    Crappy port; avoid at all costs.

    This is going to be an unfair and short review. To cut to the chase: I am absolutely appalled at the "quality" of this game. Even releasing a game for the PC without a mouse control should be qualified as a crime und... Read Full Review

    Of all the Resident Evil games in the series, RE4 is my favorite modern one. Unlike the other modern ones, such as RE5, REORC, or RE6, RE4 offers challenges throughout the entire game. The game keeps at the edge of your ... Read Full Review
