Unplayable

I've tried playing this with the wii-remote, and it just... doesn't... work. Aiming may be dead on (if a little awkward to press simultaneously with all the other buttons) but it takes ages just to turn your character so you're facing the zombies. Movement is inverted with no way to change it (as far as I know), so whenever I found myself wanting to go left, I go right, and vice-versa. It'll take you a good ten minutes just to cross a single room, because you'll be bumping into every table and chair present. Really aggravating after a while.

Even with a gun, it takes more than five shots to bring down a single zombie. The screen is also really, really dark, even with the brightness turned up to the max. So with the combined awkward camera angles, good luck trying to navigate your way through this game.

But the big issue that remains with me is the wii-remote. I can see this game being somewhat playable with a regular controller... but alas, you're stuck with the one option.

The Resident Evil series deserves a far better rating than this, as they're one of the games that really defined the survival-horror genre... And they are genuinely great games! It just doesn't belong on the Wii, as the controls do not match up well with the gameplay.
