I've been watching gameplay of Resident Evil 4 on the WII and whilst i found it scary, it does look like a very good game! However i'd prefer to buy Resident Evil 4 for the ps2 and i've never seen it played or heard any reviews so i was just wondering if anybody who has played it could tell me if its a worthy buy?
Thank you!
:D

i have it on the wii. it is an awesome game, though really scary in parts. best resident evil game lately in my opinion.
i have played it on the ps2 but the controls are alot harder then they are on the wii but other then that i think they are the same.

what you could do is if you have a gamestop nearby buy it and if you dont like it you can always return it. or rent it from somewhere.

My brother plays it on the PS2. I don't know about the gameplay on the Wii, but I think it's more simpler and user friendly. Turning the camera angle was a pain the PS2 is one of the only things I remember (I got spooked when a zombie showed up right behind me) =p So..I guess the Wii would be a good choice.

I had the Gamecube version a while back (When it was still exclusive to the platform, hehe), and I must say, it's a really good game. I have not played the Wii version, though.

But if you do get it, look around the environment. There's always creepy things wherever you go. Early in the game, look for a girl with a pitchfork through her face.

Naw, tbh the previous games in the series are scarier than 4 and even they don't scare me that much. The only game in the series I've ever really been scared by was the gamecube remake of the first one.

I love playing horror games for the story and suspense and stuff, however most really don't scare me much.

Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

what i did when the game creeped me out to much (mostly it was my friend screaming beside me. she refused to play it and made me play it because she wanted to see what would happen.) is just take a break and calm down, but sometimes the adrenaline (i guess thats what it would be) you get from those parts help (or at least it helped me). just take it slow and stay calm.
o and use really high powered guns on the chainsaw wielding zombies. running doesnt work (tried it way to many times)

and you can always ask me for help if you get stuck ^_^

Best strategy for taking down chainsaw guys: Shotgun to knock them down, knife him until he gets back up, rinse repeat. If you somehow run out of shotgun shells before he's dead then, just headshot him with the pistol, then kick him, THEN knife him, rinse repeat. Trust me, it's not that hard. :p

It's a pure must have. One of the best games ever...And by far the best Resident Evil
(and that's not easy).

But it's really not as scary as the previous Residents Evils..but it still offers a few scares.

Yes you should definently get it since your buying it on the PS2. It is probably one of the best games for it and it is still fun to play, even if the game is a couple of years old.

Hey i'm sorry if this reply is a little late to some, somebody has been hacking into all my accounts and changing things, my youtube was deleted and my passwords changed on everything except this and facebook so i've had a lot of sorting out to do lol!

Anyway on a happier note, I bought Resident Evil 4 for PS2 yesterday and spent last night playing it and being laughed at on webcam for the looks of "pure terror" on my face - I ended up getting cider out to steady my nerves lol! But it's really fun! So a massive thank you to everyone who's given their opinions and said I should buy it, I love it :D

Thank you so much for that advice - I'm still getting the hang of buttons to use and shizz but i'll deffo try that method! :D

It's definitely a great game, sweetie. It's loads of action with some slight puzzles and it's friendly to those who are new to the Resident Evil story. I would recommend getting the Wii version since you'll get the graphics from the Gamecube version with the extra content from the PS2 version.

If you're interested in more of the Resident Evil back story and would like to scare the pants off of you, I would also recommend getting Resident Evil 1 for Gamecube or the port for Wii.

Enjoy the game sweetie, and tell us what you think. XD
