If you never had the misfortune to play it, know that the PC port of Resident Evil 4 was one of Capcom’s (and Ubisoft’s) darkest moments. So shoddy was the coding that it turned one of the greatest games of all time into a poorly-optimised, bug-riddled joke.
Now, so as to squeeze a few more bucks out of a game that’s already been ported to every video game system on the planet, Capcom is re-releasing the game on PC, this time doing the right thing and doing it properly.
Well, to a point. The code’s probably just the Xbox 360 and PS3 HD re-releases tidied up, but even that’s a massive improvement over the garbage originally released in 2007.
Called the Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition, it will run at 60fps, and will be out on Steam on February 28.
