Oh, how I’ve missed the golden days of Resident Evil. From the moment I set foot in the Spencer mansion, I’ve been in love with this series, which is why the past few installments have been so hard. Not since 2009’s Resident Evil 5 have we gotten an installment that even felt like an RE game and I don’t look back particularly fondly on Chris Redfield’s adventures in Africa. It was back in 2005, however, that the perfect game in the series stormed onto the Nintendo Gamecube.
Resident Evil 4, regarded by many as the high point of the series, is out on Ps4 and Xbox One today. The release of Leon Kennedy’s adventure to rescue the president’s daughter feels like it’s available on every platform under the sun at this point but I was more than willing to give up $20.00 for another run at Resident Evil’s glory days.
For veterans of the series seeking a bit of nostalgia RE 4 is always worth a play and for newcomers, it’s a chance to experience one of Capcoms best series at its high point before all of that Operation Raccoon City nonsense. At the very least adventuring with Leon should hold us over until Resident Evil 7 launches on January 24th.
Thanks for stopping by to read, through me a follow and let me know what you think. Are you excited to play Resident Evil 4 again or are you burned out on over exposure to this chapter in Capcom’s series?
