This review is from: Resident Evil 4 - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
I haven't been this addicted since Grand Theft Auto III!!
Real Horror, excellent effects, a great story line, great graphics, a whole lot to love!
I've been playing games on the PS2 for awhile now, and some games are good, some are great and some are truly epic. Resident Evil 4 falls into the truly epic category.
Here's why; It's everything from the technical aspect of the camera angle, to the weapon selection and upgrades, to the sound effects and downright creepy sounds and environments that you play in. Too many games mess up the camera angles, to the point where sometimes you actually lose your spot on the screen (which is invariably at that critical time when a bad guy is just about to eat your lunch) not so in Resident Evil 4. The weapon selection is very varied with many upgrades. The sound and graphics combined are enough to stand the hairs on the back of your head on end. Throughout the game when one of the unseen zombies screams you will literally jump out of your chair.
The best part of Resident Evil 4 is the replay value, which is SKY High. In particular "Separate Ways" which puts you in the position of an important supporting cast member as you replay the game through her eyes, its a great twist, which adds a lot to the game.
Lastly, with over 20 hours of gameplay, Resident Evil 4 really delivers. Its a first rate achievement, way to go Capcom!
