That's the $64,000 question man. I bloody hope so, I've pre-ordered it. I'll be gutted if it blows.

Played it and it's really good; it's the closest thing to an action movie you'll play this year.

Of course it bears no semblance to the original granddaddy of survival horror, but in its place is a kick-ass high octane action adventure.

Is it the 'Resi 4' of the AitD world? If you catch my drift.

You don't need to! It's been designed so you can skip any bits you get stuck on.

So, if you absolutely can't work out what to do next, you skip to the next chapter, and all you lose is some of the story.

That's right, now I remember that being mentioned here before.

I don't think I'll be skipping parts though, if the story is good and pulls me in then I don't think I could.

The Wii version looks worse than Resident Evil 4 so the gameplay better really be better than Resident Evil 4 otherwise I will give it a miss!
