Resident Evil 4: Wii edition, known in Japan as Biohazard 4: Wii edition (バイオハザード4 Wii edition, Baiohazādo Fō: Wii edition), is a port of Resident Evil 4 for the Wii. The story follows Leon S. Kennedy, who is sent on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the President's daughter, who has been kidnapped by a mysterious cult. Traveling to a rural village in Europe, he encounters a horde of violent villagers who pledge their lives to the cult.
Unlike previous games in the series, Resident Evil 4 has stronger focus on combat, with many more enemies to deal with. As such, it uses a new third person, over the shoulder combat system for easier aiming. Other changes to the game include context sensitive actions to interact with the environment, and quick-time event cutscenes.
RE4: Wii Edition introduces Wii Remote based aiming controls to the series, allowing for mouse-keyboard style shooting. The Wii edition also features all the additional content from other platforms, with several new side missions, minigames, new costumes, and a movie browser.
Controller Map Overlap
Resident Evil 4: Wii edition is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes. If a physical controller is set to emulate both a GameCube Controller and a Wii Remote concurrently, it will operate both devices at the same time. To fix, migrate controls to use separate physical controllers.
There are no reported problems with this title.
Setting IR to values beside 1x causes some textures, water in particular, to glitch out once you enter the menu / map / item screen. This is due the game changing resolutions.
At higher resolutions, certain blur effects will be much weaker. While this doesn't impact the gameplay whatsoever, it can cause some weapons effects to look weaker.
