I wouldn't call RE4 (yes, I'm American) a "survival horror" game by any stretch. I always thought that particular analysis of it was backwards. What it is is an action game with characters tangentially related to the previous games and was intended to be a departure from the previous entries in the series. Also, if Capcom had insisted on not changing the formula at all the franchise would have stagnated and we all would have grown bored with it, I assure you.uzo said:Biohazard 4.
Sure .. it's fun enough. But is it really THAT good? And it didn't so much 'redefine' survival horror as throw it out the fucking window. After the first scene (approaching the town on foot), it feels like godamn John Cleese appeared and said 'and now for something completely different.'
What in the hell happened to Biohazard, Capcom ??! I want it BACK.
EDIT: And wow .. RDR? Really? I thought it was fabbo.
RE4 is a good game meant to be played, not really thought about. It doesn't cover any new ground, it doesn't "give Resident Evil/Biohazard a bad name" it just was something a little different.
