I) Introduction
Hello! I have taken it upon myself to compose a spoiler free guide for
those who would like to trek through Resident Evil 4 while not
having the plot or interesting gameplay details spoiled for them as 
they read through a guide. This guide is designed to give the player a 
brief walkthrough for the game while not revealing anything like 
critical plot moments or files that the player would like to discover 
on his/her own. The strategies and descriptions should be brief enough 
to help the player through any tough spots while being light enough to 
not spoil anything. 

After 5 years or so of being at GameFAQs, this is my first ever guide!
So lets hope I do this right...

This is one of the greatest games I've ever played in recent times, and
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

On to the walkthrough!
