I had it preordered for GameCube at EB Games. I played through the demo multiple times before it came out. I remember thinking it took ages for it to come out on PS2. I remember seeing photos of people holding up a copy and thinking “you're finally going to get to play this amazing game?”. I had a Ps2 at launch, but at the time exclusives for a particular console meant nothing if you owned all the consoles on the market. I bought the PS2 version down the road. The GameCube version was one hell of a game. It felt like it didn’t have any flaws to it.
PC's resolution is too high for this game ; shows too many flaws. Might be missing an effect here or there too. Some animations are locked to 30fps, so it's best to play at 30fps on PC as well, if you can lock it properly in the control panel. Seeing the rifle animate at half rate Then turn hd textures off as they're gross.Graphics and performance, as always, PC.
Controls? Some will disagree, but probably Wii. If not Wii, then PC.
I knew what you're thinking because you said xbox ports and that's the only game I can think of atm. SC aged like milk, low poly with over reliance on normal maps, but it takes all kinds I suppose.
awful DLC? I really liked it, specially chapter 4 and 5 of separate ways. Also, the new weapons were really cool.Beaten Resident Evil 4 on Gamecube, PS2, Wii, PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and PS4. Obviously, the PC is the most refined experience. The Wii was really fun because of the aiming scheme, but I'd suggest that it shouldn't be your first playthrough.
The PS2 had no real benefits to it besides the awful "DLC" added to it, but I have so much nostalgia for that version as it was my first. If it's the only version you ever had to play, there would be no issue. The game is that good.
You're right, maybe awful is too harsh of a word. The bow was pretty fun to use, and certain scenarios like "Leon is fighting in the background while you open this door for him" was fun, but overall it wasn't good for me upon replaying. Assignment Ada was just "run to the next door and don't bother killing anything" simulator.awful DLC? I really liked it, specially chapter 4 and 5 of separate ways.
