Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Wii Review

Console Obsession
28 May 2010
  • 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. Following on from the trend set by Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, The Darkside Chronicles is a combination of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica, as well as the events leading up to Resident Evil 4.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Review

Cheat Code Central
31 March 2010
  • 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. It's a full-price Wii title, which might sound obscene for a rail shooter with a refurbished story, but it provides a long campaign with zombie-slaying galore, plenty of replay value, and an entertaining multiplayer experience.

  • Excerpt: Hearing about another light-gun game for Wii isn’t always the most exciting news. While the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles get endless streams of AAA titles from the canons of their favorite franchises, most Wii owners are left with quick cash-ins and side stories. With the success of Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, it is, therefore, no surprise to see Capcom churn out another on-rails shooter in hopes of satiating fans.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

Game Over Online
15 December 2009
  • Excerpt: It’s Like... …a Resident Evil shooter that isn’t very scary but a fun game nonetheless. A title that fills in the missing plotlines from its predecessor, Umbrella Chronicles, in addition to shedding light on the characters of Resident Evil 2 fame: Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy. The story switches between the scenarios, Operation Javier, Memories of a Lost City, and Game of Oblivion.

(Wii Review) Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

The Entertainment Depot
11 December 2009
  • Summary: Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles is a satisfying shooter and a real treat for fans of the franchise. Weapon customization, titles, and alternate paths all offer a great deal of replayability. The bobbling camera, however, while cinematic, is capable of inducing nausea or migraines on susceptible players, so be warned. The cinematic camera work can also lead to some cheap shots, which are a little too frequent, and boss encounters that are a little frustrating.

  • Excerpt: The Resident Evil franchise is one of my favorites of all time. After playing through this year’s stellar Resident Evil 5 , I was reminded just how much I loved the series. Once I heard that the sequel to the Wii shooter Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles was going to take place during two of the best games in the series, I couldn’t wait to play it.

Wii Review - 'Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles'

WorthPlaying
3 December 2009
  • Summary: Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles' story is based on Resident Evil 2 and includes Leon S. Kenney and Claire Redfield. Its on-rails style gameplay and active camera will create a more immersive "Chronicles" survival experience. As in the last installment, this is a first-person game with extreme shooting gameplay and interactive pathways.

  • Summary: Yes...let the T-Virus flow through you!
  • Pros: Beautiful, technically impressive game, Bouncing zombie boobs?, Co-op is fun and eases the challenge, Fills in the story blanks left by Umbrella Chronicles, adding another new chapter to the saga
  • Cons: Bouncing zombie boobs?, Much harder than Umbrella due to the shaky-cam and strict boss fights, Not as much environmental mayhem, Upgrading your guns takes forever
