The first weakness of the game lies in it's plot. First of all, it's generic. Save the princess (Ashley), then save the world from evil (Los Iluminados). There's no underlying message that teaches anything new, but rather it's a script from some B-movie.
My thoughts exactly. The game had some very good graphics, but the story was cheap and the gameplay was good but not a resident evil game in my eyes. RE4 didn't have that "suprise" like the other ones did. There were a couple of parts that did excite me and that's when that monster that you have to use the heat-sensored scope on comes out of nowhere, they should've had more stuff like that then it would've been a bit better, and they just basicly took away umbrella, wtf is with that?

Well, you people are WRONG. Resident Evil 4 was awesome. Awesome to the max.

I think his review was fair. I think RE4 was great and will write my own review on it eventually, but you always have to keep in mind when you review a game: "what was this game supposed to be".

Since RE4 is more action than it is horror, if you try to review it from a horror standpoint its going to fall short. You could say its "generic" but isnt everything? As long as it entertains you i think its ok

Frankly, I don't like action games most of the time. They ultimately end up being repetitive, since you keep doing the same attacks over and over again. RE4 does have a few puzzles, but they are incredibly easy to solve and there just aren't enough for a 20 hour game. There is just too much shooting. At least in other combatfest games like X-men Legends or Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, you can enjoy it with your friends.

I just found the first 10 minutes to be much more enjoyable than the last 10 hours.

I already gave you guys a couple examples why I think the story doesn't cut it. Instead of focusing on the horrors and tragedies of how the people got infected, it focuses on Ashley. Then they throw in a whole bunch of reasons that don't make sense and I've lost all respect for the story.

I don't see why the game deserves praise, when you look at it beyond the graphics.
