Resident Evil 4 – Chapter Par Time Guide


I noticed that no-one on the internet made a guide on how long you should take for each chapter. Being curious and a little helpful, I ended up putting together this VERY ROUGH chapter par time. To see if you’re on track, check the bottom left of the pause screen.

Note: Reloading a save/checkpoint from a death does add time.

Chapter Par Time

Hardcore/professional has half seconds for every other chapter. To make it easier to read, I will be alternating between rounding up and down.

Note: If you are doing Professional, then you can only save the game 15 times on top of doing this under 5:30:00 hours.

I love games and I live games. Video games are my passion, my hobby and my job. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices. My first official job in the game industry started back in 2005, and I'm still doing what I love to do.


  1. Rad. I keep spacing out my playthroughs over months so I don’t burn out and I keep forgetting what my third or fourth Assisted pistol and knife-only run for the wolf tail time needs to be so this helps. I’m 2:30ish near the end of chapter 9. Should be able to still get it though.

  2. you can finish this in 4 hours? I’m five hours in and I’m at Chapter 4. I guess I like to go around every corner for bits and pieces.

    • Yeah the four hour speed run looks very scary. On my very first playthrough it took me 15 hours.
