just bought this for me and annie to play. love the fact that we both like resident evil. i’m a little skeptical of this game… but it looks like alot of fun, despite the $50 for two plastic handles that allow you to use the WII controllers like a gun. those things are way too overpriced… but it’ll be worth it, considering i’m playing with my GF.
either way, i’m really excited to check it out. (IGN rated it 7.9… which is so so). the other resident evil that just came out was rated 9… which i’m really curious to try out on WII. perhaps later.
here’s a description from IGN:
“The first Resident Evil game for the Wii, Umbrella Chronicles takes place from the first person as your characters move through a fully 3D mansion. This action/shooter hybrid reveals the back story behind the fall of the Umbrella Corporation by exploring locations from past Resident Evil 0, 1, 2 and 3 as well as new never-before-seen locations, such as Umbrella’s stronghold. Using the Wiimote, you take aim at enemies and fire away. Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles combines first-person, light-gun style combat with interactive pathways, multiple weapons and new enemies to create an entirely new Resident Evil experience that could only be delivered on the Wii.”
just played it today. it was not worth $100 for both the plastic zappers and the game. it was fun for the first 10 minutes… but afterwards, it just became the same old thing. the controls were so so, and the aiming was lagged. the weapons were mediochre. went back to game stop and returned it. i do not recommend this game—if you want to play a shooter, play a FPS (first person shooter).
