Excerpt: Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles follows the events that led to the downfall of the Umbrella Corporation, as detailed in the Resident Evil games up until Resident Evil 4 (and yes, unfortunately that does mean there are no levels based on Resident Evil 4 here). It’s basically a recap of some of the key events in Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, and briefly mentions Resident Evil 2.
Excerpt: In 2003, Resident Evil Zero was released to many critics’ complaints that, while in no way a bad game, the Resident Evil formula had run its course and was becoming an archaic relic of early 3D game development. Capcom, accepting this, reworked the forthcoming Resident Evil 4 into the game that reached the GameCube a few years later to universal acclaim from all but the most staunchest supporters of the ‘old Resis’…
Conclusion: My first month in Championship Manager gives a fairly accurate description of the rest of the game. My drastically changed team fulfilled the club's 09/10 season promise: a promotion to the Premier League where I subsequently got mashed and ended up in the lower regions. Next season, I aim to strengthen my team so that I can finish in the top half of the league. Failure to accomplish this will be on my shoulders entirely.
Excerpt: Never let it be said that Capcom doesn't try to look after its hardcore fans. Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles will have every Resident Evil fan salivating at the mouth, twitching in anticipation and experiencing all those other bodily reactions we go on about when we're excited about a game. It's a shame then that while UC is decent fun and one of the better-looking titles on the Wii it feels as if it could have been a whole lot better.
Excerpt: I rarely have anything negative to say about Capcom. They have been behind a good percentage of my favorite games of all time, and nearly everything with Capcom on the box is at least worth renting, if not buying. My one complaint with the company is that in the years since Resident Evil hit the PS1, they’ve released a ton of remakes, spin-offs and ”Hey… remember how great this game was?” self-congratulatory nods at the original classic.
