Resident Evil 4 VR Reviews
Resident Evil 4 VR - The Mercenaries is the original classic mode (complete with all five characters and four maps) rebuilt entirely for VR.
Enter the era of action horror like never before as Resident Evil 4 reinvents one of the most beloved games of all time
Resident Evil 4 VR is a breath of fresh air for one of the most ported entries in Capcom's long-running series. While the game is missing modes like Separate Ways or The Mercenaries, Armature has crafted one of the best versions of Resident Evil 4 to date.
Capcom's survival horror classic shines on Oculus Quest 2, making it a must play version for fans that can.
Still, you’re getting the entire campaign, and that’s an important thing to circle back on. You know how the Wii version came out, and pointer use changed the way you played an already fantastic game? It’s like that all over again, but on a bigger scale. At this point I want all of the Resident Evil games to get this treatment. Hell, bring Dino Crisis back like this, so I can look backward and see a T-Rex running at me while hoofing it. Port Onimusha and add real-time swordplay. The sky is the limit!
One of the biggest survival horror hits find new home on Oculus Quest, adapting its core mechanics to the VR playground and achieving great success and bringing new emotions to the formula. It's not perfect, but playing it on Oculus Quest it's a completely new experience that any RE fan should try.

Resident Evil 4 VR is one of the most surprising delights of my entire year. Every part of the base game is here, and it all fits and feels right. Every bit of the schlock, fear, and intensity is joined by a well-thought-out array of VR gunplay, puzzle-solving, melee, and other satisfying interactions. Resident Evil 4 is one of the absolute high points of the entire franchise. This is a full-on adaptation of it with nothing left out. If you weren’t cool with the narrative, scares, or schlock before, this probably won’t change your mind. But if it was the controls bothered you, this is easily the best and most enjoyable version of Resident Evil 4 to ever come out.
Resident Evil 4 VR succeeds in making a 16-year-old gaming experience feel completely brand new and delivers Oculus Quest 2 its first killer app.
Overall, the transition of Resident Evil 4 to VR is a triumphant affair. Seeing iconic locations brought to full-scale VR life is not only a wonderful nostalgia blast but the conversion injects new life into arguably the best Resident Evil game. Fighting off the hordes of Ganados of Pueblo and the other villains of the Los Illuminados, as they get right in your face, is a gaming treat all players should experience.
Resident Evil 4 VR is a near-perfect way to revisit the survival horror classic, thanks to Oculus taking every measure for a truly immersive day in Leon's life.
Resident Evil 4 VR is a triumph for the platform. This game is often put on a pedestal and so when I say that this is the definitive way to play this classic, I don’t say it lightly. Legacy issues like escort missions and the inevitable immersion-breaking cutscenes aside, this is not only one of the best games on the Quest 2, but one of the best virtual reality games I have ever played.
More than just a fantastic killer app for the Oculus Quest 2, Resident Evil 4 VR is a killer app for virtual reality in general. Unlike Half-Life Alyx, this is a phenomenal shooter available on the cheapest, most readily available, and most comfortable VR system in the market. It features everything you have always loved from Resident Evil 4, but in a brand new perspective that turns what was already fun and immersive into something even more intense and memorable.
Resident Evil 4 is one of the most popular video games. Moving it into VR just works. Because the game is roughly 16 years old it works quite well on the stand-alone Meta Quest 2 headset. They have changed several of the components to make you feel very immersed in the VR world and become Leon. You get at least 14 hours of gameplay!
RE4VR is an absolute blast. The perspective shift from third to first-person and the ability to freely run around during combat fundamentally altered how I play one of my favorite games
Resident Evil 4 VR is no lazy port, and genuinely adds another dimension to what many consider to be the best game in the series.
Resident Evil 4 VR is a new (and at times exhilarating) way to relive a classic from 16 years ago with all that VR can bring to a first-person action-horror.

Once upon a time there was a survival horror that stood out, at the same time, as a masterpiece and a model that would be the cornerstone of the new shooter-like spirit of the series. Once upon a time but also in this very day, again, with Resident Evil 4 VR, virtual reality port not perfect, but very enjoyable.

Resident Evil once again proves the perfect showcase for VR, with Capcom's aging classic working surprisingly well in first person – in what may be the definitive version on a modern format.
Resident Evil 4 is a fantastic game no matter what you play it on, but the jump to VR has a few issues. The controls feel good in a vacuum, but certain options will make the game exponentially harder. If you're someone who doesn't get sick in VR, this is one of the best titles on the platform. If you do get sick, however, stick with the 2D versions.
From this umpteenth revival of Resident Evil 4, despite all the good that one may think, we did not expect much. Well! we didn't see it coming, but Armature managed a very nice VR adaptation of Capcom's classic.
