry mechanic and degradable knives are a welcome addition, giving you an option for when gaining distance isn't an option, but making you carefully consider how often you use it. Maybe you'd like to save it to stop enemies from mutating, but at the same time can you really afford to risk getting hit right now?

The tone of the game is done perfectly. The environments are creepy and oppressing. There are genuinely terrifying moments, both early and late on and the game manages to fix my biggest issue with the original game and makes the island as strong as the rest of the game. It also makes sure to have moments where you do feel like an 80s action hero like in the original, and does a good job of balancing that and the added creepiness that's in all of Capcom's remakes, and nowhere does that show better than Leon Scott Kennedy. He's more serious than he was in the original, and is clearly still bothered by the events of Raccoon City, but there's still a goofball who makes corny jokes in there. He's a really compelling protagonist and his interactions with the newly reworked Ashley and Luis are interesting and a lot of fun. The villains are a little less cartoony now, but no less memorable, and their creepiness made putting them down very satisfying.

Resident Evil 4 is a spectacular remake that will no doubt stand the test of time the same way its predecessor has.
