so non-spoiler impressions? Minus sequels of joy

I was looking forward to it, hoping it'd be playable for me, but:

Bringing both gameplay types together is a control scheme that for the most part remains disappointingly unchanged from previous Resident Evil games. Kennedy is manipulated minus true analog control.


I tried playing previous Resident Evil games, but I simply could not get used to that moronic control scheme. Frustrating. The game looks beautiful, though; the Gamecube needs more games like this.

I just wish I had any desire to play it now. Darn you, Capcom!

I don't know what the reviewer meant by that. I am halfway through RE4 now, and the control scheme isn't like the previous games. In fact, I think that is probably the most fundamental improvement I've noticed so far. The graphics are good of course, but they were just as good for the RE remake on Gamecube, and RE-0. The story is also a great break-off. The only complaint I have is that its not a puzzle game anymore, not really. <_<

It's a fantastic game.

Very Cinematic, and quite challenging. Even though it has an "action" setup, it plays VERY much like a standard Survival Horror game.

I find it odd you can buy guns but not ammo :)

Ammo seems to grow on trees, but health is pretty scarce. ;)

Overall it has a really good flow of events and is "definately" a Resident Evil game :)

Actually the controls are the same, it's just with the new camera angle it seems different.

I'm on chapter 3 in Resident Evil 4 and thus far the game has lived up to the praises. Great music, atomosphere. I haven't had any problems with the new camera angle either. Leon's character isn't overdone, he is actually pretty believable.

Someone mentioned Silent Hill being better? Its hard to compare considering Resident Evil is in-your-face action/gore and Silent Hill is psychological horror. I'm a fan of both so you know.

Well I'm probably getting this game, I liked Resident Evil 1/2/3, so this should be great.

I'm not surprised it got such a high score by "IGN", supposedly it has a lot of advanced functions, they've really improved upon the average Resident Evil game.

No, not a cliffhanger... but a LOT of foreshadowing... plus more if you play the Assignment Ada minigame (which is like a sidequest more than a minigame)

In fact, for ten bucks, you too can score a 9.8 on IGN.

Of course, in order to get the score, they will have first crack at "reviewing" you.

I've been waiting my whole life for this game. Seen all the movies, played all the games, bought the T-Shirt which scares 5 year olds. Now is the time for a real challenge.

I did get kinda obsessive with it :)

I blame Mikami, seeing as it took him 4 years to make it :wacko:

Took me, like, 35 hours to finish :)

were the in-game graphics good? the stuff they show in the tv commercials look like cutscene-type video, so im curious about how good the actual gameplay graphics are.

There are no cutscene graphics in RE4.... those are the real graphics all the time... and they're used in the cutscenes as is (w00t)
