This game, put simply, is amazing. When I played the original on the gamecube, my jaws dropped at the graphics, gameplay and environmental details, not to mention its high replayability factor. Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition is a must own for those who never bought the original.

Gameplay - Phenomenal and groundbreaking, action prompts, interactive curscenes all handled by the wii-mote, and quite well too. The laser sight is replaced with a crosshair, allowing excellent accuracy even at a distance with guns. Enemies are very smart, you will be flanked in the open. If you try hiding in a house they will bust down the doors, windows and in some cases jump from the ceiling. Enemies are varied.

Controls - Good as well, you can even switch to a classic controller for a laser sight, although i wouldn't reccomend it. Actions and aiming all performed using the wii-mote. Sometimes you will have to wiggle the wii-mote to run, dodge attacks, turn levers, you name it. Reloading is handled by pushing B on th wii-mote and then wiggling it. Overall quite fitting, although it takes about 10 minutes to get used to.

Story - More fleshed out than the original, but not by much, thanks to an extra side story. It's pretty straightforward, with a plot twist here and there.

Sound - Great sound, everything is well placed and sounds right, and voice-acting is very well done.

Replay - Plenty of minigames to play and unlockables give the game more replay value, story mode will last about 20 hours depending on if you played the original.

Graphics - Amazing, even for wii still looks good, some effects are better looking, but more or less same as gamecube.

Overall - A great game on the wii, and also the best version, a definite buy.

I give it a 9.5/10. The graphics are smooth and not choppy like ported PS2. It maintained its awesome gamecube graphics. The Wii Remote is sweet, holding the gun out and lowering the wii-mote to reload. I was hoping we could hold B ( aim ) and flick our wrist up to fire the gun, that would be more realistic. BUT moving your wii-mote side to side is the quick swipe for Leons' Combat Knife ( which is the best weapon in the game for me ). With a better A.I. this time around, i was having difficulty dodging those creeps in the village segment. The only downfall i have encounter is the knife, quick draw, at the wrong moment. When you aim at the screen for a while your arm does get tired and you'll put your hand/arm down to rest it, at that moment whatever Leon is currently doing (running/shooting) you'll just stop and swipe your knife. This ruins your aiming moments when its 5 on 1.

Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition holds up the Resident Evil 4 potential, with fusing all features of the ps2 and gamecube versions, your sure to get a full feel of this game.
