I actually already bought it, it was an impulse grab and I had a giftcard. I liked it on playstation - is the Gamecube version any good?

I bought it for the GCN when it first came out (never played the PS version before) ... I personally liked it, but having to gather up "typewriter reels" in order to save your progress got to be excruciatingly frustrating.

Then, once "Eternal Darkness" came out, I forgot all about the game and now it's collecting dust next to "Wave Race" and "Luigi's Mansion" ... I never did get very far in that game either (I think I got as far as finding the second mask that triggers to coffin to lower from the ceiling?). Meh, maybe once I get through all the new GCN games I bought for Christmas, perhaps I'll go back and give it another try.

I am looking forward to the release of RE4, however ...

    If you ever liked Resident Evil, it's definitely worth the $20. The graphics are incredible, the atmosphere is over-the-top, and it's honest to goodness scary quite a few times. It's not quite the same game - they changed a few things up to fuck with you.

    I can't really get into it, however, because of those absolutely atrocious RE controls. Up is supposed to mean you walk towards the top of the screen, not in the direction you're facing. You can't retrain people who've been using those controls since The Legend of Zelda.

    I ended up returning the game. You were right, Fuzyz, those damned controls pissed me off.

    Word. It's just not worth it. Why the heck don't they fix those darned things?
    I was worried Metroid Prime would use the same whacked-out control system, but my fears were unfounded, thank God.

    The controls are horrid, but the game is mega-awesome.

    I personally think it's a lot better that the PSX version. The new villians and areas thrown into the mix are fun, and the addition of the "Crimson Head" zombies are sweet.
