Weak

Controls are frustrating

I thought this would be an instant Wii classic with the Wiimote. Ugh...the game has terrible control! Maybe I am missing something, but it seems like you can't strafe at all and movement while "aiming" is severely limited. Maybe they should have just waited for the RE5 to come out with a Wii version...

Excellent

Hard not to give it a 10...

What can I say? Wow. This is a fantastic game. I never played the original GC or PS2 versions, but although the game's graphics haven't been updated since the GC version, it still looks beautiful. The addition of the PS2 extras can only mean good results.

Again, having not played the original traditional controller versions, I can't comment on the difference. I can only say that the use of the Wii Remote is excellent for the purpose of aiming. I wouldn't change a thing about it.

On the other hand, using it to reload is kind of silly. It's no simpler or easier at all, really. In addition, the quick swipe is good, but doesn't work 100% of the time. It's about 90%, but that 10% can be a big deal when close combat comes up...

I'd definitely recommend this, and honestly, $30 is not a lot for a game like this. Especially if you only pay $25, from GameFly. Definite rent, most likely worth buying unless gore is not for you. (Decapitations and exploding heads are quite graphic)
