I would agree that Resident Evil 4 is one of the best games on Gamecube and that it is well worth investing in a Cube to play it.

However, I don't think it is the single best Gamecube game and I think that some purists will still consider this on-par with Resident Evil 0.

Resident Evil 4 is on par with Metroid Prime and Wind Waker for the best game on the system, and all three are in the top 10 of the best games of this generation, regardless of system.

With the exception of Wind Waker, which I found to be mortally boring, I'd agree.

I think that the Wind Waker was the best 3D Zelda game, easily.

wind waker was good but felt finished towards the end. Collecting the 8 triforce parts was very boring

Besides being a fantastic game, just the artistic angle they took with the game was so fresh that it would warrent it one of the best this generation has seen.

But seriously...all of you. Buy Resident Evil 4. You have no idea what you're missing out on if you don't. Don't wait for a port or a localized version or whatever...buy it NOW.

Been waiting for this Spong review for a while and it's been worth it. I'll be bagging a copy come hell or hybrid tyrant.

I think RE4 is the kind of game we all cry out for when we ask for a sequel and is a bold step taken upon terroritory where many developers fear to tread.

I recall my thoughts when I first purchase RE remix and RE0 because of the interesting Billy/Rebecca gameplay, I was blown away with both, the latter more than the former. Then RE4 shuffles along and empties it's Magnum rounds into my head. It's a clear assault on your sense that I'm sure I'll be indulging in long after GC is dead and buried. (just like my SNES U.N Squadron)

Capcom clearly show their talent once again and I'll be shocked if it doesn't win plenty of awards because they are well deserved. It should be very interesting to see how Konami now respond with their Silent Hill series, the last few of which have been average to bad.

I do find it interesting that Capcom are porting RE4 to PS2 so late in it's life, when PS2 already has RE Outbreak 1 and 2 taylored for it, but it's most likely a business decision and a topic for another time and place.

Can hardly wait to see what they have in store for RE5, regardless what format it's on. Well done Capcom and thank you for such a mad game. Very good review by Spong too.

I really wouldn't hold your breath for a game as good as Resident Evil 4. Besides having to try and follow up one of the best games in recent memory, the Resident Evil team will be without Shinji Mikami, producer and creator of the series. Not saying it's not possible to make another great game, but it would be sort of like a Zelda game without any help or guidance from Mr. Miyamoto.

the day we are without Mr. Miyamoto... the thought of it is way more depressing than it probably should be.

I don't think you can get GC ROMs...

Even if you could, you should buy the actual game and support Capcom for actually making it.

Dork McAmerica is actually an incredibly funny troll from UKR.

No you can't get "ROM's" but I've seen ISO's on BitTorrent sites, but from what I've gathered over t'internet GC modding/piracey is painfull.

Haha, joke's on you, I'm not incredibly funny!

UKR resistance was a forum visited by about 10 people, about 6 of them big Sega Saturn fans and 4 of them random people that live in Japan and have never even played a Sega before.
