NOTICIAS: 20.06.07 Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition on sale and reviewed!

Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition is one sale and made #3 at amazon.com's Computer & Videogame division. The game has been reviewed by practically every major gaming website and publication. So far, most of the critics agree that this new edition of RE4 is the best version available.

Here are some of the scores Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition has received so far:

Score: 90 points out of 100.
Award: Editor's Choice.
- The best from the GCN and PS2 versions with added Wii controls.
- Actually better with the Wii remote.
- A robust 15-plus hour single-player affair with all the content extras of the PS2 iteration.

- Little has changed.
- Textures show their age.
- Some waggle motions work well and others feel forced.

Computer & Video Games
Score: 9.3 points out of 10.
- Improved control system.
- Visual enhancements (16:9 and progressive scan).
- The definitive version of Capcom's finest Resi to date.
- You might have seen all this before.

Score: 5 points out of 5 (Perfect Score!)
- The definitive version is here.
- everything from PS2 edition.
- Still a great looking game.
- Its lower-than-average price tag only sweetens the deal.
- The Wii version is the best is because the new control system makes the gameplay more enjoyable.

- Visuals look a little dated by today's standards.

Game Informer
Score: 95 points out of 100
- Resident Evil 4 is still the benchmark in the survival horror genre.
- Wii motion sensing controls work effectively for the most part.
- As creepy and haunting as ever.

- Controls can be unwieldy in frantic situations.
- Wiimote target can be annoying.

Score: 91 points out of 100
- Intuitive, elegant controls make playing RE4 a joy all over again.
- Long, suspenseful story and excellent replay value make this a steal for 30 bucks.

- The controls soften the difficulty level a bit.
- No wii-specific content.

Official Nintendo Magazine
Score: 94 points out of 100
-"The most intense gaming experience on the Wii".
- No new content.

Electronic Gaming Monthly
Score: 8.67 points out of 10
- the controls generally serve RE4 well: Aiming weapons, swiping your knife, and shaking off face-sucking nasties with real-world moves adds urgency to an already incredibly intense experience.
- The controls may suffer a bit when things get hectic.

Score: 80 points out of 100
- This is the definitive version of a modern classic and a must-play.
- You probably played it already.

Score: 7 points out of 10
- It's still decent enough.
- It's hard to get along with the seperation of the aiming and moving controls, and the need to co-ordinate both.

NEWS: 13.06.07 Billy Coen and Lord Saddler to return in Resident Evil 5?

It seems that plot elements featured in RE0 and RE4 may somehow be continued in RE5, after all. That is if what appears at the Internet Movie Database is to be believed:

Check it out: imdb Biohazard 5

Resident Evil site REhorror.net has contacted one of the actors (Michael Van Wormer), who confirmed that he will play Billy Coen in Resident Evil 5.

Could he actually play the lead? That would contradict what was said about such character, no?

About Saddler... didn't he died in RE4? I guess they can add him in flashback secuences. Or maybe he's yet another RE character that comes back from the dead (ala Wesker or Ada).

NEWS: 18.05.07 Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition updates!

First let me say that the official Japanese website dedicated to Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition has some new content on it. There's a "premium" section. LINK: Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition (Japanese Website)

Moving along to the next update... Gamasutra published an interview with Christian Svensson, Sr. Director of Strategic Planning & Research for Capcom. The interview covered several topics, including Resident Evil 4. Here's an except:

Resident Evil seems very Wii-focused right now.

Christian Svensson: "It is in the near term. Resident Evil 4 has been very well received and has gotten good feedback from retail, in response to our pricing strategy" [of $29.99 in North America].

Some people said that it was under-served by being on the GameCube, in terms of the market that it could reach. Do you think that that's going to finally be realized now?

CS: "I think that anytime you can sell another copy to another new user, it expands the brand. A lot of people knock the decision to put it on GameCube, but at the same time, Resident Evil 4 was the number-one selling title for the GameCube in 2005, which is hard for a third-party. So it's hard to say that that was really a bad decision. It's gone on to sell very, very well on PS2" (for the record, the GCN version of RE4 sold 1.600.000 units while the PS2 version has sold 2.000.000 units).

"On PC, when it gets released by Ubisoft a little later this month, I'm sure it will do well. It's already out in Europe and Asia, and a new patch fixes a lot of the criticisms that people had. I'm glad that it's coming at a time when it's a bit more polished than it was initially for some of the other territory releases. And I think the Wii version is going to be the best version of the four".
