Resident Evil 4 is a survival horror that belongs to the famous Resident Evil franchise, different installments of which appeared on many consoles, including Playstation, Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast, Playstation 2, and Nintendo GameCube, as well as PC.

Resident Evil 4 lets you play as a brave and handsome Leon S. Kennedy, whose abilities (not as developed then) we tested in Resident Evil 2. A rookie cop at that time, now an experienced special agent – this is what Leon has become during several years between the two games. This time his job is to free the president’s daughter from the hands of unknown kidnappers living in a mysterious village in Europe. You will encounter many opponents, spearheaded by villagers infected with a strange virus. Apart from them, there are also many tough bosses, whose sizes or unique abilities may make your blood run cold, not to mention the incredible fight in the middle of a murky lake, in which a huge monster is trying to swallow the hero with a single clap of jaws. The game has great level design, from common houses to massive churches and caves.

As compared to the previous Resident Evil games, gameplay went through serious changes. Its slow tempo was replaced with highly dynamic mechanics with spectacular combat and you can now freely move between locations. Situations in which you shoot down several opponents, smash a window to get inside an abandoned house, then barricade the door and climb up to the roof only to fight some more enemies, are quite common. Capcom implemented Quick Time Events in some specific actions, such as jumping through windows or dodging a charging opponent (a similar solution was used in Shenmue – a hit title released on Sega Dreamcast). There are also some puzzles that test the player’s logical thinking.
