The game is also a lot easier to navigate using a keyboard and mouse. While the sections of the game where you are forced to play babysitter with the president’s stupid daughter annoyed me to no end in the original game, this time around they were cake. I could turn around, aim with a simple mouse click, and pop off a few rounds to take out anyone who is threatening her. That being said, I still kept her in a dumpster whenever I could… you know, for the lols.
That being said, if you absolutely must play the game with a controller you can. The game is compatible with pretty much every PC compatible controller, including the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PS4 controllers. It was actually quite fun to control Leon with a Dualshock 4, and the newer triggers actually felt way better than the old squishy Gamecube ones. Once again you’ll find that the game slows down but it’s a lot closer to the original feel of the game at least.
But is Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD edition the definitive version of the game? Well that’s a hard question to answer. It has all the cool extras that every other version before it had, minus Wiimote motion controls of course, but it doesn’t have much more. It’s just as good looking at the Wii version, just as good sounding as pretty much every other version, and has all the content of the PS2 version. So, in the end, the definitive version of the game will depend on what style of controls you like more. If you dig motion controls, pick it up for the Wii, if not, pick it up on PC.
Oh, and if you still haven’t played Resident Evil 4 yet, what the heck is wrong with you!? For a mere $20 dollars you can own one of the best (if not the best) Resident Evil game of all time. So what are you waiting for? Get on steam and buy it now!
