Resident Evil 4 is a remake of the iconic survival horror from 2005. It was developed and published by Capcom.


The story of Resident Evil 4 doesn't differ much from the original release. The main protagonist is Leon S. Kennedy - former Raccoon City police officer, current US Secret Service agent.

He is ordered by the president to find his abducted daughter. All traces lead to a mysterious Spanish village. Once there, Leon finds the town overrun by a cult called Los Illuminados, led by the charismatic Osmund Saddler. As if that wasn't enough, the villagers were infected with parasites called Las Plagas, which turned them into monsters.


Resident Evil 4 is a third-person action game. The player's tasked with exploring various locations and fighting encountered enemies. Leon can make use of a number of varied close-combat techniques and firearms. The developers have included some additional features compared to the original game. One such feature is the ability to parry enemy attacks with a knife, even chainsaw strikes.

The areas are filled with interactive objects which can be used during combat. As an example, shooting a lamp causes a fire, blocking off the enemies' path.

The artificial intelligence also plays a major role in the game. Rather than mindless zombies, we fight Ganados - humans infected with parasites. They're smarter than average horror enemies, can cooperate and coordinate their attacks.

Technical aspects

Resident Evil 4 runs on the RE Engine, its visuals being a massive upgrade compared to the original game from 2005. The characters received new models while the locations were redesigned. The creators also made sure the game retained its iconic atmosphere. The controls have also been adjusted to match the modern standards.
