The review embargo for Resident Evil 4 Remake has been lifted, and various media outlets have shared their thoughts on Capcom’s latest title.
Across the board, the game is receiving highly positive reviews, and a number of outlets have given the game a 10/10 score. Looking at the scores, Resident Evil 4 Remake is another successful remake and has joined the highest-rated games of 2023.
A few of the review scores can be seen below
- VGC 5/5
- IGN 10/10
- Gamespot 10/10
- Destructoid 7.5/10
- Dualshockers 7/10
Reviews have praised Capcom’s work on modernizing the classic horror game. Critics have pointed out that Resident Evil 4, despite its innovations, has not aged too well nearly two decades later.
However, the latest release brings everything up to par with modern standards, featuring controls and gameplay mechanics that fans have experienced in previous Resident Evil games released in a similar time frame.
In terms of visuals, Resident Evil 4 Remake does not disappoint. The RE engine delivers yet another jaw-dropping experience, adding to the tense atmosphere that the franchise is known for.
Resident Evil 4 Remake has now become the third-best-rated Metacritic game of 2023. Falling slightly behind classics like The Witcher 3 and Metroid Prime Remastered, the game has earned a commendable score of 93/100 on Metacritic.
Despite its positives, the game is not perfect. Reports have claimed that review copies have not fixed responsiveness issues found in the Xbox version, and the visual problems from the demo have also carried over to the PS5 version.
This might be fixed with a day-one patch for the official release, but that remains to be seen.
Resident Evil 4 is the third remake so far that has received an overwhelmingly positive reception. Previously, Metroid Prime and Dead Space were seen as shining examples of revitalizing a classic with the power of modern hardware, and Capcom has continued this trend.
