Not the best in the series

J. Kweder, Amazon
7 May 2015
  • Summary: Not the best in the series, but certainly fun to play on Wii. Good enough storyline, but if you came for graphics, keep moving, not the system you should be playing anyway.

Better Than RE0

Opah Jorge, Amazon
25 May 2013
  • Summary: This remake has better visuals and sound quality than ReZero, despite the opposite having been said, thus making this game more entertaining and more classic/interesting to play, too.

Decent...

Brian M. Paramo, Amazon
28 March 2013
  • Summary: If you've never played this before, you'll hate this game. But, its "tank controls" were part of the allure back in the day, not being able to run-and-gun, was a refreshingly scary...or scarily refreshing?

Do not buy if you have played the Game Cube Remake

J. C. Merino "hadex", Amazon
6 May 2009
  • Summary: This is the all-time classic Resident Evil with better graphics and more content than the original release from the PSX. The bad thing about this Wii port of the Gamecube remake is that there are no changes at all.

A remake of the original Resident Evil

  • Excerpt: The first Resident Evil to come out was very good. Now I look back on it, I think, whoa the graphics were bad and the rooms/maps were not that good, but hey, it was a great story and it still makes me jump every now ad then. Now this remake, whoa, that really scares the hell outta me.
  • Pros: Graphics, Sounds, Enemies, Visual Effects
  • Cons: Hard, Too many enemies, Hunters (too many)

Resident Evil is the same great game it was...identical in fact..

Eisbreche..., Ciao
17 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Resident Evil Archives is a repackaged Gamecube game that was itself a completely remade version of the original Resident Evil for the Sony Playstation. Yes, I know…it sounds like a poor attempt by Capcom to cash in on the Wii’s success by releasing it to a wider audience to generate sales.
  • Pros: Same great plot, gameplay, graphics and music .
  • Cons: Identical and for twice the price because it is on one disc .

Should have been left on the Gamecube

Waldor, Amazon
27 June 2009
  • Summary: I hoped they had done a bit more with this, especially with the controls. I find using the nunchuck to move around really hard work. Yes its the same basic game, and thats what it is supposed to be, but I was more than capable of buying the gamecube version and using the gamecube controller would...
