Resident Evil 4 HD (Console Edition)
Top Critic Average
Resident Evil 4 is a stone-cold classic, a genre defining game that surpasses expectations even now.
Resident Evil 4 is, and will forever remain, a masterpiece. It says a lot when you can pop in a game over a decade old, and still get as engrossed into everything it has to offer like it was the first time ever experiencing it. If you have somehow still never played this game, put down whatever game(s) you are playing and make room for this survival horror smash. And if you've played it countless times on several platforms, it's still worth forking over a couple of bucks to revisit this legendary game.
Should you buy Resident Evil 4 again? If portable Resident Evil 4 is something you are even mildly wanting, then yes. If you have never owned Resident Evil 4 before, then yes. If water is something you can't live without, then yes. See what I'm trying to say here? Sure, there is nothing new added to the game, but does it really need anything new? This may be the eleventh time that Resident Evil 4 has been re-released, but that's fine. The game still holds up great today and plays perfectly on Nintendo's console, albeit without motion controls.

It’s not often that a game can be re-ported and re-mastered nine different times, but Resident Evil 4 isn’t just any game. In a time of constant remasters and re-releases flooding our current gaming market, Resident Evil 4 stands above the rest as a worthy re-release. If you’re a fan of Resident Evil, I highly recommend revisiting arguably the best game the series has ever offered. If you’ve never played a Resident Evil game before, this is a perfect time and place to jump in.
The overwhelming majority of people who played the game over the years and across all available platforms have made their praise of the game well known. Therefore, I feel comfortable giving this game a high review score. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got ballistics to secure.
A near perfect experience with amazing characters, gameplay and environments dripping with atmosphere, Resident Evil 4 is an absolute blast throughout and this Remaster is only hampered by the awkward controls and the cutscenes for certain parts of the game. Resident Evil 4 reminds us why it is the king of the series and why it deserves the top spot.
Even in 2019, this is still Capcom’s crowning achievement and a master class in game design
What makes Resident Evil 4 such a tense, unnerving and challenging experience is that it isn’t afraid to throw the kitchen sink at you from time to time, nor does it shy away from epic boss fights.
Resident Evil 4 has lost none of its madcap tension, or its considerable charms. This is one of the finest single player campaigns ever, rendered in crisp 1080p on modern consoles.
