I'll play the game and see for myself whether it's "RE4 Reborn" or something else.
If it really was better than RE4 people would be going crazy for it. We wouldn't hear the end of it. Reviews would all be 9s and 10s. That is clearly not happening. Of course some people will like it more than RE4 but it won't be the general consensus. When I say it is not better than RE4 I don't mean it as a direct comparison as much as I mean it being that level of loved and respected as a monumental game that will be talked about as one of the greatest games of all time.
Well, it's impossible for TEW to have a fraction of the impact that RE4 had when it launched, that game's innovations were revolutionary and it was a technical marvel. While TEW doesn't seem to be doing anything new, and it's just decent on technical level. (Those animations are nasty, though).
TEW might end up better than RE4 game design-wise, but I don't think it will review as well, simply because it lacks the same impact RE4 had.
