Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Wii

When gamers talk of good Zombie shooters, Resident Evil is practically synonymous, until recently. Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles is an on-the-rails 3rd person Zombie shooter exclusively on Wii. That is where the similarity ends compared to the awesome Resident Evil 4 Wii edition. Capcom spared no expense on the storyline; the Darkside Chronicles is a mash-up of stories seen in past Resident Evil game episodes taken from RE2 and Code Veronica. The gameplay starts with a familiar eerily sounding ‘RESIDENT EVIL: THE DARKSIDE CHRONICLES’ spoken. The acting is bad, the characters all look like they’re from the exact same 3d template, same weight, same height, same build, dialect and conversations on the first two chapters is not much else than. “Oh no what is that?” “I don’t know” “It’s a monster” time and time again, alternating the question/answer from Leon Kennedy and Jill Valentine.  Things start to get better by the Shattered Memories chapter,  the game adds some humour, Leon gets pessimistic and Jill made us laugh when she said “give me a Zombie any day over this” (when looking down the barrel of her handgun at two giant flesh-eating spiders). On the subject of cloning, most objects and the sounds are reused excessively in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Wii. In retrospect Resident Evil 5 Sheva saying “Watch out! I’m coming! Are you okay?” cliché became quickly annoying, as did being jabbed in the gut and the thereafter cut-sequence. In 2-player co-op mode Resident Evil Darkside still fails to shine. Weapons and armour are shared. Offloading rounds of bullets which do little damage and take a lot of time.

Darkside Chronicles Wii is a game maybe which ought to appeal to gamers looking for an easy “on the rails” shooter, with the same style gameplay seen in Time Crisis and House of the Dead.
