Pros

  • Refined version of awesome original
  • Wii controls!
  • Still scary

Cons

  • Nothing new over GameCube version
  • Wii controls actually suck
  • Won't convert the unconverted

Nintendo are loving re-releasing games at the moment. So it doesn%26rsquo;t exactly come as a surprise to see a re-released re-release of Resident Evil. The original PSone game was remade for GameCube with swankier graphics and new areas, items and creatures and now that game has been remade for Wii with not very much new at all.

It%26rsquo;s the same game just with Wii controls. And those controls don%26rsquo;t enhance the experience at all. Resident Evil is an absolute chore to control at times using the Wii although, provided you%26rsquo;re not an action game fanatic, you%26rsquo;ll grow to love how their unwieldiness helps build your adrenaline when a zombie approaches.It%26rsquo;s always been a great game and nothing%26rsquo;s changed. Got the GameCube version? You won%26rsquo;t need this.
