Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition



A remake of the critically acclaimed fourth entry in the Resident Evil series. The package includes the original game (with tuned-up control for the Wiimote) plus the playable bonus Ada Wong side-story, Another Order. Set for Japanese release May 31st and Summer 2007 in West
not to be confused with Umbrella Chronicles

Update
9.1 review score from Gamespot, where they call the game the "definitive version of a modern classic", thanks to anonymous, who pointed out the game can be had for as little as $29.99, what a brilliant entry price.

If I remember right there is no upgrades in the graphics compared to the Cube version.... ?

It just comes with all the extras of the PS2 version.

If thats the case save $50 and pick up the Cube version for under $20..

Tom said...

Yeah, but the Cube version doesn't have the totally awesome Wiimote control!!!

*sarcasm*

The Elderly said...

Hiya Deitrix, Timerunner

tut tut,

controlling ada wong with a wii mote, surely thats a pinacle in a gamers lifetime....

gnome said...

provided the graphics get an upgrade... Oh, and the RE4 PC developers are shot.

The Elderly said...

shot! what was wrong with the PC version....

(looks for question mark... can't find it....)

Juri said...

Yeah, what's wrong with it?

{... is downloading wrong ???}

Gnome said...

No Juri, downloading is fine, but RE4 is a travesty on the PC. It's almost uncontrollable, looks hideous (way worse than the PS2 version) and nigh on unplayable.

Hmm... guess I might review it...

Oh, and here "?"

The Elderly said...

Juri hi, downloading is good, nice blog by the way

Gnome jeez thats bad.... hey look... you found it... why thanks

(thinks of a question..)

any interesting mods?

gnome said...

Well, yes actually... There's a mod that allows you t ouse the mouse for aiming, apparently.

The Elderly said...

Rlmao....

touche.....

fatherkrishna said...

WHAT? the first RE title for the Wii is a remake? Well that figures...

I heard the first RE title for the Wii was going to be a Light gun game AND an original game.

I approve of remakes if they are worthwhile, but really... Capcom are pushing the 'remake' thing to the point of distraction!!!

*Harumph!*

gnome said...

:)

The Elderly said...

so thats'

one RE4 remake for Wii
one original (possible light gun game) called umbrella chronicle..

check!

and according to my "everything you ever wanted to know about games, but didn't" vol 2, this appears to be a port and not a remake....

check!

though a nice cabernet would have been better...

cabernet.. lol.. port...

.chuckle.. ?

yes well erm it's a quiet night...

gnome said...

Quiet like the quiet thing, apparently.

The Elderly said...

yes indeed.. part from the dog barking... hate that dog.. owner lets him out same time every evening...

bark bark bark....

seriously annoying whine....

(grits teeth..mentally superglues dogs mouth shut)

ahhhh better now....

Besides, RE4 for the wii has a starting price of 29.99!

By the way, I've been playing it all day (just came out today) and the controls are amazingly fun!

The Elderly said...

what a bloody brilliant entry price.... and thank you anonymous for taking the time to comment... it's got 9.1 on gamespot and they're calling it the "definitive" version... now that is a good news day....

Anonymous said...

Hey,the elderly i just got the game too.I got it for the pc the ps2 and the gamecube and the wii. The best is the wii. The worst is pc.

The wii seems to have a little update in graphics but dosent have and bouns stuff like the ps2.

Anonymous said...

Bounes sorry I misspell alot on the computer...

The Elderly said...

spelling is fine anon, you should see some of the oops i've made in the posts from time to time.

I have the Ps2 version and it's ace... but judging from your comments I'll be adding this to my Wii purchase at christmas....

Anonymous said...

If you didn't get the cube version or want the Ps2 Exclusives. get it. The Wiimote makes aiming easier in my opinion. $30, you can't go wrong.

The Elderly said...

the definitive version they say, I've got to get myself an Wii.... thanks for the comment anon...
