Resident Evil 4 Question

Is resident evil 4 easier on gc or ps2?
It depends on personal preference, really - I prefer the GC version as I feel they controller's layout's more intuitive, but that's just me. The PS2 version's second alternate costume set does change gameplay, however, as Ashley is essentially invulnerable, if you're into replaying the game.
Gamecube is easyer.
Wii is the easiest.
If you have a wii buy it it has seprate ways,assinment ada,leons rpd outfit and 3rd outfit or his suit what im saying is it has all the ps2 extras.
The Gamecube version is generally said to have easier and more fluid controls. However, it also can have more enemies on screen at once. I'm not sure if that means the gamecube will put you up against more enemies or if it will just lag on the PS2, though.
@Iketherlord3 The game gamecube version has the same enemies etc as the ps2 version...no more...no less...the gamecube version has slightly smoother gameplay and graphics...the ps2 version has more content....the wii version has both..
WEell, overall, the ps2 version is easiest. Due t the factm, there is less enemies, and more ammo. The cabin scene in the gamcube version, is way harder then the ps2 version.
The PS2 version is easier because certain weapons, when fully upgraded, will have higher firepower than their GCN counterparts (The GCN Rifle has a maximum firepower of 18, the PS2's is 30. There are several other examples.) On subsequent playthroughs, the PS2 version also has an unlockable costume that makes your partner character invincible, making the game easier still.
The Gamecube version has smoother controls and doesn't lag as much. And it also has a few more little features after you beat the game than the PS2 version. So the GC version is the recommended one, though there aren't any big differences.
If you are playing professional, then I'll say the gamecube version b/c in the PS2/Wii version, you can't buy the tactical vest.
Four weapons in the PS2 version are more powerful, and two weapons are less expensive than the GCN's version of weapons. The non PAL GCN version is the hardest version of the game I believe. The Wii version is the easiest.
I would say gamecube, as the controller layout is superior to PS2, however, with the PS2 you can get the P.P.L 72 of whatever its called.I personally would choose the Gamecube version, but the choice is up to you. >_>
It's hit or miss with the difficulty. On the PS2, the quicktime events are more easily handled thanks to the button layout for beginners, but getting used to the overall control scheme will be a tad tough.
The Gamecube's control scheme is much easier to handle, and it's far superior, in my opinion.
Also: the difficulty levels themselves aren't tampered with between versions. What I've HEARD is this:
When you die, the game registers this into your death count. The higher your count, the easier the enemies and bosses will be. Same goes for the opposite; if you don't die very often at all, the game progressively gets harder as normal.
Also also: The Wii Version is reportedly much easier due to the aiming controls.
The PS2 version is actually significantly easier than the GC version. Not only are the weapons more powerful and cheaper to upgrade but many of the sections actually have less enemies to fight. In my opinion, the PS2 version feels more balanced. The GC game is brutal. But not all the weapons were buffed, the standard rifle shoots slower in the PS2 version. They just did a lot of balancing is all. The Wii version uses the gamecube game (better graphics and lighting and more enemies) but uses the PS2's weapon balancing. Whats really odd is that the new HD versions use the gamecubes improved lighting, the balanced PS2 weapons but they use the PS2 amount of enemies.
I've played RE4 on ps2 about 60 times ! Had everything possible ! Now i'm finished with the re-release HD on ps3, witch is ported from nintendo gamecube. Beleave me, there are differances !The gamecube port is harder on pro mode, but buy useing the knife ,rather than wasting ammo, you'll get through it. I liked the cube port more, and you get all the ps2 extras on the HD download. Biggest bang for money. And , yes , it's my fav. game ever ! Over 65 playthrough's now..... zomiehunter .
Between the two, PS2 seems easier because of all the content variables, such as unlockable content, game mechanics, even though the game has better graphics on GameCube. Nothing beats the PC graphics, and the Wii has the best aiming, but between the two, PS2 is better.
The gamecube one is easier just because of the controller being made to play the game in the first place.
This is ONE of the true answers. The Gamecube version is a lot easier beacase it has a lot more ammo.
