Resident Evil 4 - NGC Vs. PS2

Resident Evil4

Here are a few comparison shots of Resident Evil 4 for GameCube and for Playstation 2. The GameCube version is a much better looking game, but the PS2 version has some extra content, which is pretty decent. It needed it, 'cause it's not nearly as pretty or immersive as the original Cube version (as you can see below). We'll have some pics and video of the bonus content for PS2 soon.

The PS2 version of RE4 is a fair imitation of the GC one, and we compliment it on the fact that it runs just as smoothly as the original. But it does make a lot of graphical compromises. The biggest one is the loss of most of the lighting. The PS2 version sacrifices the ambient world lighting, and also much of the dynamic lighting. For example, take these 3 shots below. On the left, Leon is first lit by the muzzle flash from his shotgun, and then by the barrel explosion. On the right, there is no light from the muzzle flash on Leon's face, and the explosion is somewhat more subdued.

Conclusion:
That's it. Those aren't ALL the differences--look for pics and clips of Ada's boss fights when we get around to it--but it's enough to make a comparison.

We've seen a lot of magazines and website chicken out of making a recommendation of which version to get. Well, here at gameswelike.com, we have the balls to say what we think (maybe it's 'cause we don't have any loyal readers, or editors). And we say the GameCube version is the one to get. It's the better version, by far, even considering the extra content of the PS2 version. The GameCube version looks hugely better, sounds better, plays better, and at this point, is the cheaper one to boot. The extra content is made up of too much re-used material to offset the big loss in immersiveness that the graphical and aural downgrade brings with it.
