Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
Welcome back to the world of survival horror… as you’ve never seen it before. Probably the most ambitious revamp of a series ever seen this neither looks nor plays like any Resident Evil game before it. Gone are in dodgy camera angles of yore and in comes all action third person adventure action with stunning graphics and set pieces.

The lowdown:
Charged with rescuing the president’s daughter from a mysterious Spanish cult, you control Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil 2. Although series regulars like the green health herbs and rubbish dialogue are present almost everything else has changed: there's a completely new 3D environment, few puzzles, no magic chests and not a single repeated monster from the old games. Instead you face a series of supremely cinematic set pieces and boss battles, including an escape from a village filled with Texas Chainsaw Massacre extras. As the Black Eyed Peas once remarked, "pick up your range of deeply unpleasant biological weapons and let's get retarded."

Most exciting moment:
The frantic siege from the villagers in the abandoned cottage has got Evil Dead beat easy.

Since you ask:
Resident Evil 4 won four awards at this year’s Golden Joysticks event, including Editor’s Game of the Year.

The bottom line:
The best game of the year and one of the best action games of all time.
Harrison Dent

Leon's girlfriend was not impressed with her Christmas bondage gear Is it just us, or is there the face of an old man (God?!) hidden in the rocks?
Survival horror faux pas no.256: wearing leather in a hardcore vegan community. Would look cooler if he held the gun at a 90 degree angle, like Ice Cube in Friday

I guess the Resident Evil series has always had the cinematic horror area of the market cornered. And RE4 far from giving the usual evolution over revolution supplied by previous titles such as the, admittedly brilliant, Code Veronica X and Resident Evil Zero, totally sets fire to the rule book and kicks it out the window. I think that for the first time in the series the emphasis has shifted away from beautiful looking, largely un-interactive environments to bleak, grimy-looking full 3D environments where fast-paced combat, stylish gun-play and interactive set-pieces are the name of the game. The slow burning mystery element of the Resident Evil puzzles of old is gone replaced with much more simple and direct switch, key and lock based set of problems. Where the meat of the older games lay in solving, often complex problems RE4 requires the player to use movement and interaction with the environment to outgun your numerous opponents and move rapidly through the landscape. Ammunition and healing items are plentiful and the inclusion of a weird cockney (!) merchant who appears with almost supernatural regularity to buy and sell weapons is a very nice touch. Where the game really wins through is not with the emphasis on action but on the brilliant script and story. Sure, the dialogue is still cheesy as hell. After all this is Resident Evil. But miniscule loading times and brief, seamlessly blended cut scenes make the whole thing feel more like an interactive horror film than any previous game of its kind. The cut-scenes are also expertly blended with numerous insanely thrilling set-pieces and boss encounters.Read more ›

This is one of the best games I have ever played on the PS2. I've played all the Resident Evil games which are all very good, but this is by far the best. This game was a christmas present and I have to be honest and say that I am still playing it and it's now the end of April!!

The game has a main story mode where you play the character Leon and you have to rescue the president's daughter, Ashley who joins you along the way. You also have to protect her at times which can make things interesting. You get to kill some very varied and challenging enemies along the way and the bosses all require different strategies to kill them.

What is good about this game is that there are many strategies you can use to complete the game, making each playthrough different. There are also 3 game modes available - easy, normal and professional.

You also get 3 side games - Assignent Ada (Mini Mission), Seperate Ways (Relates to the main story) and Mercenaries (Get high scores within a time limit) which are also all brillinat.

The game has excellent replay value as completeing the game/side games unlocks extra weapons and costumes. You can also carry weapons etc over to a new game.

This game is a MUST HAVE for any collection.

This is an exceptional game. Even if you are not a fan of the series i advise you to get this game now because it is a total departure.
Ive only played the first chapter and already there are shocks surprises and story twists applenty (a few moments of sheer panic). Make it to the first Boss battle and this game will hook you and not let go.
Happy gaming alround

I do not normally enjoy this type of game, but owing to the glittering reviews Resident Evil 4 received, I felt I would give it a go. Resident Evil 4 turns everything about the series on its head and vastly improves every aspect of it - from the graphics and sound to fundamental gameplay mechanics.

Resident Evil 4 is a BIG game. Not particularly in its length, which, at roughly 20 hours clocked time (but much longer when you take into account how often you die and have to re-start an area!) isn't too shabby, but in this scope and ambition. This is near cinematic-quality, and is certainly the most involving and thrilling game I have ever played. The games graphics are perhaps its strongest selling point, and to the untrained eye, mine included, could possibly appear to be even so -called `next-gen' in quality. The amount of detail is astounding, and everything is made up of pixels, with not a pre-rendered background in sight. Atmosphere is everything, from the dark and dingy surroundings, with fog and damp you can almost touch, to the eerie soundtrack and sound effects, including gentle breezes, harsh downpours, and even the firing of the weapon you are using. The animation is fantastic, and everything feels like it could just be real, which makes it all the more unsettling. The three main environments in Resident Evil 4 range from a village, a huge castle, and island fortress, although it is surprisingly well-varied, incorporating laboratories, mines, sewers, lakes and even lava pits.

The story is not particularly complex, but is very neatly executed, and leaves the door to a sequel wide open. Basically, you play as Leon S.
