Don't know what these complainers are whining about because this game is great. The aiming system is dead on which is nice and the revamped graphics are really well done. I have never played the RE1 remake on game cube, the last time I played this game was when it first came out on Playstation One, so I am very impressed with the Wii port of RE1. If you are a true hardcore Resident Evil fan you will enjoy this game, very creepy on surround sound but fine without it too. If your not a real Resident Evil fan then go play GTA or Madden or something along those lines...

Port?...maybe, but still one of the best.

It's sad to see so many bashing this game based on playing RE4 or RE5. Let me remind you there would be no RE4 or RE5 without this title. I played it when it was new on PS1, and again when they released the directors cut, and once more when they updated it for the GameCube. It was amazing then, and it's amazing now. Yes, the motion controls are weak, but aren't they mostly niche in all Wii games. How many times have you used the motion controls for a game only to go back to hitting buttons when you realize how much easier it was to just to hit the A? One thing not being mentioned here is the updated HD widescreen presentation. Something you cannot get on the GC version. However minor it may sound to you, if you have an HDTV you will appreciate this addition. This game was made for all of those that haven't played through the game that started this whole franchise, and if you haven't ever been to the mansion do yourself a favor, and get this game. Still one of the greatest stories ever put to a videogame.

For everyone who has only played Resident Evil 4 and 5 and loved them, This game is not for you.

But if you are like me and you use to have hours of fun playing the original resident evils for the PS one you would deffinately love this one.

As you already know in this game you are not a one man army and have tons of ammo for each wepon like you do in RE 4 and 5. This game is a true survival horror, which means you have to conserve ammo by choseing which monster to kill and not mention all the crazy puzzels you have to solve.

If you are a fan of the original you will notice that the voice acting has finally gotten better the controls are pretty much the same apart from your using a remote and nunchuk, and they have added new rooms and changes to all of the areas (the mansion, guard house etc) also they have added some new twists and changes to the story lines, and they have also added some new creaturs and wepons.

Please dont listen to any of the bad reviews about this game if you liked the orignal and are thinking about renting or buying this game, you will not regret it.
