I liked Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles a lot, but after finishing it, I had no desire to play a sequel. It worked for what it was, but there was nothing about the game that made me want to see more, so when Capcom announced Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, I was pretty underwhelmed. My gut reaction was that it just didn't feel like a game that needed to be made.
Still, this is Resident Evil we're talking about. Other than the Outbreak games, which were of questionable quality, the series is yet to fail me. Plus, mining material from Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica is sure fire way to tickle my nostalgia bone. With both my initial disinterest and my always present love of the RE franchise, I gave Darkside Chronicles a spin.
