Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition Review – Frightfully Good I The Koalition

Asad Quadri of The Koalition writes:
Resident Evil 4 has been a rather polarizing entry in the Resident Evil franchise. Fans of the games released prior to the 4th game saw it as a departure from the traditional gameplay style of survival horror, where you character would face huge, intimidating environments which looked very familiar but had an eerie, unfamiliar feeling to it also. (PC, Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition) 80/100

Just give it full score. This game changed gaming as we saw it.

it deserves no score, it ruined the RE franchise, with the action genre instead of continuing with the survival horror theme

This game didn't ruin it. It had a fine balance. The emphasis on action in later games was just Capcom being Capcom and screwing everything up.

@Nerdmaster

What you talking about there a lot of reasons why it lost the survival horror aspect and went into the action based aspect

but unlike the originals, you had unlimited saves (unlike the old ones where you only had so many), you could buy your weapons (unlike the old ones where you had to find your weapons), you could buy health, you could see around every corner (unlike the old view where you couldn't see around every corner), you could upgrade your weapons (IE bigger magazine size, more damage etc) QTE's (they where annoying and made it more action based) the feeling of the creepy atmosphere was lost, the loss of t-virus etc, the lack of proper zombies, zombie dogs, hunters, etc.
