Resident Evil 4 Ripoff


The game's concept isn't a ripoff, but the main character's Arm Design is. Some online ads for this game caught my eye, because of the arm blades he has. Look up "Jack Krauser" on Yahoo Images, and you'll see that they sorta ripped off the concept of an arm turning into a blade. It looks really similar, and RE4 came out several years ago

And Terminator 2 came out years before RE4.

Well, Krauser has only 1 arm that mutated, the other one is pretty normal as far as I can recall.

Alex Mercer can mutated both arms. If you have played the game, in the very begining you can use most of his abilities and you can clearly see that both arms are claws and hammers. Other abilities has 1 arm as a shield or a double spear.

I know you say and i quote "It looks really similar, and RE4 came out several years ago" but what on these days is not a ripoff?

I leave that question open.

reply

I never saw that connection, mainly because it doesn't even look similar to Krauser. If anything I'd say it looks like Guyver.

reply

Indeed. The game is in no way at all similair to RE4. I OWN RE4 and went back to Krausers part to see? Not even close.

As for swords for arms, hell like the other guy said, T2?

But this game in no way copies re4.

Yup, I think so too...especially when you get the armour upgrade later.

I would be confident in saying they took inspiration from The Guyver possibly, especially with the biomorphing weaponry.

Wait, is OP implying people actually use Yahoo to search for images?

Sam Foster: You burned yourself? Why?
Henry Letham: Practicing for hell.

reply

HAHAHAHA to the OP! Anyways, the biggest proof that any game is a rip off is when all feel the same. When i saw the arm especially the WHIPLASH it reminded me of the Dark Prince from Prince Of Persia - Two Thrones.

No but still, this game is not a rip off. Yeah sure, its taken concepts from multiple games. But so has games like God Of War.

Oh BTW!!! You want a RIP OFF, Infamous is a pure RIP off of Fallout 3 and Star Wars - The KARMA and Electric thing respectively.

Grow up. Resident Evil 4 sucked. The original series was better. That was true survival horror. This game is way better than that piece of crap. I bet you never even played the original REs.

reply

Are you telling me to grow up? By the way, I HAVE played 2 and 3, and they are amazing games as well. And maybe this game is better than RE4, who knows?

If anyone here needs to grow up, it's you. Quit being a prick.

Ever seen Terminator 2? RE4 didn't invent the blade arm.
