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

 

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.

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles

 

In 2003, Resident Evil Zero was released to many critics' complaints that, while in no way a bad game, the Resident Evil formula had run its course and was becoming an archaic relic of early 3D game development. Capcom, accepting this, reworked the...

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles

 

Some said sticking an old Resident Evil game with few extras on Wii was not good enough, so can this exclusive make up for it?

Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles Review for Wii

 

Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles for Wii Review - If you're not a Resi fan it's worth a rent. If you are it's worth a purchase. Either way you'll have a thoroughly decent blast.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

 

Capcom have finally released the sequel to 2007's Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. As with Umbrella Chronicles, Darkside is an on-rails shooter on the Wii, where you have the option to go through the playable chapters by yourself or join up with...

Co-operative two player ; Utilises the Wii's graphical capabilities ; Characters are better fleshed out ; Finally finding out how Leon knew Krauser ; Well-constructed narrative ; Tofu mode

Shaky camera ; Fewer weapons than Umbrella Chronicles ; Not as challenging as Umbrella Chronicles

While it is brilliant that Capcom have finally given RE2 and RE: Code Veronica the same treatment as the other early games in the Resident Evil franchise, and Leon and Krauser's relationship has been expanded on, Darkside Chronicles seems to lack a lot...

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles [Wii] Review

 

“The virus continues to grow…”

Dark and gritty visuals; Lots to collect; Co-op mode (although limited)

Shakey camera movements don't always add to gameplay; Dialgogue almost always gets drowned out by other sounds; Some gamers may find game-progression too repetitive

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles

 

We're taken right back to the beginning in this arcade style shoot 'em up, which revisits the events of Raccoon City in 1998. This was when we first met Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield amidst the release of the deadly T-virus. It's a mixture of new...

It shouldn't take you long to complete, even with all the different tangents you can follow depending on which direction you go in. But it is fun seeing the original story told from a different angle and shooting zombies, on any platform, never gets...

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles (Capcom)

 

Resident Evil plus solid light-gun action equals 'awesome

Once you beat all the levels, there isn't much reason to play again, camera can be a little frustrating

Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles combines the atmospheric charm of the ResEvil series with awesome light-gun gameplay, then throws in a wealth of bonus material to unlock and discover. It's the perfect way to prepare yourself for the upcoming...

Product Specifications

Grab your gun and make sure you have a healthy supply of ammo - in Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles for Wii, it's going to get ugly. The undead are back for a gruesome installment in the Resident Evil series that puts you on the front-line in the battle against evil like never before. Shedding more light on the downfall of the ill-fated Umbrella Corporation, Umbrella Chronicles is a first-person shooter that lets you take aim at all manner of grisly foes by using the pin-point precision of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. You can also slot the controllers into the Wii Zapper and make the experience even more intense! Cling to your gun for dear life and blast away an army of advancing zombies! The emphasis in Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles is on heart-pounding action, with the game leading you through environments familiar from previous Resident Evil games as well as spectacular new locations. As you make your way down interactive pathways you'll have to choose which route to take and give your trigger finger a thorough workout at every turn. After training your crosshair on the vile creatures blocking your way, you can let loose with everything from submachine guns to rocket launchers - blowing up your surroundings as well as your foes. Umbrella Chronicles also lets a friend join you in two player cooperative mode, so you can double your fire-power whilst getting to the bottom of the secrets behind the Umbrella Corporation. With terror lurking around every corner and familiar characters such as Billy Coen and Carlos Oliveira returning, this is classic Resident Evil - with a dynamic new perspective.
