Gamertell Review: Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil for Wii

31 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Capcom’s Wii re-release of Resident Evil has met with a lot of criticism. This is probably justified. Gamers are a passionate lot who develop intense devotion to their franchises.
  • Pros: It’s
  • Cons: Antiquated controls, full frame presentation, overpriced for a nearly 15-year-old game

E3 2009: Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles Hands-on Impressions

2 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Our first look of Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles came during Captivate 09. The second time around featured the same demo, but we were able to go hands-on with the title, and the time spent was filled to the brim with zombie fun.

  • Conclusion: Having multiple control options, not having to change out tiny discs midway through the game, and having better audio are definitely pluses, but I don’t think they are big enough improvements to merit picking up this title if you already own the GameCube version.

  • Excerpt: Without getting into yet another gripe about how Nintendo has pandered to the casual market, there is something that feels inherently wrong about the developers’ recent commissioning of repackaged Gamecube titles.

22 July 2009
  • Excerpt: At times like this it's best not to ask too many questions and just be thankful for what you're given. But one or two refuse to lie down. Like, why have we got another version of Resident Evil on a Wii disc instead of via Virtual Console?

Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil [Wii] Review

16 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Even though this is a remake, do not be instantly put off, as it promises new rooms, items, areas and creatures that have yet to be seen by new players and fanatics alike. To add to this, there is the proposal of 10, yes 10, alternative endings to the game, depending on what decisions and turns you...
  • Pros: Tension and atmosphere is apparent, Good storyline to follow, Multiple endings allow for more replay value
  • Cons: Confusing controls, Dialogue is a little monotonous, Not enough chances to save game
