Poor Port

Now for those of you who expected the aiming from RE4 or RE5 all I have to say is Really??? Its time your drop you expectations from Nintendo or Camcom. This game was intended to make a quick buck (I work at a game store, and FYI it didn't) For those of you who just played Resident Evil 5 on a real console and want to see how it begins I don't recommend this game. Try Resident Evil Chronicles its a action packed tracked shooter. It doesn't really do justice to the story but, you'll get a feel for the story.

Now the game really doesn't deserve a 3, its about a 7 or 8 in reality. Its suspenseful puzzler, with enough action to satisfy. Although this game is dated even when it was re-released, The graphics, controls, and camera are unacceptable for a 2009 release. This game is really for the hardcore fans.

K, so if you sold you game cube version of this, and you can't find a copy for under 30$ go ahead and buy/rent it. The truth is there's nothing different besides the actual controls(no wii motion support). The only real advantage to owning it on the wii is the fact that its all on 1 disk, but really? who cares?

if you were waiting for this game to come out because you liked resident evil 4, than you need to run as fast as possible away from this game. the controls are akward and sluggish. the view is not in the first person style. their is no aiming marker either. you can move your aim up and down,and move your character left and right. so you end up spraying and praying. cleaining my dogs steamy piles from the yard is less painful than this game. its definitely one of the worst moments for the wii. i don't know what the gaming comunity has done in order to deserve this insulting pathetic garbage. re4 restored my faith in nintendo. that is now long gone. next i am going to write nintendo and ask them why they don't care enough or are too cheap to make re5 happen for wii. i don't expect a response since most of their day is spent wondering why they are getting killed by systems like ps3.

I played this game on the Gamecube a few years ago and immediately sent it back, because of the controls. I thought with this updated version, maybe the controls would be updated like RE4 and RE5, but they were not. I played it for five minutes and instantly dislike it, so i shipped it back.
