"Resident Evil 4 VR is a breath of fresh air for one of the most ported entries in Capcom's long-running series. While the game is missing modes like Separate Ways or The Mercenaries, Armature has crafted one of the best versions of Resident Evil 4 to date."
Still, you’re getting the entire campaign, and that’s an important thing to circle back on. You know how the Wii version came out, and pointer use changed the way you played an already fantastic game? It’s like that all over again, but on a bigger scale. At this point I want all of the Resident Evil games to get this treatment. Hell, bring Dino Crisis back like this, so I can look backward and see a T-Rex running at me while hoofing it. Port Onimusha and add real-time swordplay. The sky is the limit!

One of the biggest survival horror hits find new home on Oculus Quest, adapting its core mechanics to the VR playground and achieving great success and bringing new emotions to the formula. It's not perfect, but playing it on Oculus Quest it's a completely new experience that any RE fan should try.
Resident Evil 4 VR is one of the most surprising delights of my entire year. Every part of the base game is here, and it all fits and feels right. Every bit of the schlock, fear, and intensity is joined by a well-thought-out array of VR gunplay, puzzle-solving, melee, and other satisfying interactions. Resident Evil 4 is one of the absolute high points of the entire franchise. This is a full-on adaptation of it with nothing left out. If you weren’t cool with the narrative, scares, or schlock before, this probably won’t change your mind. But if it was the controls bothered you, this is easily the best and most enjoyable version of Resident Evil 4 to ever come out.
Game Informer: 8.8/10
RE4VR is an absolute blast. The perspective shift from third to first-person and the ability to freely run around during combat fundamentally altered how I play one of my favorite games
The Games Machine: 8.3/10
Once upon a time there was a survival horror that stood out, at the same time, as a masterpiece and a model that would be the cornerstone of the new shooter-like spirit of the series. Once upon a time but also in this very day, again, with Resident Evil 4 VR, virtual reality port not perfect, but very enjoyable.
Metro GameCentral: 8/10
Resident Evil once again proves the perfect showcase for VR, with Capcom's aging classic working surprisingly well in first person – in what may be the definitive version on a modern format.
Resident Evil 4 VR is a bet won almost entirely. Transposing the famous horror title into virtual reality might have seemed like a gamble, given the many adjustments to be made to adapt to the peripheral, but Capcom and Armature Studios have managed to put the player in the shoes of Leon Kennedy in a very believable way. The title makes great use of all the potential of the Oculus Quest and also provides various options to adapt the experience to a wide slice of players, both those looking for a more comfortable journey, and those looking for action and adrenaline.
Resident Evil 4 returns in virtual reality exclusively on the Oculus Quest 2. If the game is identical to the original material in its graphics and game design, seen from the inside, necessarily, it is spectacular. Especially since the game is not stingy in very epic moments.
