Resident Evil 4 PC
on 28 June 2013
Perhaps the best of the modern RE games. I originally played RE4 on the Gamecube and am now enjoying it all over again on the PC. The game has been ported to the PC well and any fears of camera angle problems have been quashed. This is not a game for the keyboard and mouse though. The standard PC controls are horrible. This is a game that is best played using a controller. I am using the XBOX 360 from Microsoft and it is proving to be perfect for RE4. It is "Plug and Play" and installed on my PC in literally seconds.
Ironically, it was Resident Evil 6 for the PC that reminded me of the great time I had playing RE4 on the Gamecube. I played RE6 which was great compared to the dreadful Raccoon City. I also played RE: Revelations on PC, which was OK, but a very ugly game and not as good as RE6.
I have Resident Evil 5 to play on PC still but for some reason that game just hasn't grabbed me, despite me starting to play it at least half a dozen times.
Overall, I think Resident Evil 4 is the best of the bunch. If you like Survival Horror games on the PC, then don't pass up the chance to play RE4. It may not be the best looking game due to its age, but the graphics are passable and the atmosphere and immersion that oozes from the game soon makes you forget about such trivial cosmetics.
