    Resedent Evil 4 Impressions???

    .....really goddamn awesome.....

    I'm only a good 45 min in (lunch break) .... is anyone else a good length in???

    by far some of the best visuals this generation to date, and certainly the best art-direction the RE series has ever had....

    and yes, I still went into playing it with my mind wired for the older games in the series.... That quickly had to change when I was rushed by 15+ villagers and had nothing loaded but a grenade.

    yes indeed, this is the first RE I've been happy with (Outbreak was fun, but not a full RE game) ...

    And also this is the first game in the series where you'll actually get swarmed in a house and have to defend against hundreds of zombies.. Kicking down ladders, pushing book cases in front of doors, etc...

    incindiary grenades are fun against crowds

    Aww man. This game is so badass. I'm about two and half hours into it, and stuck at the stupid troll boss. He's a bitch. That aside this game is not only incrdible looking, but damn fun as well. Hehe, right on with what you said Sammy about getting surrounded by villagers. This game's a blast. Wish work was over so I could go home and kick some troll ass.

    ^^^
    keep pluggin' all you got into the Troll, and if you go in the sheds to get bullets be prepaired 'cause he'll take 'em down with a swinging tree (some context-sensetive buttons should come up for you to duck) ...

    after a bit *spoiler?* that dog you saved from the beginning of the game should come help you ... he offers a distraction so run near him and take advantage of the Troll's short attention-span...

    Once you've busted him up enough start shooting at the thing that pops out of his back *classic*

    Hehe, I did all that, and I think that I kept managing to get him way down, but then he'd hit me, knocking me across the level, and.....killing me. RRrrrgg...so agrivating. I'll get him though. *holds up intimidating fist of DOOM!! dundundun* Will try again later. Thanks Sammy.

    gamespot.com:

    Yet it's not enough to call Resident Evil 4 one of the high points of the series, because this is probably the single greatest horror-themed action game ever created.

    ....

    I'm still waiting for my copy (I'm in Europe).
    ( I'll kick the shit out of the postman if I don't get it tomorrow! )

    This game is.. godly.

    I actually got carded for it when I went to buy it... I'm 22 and couldn't pass for 17?! >_< But besides that, yea, I played for awhile... had to kill some crazy chainsaw guy in a creepy house.

    I'm not even a real horror game fan... this game is just amazing. I could even say it's the best gamecube game period. Definitely the best 3rd person shooter mechanics I've ever seen. I hope the story plays out as good as the graphics, mechanics, and sound.

    Oh yea, the bossfights in this game... absolutely brilliant. I won't give any spoilers.. but at the end of chapter 1, that was the most hectic and frantic bossfight I can remember in recent history. That troll was nuts too. I'm afraid to see what's next.

    I'm on disc 2 of the game right now, I'm taking my time to explore every part of the game. It's absolutely. Definately one of, if not the very best game this console generation, in my opinion. And that's hard to do, when you have games like MGS3 with "The End" boss fight. I've been playing the Resident Evil series since it first started, but turned my love over to Silent Hill. Silent Hill 2 was in my opinion the best survival horror game, on par with last year's Fatal Frame 2. But RE4 has just won me over... If you want to count this game as survival horror, it could be just an action game that happens to be the most frightening game experience I've had. All in all this game is great, I'm really nitpicky about games, but I'm struggling to find a single thing wrong with this.

    lol. It's a system seller for sure. I would but the console just for this, and I'd be content. I love throwing this game back in the face of XBOX fanboys who said the GC has poor graphics potential.

    MAN! this is SUCH a great game. It's nice to see the gameplay evolve into something great. Finally you don't feel helpless against the enemies but, it can still get damn freaky.

    After playing this version with such wwell adapted gameplay I don't think I could ever go back and play the others. Btw I really like the 1st and 2nd. The Remake was dope.

    Oh yeah and the GRAPHICS! They have some damn great Texture Artists! It's not that just each or single textures here and there are great but, the environments are just so well Textured and Properly Proportioned that it really puts your into the game/world.

    I just got to the part where you fight the Gladiator Enemy for the 2nd time.

    Man, I swear Capcom are the masters of gameplay! That game if full of one intense moment after another.

    Also would like to say if you didn't like the "you need the weird ass key on the otherside of the mansion" type gameplay from the other RE's

    they've really streamlined those elements so you'll always find what you need close by.

    i have to say this is probably the best example that not all games need to be freeroaming to be good. The series of events really pushes you on a straight and forward path and it never once gets old.

    hah that's strange, I was very deterred by the trailer. It showed the couple pushing a wagon with explosives down a hill, Looked very scriped and constipated. Now I hear this. woot woot.
    Jamen jag tror att han skäms, och har gömt sig. Vårt universum det är en av dom otaliga spermasatser som Herren i sin självhärliga ensamhet har runkat fram för å besudla intet.
