I own this game for gamecube, and I have to say the Wii version is twice as good. If you are under 10 years old this game might be scarry for you. If you own a wii and like games that keep you on the end of your seat this game is fo you.
Today the first day it came out I bought it and it is awesome. If you have 30 bucks and you want a fun game i highly recomend you buy this game.
Having played through RE4 on the Gamecube many times, I was really loking forward to this new edition of RE4 for the Wii. The controls work very well, and in many ways even better than before. Aiming is easier, and using the knife is as simple as flicking your wrist. Everybody seems to be complaining about the fact that you can't strafe. Well, this is not a big deal. The game still plays flawlessly, and is a ton of fun. This is a survival horror game, not an action shooter. Apparently these people have never played old RE games, because they were all like this. The graphics are well done, and are some of the best graphics you will find on the Wii. The sound is some of the best in any video game to date. The music is appropriately haunting and moody, and really immerses you into the game. I would give this game a 10, but it is a port of a 2 year old game with new controls. Other than that it is perfect.
I am half amused of what the Wii can do rather than other RE4 console hits. Although the graphics are top notch, and the control aiming are amuzing, there are still some bad news. When your in frantic situations, the last remote you want is the Wii's, and the controls just don't seem right if you've played this game on other consoles(GC, PS2). Overall, i would be best that if you have a Wii, You'll probably want to get this game for the huge amount of how scary this game is.
