Hello Fellow Gamers,
This game alone is worth the cost of a Nintendo GameCube, Or PS2, or whatever system. I kid you not, it’s an amazing game, and you should run out and buy it right now. I am talking about Resident Evil 4.
I don’t know anything about Resident Evil outside of this game; it’s the only one I’ve played except for Umbrella Chronicles. But I assume it starts shortly after Resident Evil Three. Leon Kennedy goes to a remote Village in Europe to save Ashley, the President’s daughter. He thinks it will be a walk in, walk out kind of deal. He has no idea what he’s up against.
In this game, you can arm yourself to the teeth, with a huge array of weapons. You buy attaché cases to hold more stuff, the sizes of which are small, medium, large, and extra large, and you can rotate things to fit better. Almost every gun in the game is upgradeable, and you do want to upgrade those guns.
Each and every gun has a laser sight, and you can shoot zombies in key locations to end him or her quicker or slower. Headshots are nearly always instant kills, but are the hardest area to reach due to the fact that Zombies hardly ever stand still, especially as you’re shooting at them. You gotta protect Ashley as you play on through, when you have her around. If she dies or is carried off by zombies, you lose.
This game has epic boss battles, and major bonuses for when you beat the game. You get the professional difficulty mode, two new game modes, two new guns available for purchase, and new costumes for Leon, Ashley, and Ada. One is Mercenaries, a mini game; the other is Assignment Ada, where you collect five samples as Ada. Do this and you unlock the Chicago Typewriter. When you buy this bad boy (for a whopping one million pesos,) you’re holding major fire power, and infinite ammo to boot. When you buy the Infinite Rocket Launcher (one of the guns you unlock when you beat the game), you never need any other gun.
This is by far the best horror survival game that I’ve ever played. The story is long enough to keep you interested, but short enough to not bore you. Most chapters end in some kind of cliff hanger, and the whole thing ends happily, if you win. The music adds to the horror theme, and loads of blood and gore. If you’re REALLY desperate for a major challenge, run through the game on professional mode, using only the pistol. That is worth bragging rights.
This game earns a whopping five out of five.
