Resident Evil 4 Remake Hailed One of Best Games Ever According to Early Reviews

Resident Evil 4 Remake could be a role model for developers looking to refresh their classic titles. According to the first reviews, the new-old horror game from Capcom is performing brilliantly.

After the excellent remake of Dead Space debuted on the market earlier this year, one might have thought that it would be a long time before anyone could match Electronic Arts' work in terms of quality. Meanwhile, less than two months later, the gauntlet was picked up by Capcom, in the form of Resident Evil 4 Remake. Such conclusions can be drawn after reading the first reviews.

At the time of writing this news on Opencritic average rating of Resident Evil 4 Remake given by industry professionals is an impressive 93/100 (based on 70 reviews). On Metacritic the PlayStation 5 version of the refreshed version of the iconic horror game also earned a rating of 93/100 (based on 85 reviews).

According to reviewers Resident Evil 4 is an example of a near-perfect remake. While retaining the spirit of the original, Capcom has tweaked the weaker elements (of which there were few, by the way), thus elevating the game to new gaming heights. The improvement was primarily in combat, where enemies gained a little more spunk over the years..

Critics also praise the beautiful visuals, which are in no way inferior to today's standards. A curiosity are new elements, enriching the well-known story. As a result, the horror should appeal to both fans of the original and people who are just beginning their adventure with the series.

One critic even noted that Resident Evil 4 Remake could be one of the top contenders for the 2023 Game of the Year award. Considering the considerable competition this year, such a statement alone speaks a lot.

Finally, let us remind you that the full version of Resident Evil 4 Remake will debut on March 24, on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Xbox Series X/S. You can still play the demo.
