Resident Evil 4
No more rotting, plodding zombies; say hello to heart-ripping, insectoid cult members
By now you've probably had your fill of zombie guts. And possibly Resident Evil, too. But forget everything you knew about the series and prepare for the most teeth-cracking, bile-sprayed ride of your life. The tank-like controls and limpy zombies have been replaced by adept, agile cultists that actively hunt your ass down. Running won't cut it anymore. You've got to swim through their bloody ranks to see the end of this evil tale, which has been augmented with several PS2-exclusive nuggets.
The president’s daughter has been kidnapped and it’s up to RE2 veteran Leon Kennedy to save her from the glazy-eyed, monstrous fanatics. You blow a head off and a giant bug erupts from the dangling skull. Say what? Why don't they stay down? Why can they take point-blank shots and keep coming at you? Press on and find out.
And press on you will, as the game's focus has been shifted from flight to fight. Instead of running for the door with your tail between your legs, you’re carving a path straight through the horde with a healthy supply of ammo and plenty of options for dismembering your foes. Knife on a collision course with your face? Shoot it out of the air, or just pop the thug in the arm before he can hurl it at you.
