Reviews from the Nintendo-slanted Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu have unveiled the potential of yet another Wii game worth playing. According to two editors, the GameCube-to-Wii classic Resident Evil 4 is a perfect 10. Here is a bit of their reasoning:
The reviewers noted that while the content is almost the same as the GameCube original, the direct Wiimote-based controls offer a plus, making the game feel like something fresh and different. One reviewer said that the game offers the feeling of being closer to the action as well as upping the tension.
Multiple reviewers agreed on two points, that the new controls are simple and easy to get into, and that even those who played the original will be able to enjoy themselves.
Is RE4 worth buying a second time just to play on the Wii?
