Capcom should probably be doing more to keep Resident Evil 4 feeling like the classic it is, but it still fares well for itself in its current form. Leon Kennedy’s best adventure is still a blast from start to finish and rescuing the President’s daughter has never been easier thanks to the Switch’s portability. No matter if it is your first time dealing with the plagas or you know RE4‘s map like the back of your hand, this is a worthwhile version that should be replayed. Even in 2019, this is still Capcom’s crowning achievement and a master class in game design.
It will likely take a Resident Evil 2-style remake in a few years if it's ever going to truly sing on HD hardware – and goodness knows the game deserves it – but if you haven’t played it in the last decade, the Switch version is a very solid one, even if it doesn’t feel as special as it once did. So, what’ll it be, stranger?
On top of the 15 or so hours you’ll spend playing the main game, there’s plenty of extra content to keep you playing, such as Ada Wong’s side-mission. This gives you a bit more backstory and it cleverly crosses paths with events in the main game. The excellent Mercenaries mode is here too, which is one of the most addictive modes in any game ever and it will take many, many hours to get the best rank in each stage. The Switch version also comes equipped with in-game achievements to earn, which are just the other versions actual achievement/trophy lists, but it is a nice extra to have.
