That early village sequence sure was special
Despite loving the hell out of Resident Evil 4, I never did pick up Capcom's first attempt at a PC port of the 2005 game. By all accounts it was a mess, one that modders were able to salvage to some extent. The new PC version for Steam has high-definition textures and runs at 60 frames per second -- reason enough for me to pay the $19.99 asking price, I think.
Capcom has put out a handful of screenshots intended for side-by-side comparisons of the standard- and high-definition textures, viewable below. It's about what you'd expect, really.
Are you considering buying this port or do you own too many already to justify it?
