Resident Evil 4 is far from being a good remastered version for the current generation consoles. Capcom could have done much better.

Resident Evil 4 on Nintendo Switch it's always a masterpiece, and still the same port we have seen on every other platform.

The last episode of the series signed by Shinji Mikami is grabbed and thrown on the digital store of Xbox One and PlayStation 4, substantially unchanged since the previous generation. In the end, this is not a remastered version, but an overpriced old game.

It may not be the definitive version of Resident Evil 4, but it is still a fun one nonetheless.

Resident Evil 4 is fun. It's excellently paced and contains fairly frightening cut-scenes. The characters are paper-thin and their actors ham it up, but it's more about the overall plot, anyway. The soundtrack increases the feeling of dread. It's just a shame so many environments have the same colours and atmosphere. Some enemies become underpowered and aren't as visually scary as they could be. Perhaps worst of all, the encounters become more and more scripted, and the locales more on-rails. As long as enemies' vitals are hit, ammo will pile up, making survival too easy. That said, it's as tense as Resident Evil 5, scarier, well-rounded, and doesn't rely on bullet sponge bosses. It's survival-action with decent horror, and worth a buy to see the series' wasted potential.

Resident Evil 4 remains in a league of its own, but this port dampens the enjoyment with an unwelcome jump in resolution and some odd control issues.

I’m a die-hard fan of the game and have loved jumping back in to Resident Evil 4. I have a feeling others who feel the same about the franchise will as well, as will Achievement and Trophy addicts, enticed over reasonable simple lists. For everyone else, it’s a harder sell at $24.95 AUD — while greatly improved over last-gen’s release, it’s still the same game on yet another platform.

As the game's iconic merchant might say, buy at your own discretion, especially when there are "a lot of good things on sale" elsewhere on the Nintendo eShop.

Resident Evil 4 on the Switch is the same cult game that redefined horror games, almost to a fault. While still enjoyable, it does show its age with no improvements on its stale control scheme.
