Resident Evil 4 for the Nintendo Wii
Resident Evil is a popular survival-horror game by Capcom. Today, we are going to talk about the sixth installment of the franchise, Resident Evil 4.
The game was originally made for the Nintendo Gamecube, but the Playstation 2 got the first glimpse of the game. Since then, the game has been ported to numerous gaming platforms, which includes the PC, Gamecube and Nintendo Wii.
The story takes place when Leon S. Kennedy was tasked to save the president’s daughter, Ashley Graham. Ashley was kidnapped by a cult who happens to be a sinister one because they were turned into monsters.
Leon then travelled into a rural village where the cult resided. He was then greeted by angry and hostile villagers that had pledged allegiance to the cult. The cult’s name is Los Illuminados, which translates to The Enlightened Ones in English.
Leon was then captured while he was in the village and was sent to the Village chief named Bitores Mendez. Mendez then injected a mind-controlling parasite known as the Las Plagas.
After being injected, Leon was then incarcerated along with an ex-researcher for the Los Illuminados, Luis Sera. Both of them worked together to free themselves from captivity, which they ultimately did.
Leon has gathered intel and found out that Ashley was being held captive in a nearby church. Leon went to the church and rescued Ashley and the leader of the cult which goes by the name of Osmund Saddler, finally revealed his plans.
Saddler said that they would use the Las Plagas to control Ashley once she returns to the United States. She will then be instructed to wreak havoc in the country.
Luis, on the other hand, was looking for a way to hamper the progress of the Las Plagas on both Leon and Ashley and he also took a sample of the Las Plagas for further research. Unfortunately, Saddler was quick on his feet and killed Luis before giving the pill that would have severely hampered the Las Plagas’ effects.
It was then later found out that Albert Wesker was the main culprit of it all and was later killed by Leon. After killing Wesker, Ashley was then saved and the Las Plagas was removed from their bodies with the help of a radiotherapeutic device.
Resident Evil 4 for the Nintendo Wii also has the same game mechanics as of other ports. It still has the same third-person, over the shoulder perspective and the game is actually quite exciting to play.
The game also received massive acclaim from both critics and fans alike. It is also a deviation from the previous Resident Evil games in that the story doesn’t revolve around zombies and the Umbrella corporation.
If you have a Nintendo Wii and you’re looking for a great and exciting survival-horror game, then look no further than Resident Evil 4.
