This port does not suck at all

Let's get right to the answer, is this port of a gamecube game actually good? HELL YES! Capcom delivered intuitive controls that make the game way more fun to play, also this version has all the ps2 exclusive content not found on the cube along with true widescreen support and progressive-scan. Did I also mention this game retails for only 30 bucks?


Resident Evil 4 screenshotYou aim with the wii remote in order to take down enemies with precise motion detection by pressing the B button to ready your weapon and A to fire.

You guys remember how you had to drag your cursor at the edge of the screen in order to turn in games like Red Steel? Well it does not work that way in re4 wii. You use the control stick in order to turn or look up and down while aiming, this takes about 10 minutes to get used but after that you will constantly be getting head shots. Also you can slash your knife simply by doing a slash movement with the remote which is just awesome to do.


This game supports DOLBY pro logic 2 surround which is fantastic and Capcom even added sound effects in the wii remote speaker which only helps to immerse you in the game. Graphics are still impressive even for a gamecube game, but it's a shame Capcom didn't use the wii's extra power to upgrade them. The framerate issue is solved in this version though.
