With The Evil Within bearing down on unsuspecting gamers in just under two months time, we decided to take a look at Shinji Mikami's most critically acclaimed work -- Resident Evil 4.

This retrospective look at the game isn't merely a case of timing, it's also an important reminder about how big-budget Triple-A games can change the landscape for the better by leading by example, taking the right risks and putting gameplay first and foremost. This is an important read for anyone who never played the game, which is still readily available on most platforms, and should stand as a nice piece of nostalgia for anyone else who sunk so much into the game.

Click here for our Resident Evil 4 retrospective, and feel free to suggest future retrospective explorations in the Comments section.

It's a far stretch to call it horror. It was more akin to comedy horror you would find in the 80s or 90s, really tame stuff. But saying that there were a few parts of the game that really did unsettle me. The maze with those god awful wolves. Those regenerators... that awful sound they made. I loved how you would hear them before seeing them.

I really loved this game, even more so because I had a gamecube and I was really excited to play such a top notch game!

and now I'm excited for a return to classic horror, gonna play this at night exclusively just to s*** my pants.

This is a masterpiece I remember importing three copies for the states (freeloader was the best thing Datel ever released) for myself and two mates as the 5 months delay was too long to wait! It upgraded the Survival Horror genre in such a massive way, Dead Space and the Last of us are both incredible because of this title. I agree with everything you have written Steve, great article 

Any chance we might get another one next year for the remake of remake?
