Resident Evil 4 on GameCube is flawless. The graphics are stunning, the sound is intense, and the gameplay is very smooth. There are no zombies in this title, but it still manages to be quite scary. This time, the main enemies are virus infected humans that can still think and yet, just plain menace you to no end. The story is superb, with quirky supporting characters that add top-fun value to the cinematic scenes. I have already played through it three times, and countless times on the unlockable mini-games. The GameCube version was the one to get, and I am glad I did!

In Resident Evil 4 you'll know a new type of horror, as the classic survival-horror action returns with all-new characters, controls and storylines. We last saw Leon S. Kennedy in Resident Evil 2 - a rookie cop in Raccoon City, fighting to stay alive. That was six years ago. Since then, government forces have managed to control the zombie threat and Leon has become a Federal agent. When the President's daughter is kidnapped, Leon tracks her to a remote, hidden fortress in Europe - where he'll relive the horror he faced six years before. Players will face never-before-seen enemies that make Nemesis seem like a kitten. You'll be wishing for the usual Resident Evil zombies!
