  • Excerpt: Darkside Chronicles is a fine fit for those enamored with the fiction of the Resident Evil series. It's competent enough as a guided shooter, even if it doesn't do much to improve on the hoary old format.

  • Summary: Throughout the years, the Resident Evil series has played host to a number of first-person shooter experiences, some of which were more ill-fated than others. Sticking close to the successful story-driven, on-rails formula it established with 2007's Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, developer...
  • Pros: Lengthy campaign with replayability, Large variety of locations to explore and enemies to fight, Strong, coherent storytelling
  • Cons: Shaky-cam perspective makes precise aiming nearly impossible, Overreliance on cheap surprise tactics, AI partner is absolutely useless, Second player can't join during the action

  • Conclusion: Nostalgia for Resident Evils past will power you through the overwhelming feelings of repetition, and the mechanics are solid, but Darkside Chronicles is still B Team material. Darkside Chronicles isn't a bad game; it's just a lazy one.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Review (WII)

Yet Another Review Site
1 February 2010
  • Excerpt: No, it’s not a Resident Evil/Star Wars crossover… After being chased by rabid undead hordes in Left 4 Dead 2 firing projectiles willy nilly, it’s somewhat comforting to hear the words ‘Aim for the head!’ beckoned from your dunderhead of an ally.
  • Pros: Mood and atmosphere generally improved from the previous instalment, Lengthy story, Graphically impressive and suitable
  • Cons: Frustratingly shaky camera, Petty extras lead to little replay value, Cheap scares bend the rules against players

Test Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles

Generation NT
18 May 2010
  • Conclusion: Resident Evil The Darkside Chronicles est un titre sans surprises. Il ne faudra s'attendre ici qu'à un niveau complètement inédit, le reste étant de l'ordre du déjà-vu. L'intérêt pour ce jeu est assez faible, même si quelques bonnes sensations viennent se faire ressentir ici et là.
  • Pros: Un niveau inédit, Le confort du rail shooter, Nombreux boss, Plus intéressant à deux
  • Cons: Un seul niveau inédit, L'inconfort de la vue "caméra au poing", Le manque de nouveauté, Trop de déjà-vu

  • Conclusion: En définitive, le titre de Cavia se pose comme un rail-shoot pas franchement désagréable mais qui ne restera clairement pas dans les annales. Malgré quelques petites améliorations par rapport à The Umbrella Chronicles, le soft souffre tout de même de trop nombreux défauts pour se révéler...
  • Pros: Des aventures vues sous un nouvel angle, Une prise en main immédiate
  • Cons: Une réalisation pas sensationnelle, La caméra qui tremble trop, Une durée de vie faible

  • Excerpt: Portant bien haut l'étendard de la société vidéoludique la plus écolo de la planète, Capcom milite activement pour le recyclage de ses licences et ce depuis de nombreuses années. De fait, si la série des Gun Survivor n'a jamais eu bonne presse, la société japonaise avait malgré tout réussi à faire...
