    Resident Evil 4 Remake is a re-imagining of the 2005 then-GameCube exclusive, Resident Evil 4. The game since went on to virtually all other platforms and is still to this day cited as one of the most revolutionary and important games of all time. Thus, news of a remake was met with some trepidation as well as excitement from the fans and critics alike; Capcom had to get this right.

    The game was released worldwide on March 24th 2023 on PC (using the Steam platform), PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X (The game is also supported on the older PlayStation 4 consoles). It was met with critical acclaim with some calling it the best remake of all time, and even standing on its own as one of the best games of all time.

    The game runs on the RE Engine, a feature-rich game engine which Capcom have used since Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. The graphical effects, reliablity and fast load times demonstrate that the engine remains at the cutting edge.

    The storyline and characters follows the original - albeit with some extended sequences and slightly different outcomes. For example, Ada Wong is featured more prominently in the main story thread, rather than her having her own specific, separate storyline. Also, The Merchant offers vastly more side missions to complete for unique rewards, something which was not explored very much in the original.

    All characters, enemies and locations return from the original and encounters are fought in very much the same way. This was intentional, as Capcom were very careful not to tinker with the formula too much. However, one large departure was now giving Leon the ability to move whilst shooting - something not possible in the original game. Enemy AI has been overhauled so that they close in on Leon at a more aggressive rate, to counter-act the more relaxed gunplay. There are also a small handful of new enemies which did not feature in the original (although reportedly they were all designed for the original and were simply cut from the game at the time).

    The structure of the game also follows the original, being divided up into chapters which end in a results screen. After completing the game, the player is able to keep their inventory and optional progress on an additional playthrough, at the expense of an S rank being unobtainable. However, completing the game also unlocks Professional Difficulty - an extremely challenging mode only for the most skilled players.

    On March 9th 2023, a Demo was released named The Chainsaw Demo. This featured the beginning of the game and finished after the first villager attack. It garnered popularity around its release due to the fact that it featured a handful of hidden features and unlocks.
