I didnt know they took UC and DC and made them Rail Shooters for the series. Also didnt know what a rail shooter was until I played this... simply awesome... the only way to play Resident Evil Zero by the way!!

I think this game is way better than HotD:Overkill. It's not a twitch shooter like that game... I like the slower pacing of this game and the uneasy atmosphere.

In Europe this game is at 25,90 (drops from 59,90).
I'm playing now and i have to say that we need a second part of this game!!!!
Very amazing game, and with very solid graphics (better than the rest of railshooters for the wii, and better than the future HOTD. Overkill).
Please, Capcom, when you bring to the wii users another Resident exclusive for us? See EA with the anouncement of dead space and more core games for this year!!
2009 'll be the best year for hardcore gamers on the wii. GREAT!!!!!!

Indeed Stof, the only Resident Evil I've owned was 4, and have yet to play 0, 2, and Code: Veronica *Gasps ensue*

Yet I love the story behind the series. Bio-weapons and mutations, the whole nine yards. I figured that with Umbrella Chronicles, I could get somewhat of a head start on what I've missed.

Along with the nostalgia, there was plenty of Light Gun goodness to be had. Now I'm working on finding every single file. Grenades ahoy!

If you're a Resident Evil fan and own a Wii, you need to buy this game. It's worth it just for the RE nostalgia as well as the excellent light gun elements. Upgradeable elements, 2 player co-op, and oodles of hidden content increase the replayablity ten fold.

Awesome.

1.25 million after about 7 months for an on-rails shooter game is really good.

The Wii will definitely get more Capcom love if their games sell this well. At this rate (18k), it will sell 1.5 million in about 4 months.

Sequel anyone?

Whoa, I didn't think it'd sell this well! :) Nice. Also, the graphics aren't fantastic, but for a Wii game, they're pretty sweet.
Only thing I don't like about the game is how your bullets hardly seem to pack any punch when you shoot enemies..
But overall, nice game! :)

malpensante posted 20/05/2008, 08:16
I am glad this game sold so well. I bought it at launch because I liked resident evil 4 Wii edition and wanted to support more RE games on the platform. Nevertheless, UC turned out to be a let down, a boring game for 2 players, and a slow, slow pace. It was not arcade fun, as Capcom told it would be. So... for me it's a 6.0, but like I said, I am glad it sold, so we can have at least a small hope for RE5 on Wii :)

I'm predicting that Capcom sees the potential here and is going to be putting a lot of focus on the next Chronicles game.

The only question now is whether we'll get just one sequel or two more games. They still have RE 2,4,5 and Code Veronica to go through, so with the addition of new areas it's hard to say whether the remaining content is good for 1 or 2 games.

I'll take my prediction a bit farther and say that they're working on the next Chronicles game right now, and that people on that dev team are working with people on the RE5 team, as having both games launch around the same time and featuring the same RE5 story in it would create a lot of buzz and interest in picking up both titles.

Went back to this last night (after finishing No More Heroes and playing other games for a couple weeks) and I finally got the A rank in Raccoon's Destruction 3, thus unlocking Ada's mission, which I also finished, thus unlocking Wesker's final mission, which I failed to complete last night becuase Sergie is a big-ol' bitch.


Still looking forward to a sequel covering RE2, Code Veronica, RE4, and a new side story taking place either in the Chicago Umbrella facility or linking RE4, Plagas, Wesker, Umbrella, and the T/G Viruses together. Plenty of fodder for a sequel. Also, RE2 could be broken down into two large sections, one following Claire, and one following Leon.

Wow Capcom gives us an old port and a low budget rails shooter. Granted both were awsome but Capcom just made HUGE profits off of this. If they dont come out with an even better and more amazing RE game for Wii they are crazy because the sales would be so good.

Capcom is one of the few devs that is making at least some of their games right on Wii. Their rE games are being polished, good graphics, not rushed, ADVERTISED, and all around good games. Hopefully they can keep it up.
