1.) The graphics are superior but the satisfying sound of scoring a critical hit isn't there and that was the most satisfying part of Umbrella Chronicles
2.) The control is give and take, weapon selection is much easier but grenades aren't as fluid because you have to select them and use them with the button instead of using the nunchuck, it's baffling why they would abandon their fun and effective motion controls.
3.) The explosive weapons, particularly grenades and grenade launchers, are all but useless since splash damage is pathetically under implemented.
4,)The camera, dear Christ, the camera, whichever developer(s) thought it would be a good idea to move the camera around the environment like caffeine addled ten year old needs to be shot.
5.) The obsession with creating a cinematic experience fills the gameplay with frustration. For example: for no good reason whatsoever the last two bosses are invulnerable to gunfire even when their health bar is displayed. Good luck figuring out when 'cause chances are you'll dump hundreds of rounds fruitlessly into their carcass.
The cinematic experience also ruins the other boss battles because just emptying their health bar isn't enough you have to follow a ridiculous scripting of events and, oh yeah, even when their health bar is drained they can still kill you. It is frustrating beyond words to fight a boss and lose despite reducing their HP to 0 because you didn't properly perform their arbitrary scripted sequence. Not only does this become annoying but it makes the more powerful, slow moving weapons like the RPG useless because you have to go through that abitrary sequence instead of outright killing them.
In short, I'm very happy with this game. I definitely recommend it to any fans of the Resident Evil franchise. To others who are not fans, but are looking for a good rail-shooter, or are looking for an overview of Resident Evil 2 and 4 (If I remember correctly, those two Resident Evil titles should be the focus of this game (like Resident Evil 1 and 3 was the focus of "Umbrella Chronicles")), this game should do the trick.
If you buy the game: HAVE FUN!
EDIT: this game does not feature levels from Resident Evil 4.
Now saying that, this game is awesome because
-It is a rail shooter allowing you to experience from first person perspective basically shoot Zombie heads, legs anything you want unlike original titles
-It has MUCH BETTER GRAPHICS than original titles, therefore to me at least it is a MUCH BETTER EXPERIENCE
-they have done WONDERFUL JOB with reanimating the BOSSES, which to me is the best part of Resident evil series
-they have a NEW SCENARIO which goes into LEON'S PAST and fills link between Resident Evil 4 and other Resident Evils
-you can power up your weapons, so it adds an RPG element to the game
However, like every game it also has its limitations
-Unlike Umbrella chronicles you can't move your camera around making MOVEMENTS A BIT RESTRICTIVE
-parts of the game, the camera is JUST TOO SHAKY, however this is necessary in my opinion because it adds feeling to the event being portrayed
-lastly the game lacks variety in terms of scenarios that Umbrella Chronicles had, but has a GREAT REPLAY VALUE NONETHELESS
So yes it is not for everyone, but it is A GREAT GAME NONETHELESS.
To all the Wii owners who only buy Mario and Sonic titles, try this stuff out, support the dying genre on wii, you won't be disappointed

Not too bad of a game. Do not like how the camera is VERY shaky though. It makes it much harder to aim.Published 9 months ago by Jason D Hartwig
Good, fun game. Easy to play with remote and nunchuck or just the remote. Better in co-op.Published 9 months ago by Dyhhan
Definitely a challenging game and a fun one at that. I usually don't like rail shooters, but this one was great. Just wish it was easier to upgrade weapons.Published 10 months ago by Louis Mayer
