    Please help me, I desided to get RE4 because I want to know the background story (If any) it gives to the upcoming RE5. I loved the RE games, played 1 and 2 and liked them a lot and now I want 4.

    Now the question is: Which one should I get, the PS2 version or the GC version?

    I heared that the the PS2 had a ton of fetures but the GC had better grafics. Can you guys tell me which is better? Thanks

    The gamecube had better texturing but if you didn't pay any attention you could not see any difference. I would say get the wii version if possible because of the conrolles but if I were you, Get the PS2 version as being a vtran of the series, you would probably get a bit out of Separate Ways.
    As you are probably aware though, RE4 and 5 are drastically different games to what the previous ones were so consider yourself warned.

    that's what I heard, it's sopose to have better lighting affects and a spookyer (is this a word) atmosphere.

    Didn't the PS2 version have more fetures? Yes, I know it is a TPS over-the-shoulder game. I loved it, I like TPSOTS (wow) games and especally RE$, I played a little wile I was visiting my friend's friend's house. He was getting his game back and wile I waited he said I could play. It was very fun wile it lasted.

    I really wouldn't call the game spooky except for a couple of selected moments but I wont say where because that would ruin the game.

    The Wii version has the features from the PS2 version + the graphics from the GC version + better controls.

    hey, I got another question, if I get the GC version and then play it on my friend's Wii. Will it have the
    Wii controls or the same GC controls?

    If it's the GC version then it'll have the GC controls.

    If you can't get the wii one, you should get the ps2 one cause from what I remember theres some extra bonus items and costumes. I also think the Ada Mission is a mode only for the ps2 one so awesome.

    Does RE4 have multiplayer or co-op, Online or just support?

    RE4 does not have multiplayer but it can still be played at parties. Just play Mercenaries mode and swap the controller after each death. It is always a hit.

    PS2 if you must play it. Personally, I don't care for the game at all.

    If you can live without the extra stuff I go with GC. It plays better & has better loading times.

    Also about which controller you prefer, I personally can't stand any playstation controller and I actually like the GC one while most think the opposite.

    The Wii version is the best, but you don't have that one.

    I'd go for the GameCube version. The graphics don't differ that much, but it's noticable and the GC version is really more beautiful.

    Also. the controls have been designed for the GameCube controller. I have played RE4 on the PS2, and the controls sucked after playing the GameCube version.

    I bought the Wii version for the extras, and I have to admit I enjoyed them a lot, but they were a bit short. If you want to play the game optimally, get the GC version. If you want to play all of the extras, get the PS2 version.
