Resident Evil 4 is an absolute banger in every way. I have not played the 2005 version but compared to the recent reboots, RE4 manages to spook and thrill you in the most entertaining fashion.
Resident Evil 4 strikes the perfect balance of horror and action. It’s as if Capcom applied everything they learned from the previous games and chiseled this into a masterpiece. You will find yourself scavenging around its beautifully designed sections on the map, scampering through hordes of enemies to get some breathing room, feeding bullets to mind-controlled enemies and occasionally getting pushed into dark and dingy spaces that recall the horrific claustrophobia from recent remakes. There’s never a dull moment with this game.
