I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Resident Evil 4

When I heard that there was no zombies in this game, I thought "Oh God NOOOOOO!" I loved Resident Evil for the shambling masses! How dare Capcom remove such a factor!

However, I was undeniably impressed with the end product, zombies or no zombies.

Leon S. Kennedy makes a triumphant return as a government agent sent to rescue the presidents daughter. A far cry from the retarded rookie cop he was in #2.

The over-the-shoulder camera has dramatically improved gameplay, the laser aiming has revolutionised (Haha... Made a pun) the combat system. Now you actually have to try to hit the enemy.

The games enemys, while not zombies, are undoubtably fun to fight against. Blasting a ganado with a shotgun is almost as fun as blasting a zombie.

The games storyline has moved on a bit too, it now lacks the cheesy B movie feel, but also lacks the horror feel. Congrats guys, you turned Resident Evil from survival horror into another action game.

Nevertheless, this game is great and if you haven't played it either go shoot yourself for being a moron, or go and bloody well play it!
