Summary:

With 30 hours of game play, it’s a bit of a letdown that this version of Resident Evil 4 has a lazy port. Though the game is interactive even during the cut scenes (requires you to do certain actions while talking to the villagers), it is virtually unchanged.

In Resident Evil 4 you are Leon S. Kennedy, a secret agent on a mission to retrieve the US president’s kidnapped daughter. Following the trails, he arrives on a Spanish town with half crazed residents. Leon searches for additional clues that lead you to creepy and abandoned barns, gothic churches, and miserly caves, with each one getting progressively freaky and the enemies get stronger. If you have played Resident Evil 4 on the other consoles and platforms, you will see that it is just a direct transfer of the PS2 version. Adding insult to this great game is that there is no mouse support, no fine tuning the visuals of the game to your preferences.

The PC version of Resident 4 has character models and environments that are greatly designed, obviously created with great regards to detail. Boss monsters and characters get more vulgar and towering as your progress in the game. they did something to the fog though; this important factor to the spook level has been done with, making the game clearer but less evil. You also notice the flaws in the textures, and oh the cut scenes are a nightmare – in a bad way! Rendered directly from the PS2, the compression settings clearly do not do well in this version as they are badly blurred.

Thankfully, the audio had not suffered the same fate. It’s a deliberate spook fest, from the background music to the outstanding weapon effects. Pro-Logic II technology is supported which is great if you use a decent set of speakers.

Resident Evil 4 offers keyboard only controls, which are downright clumsy. You can plug in a game pad to ease up but if you do end up playing with the keyboard, do memorize which key is button 1, which key is button 2, and so on and so forth.

With 30 hours of game play, it’s a bit of a letdown that this version of Resident Evil 4 has a lazy port. Though the game is interactive even during the cut scenes (requires you to do certain actions while talking to the villagers), it is virtually unchanged. Save up money for the game pad or play it on a different console. All said and done it is an above average game and worth playing if you can find the right console to play it on.
