Resident Evil 4
 
Story:

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIlfGDZg-bc&feature=related"]YouTube- Broadcast Yourself.[/ame]


Six years have passed since the infamous Raccon City incident and Umbrella Corporation's
downfall. Now retired cop-now secret service agent Leon S. Kennedy is sent on a mission
to rescue Ashley Graham, the President's daughter, from a local Spanish cult called
"Los Illuminados" or "The Enlightened" in spanish.

At first everything is to plan, until Leon is attacked by local villagers who all seem to
be affected by a disease. After Leon rescues Dr. Luis Sera, it is revealed both he and
Ashley have been infected by "Las Plagas", the same disease the villagers are
infected with and if they hatch in their bodies they'll be under the cult's control, and
giving them access to the President himself.

Gameplay:

Resident Evil 4 plays different from previous Resident Evil titles, the game sports a
new over-the-shoulder view verses the set angle look of the other titles bring new
depth to gameplay such as targeting various parts of the body on the enemies.
It may case them to stager or drop their weapons.

A new feature is the merchant, who allows you to purchase new weapons or
upgrades for your existing weapons and equipment using the money you amass
throughout the plot.

He also provides you with the sharpshooter minigame, a simple way to kill time for
collectables to be seen later.

The merchant's awkward dialogue has become infamous among gamers,
just look at what happens if you do it in real life:

I'd wear that for halloween.

Another major change in the series is the use of quick time events, where you must
input a command in a quick period to prevent injury or death:

One place Resident Evil 4 delivers is the epic boss fights they're all intense and at
the same time entertaining, each looking as grotesque as ever:

After you complete the story mode, Mercenaries mode is unlocked allowing you to
unlock new weapons and upgrades for the campaign.

If you own the PS2, Wii, or PC version "Seperate Ways" will be unlocked as well, which details the story of Ada Wong during the story line.

Graphics:

Capcom really outdid themselves with Resident Evil 4, the graphics are outstanding
with each character having unique atires and weaponry.

The castle itself has very unique environments which look amazing for the Gamecube.

Sound:

The songs in Resident Evil 4 are Resident Evil standard, they can't stand on their
own, but with the rich combat it blends very nicely.

Overall:

This game is an Essential if you own either a Gamecube, Wii, or Playstation 2.
There are little to no flaws in any department and there's a reason in Nintendo Power's
Top 200 games, it scored second behind Ocarina of Time.

9.8/10

Nice explanation of the game, but to make it interesting, back it up with statements why something is a certain way. Add some interesting observations and insights into the game, put yourself into the review explaining why SJB likes this, or why SJB hates something else. What were some stupid frustrations for SJB about the story of the game, or the controls.

So, you honestly made a good review, but it's kind of only got the definition part down, you need these other vital aspects and minor aspects to build around a good review.

Thanks for the tip, I'll do that for my next review.

Nice review for a nice game.

Good review I wouldn't change a thing.

Don't worry about what Cameron thinks, that's just his opinion. Sometimes less is more and not all reviews need a personal account of how the game made you feel. Honestly if you added more it would probably be too long and obnoxious for some people.

Hated this game.

Why is the rating 4.8/10 if you like the game? Don't you mean 9.8?

samejamesbond 02-16-2010 07:07 PM

Re: Resident Evil 4
 
Thanks, I didn't notice that.

Edit: I guess my review isn't that good if it got lowly ranked...

There is a separate Wii version?

Yeah, it's the best version.

Better than GameCube?
I only played it a couple of times, but it was great.

Hey, now I want the Wii Resident Evil. I got into the game by playing Gaiden for GBC.

Aiming with IR is certainly better. It's a great action game.

Re: Resident Evil 4
 
So, I see. I want to play 4 so bad right now, but the only friend I have who owns it doesn't come over anymore.

Re: Resident Evil 4
 
You could always purchase it yourself.

fenrir1887 03-01-2010 01:07 PM

Re: Resident Evil 4
 
We've been strapped for some time. Hard to get the game and not have the money to do so. Still, I should save up and get it anyway.
