5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful, 20 Mar 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Resident Evil 4: Limited Edition (PS2) (Video Game)
This is truly a masterpiece of a game, a real gem.

With the inclusion of old friends from RE2 and similar items to get RE4 stays true to the series we all know and love.

With added 'Action' buttons and kicks and neck-breaking there is a breath of new life to an age old classic.

With visually stunning environs and superlative gameplay this RE4 is itself an untold classic. Many RE fans had doubts, myself included, about the modernisation of a cult classic. We thought 'would it work' and by heaven and hell it really did. There is the same old playbility with various unlockables that we are by now familiar with. There are also ones we are unfamiliar with and they are a welcome surprise too.

The merchant system again had question marks over it and yet again it fails to disappoint. With the exclusion of zombies we question its atmospheric, eerie quality, synonymous with former titles. Dont, its all achieved here as well.

There is undoubtedly more freedom and the new targetting system enhances RE 4 yet further.

The Mercenaries is a great side edition and a worthy challenge for any gamer.

Though i have given RE4 a glittering review there are other things that perhaps may have been improved, but they are only little things as the game is just exquisitely produced.

Though the environs are massive i feel that maybe elements of the GTA series may enhance this further as there are some places that are sealed off in the game.

Unlockables are good but an even better unlockable would perhaps be that some of the characters unlocked in the mercenaries game should have there own exhaustive adventure.

Overall an excellent game full of atmosphere, gameplay and pure class. Bring on Leons next adventure!!!
