Resident Evil 4 has been ported yet again, this time to Nintendo Switch. How does this latest version measure up against all the others?
The Wii version of RE4 is the best because it has motion controls? Does that mean the PS3 version of RE5 is the best because it has Move functionality?
It's because the Wii controls help substantially with aiming since this is a lead-footed shooter.
No they didn't it was clunky as hell. It is far easier to aim accurately with dual analog sticks than the shitty wavey wii mote at the time. I guess you either never played it on the Wii or only played it on the Wii
The motion controls made that game amazing though. I am sure RE5 was even better with Move functionality as well. But that's for a different article since we are talking about 4. I mean what is so great about the PS4 version of RE4 over the Wii one at the end of the day? Higher resolution, sure. Some more solid frame rate, yes. But it's not like it's still not using the same original assets, Blocky and all. So why not take the one that feels the best when it comes down to controlling it?
1) not everyone likes or prefers motion control, 2) the game looks a LOT better on PS4/PC than the Wii, especially for someone playing on a large TV
@Myst - yeah I think if the Switch version had the Wii motion controls it would definitely been the better choice.
There is no best version of res 5 as it sucks on all formats. Res 4 is best on wii. its as if the game was designed for the wii and ported other consoles. I got an imported version of res4 months before it released in the UK, for the gamecube and played it to death. I remember feeling special having it before anyone else in my area, I have good memories of res4. I've played most versions and wii leaves the others in the dust.
Well I don't care for part 5 as a game so I never tried the move options but I did enjoy 4's game world so I did play it again on the Wii and it is my favorite version.
i had on gamecube and the controls were great too
Switch version is the best, good luck lugging a whole PS4/XB1 around to play it while you're out and about.
Sometimes people don't like to play when they're out and about. Hence, they're out and about. PC version is the best technically. I had most fun with the Wii version due to the motion controls.
Well the PC version has got to be the best then right? I can play it on my laptop if I wanted to when I am out and about at a higher resolution and framerate.
I am oldschool, controller is fine for my simple gaming tastes. Fine with it on the X1X. Not into handhelds and did not like the motion controls at all so nothing to lug around.
What a load of donkey crap. I played the Wii version it was actually one of the few games I finished on it before I sold it and bought a PS3. And at the time I remember thinking I would prefer to play it with dual thumbsticks. It looked like utter shit in comparison to the 360 andcPS3 versions. This guy is delusional
The PC version should be the best version
The worst thing about the wii version is that its too damn easy, headshots galore
I really liked the Wii controls for the game. Actually I think gyro controls are amazing when used properly. They really help in BotW and RE Revelations on Switch. Unfortunately my Wii is stored in a chest, but I have the PS3 and PS4 versions on hand. Playing through the series at the moment as I realised I only ever finished RE2.
I grabbed RE 4 on PS3 when it was on sale honestly found it with the dualshock 3 kinda clunky so I grabbed it on XB1 when it was on sale and I prefer it better on the XB1. I am tempted to grab it on the Wii since it's cheap on Ebay.
