Excerpt: I have good memories of both Resident Evil 2 and Code Veronica. They were two games in the series that were built around the lumbering zombie as opposed to the faster and more intelligent breed that is the modern living dead.
Excerpt: Remember when the licker first tried to eat Leon's face in Raccoon City Police Department? That's in The Darkside Chronicles. Remember when the giant crocodile tried to bite Claire's head off in the sewers? That's in The Darkside Chronicles. Remember those tentacles on the train?
Conclusion: In short, this is a good game, especially for fans with fond memories of classic Resident Evil titles and/or old-school light-gun games, and for those who liked The Umbrella Chronicles and want more of the same.

29 December 2009
Excerpt: I shouldn’t have played this game so quickly after Dead Space Extraction . Dead Space brought such a new twist on rail shooters (light gun games), that Darkside Chronicles seems quite common by comparison. This isn’t entirely fair, though, because it’s still a great game.
Pros: Outstanding graphics, excellent flow, cinematic presentation, solid boss battles.
Cons: Some of the acting and dialog is annoying, shooting pictures and lights gets tedious, can leave you hanging without the right weapon.
