Perfect

Similar to original PS Resident Evil

This is a basic survival horror game. Even though it wasn't groundbreaking, it wasn't a broken game. Simple, but it was effective. I played this over two years ago when my Xbox 360 had the red ring of death and I was happy to be playing something. You go around looking for missing pieces (keys, etc.) and defend yourself while doing so. With the new PS4 and Xbox, this may be a bit too dated, but if the early PS1 era Resident Evil games are your genre, then give this a whirl.

..should at least give this one a try... and play it for more than an hour.

I'll try and keep this simple... Graphics: Merely ok; Controls: Good; Gameplay: Ok; Sound: Below average; Reply: Very low.

Once you get through the beginning areas, the game starts to pick up. I'm not a fan of "save points", but the game is easy enough that it doesn't matter. I love the survival horror genre and this works 'ok'. It's no Res. Evil, but it will hold your attention long enough to finish it.

It isn't the best game out there, but it's better than a lot of other Wii titles and I enjoyed it... for a while.
