The Resident Evil 4 remake is the series’ most relentlessly exciting adventure rebuilt, refined, and realized to the full extent of its enormous potential.

Keeping what works while reimagining what doesn’t, this is about as good as remakes get.

Capcom raises the bar for what a good remake is and simultaneously preserves Resident Evil 4’s legacy as a genre-defining experience and one of the greatest games of all time.
