The controls on the PC side is its only down fall i think...(if you look at it from a keyboard/mouse POV). The rest looks great as people are making it better and better with mods, but i played/finished the game using the official patch which added a huge improvement. The mods include things like better movie quality, high texture, etc..I think Wii might be a bit more...fun with its controlling system.

Yup RE2 was my favorite too, although I never played RE4, I played the hell out of 1-3.

I played one and two and that was it... until 4 on the PC, which I haven't really gotten into yet.

As for the topic, I don't really like the Wii... tried it at a friends. Seemed overly sensitive and gimmicky, but maybe you get used to it over time. Of course, the PC version is analog stick only... so neither is ideal.

Well, it looks like I let fate decide what I bought.

I decided on getting the Wii version. Last night I went to best buy, Gamestop , and lastly EB Games. ALL were sold out of Resident Evil 4 for the Wii. EB games had the PC version, so I just went ahead and bought it anyway. I'm very impatient.

RE4 is the best by far of the series, but of the "classic" (that is PSX) RE games, 2 stands out as the best. I suppose it's no small coincidence they share main characters.

Tiger - this game is so good it doesn't really matter which platform you pick it up for. I'm sure you'll love the PC version. Personally though, I feel this kind of game just begs to be played on a TV with a console controller. Maybe it's just me but the aesthetic and atmosphere seems more genuine that way. I just got my Wii copy this morning (having the same problem as you with local retailers). Once I get home from work I plan on spending some quality time with it this weekend.

Wii, hands down.

Wii has true 16:9, using Gamecube build, Wiimote feature and PS2 extras. GC is great but not true 16:9, no wiimote and no PS2 extras.

PC... well, I have one and I didn't like it. Game itself is great of course but controls aren't great so you need to find mouse mod and patch it up for better graphics but that doesn't look as good as GC or Wii build. There's a lot of mods that enhances texture, etc.

So, I say, get Wii edition.
