"Whether you have one of the other Resident Evil 4s or not, Resident Evil 4 Wii Edtion is a must buy"
Resident Evil 4 came out for gamecube a couple years back and came out a year later for the ps2 with some addtional content. Now it has been remade for wii. The wii version has the aditional content from the ps2. You use the wii remote to aim your gun and shoot zombies.
As well as dodge attacks, use your knife and reload.
All the great stuff from the other re4s are in the game. You walk around and hold a b to aim your gun. you then point the remote and press A to shoot things. You can't walk and shoot at the same time, this may seem stupid but it is actually great. Most of the enemies would walk toward you and then melee attack you. So you have to shoot them before they get to you and damage. But you could turn and run too. Shooting zombies in the head would stun them and do more damage, so it takes some skill. If you shoot a zombie in the head it will usually be stunned. Then you could go up to it and kick it. This will knock it down and do a bunch of damage.
Throughout the game you will encounter many different enemies. You will fight a lot of zombies, monks and soldiers. I didn't like the soldiers though, they weren't very scary. You will also fight zombies armed with chainsaws as you must know. The zombies with saws were also much tougher and extremly fun to fight. They will saw your head off if they get close. They were very scary too, they would be getting close and you would be shooting but sometimes they would get to you. You will fight many other scary enemies and they are just as good.
You will collect money going through the game. From killing enemies, in drawers and cupoards and from selling stuff. You find merchants that will sell you new guns as well as upgrades. You could sell treasures that you find. It was fun and buying different stuff each time you beat the game was great.
The sound was excellent, just like in the other versions. You could hear the zombies chatter in spanish. You will also hear some of the other enemies make noises. You could hear the chainsaw revving and stuff like that. You will fight this one enemy wich makes this breathing noise but you might not see it yet. Then it would come from behind. It is very scary.
The graphics are good too. They look pretty much the same as the other versions.
Resident Evil 4 is one of the best games out there and now you get to aim using a remote. Whether you are into resident evil or not and even if you have one of the other versions, Resident Evil 4 is a must buy.
