With the Wii reaching the twilight of its popularity, there are a host of great games being remastered and re-released on the console, bringing the tired hardware back into the limelight.
You can't beat a quality survival horror game, and the decade-old Project Zero series is renowned for being one of the best ever made.
Mio and Mayu are twin sisters who get lost in a forest when Mayu wanders off to follow some mysterious red butterflies. They stumble across a village haunted by the tormented souls of the previous residents. It's up to Mayu and her camera obscura (that inflicts damage on ghosts) to get them out of there.
There are no guns, no knives and no leap-out-of-your-seat moments, just a constant feeling of unease and vulnerability.
Project Zero II is one of those genre-defining games, and it looks amazing on the Wii.
But the same console that has breathed new life into the game has also proven to be the ball and chain holding it back from ultimate greatness.
For a game that seemed perfectly suited to the point-and-look nature of the motion sensor and Wii remote, Tecmo have bizarrely opted for tilting the controller in combination with the analogue stick and buttons.
But the same motions can be used for different actions in different situations. This just causes confusion, as a motion that would have had you defending yourself one second can have you running into more danger the next. It takes a long time to come to grips with, but those with plenty of patience will be well rewarded.
