A Resident Evil 4 Retrospective

With Resident Evil 5 and 6 getting mixed reviews was 4 a peak in the series? Max tackles the game (decapitated) head on. (Culture, GameCube, PS2, Resident Evil 4, Retro)

Resident Evil 4 is amazing and blends together action / horror in the correct way. The atmosphere and tone it sets are quite perfect for the type of game it was trying to be. It was a huge step forward for the series. The series needed a change at the time and I am glad it happened... sort of. I have no issue with Resi4. However, they built on Resident Evil 4 in the wrong way for the sequels. Its funny how its highest point was the beginning of the decline. I still enjoyed Resident Evil 5, though. Hopefully they will look back at Resident Evil 4 and see what made it so great and apply themselves to deliver action / horror in the correct way once again. Hopefully the series will ascend. Resident Evil for the 3DS was a ray of hope. Fingers crossed.

At the time this game amazed me and still does. I succeeded in buying the HD Edition for a reduced price on it's release date due to a pricing error on the Playstation Store. It's a huge shame that the HD edition lacked a Platinum trophy because I've got 100% and after 3 or 4 playthroughs of the HD Edition (plus the abundance of playthroughs I did on the standard Ps2 copy), in wanting more.

Evern though Resi 4 was, and still is a great game that I truely enjoyed, after seeing what was berthed out of it has mad me actually wish it never happened. Though it was a great game, I feel it changed too much of the original spirit of what fans loved so much about the series and as a result, destroyed the series.

It is still one of my favorite games of all time and one of my most replayed games. It was the perfect mix of action and horror. I know fans of the earlier titles didn't like the changes it made, but I feel it was just what the series needed. Now that did come at a cost with what followed 4. But I still hold it in high regards as one of the best games of last generation.
