Just like the zombies in the games themselves, Capcom has resurrected its gun survivor franchise and has unleashed Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles on unsuspecting Wii owners. The last gun survivor game here in the US came out in 2003 (RE: Dead Aim) and was actually a pretty decent offing. Umbrella Chronicles turns Resident Evil 0, REmake (the Gamecube version of Resident Evil 1), and RE3 into light gun games, and throws in an all-new location to boot. This is one nostalgic trip down blood soaked memory lane for Resident Evil fans. But people just looking for a good time will find it here as well. RE: UC takes players on a nostalgic filled trip through ... Read the complete review

-Please note that the following review may contain spoilers- Umbrella chronicles in an 'on rails' shooting game which means that your characters will follow a set route and your job is to kill anything that gets in the way. Most of the enemies are creatures that have been featured in previous resident evil games, so if you are familiar with the series, you can expect to enjoy a degree of nostalgia. To complete this task, you have access to a range of weapons which can be switched at any time. A simple pistol for which you have infinite ammo, and the more powerful weapons such as shotguns, machine guns, grenade launchers, and magnums which have ... Read the complete review

I recently bought a few Resident Evil games I had yet to try from Amazon. The Umbrella Chronicles for the Nintendo Wii console cost me around £7 used including delivery which I thought was a good price especially as the used copy I got appeared brand new. This was released in 2007. The game has an age rating of 15 as if contains violence. Not all of the levels are 2 player, but selected levels can be played by 2 people although I am yet to try this out and have only played single player. You will need a nunchuck controller as you will need to use both hands to control the game. This was the first Resident Evil I had played on the Wii and ... Read the complete review

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles is a 2007 rail shooter released for the Nintendo Wii. It explores the events of classic survival zombie horror titles Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil I, and Resident Evil III, as well as touching briefly on Resident Evil II. The player assumes the roles of myriad classic characters from the franchise, including Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Ada Wong, and, for the first time ever... brace yourself, Albert Wesker. I didn't know anyone who played through Resident Evil I without wondering what it would be like to see the events through Wesker's standard-issue Umbrella sunglasses, and now you can. The player ...

An exclusive Resident Evil for the Wii? Indeed it turned out to be so, Resident Evil fans may be aware that spin-offs from the main series are in general, terrible. I was overjoyed upon finding out that Umbrella Chronicles is indeed, not just better than all spin-offs but is also, in my opinion, better than some of the games in the main series, despite being an on-rails shooter, contrasting sharply with the other Resident Evil games. I find it important to point out that Capcom has made this as a 'love letter' to fans, specifically the die hard Wesker fans, who (believe me) are numerous. Frustrated with previous lack of ability to play as Wesker, Resident Evil 4 changed . Read the complete review
