Comments

So many great games this week but must resist as spent loads at comic con in London. Will definitely try project zero though and see what it is like, also shame it ain't resident evil 4 hd with also added play control of wii more. This pleases my ghost nibbles

...ith fully voiced cut scenes, or skip the fluff and play each stage in order with...

At least they're honest... (I'd say personally that element is probably the worst element of the game. The VA.)

I'd seriously like to know where this Press Release is supposed to be. I've seen several sites with this week's eshop downloads, but the press server has not been updated for a few days...
