Famitsu offered their first reviews on the Resident Evil 4 for the Wii in its latest issue, which just hit the magazine shelves today in Japan.
Of the 4 review scores given, two editors gave the game a 10/10. The other two were still lovin’ the Wii version enough to give it a 9/10.
The reviewers said that even though the content is almost the same as the GameCube title, the Wii-mote controls are to the games advantage, making the game feel like something fresh and different. One reviewer said that the game offers the feeling of being closer to the action as well as upping the tension.
Multiple reviewers agreed on two points, that the new controls are simple and easy to get into, and that even those who played the original will be able to enjoy themselves.
Release Date: June 19th, 2007
