for everyone who loved re4's beta more than the released game. for the people who want to see it released/recreated feel free to join.welcome to all.for the people who don't know what resident evil 3.5 is: resident evil 4 had multiple beta's like pretty much every other game in existance. only with re4 (and 2) the beta footage that was shown to the public seemed much more interesting and awesome then the released games. with re4 having all kinds of paranormal stuff like a man comming out of a painting with a hook trying to take your head off while he is inmortal unles you shine on him with your flashlight. re4's beta also included re5's uruboros. instead of plaga's and that kind of stuff. re3.5 was the real deal. the real survival horror.
In Resident Evil 4, special agent Leon S. Kennedy is sent on a mission to rescue the U.S. President's daughter who has been kidnapped. Finding his way to a rural village in Europe, he faces new threats that are a departure from the traditional lumbering zombie enemies of the earlier installments in the series. Leon battles horrific new creatures infested by a new threat called Las Plagas and faces off against an aggressive group of enemies including mind-controlled villagers that are tied to Los Illuminados, the mysterious cult which is behind the abduction.

Resident Evil 4 had a troubled development cycle. The game was originally slated to be released on the PlayStation 2 in 2001. Due to conflicts with the writing staff, Capcom took the assets from the first build of Resident Evil 4 and put it into Devil May Cry. It was stated that the beta for the first build was "too action orientated" and thus it was scrapped.
There is currently a playable fan recreation of one of the betas to the game. The download for the game is now defunct and can't be played. The game, titled "Code:Madman" after the Cube Magazine fiction of a similar name published in the lead up to Resident Evil 4's original release ("Diary of a Madman"), is the only supposedly available gameplay that is now on the internet.
Resident Evil 4 also had a famously tricky birth, and went through no less than three revisions before it was finally released. Besides the aforementioned Devil May Cry version, there were also iterations that featured Leon fighting standard zombies, and yet another with the character being chased around a gothic castle by a fog monster while hunting down Umbrella founder Oswell E. Spencer. 2b1af7f3a8
