I am not very consistent in my reviews. Some are thoughtful and in depth, others are a dumb joke. Consider that tone part of the overall rating.

This potassium filled adventure is ripe with fun arcade action that begs you to peel back it's layers to improve your scores and times.

You can tell a lot about a person based on their favorite Uncharted Game.
Ex. If this is your favorite then Sully is your favorite Uncharted character.

I don't think this game is better than the original RE4, but I also don't think it's a weaker title. This game feels like the true 4th degree for releases in games. We have Remakes, Reboots, Remasters and now just like RE2:R a true example of Reimagining a title.
This game oddly enough feels like the perfect companion piece to an already perfectly made game. Its improvements don't feel like they replace the original title but rather recontextualizes this campy and action packed adventure into a strong horror masterclass.
It's still goofy, it's still sexy, it's still RE4. But it is important to remember it's thanks to the original RE4 that we have cinematic, character/story driven games. For them to take those initial building blocks that inspired so many other games and create a title that feels like it captures that initial inspiration in a new light is impressive.
Resident Evil 4 is not my favorite RE game. It's not in my top 10 games of all time. But without it most of my favorite titles wouldn't exist in their current state. I believe the original RE4 is one of the greatest games ever made, and I think this games sits right beside it.
TLDR: I geeked so hard when I blocked a chainsaw with my knife.
