I have played RE 4 to death! It is my stress relief at the end of a hard day. Are there any similar games in terms of how the controls work as well being the same genre? I did not like the other RE games for the Wii that I tried. The controls were not intuitive and I spent more time trying to figure out how to walk or turn around than I ever did enjoying the game. What do you recommend?

Well in terms of similar Wii games, maybe you should check out Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon, or Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (It's really more of a similar vibe thing with SH, because there is no combat at all in the game). But on the PS3/Xbox 360 I'd suggest Dead Space 1 and 2, Alan Wake, and Resident Evil 5 (I'd strongly recommend playing with someone else in RE 5, the ai partner is super retarded!). Hope this helps.

Cursed Mountain

It's like an old school RE game and it's like $10 at Walmart.

Obscure: The Aftermath

another old school RE clone for $20

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop

Mindless zombie killing fun

Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector's Edition

Dead Rising sucks.

They're nothing at all alike. The real Dead Space games are excellent, and probably would appeal to most people who love RE4. Extraction a light gun-less light gun game.

I would say give Dead Rising Chop Till You Drop a try. TONS of zombies to kill and unlimited weapons to kill them with. PLUS, it is made by Capcom which are the same people that made RE4 and the controls are EXACTLY the same. On RE4, I have completed Leon's main story probably 20 times and another 25 times with Ada's Separate Ways. I completed Dead Rising about 5 times and it is a pretty fun game and cheap too. Again, if controls are your main concern, these two games have the exact same controls. Dead Space Extraction is also pretty fun, but scared the crap out of me while I played it because it's creepy as hell. Another pretty cool game was Rogue Trooper Quartz Zone Massacre. Not many have heard of this game and I don't know why. I thought it was very fun to play and it's another third person shooter with a number of different weapons to use. Also Man Hunt, Golden Eye and Quantum of Solace, Cursed Mountain was also different and creepy, and don't forget about all of the Call of Duty games too. If you liked RE4, then you would most likely most of all of these games. Good luck!

Dead Rising...also not like Resident Evil. I still think RE 5 and Dead Space (the real ones) are the best bets. Maybe Bioshock too.

WolfPup - This thread is about games like RE4 on the Wii!! RE5 and "the real" Dead Space games are not available on the Wii. Since games like RE4 are pretty scarce on the Wii, that is why games like Dead Rising Chop Till You Drop are being mentioned. All the games that I mentioned are available on the Wii. Chop Till You Drop has the exact same controls as RE4 and that is why I recommended it because controls seem to be Jeannie's main concern here.

No it isn't. And even if it was, it doesn't make Dead Space Extraction or Dead Rising anything like Resident Evil.

Wolfpup - go back and read Jeannie's first question again. Both Dead Rising and Dead Space Extraction are survival horror games, like RE4, and Dead Rising has the exact same controls. I have played damn near everything on the Wii and no, there aren't any games like RE4 because RE4 is pretty much in a class by itself and is one of the best games ever. We are just making suggestions because Jeannie obviously wants to play something other than RE4 the rest of her life, so that is what everyone is doing. Again, Dead Rising has the EXACT same controls, has a hundred's of zombie's to kill, and is a survival horror game. I think it's a perfect suggestion for someone looking for another game to play, especially since she loves RE4 so much just like I did. All the games you suggest are not on the Wii and that is what she is looking for - look at her title for crying out loud!

I did before posting.

<<<Both Dead Rising and Dead Space Extraction are survival horror games, like RE4>>>

They're nothing at all like RE4, and it's pretty tenuous to call them survival horror. Both are VERY little like a traditional "survival horror" game. Extraction is a light gun game without a light gun, for crying out loud.

<<<there aren't any games like RE4>>>

Yes there are, which I and others on here have mentioned.

<<<Dead Rising>>>

Is nothing at all like Resident Evil, save for the zombies.

<<<I think it's a perfect suggestion for someone looking for another game to play, especially since she loves RE4 so much>>>

No, it's a terrible suggestion for someone looking for something like RE4, because it's virtually nothing at all like Resident Evil.

<<<All the games you suggest are not on the Wii>>>

So?

<<<and that is what she is looking for>>>

According to you? Even if that were true, which she doesn't say, recommending games that are nothing like the game she likes makes no sense.

WolfPup - I'm starting to wonder if you have even played games before!?!? Or are you just on here to cause trouble? But then again, I guess Jeannie really shouldn't take your suggestions too seriously since you have reviewed things like "Kraft Blue Box Macaroni and Cheese Vegi Original, 5.5-Ounce (Pack of12)" - really!?!? Seriously!?!?!?

For those of you that recognized I was looking for Wii games, thank you. I've love to play RE5, but that would require a console that I do not own, and I can't say that I loved playing RE4 enough to spring for another console just to shoot some zombies! I'm checking some of these out to see what I think! Thanks for the recommendations!

