Resident Evil 4
Nintendo Gamecube
Resident Evil 4 transcends the horror action genre with its cinematic approach. Considering your number-one kill tactic is a bullet to the brainpan, this game is not for the weak of heart. There are some human (not always zombie) targets, so it takes a little mental rewiring to get comfortable. The game is presented in widescreen format and the cut scenes and action are worthy of a great cinematographer. The extra few inches on either side of the screen are extremely useful in picking up peripherally whoever—or whatever—wants you six feet underground. You'll rejoice in knowing that wandering about and maiming in Resident Evil 4 is easier than ever. The controls are much more intuitive, which was the great knock on its predecessor.
