What do you mean by the zombie thing??? But Resi Evil 4 on Wii is great, probably better than on GC. Don't know about Umbrella Chronicles.
>Omen<;4762303I played RE4 on my P4 3Ghz, X1950Pro 512MB, 2GB RAM spec, which is AGP platform using XP SP3. I was able to play it pretty well with the Mouse Aim and KBReplacer mods which give you full adjustable sensitivity mouse control and full KB mapping, including the dodge hints showing onscreen with the keys you've mapped to.
I also added the Texture Patch 2.0 mod, which goes well beyond what the developer patch does to improve textures. They're basically as high res as the ones the Nintendo GameCube uses, except for the cutscenes, which are noticeable blurrier.
The game is designed for gamepad controls though and all RE games have no strafe too. Thus the movement is slow and awkward and the mouse look even with the mod a bit clumsy and hard to pinpoint your aim with. Despite that I really enjoyed the game though and played through it several times.
That being said, I did try playing with my Xbox gamepad and IMHO it plays no better that way. It's just a matter of what your used to. In a nutshell, using the Mouse Aim mod allows you to play with equal precision to what a gamepad offers, rather than having the usual greater precision a mouse offers.
My honest opinion is if you don't have a GameCube, play it on PC, esp if you have one with spec a bit beyond the game's hardware requirements so you can play with the Texture Mod.
I was thinking of getting it for the PC, but the keyboard only control really put me off it, but i guess if theirs a mod i might pick it up cheap somewhere, I'd like to see how much my PC could handle.

The PC version is NOT KB only. Like I just said above, you can use KB/M (Mouse Aim and KBReplacer mods recommended), or with gamepad. If by chance it doesn't recognize the gamepad you use just use Xpadder, it works great and is free.
Oh right, i must of heard wrong then, but the mouse aim can't be fantastic if you recommend a mod of it, and i hate using game pad's might as well get a console if i wanted to do that.
If I had to rate each of them, this is what I'd say:
Resident Evil 4 10/10 A great thriller with plenty of twists and thrills along the way. Fun no matter what console you play it on.
Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles 8/10 Great reply value, and plenty of added fun with the "Wii Zapper", or "Wii Mote". Though great, it does have its problems with aiming, graphics etc., and, some people might get slightly bored with it overtime.
Both great games, both worth a look.

If you're used to games that are written well for mouse control, you'll struggle with it. However if you've played poorly ported PC games that are based on analog mini toggles of gamepads, it's not any harder than playing those with KB/M or using a gamepad. In other words the aim is only precise enough if you turn the mouse sensitivity of the Mouse Aim mod all the way down, and then the aim becomes as slow as using the mini toggles, only you're using a mouse instead. I have been able to get ALL the bottle caps in the shooting gallery side games though, and that's with the TMP sub machine gun with NO stabilizer, a squirrelly weapon to fire at best.
A trick you can use is to help move the aim quicker with the W,A,S,D keys. In this way you get both quick aim and precise targeting when using the lowest mouse sensitivity. This is possible because Leon can't move whilst aiming, something RE has always had and part of the horror aspect. The only problem really is the laser dot of the weapon doesn't want to move much when you stop it near dead center, which I believe is due to the dead zone of the mini toggles the control set was designed for. It can feel like the movement of the laser dot is sticky when trying to fine tune it.
If you've never played RE before it's hard to explain why clunky movement and aiming not really a big problem. Basically it's a zombie game and you don't really need to move and aim fast. Also, you can make Leon run, so if in doubt you just run to a spot where you can take your time to turn around and aim. You can also do quick 180 turns like I said above. Leon can do melee moves too, which saves ammo. Common ways to kill are shooting an enemy in the foot or knee, then he'll be able to kick them or suplex them depending on the type of enemy it is. You can do a lot of killing with just kicks and suplex moves and you can also take out lots of enemies at once with grenades and molotovs.
Believe me, I absolutely hate poorly ported games that have a console feel to them and have no skill at all with gamepads, yet I adapted to this game with the mods mentioned and liked it enough to play it all the way through several times, a couple times on Pro mode. Truth be told there are lots of powerful weapon upgrades in the game and you'll have lots of money to buy them, esp if you scavenge. It's possible to dispatch even boss enemies in seconds. If you're good at all at shooters, this is a game you have to play in certain ways just to get enough challenge. The Verdugo however, my fave enemy, can be frustrating if you don't use the rocket launcher. I have killed him without it though on the lowest difficulty level.

RickyL;4762406What do you mean by the zombie thing???
She's probably referring to the fact that she doesn't like undead and/or unearthly things in her games. Many people don't seem to like that kind of stuff either because they are too sqeaumish, too prone to easy scares or something else like that.