Jeannie - I have copied the product features that Amazon has placed for Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop. In my opinion, I think you would like this game. I played this after playing RE4 over and over again and I was very satisfied. It is not as long as RE4 and I think I completed it in about 8 hours on my first go around. There really are not any equivalent games to RE4 on the Wii, but this is a fun game to play and uses the exact same controls as RE4. Tons and tons of zombies to mindlessly kill with unlimited weapons to use. It's pretty fun and cheap too. Good luck!

Product Features:

Utilizes the same engine as Resident Evil 4 Wii edition. New level of interaction - aim and fire guns, swing and throw weapons and shake off zombie attacks with added Wii Remote functionality.

Huge environment - expansive indoor and outdoor areas of the mall provide a variety of different locations to explore. Improved save functionality allows for more seamless gameplay.

Hoards of enemies on screen at once resulting in non-stop, pulse-pounding action. Anything in the mall is at Frank's disposal.
Grab environmental objects like umbrellas and benches to use as improvised weapons.

Snatch items from different stores to use as weapons including golf clubs, lawnmowers, frying pans and more. Consume food and drink to revive health.

You MIGHT like Dead Rising, but as I and others have mentioned, it's NOTHING like Resident Evil, save that it has zombies in it. MANY people who love the Resident Evil games can't stand Dead Rising. It's a very weird game.

Jeannie - Please just disreguard WolfPup as he is clearly here to be a negative influence for whatever his reasons might be. He has brought nothing to the table that will help you with your decision. Yes, the games he mentioned are great games, but are not available for the Wii. You stated "similar games in terms of how the controls work as well being the same genre?" and both Dead Rising Chop Till You Drop and Dead Space Extraction are survival and action horror games (which is how Amazon describes them) and Dead Rising has the exact same controls so you basically would already know how to play this game. Dead Space Extraction is an on rails game which means you cannot control your player's movements. The controls are very simple and it is a creepy, fun, first person, on rails, action horror game. It is also cheap and I think it took me about 7 hours to complete the first time. Jean Scales also recommends Dead Space Extraction and all the games that Metalive suggested are great too.

Wow. You are astonishingly rude.

You come here, ignore what the OP asked about, post random games, and then for some reason single me out and begin insulting me, when I'm actually trying to help? Just wow.

How have you possibly helped answer the OP?!?! Name one Wii game you have recommended to her. Oh that's right, none. Why don't you just but out of this thread and go back to your RE5 since you have nothing to offer!?!? How's that Mac N Cheese btw?

Posted on Jan 24, 2012, 11:15:03 AM PST
If I'm not mistaken, it may the the on rails feature that I can't stand. I tried games like RE Archive but I hated the inability to do much other than go forward or back. Is that on rails?

WolfPup says:
No, it sounds like you played the remake of Resident Evil 1 probably? The control in that is stiffer than in Resident Evil 4, even if they're related. On rails means you have no control over where you move. It's like an old light gun game, where the game moves you along and you shoot things, and that's about it (aside from the Wii not actually having a light gun available for it).

You may or may not like that, but it's a very different experience from what's kind of an adventure and sort of like an action movie like Resident Evil 4.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles
Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles

Those two are basically light gun games without a light gun. Even though they use the Resident Evil name, they don't play like the real Resident Evil games, and I personally don't like them.

Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil
Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero

I'm guessing you played one or both of these two, the former of which is (originally) a remake of Resident Evil 1, released on the Gamecube. They're more similar to Resident Evil 4, though the control is I guess you might say "stiffer", where you press up to move forward, and turn by pressing left and right...RE4 made it perhaps a bit more intuitive for some people, and made the game a bit more action oriented.

I agree with what WolfPup said about four Resident Evil games. I also did not like the Darkside and Umbrella Chronicals - which are both on rails and you have no control of your character other than to shoot things. RE and RE Zero I have not played on the Wii because I played those back in college when they originally first came out, so I really don't have any desire to play those again, and they are designed more like the old school games and not like RE4. Nice post WolfPup!! lol

Yeah, beyond not being that great of a game, it was really unstable for me too. Too hard towards the end also, although I think I finally finished it, though had it crash a ton along the way.

The real Dead Space games are pretty amazing, and I'd think most anyone who likes RE 4 will probably like them, but Extraction plays nothing like them, and despite being a far simpler game than the real ones, is pretty unstable too. Never had the real Dead Space crash on me.

Geez, the real Dead Space, the opening moments with the ship docking is incredibly memorable, when you dock, enter that first area with the automated doors cycling open, and the overhead lighting flickering to life, and dust/smoke hanging in the air... so atmospheric.

Extraction...could have been much worse, but there's just no comparison, and it's not stable either. Weirdly the port of the game to the Playstation 3 (it comes free on the Playstation version of Dead Space 2) is ALSO unstable in the same ways. They managed to preserve the instability too lol. (The real games though I never once had crash.)
