Keep in mind Resident Evil 4’s authentic GameCube case? The one which mentioned “Solely For” within the nook? It is arduous to think about now, contemplating the sport has been ported each which manner, to the Nokia telephone and again. However regardless of its acclaimed standing, all its ports, and the modest visible facelift it has acquired through the years, one factor stays woefully unchanged and firmly cements Resident Evil 4 in 2005 when it was initially launched: these damned tank controls. Even the Wii Version (the most effective port of the sport, I have to say) was shackled by its inflexible motion. That’s, till Resident Evil 4 VR, which presents the sport in its greatest gentle since its authentic launch.
Enjoying via the action-horror traditional on the Oculus Quest 2 has given me a sense I’ve wished since first ending RE4 16 years in the past on the GameCube: the sense of experiencing it for the primary time another time. And that feeling is downright superior.
From the bottom up, the sport has been meticulously recreated in Unreal Engine 4 in uncanny element to totally operate in VR, and the result’s so spectacular; it is nothing in need of magic. From upscaled textures, to sound results, and animations, RE4 can now be seen–quite literally–through a wholly new lens. Entering into the footwear of protagonist and fairly boy Leon S. Kennedy on a mission to avoid wasting the president’s daughter has by no means felt cooler, nor has the horror illustration of japanese Europe ever felt extra horrifying.
