"Resident Evil 4 is often praised as being one of the best games in the series. I vehemently disagree, and believe it's one of the worst games. Here's why!" - GameRevolution
that crown belongs to 5 or 6 for me. I quite enjoyed 4, even if it strayed away from the "Zombie" aspect with the whole Las Plagas storyline.
Don't you remember the non numbered RE games? They were mostly garbage.
RE Dead Aim and Outbreak and OB File 2, they were garbage. 5 was ok, 6 was a giant turd with clunky controls, bad level design, bad enemy design, bad boss design, cheesy Japanese dialogue and nonsensical story, how anyone could think 4 is anything but the absolute best in level design, enemy design, puzzle and boss design, inventory design, weapon and upgrade design is beyond me. It is the only RE game I can go back to. The rest have aged like milk.
Amazing and revolutionary action game when it came out. Capcom were really on top of their game with this and DMC. but has nothing to do with RE games.. now i am glad RE7 is back to the roots and they finally got the wake up call to give fans something they deserve
Sorry, I wasn't counting the non-numbered entries as those are sort of spin-offs to me. But yet, those are mostly garbage.
Re7 is the best
part 6 by far is the worst.
Imagine hiring this lad to work for your video game site. Not only is Resi 4 objectively a belter from beginning to end, it's part of a series which includes Resident Evil 6. Please don't tell me you actually believe that 6 is a better game than 4?
Article says one hour old. You posted this a day ago. Is this hack at game revolution re posting this rubbish article? It's the journalistic equivalent of a kid smashing a glass for people to notice him.
The time of the article is when it leaves its "pending" status and shows up in the front page. However, even before that happens, you can comment on articles in "pending" status. That's why it's possible for the time on comments be older than the time of the article.
I’m not gonna lie, I’d rather play 6 over 4, but I’m one of those crazy people that loves both.
Resi 4 is by far and away the best Resi game. What is this guy smoking?
Which would make RE 6 a better game by default. This is what you call clickbait. Lol No amount of mental gymnastics will change that fact.
Worse than 6? Yeah okay guy.
But 6 though...
Because you say so
Until 7 I would agree. 4 is not a bad game by any means, to me, it's just a bad RE game. It really should have never been an RE considering the backstory behind it. Funny how things work. Capcom was desperately trying to get away from the original RE style back in the day now they're desperately trying to get back to it. I'd probably rank the RE's like this. 1. RE2 2. RE 3. RE3 4. RE0 5. RE5 ( I'd put the Revelation Series 1&2 here but I'm just gonna stick to the numbered RE's ) 6. RE6 7. RE4 8. RE7
RE7 is by far my absolute favorite in the series so far and i played and finished all of them except for RE0
7 is a masterpiece, in vr anyway.
RE7 on the bottom? How the f*** do you explain that? It litteraly revived the franchise. And it's a bloody amazing game! Definatly in my top 3 horror games of all time!
Because just like 4, it deviated so far away from what RE is suppose to be. There wasn't even one zombie in the entire game. I'd like someone to explain to me how that is staying faithful to the franchise. Not to mention that it didn't have the feel of an RE game whatsoever. Yes, they made horror a priority again but they literally got just about everything else wrong. Not saying it's a terrible game in and of itself, I just think and I believe other long time fans think it's just a terrible RE game.
@jbrock11 I was about to write an essay, but I figured noone would read it lol. I just think that its weird that you rank RE5 and 6 higher than RE7, which yes, they did have zombies (That's a good thing), but they lacked in atmosphere, gameplay and fear. RE7 brought back the "mansion feeling", fear, claustrophobia and that feeling of being helpless. If you played the game you would clearly see that its Resident Evil as it used to be, just with a first person perspective and no zombies. So... when you say they got "everything wrong", it seems like "everything" to you is no zombies.
6 was by far the worst entry.
