Better Than RE0

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. I am a fan, so how can you beat replaying a retouched version of the nostalgic survival horror classic, getting to experience more of the best parts of the original again in a different way? Some things might be frustrating, but at least the pace is much better than the $&!@ that was Zero.
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?
Summary: The controls are strange since forward on the control stick is always the character's forward. Which means the character could be walking down, up, right or left depending on which way they're facing. Which is VERY counter intuitive. Also to save your game you need to find two items. Not just a save point, in this case a typewriter, but you also need to find ink for it.
Summary: The only other Resident Evil games I have ever played are Servivor, and RE3 both for the Sony Playstation. I loved Servivor, its one of my favorite games, but In RE3 I just could not get use to the controlls where you press side to side to rotate your charitor and up to move in the directon you are facing, and it was kind of hard to aim. I was really disapointed to dicover that Resident Evil Archive has the same controlls as RE3, and it seems a little harder to aim.
Do not buy if you have played the Game Cube Remake

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. The controls for this port have not been upgraded, which is a big letdown since I expected controls like RE 4. Because of that, the controls feel very dated, and you'll probably need a classic (or Gamecube) controller to enjoy playing this game.
Conclusion: Being a fan of resident evil- i was keen to get archives on the wii-there is no doubt that the graphics are fab the atmosphere superbly spooky etc, but i did struggle a lot with the controls , which was a shame as it ruined my experience.I would still recommend this game though, and despite the control issue i will still persevere with it
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 probably be a bit easier as well. So best left on the old console if you ask me. Now RE5 using the RE4 wii game engine, thats what I really want to see !
Summary: This is a re-release of the classic Gamecube remake of RESIDENT EVIL, this time though it is for the Wii with improved motion sensor controls and aiming. When this was first released originally back in 2002 I played this game to death, being a massive fan of the original on the Playstation in 1996.
Excerpt: INTRO Supongo que no es necesario hablar mucho sobre la saga de resident evil, ya que de la misma manera supongo que muchos de vosotros ya habréis oído hablar de ella, ya sea en los vidiojuegos o en el cine esta saga de matar monstruos ha llegado muy lejos y de hecho se puede decir que sigue siendo el juego franquicia de capcom.
