Trivia

The earliest version of the game was announced for the PlayStation 2 under Resident Evil 2 (1998) (Resident Evil 2) director Hideki Kamiya. This build was eventually cancelled as a Resident Evil installment and became the title known as Devil May Cry (2001). Eventually, development was moved to the GameCube console and another build emerged. This was the first version to feature Leon from RE2. The first version shown had Leon sporting a variation of his current costume and fighting a mist-like virus. The second shown version's showed one bad guy in particular that sported a hook on one of its hands, and the logo for the game reflected this (this can still be seen in the final logo). One more version was created and cancelled before Shinji Mikami took over and transformed the title into what it is today. Of all the builds developed, only one of them was never unveiled to the public (it was the one that was being worked on right before Mikami took over). In Japan, an exclusive DVD bonus disc included with the game has footage from the second version that was made. See more »

Goofs

If you're playing the Gamecube version with alternative uniforms (Leon wears his classic Raccoon city Police Department uniform, Ashley wears white pants and a midriff-exposing top) During the knife fight between Leon and Krauser, Ada stops the fight, and krauser says "Well, if it isn't the bitch in the red dress?" when Ada is wearing her Alternative suit, which looks nothing like a red dress.

Serious Contender for Game Of The Year
7 February 2005 | by (North Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

I always loved the idea of the Resident Evil games, the settings, the story lines and the atmosphere, but the games were getting repetitive, and simply the control system was plain annoying, you never truly felt involved.

I knew Resident Evil 4 was going to be a change, but what a change, if there has ever been a comeback for a gaming series then this is it. I don't care about people saying, oh there are no zombies etc.. all i know is the enemies in this game are simply better, and a whole lot of fun to fight against, the control system is a revelation, making perfect use of the control pad in what is essentially an FPS. The enemies have amazing AI, wherever you can go, they can, you will feel like you're fighting them for real, their animations are astounding, shoot them in the leg, they react exactly how would expect them to. The weapons are so satisfying, you will get such a buzz from using them.

The graphics -- i've been upgrading my PC to super levels to play Half Life 2 etc.. graphics that will blow your face away, who would have thought the Gamecube could give a visual experience to rival anything on the PC.. these are the best console graphics ever, at times you feel like you're playing an FMV, i'm being serious. The art design of this game is something only the Japanese game makers could do, there is more visual invention than any movie.

i don't normally like scary games, but this game was just too fun to miss out on, there are moments when you will get your heart beating, for once there is a real feeling of survival horror, the concept of Resident Evil has finally been fulfilled.

my only complaint is maybe the game is too short, well 20 hrs isn't short just right for this type of game, and well it was just so addictive i couldn't put it down, so really it isn't a short game, but you're having such a great time it just flies by.. even still Capcom have added some bonus games, that are actually worth your time, and will add a few more hours to it all.. i'd say a healthy 30hrs is there.

anyway -- unmissable, simply amazing. the Gamecube has few titles, but the ones that shine, really take some beating.. and although it will be coming out on the PS2 at the end of this year, Res Evil 4, is yet another strong reason for getting a Cube. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED 9.7/10
