Nintendo are loving re-releasing games at the moment. So it doesn’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.
GameCube titles as varied as Mario Power Tennis, Pikmin and Resident Evil 4 have all recently made the transition over to Wii with some degree of success. Some have fared better than others, but the general consensus is that if judiciously applied, motion controls can make a good game even better. The defiantly old-school Resident Evil Zero, on the other hand, was always unlikely to benefit from this treatment.
At this point, Wii owners should be entering the stage called “acceptance.” Your games will only ever "look great for a Wii game," and you'll never get a game of comparable graphical quality to Resident Evil 5, so let’s just move on and understand that what you do get are different, but not necessarily worse, games.
Rhythm Heaven Fever takes the uniquely Japanese fun of the niche series and makes it more inviting than ever. This adorable title is one of the last Wii games you should ever care about...
Being a gigantic, muscle-bound dude who walks around half naked, uses a talking gun and has bright blue skin, Rogue Trooper must be as easy to recognise as the Incredible Hulk. Despite this, the authorities feel the need to put out TV broadcasts warning people to look out for this most wanted (massive, murderous, a bit blue) fugitive.
Human beings aren’t centipedes, and they don’t have quite the same control over each of their individual limbs. Not when it comes to co-ordinating each with another in different combinations over and over again, anyway. But that’s no excuse for the toughness of Drum King’s intermediate and hard difficulty levels.
The basic premise of the game is unchanged from its Xbox origins: coloured shapes fall from the sky and you have to press the B and Z buttons to rotate a series of platforms so the shapes fall through the right holes. The difficulty increases as more shapes are introduced, butterflies steal the shapes, and bad guys called Meemoos block the holes. It’s all fairly straightforward.
