Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles


$50.00 Released November, 2007

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Tons of content. 2-player co-op. Compatible with the Wii Zapper.

The Cons:Critical shots are hard to pull off. Resident Evil 2 and 4 are missing. Selecting weapons is annoying.

Set in the universe of Resident Evil, Umbrella Chronicles follows the heroes and heroines of Resident Evil 0, 1, and 3 as they battle the sinister creations of the Umbrella corporation. Played entirely in first person, Umbrella Chronicles is a shooter that is entirely on rails (think House of the Dead).

 Occasionaly you have the choice of veering off the beaten path, breaking down doors and finding alternate routes will ultimately be beneficial. Many of the objects in the game are breakable, concealing files, health, or ammunition. The files are the major draw of the game, giving fans of the series more back story and facts about their favorite games. All of the guns in the game are upgradable...for a cost. You must sacrifice a number of your stars (recieved after completing a mission) to upgrade the weapon. Some upgrades increase ammo capacity, while others increase damage, blast radius, or reload speed.

Special K
Special K: #resident_evil_the_umbrella_chronicles This game is fun....but it was definately a disapointment after playing Resident Evil 4 on the Wii. The sense of accomplishment and overall enjoyment of the game just doesn't cut it. I would almost even go as far as saying this game isn't even as fun as Links Crossbow training, which is IMMENSLY fun to master.

They were VERY close to an excellent game with Umbrella Chronicles, but the accuracy, fear factor and enjoyable story line just aren't there. Fun....but could be better. Jul 6, 08
