Posted by Anthony Dickens
Violence fans rejoice, whilst your waiting for Manhunt 2 you can get your paws on Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition in the US from today.
"Resident Evil® 4 is one of the highest rated games on Game Rankings.com and Metacritic.com, garnering dozens of awards and nominations for its amazing game play and incredible re-invention of the “survival-horror” genre. This celebrated game now comes to the Wii with added Wii Remote and Nunchuck™ support, allowing players to immerse themselves in the game as never before. With RE4 Wii Edition, Capcom is offering new and more immersive sense of control to players, while keeping all of the game’s incredible game systems intact. As Leon Kennedy, players will explore a town overrun by cultists, mutants and mind-controlled villagers, using the Wii Remote to aim, fire, slash and avoid oncoming adversaries with intuitive motions and movements. RE4 Wii Edition will also contain the additional content included in the PlayStation® 2 computer entertainment system version of the game."
Released today in the US and next week in Europe, Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition is the "Ultimate" edition of the game. It's had some pretty good reviews so far, only a handful have been critical, citing issues with the control system and the feeling of "dated" software on a new machine, probably valid points but afterall this game is a bargain at almost half the normal price of a game.
We've got our copy, so look out for a full review over the next week or so.
