In case you don't know the story, Resident Evil 4 follows Leon S. Kennedy, a former RPD police officer trying to forget the horrors of Raccoon City. He now works as an agent for the President. The President's daughter has been kidnapped, and it's up to Leon to rescue her. Yet when he arrives to the location there's something weird about the locals. Leon will quickly discover that there are indeed things much worse than being mauled by zombies.
Most gamers are aware of Resident Evil 4's greatness, but it never hurts to go through it again. Resident Evil 4 sports some of the best gameplay in the entire series. Instead of a fixed camera, it follows Leon around and you see things from over his shoulder. This means Resident Evil 4 was the first Resident Evil to go fully 3D and it works out just fine. The environments are fantastic looking, with even the tiniest things given details. Even two years later, the game still looks absolutely fantastic. There are even some XBOX360 games that don't give this kind of attention to detail. There are no frame rate issues and no horrific load times. Best of all, the game remains a good challenge.
When it comes to the Gameplay of Resident Evil 4, however, the Wii is a completely different experience.Read more ›
For those of you who have never played it before, the game centers around Leon Kennedy, on a mission to rescue the President's daughter, Ashley Graham. But with inhuman creature after creature flung at him, it quickly becomes obvious that these aren't any ordinary kidnappers he's dealing with. It's more or less a side story to the main Resident Evil plotline, so even if you've never played an RE game before in your life, don't worry--you won't get confused.
The game is amazingly fun to play. It does have a couple of "make you jump" moments, but for the most part, it's not really a scary game. It is very gory, however--Leon can die in any number of memorable and horrendous ways, such as having his head cut off by a chainsaw-wielding maniac. It can also be extremely difficult at times. The game throws near endless enemies at you from the beginning, forcing you to adapt to the controls quickly merely to survive. And believe me, you will die. You will die many times. What little scariness the game does have tends to come from being surrounded and fearing for your survival--although, on Normal difficulty it's not as bad as some other notoriously difficult games (coughDMC3cough).
Now, as for the Wii version. If you've played the game before, this is where you'll want to start paying attention.
The Wii controls work amazingly well, and are very intuitive after a few minutes of playing. To shoot, you simply hold B, aim with the Wiimote, and press A to fire.Read more ›
So...I popped open a cold one, sat down with my new RE4 game and proceeded to have a heart attack from the terror the game caused. No, not really. I'm old, but hopefully not that old.
The game starts you (Leon) out in the woods in front of an old house on the outskirts of a Spanish speaking European village. You're a third person controlling Leon. The graphics look stellar and the sound is as realistic as it gets.
As you walk through the spooky woods towards the house your footsteps in the leaves are clear. Upon entering the house you are immediately attacked by a crazed local that doesn't seem to be a zombie. Based on the movies (and previous games from what I hear) you expect zombies. As you exit the house you are attacked by more locals (that will viciously kill you unless either you do them in first or safely make your way past). Zombies would have been a welcome adversary versus this unexpected enemy.
But don't worry; if you're looking for more than just crazed locals, you get them. Be careful what you wish for, because unless you know what you're doing, these boss/mercenary/creature battles are difficult (if your playing in the normal game mode which I'd recommend as opposed to the amateur and easy mode).
