Resident Evil 4 Remake: Why Capcom’s Masterpiece Deserves A Generous Review

Resident Evil 4 Remake: Why Capcom’s Masterpiece Deserves A Generous Review

Resident Evil 4 was revolutionary when it was released in 2005. It is still considered by many to be the pinnacle of the franchise and remains legendary for its transformative impact on the action-survival-horror genres. Resident Evil 4 is arguably as important in shaping the shape of modern games as DOOM, Grand Theft Auto 3, and Super Mario 64 before it. Perhaps that’s why corners of social media are now debating whether Resident Evil 4 Remake is of any value. Here’s my take: Resident Evil 4 is undoubtedly a masterpiece, but it still deserves a generous reimagining for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X.

It’s easy to overlook how far the video game industry has come in 17 years. If you were to view it purely through a prism of nostalgia, it’s even easier to believe that the action, horror, and shooter genres haven’t made significant strides beyond the achievements of Resident Evil 4.
