It actually would have been worth buying!

This is one of the few games that would have actually been worth buying. My first play through gave me 20+ hours of entertainment. The second is even more fun with the "special" weapons and the bonus games that kinda fill you in to other characters back stories. This game started the RE franchise on the right path to RE5... There are only good things to look forward to in the RE future!

Ok first thing I read the 50 low & high reviews before I post mine and counter them.

I mostly noticed that people didn't like the controls. Thats because this game was made originally for the PS2 with a port to the GC and now a port to the Wii. Plus the Wii controls aren't the most natural, I remember spinning in circles the first five minutes of Red Steel getting use to the motion

Any ways to my review

Capcom's Resident Evil has been defining horror survival games from the start, RE4 though was something new, in past games it was more puzzle then action

Story:
You start out looking for the presidents daughter whom has been kidnapped. You've tracked her down to this little town which turns out to be full of antisocial psycho carnivores (aka zombies). So first you have to find her, and then protect her, and then escape. This is actually easier then it sounds since she actually will try and stay behind you instead of run off to die like some games 'escort' missions

Gameplay:
At first (even on the PS2) it takes some getting use to, the wii controls aren't the best, but after getting use to them they are great

Graphics:
For the PS2 they were top notch and for a port still good

Variety:
As you get use to one monster, another one pops up to knock you down, bite you and then try to decapitate you with a chainsaw. Yes they all truly love you. Plus boss fights, which are insanely fun.

Replay:
On my 12th run, trying a Pro Handgun run. Basically beating hard mode with no upgraded guns. Plus unlock ables like the infinite rocket launcher.

All in all a great game with a few faults that easily become acceptable.

Tips:
Never trust a review with all CAPS or bad spelling.
Get use to aiming shoot the crows at the start.
When you get to the village, don't even think you can kill 20 zombies with 12 bullets and a knife, your not Rambo. Bunker down in a house.
Conserve ammo by shooting them in the face then kicking them.

9.5/10
