Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

 

One of Capcom's best franchises is the Resident Evil series. Starting off as a fixed camera horror game, it has seen many sequels and spinoffs, including Wii's Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, an arcade shooter-styled recap of Chris Redfield and...

The Darkside Chronicles is a good game, albeit a difficult one that has a few moments of madness. The story intrigues, offering untold back story for fans but also providing an easy route for non-fans to get up to speed on the tale without playing any...

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Wii Review

 

I have good memories of both Resident Evil 2 and Code Veronica. They were two games in the series that were built around the lumbering zombie as opposed to the faster and more intelligent breed that is the modern living dead. Following on from the...

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

 

Despite existing in a gaming market that has largely abandoned the on-rails shooter, 2007's Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles clearly amassed enough positive feedback (and dollars) for Capcom to offer up Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles....

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles (2009)

 

While Resi fans await with bated breath the arrival of a high-def re-jig of the legendary Resident Evil 2, Capcom somewhat sates their needs with this light gun rendition and sequel to 2007’s Umbrella Chronicles. Encapsulating both Resident Evil 2...

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

 

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles for Wii Review - The Darkside Chronicles lacks the sophistication of the recent Dead Space: Extraction, but it more than makes up for it by bewitching you with nostalgia.

Brainless fun

Annoying camera

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

 

Darkside Chronicles is a fine fit for those enamored with the fiction of the Resident Evil series. It's competent enough as a guided shooter, even if it doesn't do much to improve on the hoary old format.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

 

The only thing scary about this light-gun game is the dreadful shaky camera.

Lengthy campaign with replayability ; Large variety of locations to explore and enemies to fight ; Strong, coherent storytelling

Shaky-cam perspective makes precise aiming nearly impossible ; Overreliance on cheap surprise tactics ; AI partner is absolutely useless ; Second player can't join during the action

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

 

There is no time for the Jill sandwich. The Resident Evil franchise on Nintendo consoles has definitely changed over the last generation. Still what some consider the greatest RE title...

Solid visuals ; Great storytelling ; Lots of fan service

Shaky camera ; Useless AI partner

Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles

 

I am not sure how much more material there is in the Resident Evil Franchise. For every new game with material that expands on the original storyline, there are two or three filler titles that do little more than tell you what happened across town from...

New storyline makes this more than a retread

Gameplay lacks depth ; Forgettable

The light gun genre has had some nice nods on the Wii, but I think there needs to be something more than camera shakes to make them feel immersive. The cinematics here tell a great story, but I need something to pull me into the game. Darkside kept me...
