Resident Evil 4 Remake official key art and logo

Following in the footsteps of the excellent Resident Evil 2 Remake, the freshly launched Resident Evil 4 is a full and faithful reconstruction of one of the most famous survival horror games out there. As you would expect, the remake comes with greatly improved visuals, modernized gameplay and a reimagined story, though at its core it's still good ol' Resident Evil 4.

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you the launch trailer. It may be short, but it should clue you in quite quickly on just what the remake is trying to do and how it compares to the original. Have a peek:

If you prefer a more hands-on experience, it's also worth mentioning that the Resident Evil 4 Remake has a free demo available. The demo covers the iconic village section of the game, so much like the trailer above, it should give you a pretty good idea of what the Resident Evil 4 Remake is all about in a fairly short amount of time.

Personally, I'd highly recommend it - both the demo and the game itself. This thankfully isn't a Resident Evil 3 Remake situation where half the game has been chopped up to the point of being unrecognizable. It's instead a faithful homage to the original, and while it does differ in many respects, most of the changes have been made for the better.

You can check things out for yourself, as well as read a bunch of player reviews, over at Steam. Have fun!
