Oh yeah...I rented the first one of these on the Wii a while back. It wasn't great.

I love it whenever Patrick sees a spider. SEE Uncharted 3 quick look!

Posted by algertman

I'm going to say this probably plays better on the Wii.

Posted by jozzy

Doesn't look that HD to me..

Resident Evil 5 was a great game, sorry not everyone wants to keep replaying RE1 every two years.

Patrick "The Trick" Klepek really shoots several walls in a train, uproar arises from wall-enthusiasts.

Year of the Resident Evil.

That menu....damn, Major Goldeneye memories.

Patrick is also scared by spiders? again Giantbomb biggest enemy: Spiders.

Independence Day quick look!

Never like how modern light gun ( with motion controls now a days instead of light guns) style games are using the reticle as the default. Sure the biggest problem with these motion controls is that there not as accurate as say your average ps2 Guncom2 controller. Even with House of the Dead 4 on PS3 I right away turn off the reticle (even though I'm playing with the move!, its still almost as good as a Guncom), there is just something very un-satisfying when having those things all over the screen when playing these types of games. Boy would I kill for Namco's Guncom3 to have done better sales wise, maybe the reticle wouldn't be the default then.

I`m not even a native english speaking guy but damn am i the only one who noticed that Reload is spelled wrong ?!

Probably a Capcapom thing....

@Grillbar: "Shoot that!" on the thumbnail is similar to Gary's suggestion to "Shoot that guy!"

Always punch your friends.

Patrick reacting to spiders was the exact same way as how I was reacting to seeing them. Wasn't expecting them at all and don't really want to play this game anymore (didn't really want to before, but now even more so). I really am not a fan, especially not when they are that fuckin big.

You got GIRL.

Posted by SomeJerk

Umbrella Chronicles gets super frantic action-jammed "ohshi"-moment-filled later on and I recommend it for lightgun-hungry gamers. If you have a Wii, I recommend the original.
It's not a Virtua Cop or a Time Crisis of the 90's (when they were good) but yaknow..

I hate the RE spin offs só much... The quality is poor and, although canonical, doesn't add anything new or exciting to the main storyline. I still have to play RE3 though. Is it still worth putting time into that game? I mean, from a story perspective, is it essential? Anyone?

Posted by Sputty

poor adorable jumping spiders

i know what i meant by it is that i dont know why but i still find it funny

Edited by Death_Burnout

Nothing worse than a QL of a game you actually like.

This game, or at least the first one, never got enough credit. Some of the later levels had some good moments and some good jump scares. And I liked how insane the last act was, it also made reference to the first Resident Evil movie with laser corridors! (unless that was in one of those few early mid-period RE games I never played)

"Why is the guy standing there" - Patrick. LOL

Posted by RichMeisterMan

The worst part of the game on wii was how the game would throw your aim off by shaking the screen and moving it around.

@narujoe93: Actually he also reviewed Umbrella Chronicles, the first one, and gave it a 7. I know opinions change...but the overly dismissive and discerning tone is a bit much.

Posted by Rothbart

@narujoe93 said:

I want to point out that ryan davis reviewed darkside chronicles, and for some reason is acting like this is a new experience for him. The only thing I can think is that his fat, lazy ass doesn't put in the right amount of time to review. He's my least favorite part of this site

Or perhaps the game didn't leave much of an impression on Ryan, which judging by the gameplay here seems to be the case. When reviewing games is your job, it's impossible to remember every mediocre game that has crossed your path. Also, ad hominem attacks don't help you further your point.

Posted by Curufinwe

They mentioned House of the Dead, but these games are far better and have much more content while only costing $5 more than HotD 4.

Posted by MeatSim

I didn't even know they made a second one of these. The first one though doesn't look HD at all.

Oh yeah, I'd love it if more games had built-in pro-tips Whitta. You could call them "Whitta's do's-n'-don'ts."

Edited by Colt45

@dendro157: I totally thought that too. It looks like it says "Relodding". The "a" is actually there; it's just a terrible font.

Be sure to "relodd" your weapons during the zombie apocalypse, everyone.

Edited by Xymox

beginning of this reminds me of that video, "what if quake was made today"...........

I'm sorry, but this was painful to watch. I take it that means it's not for me.

Edited by Quarters

Just finished beating these. Loved 'em. Resident Evil's quickly becoming one of my favorite franchises. Also, Ryan is soooo far off base with Darkside Chronicles being connected to the plot of RE: Survivor. I am always bummed by the outright dismissal that RE receives from the GB crew. I wish at least someone liked the series. And by the series, I don't just mean the first two games out of like, thirteen.

What's with the constant talk about skinless dogs? I've just played through Resident Evil 1 to 4 again and I didn't see a single dog without its skin. That is a Silent Hill and Paul W.S. Anderson thing.

Also - and I know this is a very minor thing to bitch about, but - am I the only one who get annoyed that they always press the PS button, wait for the XMB to load up, and then select the Quit Game icon? Instead of holding down the PS button or, better still, directly launching the next game without manually quitting to the XMB at all.

@Goblin: Dude they totally jump through the windows in part 1.

They were never skinless though. They were always in a similar state of decay as the zombies. Or the dogs in this Quick Look, for that matter.

Oh look, another snarky-as-fuck Quick Look.

Ryan and Patrick again...
