What do you expect from the Wii?
I think the atmosphere is cool, really captures the typically RE flair.
When gameplay is cool, a hot game is coming for all Wii-players!!!
However I'm not a fan of the console, but with more games like this it could get interesting!

looks good, but will it be longer then the typical light-gun game (which is what this amounts to) or will it total 2 hours worth of gameplay?, im guessing the later.

Well it seems to have lots of content anyway. From what I understand you play cases from all the first RE games.

0, 1, 2 and 3. I haven't seen anything from CV, so I dunno if that's in there.

Anyway, that still doesn't give any real indication of length, but on a positive note the average light gun shooter longevity is greatly limited by the fact that they're based on a pay-per-continue arcade cabinet, whereas this is made specifically for the Wii.

Also worthy of note; while the HoTD remarks are fairly valid, this plays more like Panzer Dragoon.

as much as I love all Resident Evil games this one is a big letdown, on-rails shooter= absolute rubbish. I can´t believe I have to witness the end of Umbrella with a game like this.

dissapointed that the game plays like an arcade shooter. was hopeing for a interactive resident evil game since the wii came out since resident evil has been on nintendo systems before. still going to try this one out since it looks good but going to have to pass on buying this.

Looks good for a wii game. They are streaming assets for each room on the fly to maximize the texture ram potential of the system. Take a good look as this is almost as good as its going to get in the next-gen realistic graphics department.

Its also worth noting that Wii shots are beginning to be native buffer grabs these days whereas during launch many studios felt the need to do high resolution bullshots. Now they realize the system sells not to geeks scrutinizing screenshots online but for casual gamers.

My only complaint about this game from what I seen is that the zombies dont react to being shot or really seem to move at all. I dont want to pay for a game with 5 hrs of cannon fodder. I seen no sign of AI whatsoever and wandered if Capcom was even trying on this one. Ill need to see some major footage of the opposite before Ill even consider getting this.IM just looking forward to BH5 at the moment.

    Tiz @Sdarts: Industry Icon is not usually for one game, but your contribution to the gaming industry I feel. There are several developers that I feel deserved it before Kojima I should have said. (28 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX And heck one of my main complaints about the Monkey Island 1 remake is that you can't play the talky version with the OG graphics. Pixels don't offend me. (29 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A GOG version would be.. pretty much ScummVM. And you totally do not need HD assets to enjoy LucasArts games. Played Sam & Max Hit the Road like two months ago. It's still beautiful. (29 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If only GOG had a version. Either way, an HD remaster made just to work with new systems and some HD assets is all I need. (32 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Lost the CD a long time ago between movings. I have used ScummVM and VirtualBox before, but playing though a window or fullscreen at very low resolutions does more harm than good. (34 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: If you have the original you can just play it with ScummVM :) (48 minutes ago)
