Would coming out four months earlier have made a difference for Cold Fear? The game is so similar in almost every respect that it's difficult not to compare it to Resident Evil 4, and it suffers greatly by that comparison. So the question becomes, if there hadn't been a Resident Evil 4, would Cold Fear have recieved a higher mark than it's getting here? Probably not.
