Each of the Resident Evil remakes so far have been great. Plus, it has been awesome to go back and revisit stories that I haven’t been part of in a long while. The remake for Resident Evil 2 was a real treat. But, Resident Evil 4 looks to be improving quite a bit and looks to be just as incredible as Resident Evil 2’s remake.
RE4 was the first game to move into third-person mode and took things in a much more adventure direction. While it did keep a lot of the survival horror elements that made the first games so great, it did diverge just a bit. The remake of RE4 is said to take things back to a much more survival horror oriented direction.
The synopsis for Resident Evil 4 Goes like this:
Resident Evil 4 joins Leon S. Kennedy six years after his hellish experiences in the biological disaster of Raccoon City. His unmatched resolve caused him to be recruited as an agent reporting directly to the president of the United States. With the experience of multiple missions on his back, Leon is dispatched to rescue the president’s recently kidnapped daughter. Leon tracks her to a secluded European village, however after making first contact he discovers a fervor beyond reason grips the local populace.
Resident Evil 4 arrives on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam on March 24, 2023.