Nah, it gave capcom wrong ideas*. But it is fun game. *that we like qte, leon becoming jumping and flipping superhero, that we love Ada so much that they just were jerking off to her in 6. 6 is embarrasing
Resident evil 4 remake on next Gen consoles will be awesome because in my opinion the gameplay for the game hasn't aged well with all these remaster Capcom will release RE3 remake than we will get a complete remake for 4th entry which is when they can update gameplay. If you are talking aboit from typical RE series point of view than yes RE4 was more action oriented but I don't think that's a bad thing
It's click bait for sure because they know full well it's not the worst game in the series but they do have some valid points, Resi 4 was cliched as hell and the escort missions were pretty annoying. It did also push the franchise into a direction that it had to saved from by the excellent Resi 7. However taken on its own merit 4 is a great game and a good Resi game. It had rock solid gameplay, superb level design and was a lot of fun to play. It's got its fair share of effective horror in it too even if it does lean towards action.
alright, what is this? clickbait? resident evil 4 may be many things but one of them is that it‘s a cinematic experice that only a few were able to top. the worst in the series is everything higher than resident evil 4. i know this HAS to be clickbait. LOL.
Resi 4 was an amazing reboot of the series. Especially on GameCube.
1. RE 1 2. RE 2 3. RE 4 4. RE 7 5. RE 5 6. RE 6 7. RE 0 Never played 3 so I can’t rank it. The only one I missed even though I’ve played the others multiple times.
Guess they didn't play Resident Evil 6.
What? I thought it was really good.
He is not wrong. I love Resident Evil 4, but it's not a horror game. When I remember previous RE games, I remember how they scared the bejesus out of me when I was a kid. In RE4, Leon was just too overpowered to be scared.
Resident Evil 4 is not only good but one of the best games ever made
And one of the most influential games ever made as well. To me, is by far the best Resident Evil game.
Worse than 6? Mind hooking me up with what you're smoking?
Imagine forgetting that 0, 6, Operation Raccoon City, Dead Aim, and Umbrella Corps came out
7 all day long. Actually aimed at adults.
Gotta have those clicks, eh?
4 is one of the worst but 5 and 6 are defo worse than 4. Then there's some terrible spin off ones...
Have completed Resident Evil 4 11 times. 7 on GameCube and rest on the Wii Edition. Amazing game and def on my top 30 best games of all time I have played!
Its the game the ruined the series...Ive always had a healthy dislike for it since it changed the series from survival horror to action
Ruined the series? RE4 saved the IP. An IP that was stagnant, stale, sales were going down with each passing game and was ready to be buried. That is until Capcom gave the IP back to its creator and did Mikami deliver. RE4 gave the series a much needed breath of fresh air while keeping the most important aspect of the IP: the creepy and tense atmosphere and RE4 was at the time widely considered a masterpiece and one of the best games of all time which btw still is. RE4 saved the IP and the problem with the RE games that came after RE4 was that Mikami wasn't involved with them. The people that were responsible for RE5 and RE6 didn't understand what made RE so great http://v1.escapistmagazine.... and worse, they wanted a piece of the CoD pie. Visceral games on the other hand understood what made RE4 so great and Dead Space was born. A game that plays almost like RE4, widely considered one of the best survival horror games in its own right and often considered the true sequel to RE4. Shame that EA ruined the IP by making the same exact mistakes that Capcom did with RE5 and RE6.
What a pathetic article.
The majority disagrees with you. So your opinion has very little merit.
Resident evil 4 is by far the best resident evil game. It's one of the best overall games ever made.
4 was absolutely awesome for its time, but looking back i do find it a shame that it was a Resident Evil game. It really did push the franchise into an action focus and which led to more and more loss of the survival horror elements. Regardless Resi 4 is till a great game, but i'm so glad for Resi 7 and Resi 2 remake directions.
I know 4 polarises some fans, but the game is fantastic even if you don't like it as an RE game. 6 is by far and away the worst in the series,
@JOHN REETUN stfu
i'd still rather have 4 exist, because it led to Dead Space...
RE4 is one of my top 10 games of all time. None of the other games in the series(though good) make my list. I guess we all have differing opinions. Mercenary mode in RE4 is really good with surprising depth.
4 was fantastic. Now RE 6, that one was terrible.
Code veronica was best for me 👍
Re4 is a bad RE game but it’s still a great game. RE5 and RE6 can’t say that. Both are just awful
Single-handedly destroyed what NO rep GameRevolution (whoever the F that is) had. LOLz
That's a strange way to spell Operation Raccoon City, but alright.
