But as the number of game releases slows down for the summer (though certainly there are exceptions…I'm looking at you Metal Gear Solid 4), I'm taking the time to revisit some games I've always wanted to play but somehow managed to stack up in my pile of shame. I must say the pile is indeed deep and shameful. To start I'll be visiting several PS2 titles that everyone is certainly familiar with: Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, Final Fantasy XII, Shadow of the Colossus, Resident Evil 4 and Okami. Just a few little known titles that need some extra attention.
To begin my stroll back through time I began with Resident Evil 4. Lately there has been lots of press and excitement about the next iteration, Resident Evil 5, so I wanted to see why I should perhaps be getting more excited for it later this year. Not only that, the game was clearly good enough to warrant a full port over to the Wii after already being ported from the Gamecube to the PS2. To set the stage, I played the game on my PS3 and turned up all the settings in the options menu. So the question is, does Resident Evil 4 still hold up today? Let's find out.
