Resident Evil 4 iPhone gets a demo version

Capcom has released a demo version of Resident Evil 4 for the iPhone, called Resident Evil 4 Lite. As demos usually go, you can get it for free on the App Store, and will have the chance to try out the game’s first chapter. 

The full game costs $6.99, but is it worth it? Uh, that’s what the free demo is for, dummy — to find out! From my own experience with the Lite version, I can say that (if anything) it certainly looks like Resident Evil 4.

But as far as playing it goes, it really shows the limitations of the iPhone hardware. You can’t simply adapt a game that was designed for an analog stick to a touch screen, simply adding a phantom touch-analog stick in its place. Maybe it’s just me, but I find that impossible (and annoying) to use. 

Am I alone in this? What do you think of Resident Evil 4 on the iPhone? Did you hear, there’s a free demo version available now! I wrote about it once.
