Summary: I picked this game up to spend a little mindless time blowing away zombies. Got to level 5 and couldn't continue because I had mis-managed it. I had to start all over, playing it smart! Seriously, they could use this game in business schools. You have to manage inventory, estimate the cost/benefits of your actions, and figure out the most efficient way of negotiating every level.
Summary: This game is a LOT of fun, once you know what you're doing. Here's several tips: When you first start this game and you are not used to the control yet, this game can be really really frustrating. I remember spending a whole hour dying in the game and having to play a stage at least 2-5 times in order to get through it safely. First of all, when you start this game, don't be shy to die. Remember that you can always reload from the checkpoint, always use that.
Summary: By now I'm sure you have read plenty of reviews about this game for the Wii. So I'm going to throw this out to you instead.....I have played Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition, all four Call Of Duty games, GoldenEye and Quantum of Solace, The Conduit, Red Steel 1 & 2, Rogue Trooper, No More Heroes, Dead Rising Chop Till You Drop, and Cursed Mountain all for the Wii.
Not in HD but still one the best versions of RE4 available!

Summary: In 2007 Resident Evil 4 was ported to the Wii game console. 2 years after its initial debut on the GameCube and PS2 back in 2005. The port was branded: "Wii Edition". And this was mainly because it added Wii Remote & Nunchuk support. Here's a quick look at the story of the game. You play as US agent and Raccoon City survivor, Leon S. Kennedy, who has been assigned the mission of rescuing the President's daughter, Ashley Graham.
Summary: RE4 is an amazing game. I had it for ps2, played it on gamecube as well, but it was by far the best for the Wii system. It's the same game as the other two systems; nothing new was really added. The main aspect that made this game better was the controls. It was much better playing with point and shoot rather than trying to line up the shot with a joystick, it gave the game that much more of a realistic feeling.
Summary: RE 4 for the Wii is a double edged blade. On the one hand, aiming is easier with the Wiimote, but on the other hand the zombies have been sped up a bit to compensate for this. Don't think the game will be a walk in the park just because you're using the Wiimote. The controls work beautifully, but I found that using both the Wiimote to aim and the nunchuck to adjust the general camera direction was a bit challenging. It takes some getting used to.
The best version of what has always been an amazing game

Summary: I still remember when RE4 first came out on the Gamecube. I was blown away; it redefined what the Resident Evil series gameplay was moving into; and it was just an all around amazing game. After what seemed like ages, Resident Evil 5 came along... and it was a disappointment; no need to go into the details, but as is generally agreed that it just misses what made the 'new' RE gameplay/design so good.
Summary: Ok maybe I am not an expert at Resident Evil but this game has left me frustrated with some of the challenges... sure I understand I will die and learn, but in this game I might as well be a zombie since I spend most of my time dead. I love a challenge and will probably stay at it but this is one game I just might not try to beat.
Summary: I haven't played the game much...but it's alright. The part that annoys me is that I bought this game with the Perfect Shot gun as a bundle offered by Amazon.com. The problem is...it's not compatible with the gun. I looked to see if there was a way to change it in the controller options but there wasn't. Unfortunately, the "B" key is used to aim instead of fire...the "A" key on top of Wii remote is used to fire.
