Minimum Review
With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

Resident Evil 4

Publisher: Capcom
Developer: Capcom
Platform: Gamecube | PS2

 

Really?

Yeah, really. Though it didn't win a top genre award, that's only because it's such a renaissance monster. Resident Evil 4 does everything right: it fixes its classic camera problems ingeniously, ups the ante on console graphical design, changes the very nature of survival-horror gaming and, more than anything, delivers the most complete gaming package of 2005. Heck, they even got rid of the zombies. Sort of.

Perhaps the most impressive thing about RE4 is the fact that it plays equally well on both the PS2 and native Gamecube, a rarity in this era of quick, shoddy port jobs. You can't overlook the care given to this game, and while in general we try to distance ourselves from supporting sequels, we know greatness when it scares the crap out of us. Well done.
