Kotaku: Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Review: Three's A Welcome Trend

Kotaku writes: "The Year of the Wii Lightgun Shooter continues with a Resident Evil entry that is two-thirds fun retro, never scary yet surprisingly generous. Too bad it makes a poor first impression.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles is a follow-up to 2007's Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. Both Wii games are lightgun takes on gaming's most famous horror series. The first presented Resident Evils 0, 1 and 3 in an on-rails shooting-gallery format. The new game remakes Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica, wrapped with a short new pre-Resident Evil 4 adventure called Operation Javier. All three scenarios star returning Resident Evil icons - Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy, Redfield and Steve Burnside, Kennedy and Jack Krauser - allowing a player to pick one to control or to have a friend shoot as the other one."

The story is too old to be commented.

best rail shooter on the wii.

Buy this over dead space extraction. Extraction is short and has zero replay value. Darkside chronicles has loads of extras and it's pretty long. I bought it last night and i'm really enjoying it, especially the re2 levels. I really enjoy the new approach to it. Of course some elements have changed but it still retains the overall look from the psx game. Plus the graphics are top notch. I hate the saying, "looks good for a wii game" but the game looks really good. Better than 90% of the garbage that's on the wii.
