Six years have passed since Raccoon City was destroyed and the government has dismantled the Umbrella Corporation from the inside-out. But the terror is not over. Now a U.S. Agent, former Raccoon Police Officer Leon Kennedy has been dispatched on a mission to Europe to save the President's daughter from a "crazed organization" that bares a striking behavioral resemblance to creatures found in the Arklay Mountains. Is there a connection between these foes and the horrible nightmares from the past? Discover the answer for yourself in Resident Evil 4.

Wii Version

Capcom has decided to re-release Resident Evil 4 for the Nintendo Wii. The Wii version borrows from both the Gamecube and the PS2 versions of the game. The game has the Gamecubes superior graphics, as well as the extra content found in the PS2 version (that means the Ada Wong missions are included). This version is meant to be the best Resident Evil 4 out there. As expected, the game includes the Wii's signature motion control. A simple shake of the wii-mote draws you knife and slashes crates or the throats of enemies. The pointer is used for precision aiming and camera control. Even though the pointing reticule is onscreen at all times, you still have to stop to shoot. Also, the pointer does not handle camera control (all previous Wii shooters used a bounding box method to control the camera), that is still delegated to the joystick. All of this content for the bargain price of $30. Experience what is widely considered the best game ever made.

I have the Wii version (simply point at the screen); how does the aiming system work on other consoles?

You may be getting your wish. Tons of games are starting to have aiming systems like RE4. Just Cause, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Gears of War are all based on RE4. And with the ridiculous success of Gears, well, I think every 3rd person action game is pretty much going to go the RE4 way. Which is great, because it really is the best!

I wish all shooting games had an aiming system like this game. Its incredibly accurate and way more realistic.
