Resident Evil 4 Remake is highly anticipated and the demo is a hit. Only, there you go, many fans are not happy with the result and the game is divided even before its release.
Capcom’s flagship license is once again put in the spotlight and the projects concerning it are multiplying. The long-awaited Resident Evil 4 Remake is coming soon and is already playable thanks to a small demo., Resident Evil Village recently had the right to its big VR mode on PSVR 2 (be careful, the game is broken ) and the movie Resident Evil Death Island is coming soon. The latter has also unveiled unpublished images there is little.
So many things. But if we hear about it this weekend, it’s mainly because Capcom has a lot of problems with its franchise, especially with Resident Evil 4 Remake.exactly.
Resident Evil 4 Remake does not only make people happy
After months of salivating hype on the presentations and other gameplay sequences offered at each of its releases, Resident Evil 4 Remake has finally been approached by players recently. During Capcom’s latest livestream, the game shared a demo depicting the start of Leon’s nightmare, on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. Fans and the curious then flocked to it, and on consoles, the disappointment is great.
If the artistic direction, the few visible new gameplay features, the level design changes and the maddening amount of detail in the environments were welcomed by the majority of players, the technique was criticized on consoles. Especially on PS5, where it’s a real cold shower. Resident Evil 4 Remake indeed drags a persistent blur effect regardless of the mode chosen (quality or performance) due to a resolution at half mast. It’s even quite ugly in performance mode. In any case for a production of this caliber whose graphics engine is capable of much better ( Resident Evil 2 Remake and Villageare for example much thinner). The Xbox Series version would (graphically) clearly be better, but would not be free of problems.
The players are divided
On social networks, it talks. Players are hoping these worries are just for the demo, but some are already fearing the worst. Several players have even noted other problems, bugs and others, such as the fact that certain textures completely disappear, imprecise gameplay or even a Leon who talks too much to say nothing (the punchlines that he swings like a Marvel movie hero)
In short, even if the game still seems to be particularly promising and remains highly anticipated by a large part of the fans, Resident Evil 4 Remake is just as disappointing for the moment. In other words, it divides.
