In advance of Resident Evil Remake's release next week, the first reviews on the game have surfaced, and it appears that everyone is very satisfied with the remake of the cult horror game. A lot can go wrong when you're remaking one of the greatest games of all time, and even the smallest creative change can have a profound impact on the feelings of fans.
A great deal of attention has been paid by the developers at Capcom to making sure modern visuals are balanced with an improved gameplay experience. The perfect score of Easy Allies will be our first pick out of the multitude of perfect scores that have been posted.
Taking 100 points out of 100, the reviewer says that the combat has been dramatically improved compared to the original, mostly due to the new controls and the fact that there are more dangerous and varied enemies that contribute to the overall experience.
Furthermore, they say that side quests are welcome with a very good risk-to-reward ratio when it comes to side quests. In addition, VGC, with a perfect score, is also impressed with the fact that Capcom managed to maintain the premise, plot and location from the original game, even though all of them have been enhanced.
The RE4 remake does not deviate from the original in terms of style or action, similar to, for instance, the remake of Final Fantasy 7, which, we are sure all of you will agree, is proof of Shinji Mikami's original masterpiece's eternal quality.
Eurogamer and his recommendation
In addition, Eurogamer recommends the game as well. Taking a look at their review, we have highlighted what we believe is of particular interest to all of you. There is a lot less pushiness in Ashley's character than in the original and we couldn't have asked for more.
Having said that, we will single out a review with a slightly worse rating just to satisfy the form. As it stands, Destructoid stands out from the crowd with a score of 75 out of 100 with the biggest complaint being the fact that Leon doesn't have the same jacket as he did in the original. Resident Evil 4 is set to be released on Friday, March 24 as a remake of the original.
