Resident Evil 4 (Wii)
Advantages: Satisfying shooting. Perfectly paced. Full of content.
Disadvantages: You're reading this review when you could be playing it.
This may be the best game I've ever played and I've been playing games instead of going to cool parties or meeting women for a long, long time.
You play as Leon, an agent who has been hired to track down the president's daughter, last spotted in some mysterious village. The game begins with you arriving in the village and within minutes your partners are dead, the bridge out of town has been destroyed and you've sealed yourself in a house, all the villagers desperately trying to break in and kill you. That's when you hear the revving of a chainsaw...
Incredibly, the game keeps this pacing and constant threat of danger throughout the twelve hours at least main campaign. One minute you're fighting invisible acid spitting creatures in a sewer, the next you're fighting a seemingly endless swarm off enemies on a mine cart that is speeding towards a chasm.
No other game keeps your adrenalin going like a few hours with Resident Evil 4.
The shooting is satisfying, you have to stop to shoot but that only increases the tension and enhances the gameplay. The adventure is full of little details and hidden secrets and you will replay this. This is one of those rare games where once you finish it you instantly want to start it again.
The Wii controls probably make this the best version of the game to date. Control is smooth and never frustrating on the other consoles too, but aiming is easier and somewhat more satisfying with the Wii's motion controls, making this the first and last time I ever praise the Wii's motion controls.
The horror is where people say this game is lacking. Many argue that this is the entry that destroyed the scares in the Resident Evil franchise. These people clearly don't remember the latter half of the game, which has some of the most horrifying boss fights in any game you'll ever play. Then there are the regenerators, enemies that can regrow limbs that make a noise which is probably what people speak like in hell. This game won't just make you jump, it'll show you horrors that will stay with you.
If you're looking for the perfect action adventure game, look no further.
Summary: Buy this game.
