Umbrella Chronicles on rails and RE4 Wii

Umbrella Chronicles on rails and RE4 Wii

Some new Resident Evil information has escaped the tight lips of Capcom.

It turns out the Wii exclusive title Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles will in fact be on rails. Likely a sore disappointment to many, but don't necessarily write it off yet.

In other (but related news), it turns out the Gamecube classic Resident Evil 4 will be remade for the Wii. The remake will have extras like a game mode featuring Ada, the Wiimote will be used for aiming, reloading and knife attacks. Slash em up!

Damn, another company betrays Nintendo by giving them a port. I'm sick and tired of this.

It would've been better if it was something new. I wonder why they couldn't do something new? I want answers.

Pardon me for being out of the whole video game jargon. What does on rails mean? Taken in context, I assume it means that it will be available on several consoles--not Wii exclusive. Am I correct? I've never heard the term before.

Umbrella Chronicles? This is how great games get bad reputations, with crappy names.

Man, that means ReSi 4 will have the best graphics on Wii. Because they have to be better than the original resi 4, right?

I know a lot of people are disappointed with umbrella chronicles but I'm really looking forward to it. Also Resi 4 on Wii = Gaming Genius.

Man capcom makes me sick, they gave RE to Nintendo because everybody hated it and just used their playstations to play silent hill. REmake and Zero get popular, and RE4 is perfect, so they start giving out the game to everyone else, then when they give us an "exclusive" and it's on rails?! Oh wait, here capcom's making up for it by making the ps2 version on the Wii! *sigh* what they need to do is focus on adding in the online that they wanted and keep RE exclusive (or at least let Wii have RE5).

SO CAPCOM HAVE RIPPED US OFF. A gamecube game with Wii controls tacked on and an on rails shooter probably something that was binned from xbox or ps2. NO THANKS a twin thrones attitude doesn't wash with mii ubisoft. Capcom I've just stopped buying your wares.

Whew, I'm glad I don't have to hunt for RE4 on gamecube any more.

Awesome! Definitely a port worth their time. My copy for the Gamecube got stolen a while back so I'll definitely be looking forward to this one. I just hope it isn't the 49.99 norm for new games on the Wii.

I was hoping Umbrella Chronicles would be like RE4.

Medbluemetallic, On Rails means it's not Free Roaming. The player is stuck to a predefined path to follow.

I had just bought RE4 for the Gamecube, a controller and memory card so I could play it on my Wii. And does this kind of rail mean like an Area 51 kind of path, or less predefined than that?

CaptainHero, I couldn't tell you, never played Area 51. Senpai, not everyone hated the originals on playstation. WIIBOY101, The RE4 for Wii is good (I have it and have beaten it). Capcom still makes awesome stuff, and be UC on rails or not it still looks awesome.
