Resident Evil 4 is actually the sixth game in the ground-breaking Resident Evil franchise. Considered to be the rebirth of the franchise, Resident Evil 4 revived the almost dead franchise with its addictive blend of action and horror that games in the Survival horror genre, and Action games will copy for years to come. It was originally part of the Capcom Five and a Nintendo GameCube exclusive as well, but has since been ported to the PlayStation 2, PC and Wii.

Resident Evil is rated Mature by the ESRB for Blood and Gore and Intense Violence.

Resident Evil 4 gave inspiration to another great game, also developed by Capcom; Devil May Cry. This Hack-and-Slash genre would eventually surpass the Resident Evil series.



Six years ago, Leon Kennedy survived the destruction of Raccoon City, as seen in Resident Evil 2. Since the events of that day, he's become a highly-trained government agent, answerable only to the President of the United States. The Umbrella corporation, which was responsible for the Raccoon City outbreak, has been driven out of business by the American government.

After several successful missions, Leon was supposed to move on to a job as a bodyguard for the President's family. On what would have been his first day, though, the President's daughter Ashley Graham was kidnapped. Leon was placed on the team dedicated to finding and recovering Ashley, and soon afterwords, is sent to investigate an anonymous tip. Ashley has reportedly been sighted in a rural village in western Europe.

When Leon gets there, he finds that the villagers, called Los Ganados, are hostile towards outsiders, and that all of them apparently belong to a bizarre cult called Los Illuminados...
