We know, we know. This review is a little late. I was going to make up some long winded story about how I had the review written out before a bunch of the undead stole my hard drive and took me on a wild goose chase around Raccoon City before I could get...

This has to be my favorite Wii game. The controls are perfect. It made RE5 harder for me since I was used to precise aiming with the Wii controls. It's a lot easier to make every single shot count when all you have to do is point and shoot. I can't get enough of running around and blasting zombies away. I highly recommend this one to any fan of the genre who hasn't already played it.



CharlieisEverywhere said:

I'd have to disagree with SilentJ. I think the controls are clunky. And though the game is alright, I barely play it because of that. That's the only reason I don't play this game anymore.

Good as a game, bad as a Resident Evil. No Raccoon City. No Zombies. No mutated animals. No nighttime. No fixed views. NOT SCARY!



Iggy said:

This game is great and its even better considering i got it for 10 bucks.



danschemen said:

Mediengewimmel, if you're not a fan of the Resident Evil franchise don't worry, this game doesn't stick to the formula of RE!! I myself am a fan of the Resident Evil games and was surprised to find RE4 to be nothing like the others, but fun on its own right. RE4 was 1 of the first games I bought when I got my Wii. The guy at the game store told me to.
