Retrospective: Remembering Resident Evil 4 - AusGamers

With The Evil Within creeping up on gamers, AusGamers took a trip down memory lane for a retrospective look at Resident Evil 4 and writes:

"It’s difficult not to see the game’s influence everywhere you look -- specifically in the third-person space. Everything from the Batman Arkham series to Dead Space and Gears of War borrows from Resident Evil 4. You wouldn’t have had Alan Wake if not for the handsome Leon S. Kennedy’s orders to rescue the President’s kidnapped daughter from the Los Illuminados. You might not have even had the recent Tomb Raider reboot and its graphic depictions of Lara’s death anytime you failed.

Possibly the best reinvention of a franchise to date. I struggle to remember a game that wow'd me from the title screen to the end credits as much as when I purchased this at launch for the brilliant GameCube. I think I completed it roughly 5 times and I rarely replay games.

Such an awesome game. I think I must have played through it 10 times. I remember my friends and I trying to get top scores on mercenaries so we could unlock the hand canon. Great memories!!!!
