Game Profile

Leon S. Kennedy, formerly Raccoon City Police Department's idealistic rookie cop, is now a U.S. agent with a top-secret mission to rescue the President's daughter, who has been kidnapped by a mysterious organisation.

Leon must begin his investigation with a trip to an undisclosed village in Europe, where he encounters a horde of unruly villagers who pledge their lives to Los Illuminados, the cult that perpetrated Ashley's kidnapping. As Leon encounters unimaginable horrors, he must find out who – or what – is behind everything.

"Where's everyone going? Bingo?"

Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition is rightly held in high regard by a number of series fans; this writer likes it a bit too much, completing at least one playthrough every year. It's a terrific version of a classic game, with pointer controls and occasional waggle that are actually fun to use, along with the inclusion of...

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.

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!

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.
