Hey guys, so I'm seriously considering getting this. I don't own any other copies of it (well, technically my girlfriend has the Wii version, which is good,) but I'd rather play it with a 360 controller. Is the HD port really that bad? Does it handle like RE5 on the 360? What say you, community? WHAT SAY YOU? Also, thanks in advance for your time, I know these arent exactly the most interesting threads.

i didn't think it was that bad at all. there are some seriously messed up textures, but it's fine apart from that. i bought it and it was good for a revisit. i haven't really played it after i beat it, though. they've mapped the shoot/action button from A to X so it plays more like the RE4 control scheme from RE5.

Its a good port, just a lazy one. Get it. I didn't regret it. Loading a nice clean looking version from my XBox dashboard is way better than having to dust off my Wii to play a version that looks like muddy shit. I would also argue that the Wii controls make the game way, way too easy.

I loved it, even though the controls took some getting used to. Its one of my all time favorite games though, so Im probably biased :P (game got 1000 achievement points too if thats your thing)

Sounds pretty tempting, it's the controls that sound the most worrying. The A button to shoot? Sounds a little loony, so it doesn't play exactly like RE5? Wouldn't that be the logical thing to do?

You know you can play the Wii version with a Gamecube controller, if that's your main gripe.

It's still Resident Evil 4, it's just not really HD perse.

nonono, it used to be the A button. now it's the X button. it's like the RE4 control scheme in RE5. apart from that, it controls the same as RE4 always did, if that worries you.

i wouldn't know how difficult it is to go back to RE4 controls from RE5 since i used the RE4 control scheme, but i reckon it doesn't take that long to get back into it.

I got it on a whim, and do not regret it, still a great game and this HD version is pretty damn good.

Trust me, once you get used to it (took me about fifteen minutes) it doesn't feel wrong at all. In fact, it feels pretty good.

I do wish that they had added an unlockable cheat or something that allows you to move and shoot, though. Maybe as a reward for beating the game? Would have been fun to see how much the game changes with that ability though.

Ever played the Wii version? (shivers). Maybe it was just me, but I had a hard time getting used to them. It felt seriously messed up. I switched to a Gamecube controller pretty fast.

There are two control options, one being similar to RE4 where you use the X button to shoot as people have already said, and the other uses the left trigger to pull up the gun and the right trigger to shoot just like RE5, which is the option I would recommend.

Never really cared for the gamecube controller, personally, and would have to dust off and set up the Wii.

Ah, sorry, I misread you. Thanks though.

Well, I think, the response here pretty much speaks for itself. You guys have given me the push in the right direction, I shall take the plunge. I may even purchase it TODAY even, I'm feelin crazy, who knows what I'll do next?

Thanks guys, you all rock.

Does the game have DRM? I don't know if Capcom fully abandoned that after the PSN outage.

You don't need to move and shoot.  The game is designed from the ground up for the player to stop moving, aim and then run and get a better angle.  Otherwise, you know what it would be?  14 hours of running backwards while shooting, just like Borderlands.  Instead it's 14 hours of making the decision whether you should keep attacking or momentarily flee and get a better position.

Man, you were totally right. Well, I'm using the second control scheme, which uses the triggers. Using the left thumbstick to aim was really off putting at first, but I got used it it pretty quick. You forget how good this game is.
