Resident Evil 4 Review

    The Resident Evil 4 remake gets off to a fast start. The most thrilling version of RE4 Capcom has ever given, with updated targeting mechanics and a fresh injection of processing capacity, and Leon Kennedy looks much better than before, even with his new chin implant.

    During the first several hours, the remake works nicely as Leon shoots and slashes his way through the foggy Spanish countryside where Las Plagas has turned the residents into homicidal tentacle monsters. These early sequences, set among crooked wooden structures and the beaches of a winding cave system, set the blood-soaked tone for the game and give a pleasing blend of wealth management, puzzle solving, and contemporary third-person shooting.

    Resident Evil 4 Has A Fresh Look

    When the game’s intricacy increases, it gets clumsy. Capcom’s approach to modernizing RE4 is to introduce more adversaries, cramped surroundings, and fewer ammo drops, which might lead to an intense action game if the controls were consistent. The RE4 remake currently suffers from laggy animations and tedious combat sequences.

    Leon is always underpowered, unable to escape simple assaults or consistently land shots. When Resident Evil 4 was released in 2005, it established a benchmark for action-horror games, and the remake shines whenever it embraces the original’s innovations: over-the-shoulder precise shooting and an environment that blends battle and terror.

    The Resident Evil 4 remake, however, swiftly loses focus, and it appears that much of Capcom’s effort was focused on updating monsters and environments, abandoning Leon in the GameCube-era dust. The RE4 remake adds new monster fights and head-bursting opponents, as well as the ability for Leon to deflect strong strikes. Sometimes. The dodge skill is only accessible if Leon does have a knife ready, and the prompt is easily interrupted by ambient nudges, other adversaries’ actions, and Leon’s own motions. The parry ability, like much of Leon’s moves, is simply too erratic to be satisfactory, and it fails to heighten the suspense of combat sequences.
