Summary: resident evil archives is the re-release of the first resident evil to be on the original gamecube.looks well and has wiimote and nunchuck support, no motion just the buttons. anyways other than that its the same, the original costing too much now a days this is a good alternative.
Summary: I can't fathom why this game is getting so many bad reviews. It's amazing. The graphics are breathtaking from the very get go. The mansion looks amazing! A big change from the very first Resident Evil (although that was a classic despite it all). I've never played the gamecube version of this but I've heard people complain that the Wii version is the same.
Summary: Admittedly, when I played the original version of this game on the Playstation YEARS ago, I can't say that I really appreciated it. It was Resident Evil 4 that made me a fan of the series and Umbrella Chronicles that made me appreciate the storyline of the past games. Why, then, would I purchase and enjoy the remake/Gamecube port of the drastically different first game?
Summary: So this game is almost exactly like Resident Evil 1. You still have trouble seeing enemies coming at you down the other end of the hallway. There are puzzles everywhere, and only limited inventory space, and limited ammo. They did some things right though. The graphics are obviously much better. They got rid of the terrible acting job of the original and even managed to alter the set up of the mansion just a little.
Excerpt: Resident Evil Archives is a remake of the original 1996 Playstation Resident Evil. This new version was released by Capcom in 2008 and is for over 15's. It is a single player game without online capability. Prices vary quite significantly from place to place so shop around, I got a used copy (like new) from Ebay for around £13 including delivery. There are a couple of cover designs including the one in the picture.
Summary: If your a fan of the original resident evil then this is a must buy. New areas, new bosses, new puzzles and improved graphics. The only downside is that its in 4:3 aspect ratio rather than widescreen however this doesnt effect gameplay too much.
Excerpt: Great game would have got 5 stars if the graphics was updated but they still pretty good. Recommended to play on 26 HD screen with component cables. Expands the original resident evil to a whole new level with its extra story weaved in to it. Wicked classic game a must own for any wii owner!
Pros: Challenging, Easy To Learn, Engaging Story Line, Gameplay, Graphics
