Elas this version is the inferior pc version with its pc-issues.

Capcom trying to make a quick buck.

Also Code Veronica is worse.

May I ask how you know that for sure since it hasn't been released yet?

What a great game though; it might be the creepiest I've ever played.

You played any Fatal Frame game? Gosh, they are survival horror perfection (especially part 2). RE4 wasn't that creepy at all.

Do it man! You won't regret.

Looks like the third is only on the PS2 :( But if the second part is the best, as you say, then I'm golden.

This isn't a pc port. It's the Wii/GC port. Anyone that has played it will know.

I've seen both games in action at a reviewer's office.

@Heavensdevil:

Yeah....I think you should play the game first. See it's not a direct PC-port. What makes it a 'pc version' is the fact that it shares the EXACT same issues (no filters, ugly textures and a 2 clean look that makes it look ugly) and it looks as, if not worse, than the pc version.

You'll understand what I mean, when you play the game.

I was afraid Code Veronica might be worse, especially with the old controls and camera angles. :/

Welcommmm'! What do you buyin...What do you sellin....
Commented on 2011-09-20 19:36:30
Isn't it like 20 bucks? No thanks , waay to expensive...

Thing is, I love the Resi games. You can still enjoy Code Veronica..its just that the whole "HD" look it got, didn't do it any good. (It shows the game's ugly imperfections cuz of the clean look, I dunno how to explain it well)

God Of War and Ico & SOTC aged well, and were remastered WELL.

RE4/CodeVeronica aren't true HD remakes. Cuz they didn't change the textures to comply with the HD-resolutions. They only umped the resolution and left the 480p textures.

It's a shame cuz these 2 resident evil games are amazing. I was looking forward to play CV but the dreamcast version is still the best version to play (graphics-wise).
For RE4 the wii version is the best version (graphics-wise).

man i hate this character, at least i get to kill the punk in the new resident evil coming out
Commented on 2011-09-20 19:42:53 In reply to IIGrayFoxII
Well they did not really change the textures for Ico and Shadow of the Colossus either to be fair.
Commented on 2011-09-20 19:48:41 In reply to Driftwood
Yeah I knew you were going to say that :P Thats why I added, "they aged well"

The already clean textures both games got, ADD to its beauty (graphically). Another prime example would be PN-03.

If a game uses clean/basic textures, then upping the rez, will only make it sharper and better looking.

Thing with resi games is, they use alots of fog/filters/effects in their original versions. So when played in high rez, you somehow miss that artsy look. Again I don't know how to explain this well but u'll see when u play the game.

Thing is......
....you dont need to buy an inferior version of RE5.

RE4 is the same, just with bad graphics and no co-op. Same boring non-RE gameplay, same enemies, same animations for most of them, same A.I., same weapon upgrade system, same weapons in general. Actually RE5 is a barebone copy of RE4, but lol, anyways...

If you already own RE5, you dont really need RE4 anymore. Only good thing for hardcore fans is, you can now play it on a 360. Capcom should have made a new or modified RE5 graphics engine and some new gimmicks (kinda like the Halo CEA remake, which is a true HD remake).

No thanks, Capcom. I'll just stick to my original PS2 copy. Unless you make an entire "No Mercy Mode" difficulty or something.

Which one did you play first between the two? RE5?
Commented on 2011-09-20 20:34:46
I doubt it was RE4, because back when it came out the game was nothing short of revolutionary. Just seeing footage of the first level was enough to make me buy a Gamecube, even when I knew a PS2 version would come out later that year

But look at Crapcom now. Port after port, DLC galore, oh and I guess they're doing ripoffs of God of War and Monster Hunter too

Got my japanese version the last sunday. Both with Code Veronica and BH1-3.
Commented on 2011-09-20 22:08:30
Uh this looks like the PC version. Am I wrong to assume the only thing different about this is the upgraded resolution?
Commented on 2011-09-20 22:13:26 In reply to spacemanjupiter
No.

Ur not.

Just getting round playing this, the controls are awful....what on earth was Capcom thinking when they made this!

    amerakindesi @Tiz: who is joe staten? I agree with your point though (9 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (4 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (5 Hours ago)

    docLEXfisti Snatcher was awesome, played it on the European Mega CD (7 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (8 Hours ago)
