Very good

Resident Evil, an age old franchise that defines the entire zombie horror genre. This title doesn't let down its long legacy of awesome games. Two player mode, good graphics, heaps of hidden items and the easy to pick up gameplay easily make this a Resident Evil...read full review

Resident Evil 4 was good. Let's hope this one'll be good too.

We aren't getting a RE5 for Wii. But you know what!?! We are getting an even better game for the Wii! I just know that Capcom will give us a truly amazing RE game on the Wii.

Res evil 5 will be another Res evil 4. They'll expand on what the Gamecube helped them achieve so really who cares. Wii is another story, all new control and gameplay never before seen in a ressy game. Yet again it's a Nintendo machine that gives Resident Evil a kick in the design butt.

RE4 was the best, coolest and most graphically impressive RE game I have ever played on any system to date.

I've been totally waiting for the wii, and when it comes out I'm getting that and the new Resident evil. I mean Resident evil 4 was awesome, and with the motion sensor control that would be awesome 'cause it'd seem like you're really in it.

I know it isn't going to be resident evil 5 but I still hope leon is in it, he's awesome. And with the wii controler it'll be cool because in a cutscene you might have to jerk it back to get out of the way or some sort of reaction like in re4.

Tallon said:

I just started liking RE when RE4 came out. Hopefully the Wii will deliver the same greatness in the next one.

biiner said:

Leon owns all, he'd better be in this one because he's not a pansy like all the other people.

I hope they fix up the humor in this game. Resident Evil 4's flat out sucked. And they tried so hard but it was just plain silly.

Yeah RE4 was awesome but the calls sucked more than a vaccum cleaner with a turbo.

This game is going to be the best of them all.

I personally didn't like RE4 too much, and I'm not saying the game is bad or anything because everyone else I've talked to loves it so I know it's just me. I liked the old feeling of Resident Evil more on the side of puzzle solving and fixed camera angles making the environment look much more real and scary. But I am looking forward to a RE4 style resident evil on the wii with the different controls and functions and whatnot.

M!! said:

I'm sorry, first of all I have to flame on all the poser Resident Evil fans. I seriously get ticked about people who say they love RE because of RE4, oh and metroid lover, have you every played RE0 or RE1 on the GC? The graphics are just about perfect. So anyways I read this game is coming out 07. Besides, why would they try to work on 2 RE titles at once? (RE5 and this) Resident Wiivil! YAY! Another thing, I am SO freakin' ticked that RE5 is coming out for 360 and MIGHT come out for PS3. It better come out for PS3, if it's only 360 I will shoot myself. What gives Microsoft the right to take a franchise for Sony and Nintendo and put it on their system? All true RE fans are probably feeling the same way. I think this RE might be like a gift of sorryness for not putting RE5 on Wii.

Hey m, if you're such a fan of resident evil go dig a grave and bury yourself in it. That's what a "true" resident evil fan like yourself would do.

I'm no poser and I have never played a Resident evil game but I think it looks pretty cool.

RE4 was great, but 5 will be a lot better.

Wii man said:

Think about how much better the gameplay will be for the Wii on this game, this game will be a groundbreaker.

RE4 was awesome and this will completly annihilate Nintendo's competition. DOWN WITH PLAYSTATION!

JD said:

*HIGH FIVES Uforia77* Totally agreed! Oh and M, I'm no Resi fan but Resi 4 was amazing and this will be better.

ganondorfrules said:

I've never played a RE game before in my life or seen one, but I plan on getting it because from all you fans who like the game out there make it sound like it's gonna be an awesome game.

Uforia77 said:

Ganondorfrules awesome is an understatment compared to how good the whole series is!

RE4 was the best RE and I hope the one for Wii has a good camera angle.

Man in Green said:

This could be a rumor, but I saw on a site at my friends saying the RE Wii game will have scenarios from all RE games. Scenarios from the mansion (RE1), police station (RE2), Racoon City (RE3) and the village (RE4).

someone said:

I bet this game will be very tough because aiming will be tough when there are hundreds of bug infested people who are approaching you. It's hard to keep steady aim when you are freaked out.

Avatar

Darunia106 said:

I played through RE4 and I wasn't really freaked out, but more extremely tense (the controller was drenched in sweat). But the game was really awesome, hope that this one kicks as much butt if not more-so.

metroid lover said:

It's official, Jill Valentine will be a playable character in the new RE for Wii and will include two different scenarios.

Avatar

Pikaluk said:

I have to kind of agree with M! Just because I can see his point of view. Everyone is acting like RE4 was the first Resident Evil made. But really there were many great ones before that. But also, RE4 made a whole new approach to the game and it kicked so much butt. So yeah, this one is going to be a gooder.

wii-mote dude said:

Oh man, Resident Evil 4 was awesome. Now with the upgraded and totally awesome Wii, this game will destroy the competition.

Isn't RE4 Resident Evil apocalypse?

WiiFan15 said:

Hey man in green was right. Each chapter in Chronicles unearths a different section of Resident Evil history, with protagonists to match. Jill and Chris return to Resident Evil 1's mansion. Claire and Leon hit the Raccoon City Police Department beat again. Jill and Carlos fight their way out of Raccoon City and finally, Leon and Ada reunite in that ill-fated Spanish village. There will also be unlockable characters and each character has their own unique weapons and melee attacks. This sounds awesome!

I'm going to miss the old style of the game, the better style in my opinion. RE4 was ok to me, but I think it really missed the mark. This upcoming RE would be better though with the same set up as 4, just because of the controller. But still, I miss the puzzles, fixed camera angles, slow moving zombies and 3rd person view.

Hey said:

Umbrella. And people say that the name "wii" is weird. Capcom better back it up!

WiiDaMan said:

I reckon it should be called Resident Wii-vul.

Captain Jamesman said:

The only thing I know about Resident Evil is the sexy Jill Valentine. Don't take it the wrong way please! Anyway, I've never played Resident Evil before except a little bit of #2. However, Jill is a playable character in my favorite fighting game, Marvel VS Capcom 2. I think she was one of the first playable characters.

Resident Evil 4 ruined the whole series. You go around shooting bloody diamonds out of trees, why does everyone like it?

PHiRE said:

Might have something to do with the superb gameplay, characters, graphics and music. Shooting things out of trees is hardly a major feature in the game!

Avatar

Jhett said:

I wouldnt go as far as saying RE4 ruined the whole series. I thought the storyline was really good, graphics were good. Leon's dialogue sucked, but it was portrayed pretty well. I started playing again and I'm actually much more interested this time around, maybe there will be a change of opinion yet. But it still won't be better than re0 or re1 remake for gc. I'm just more of a puzzle person rather than a bang bang person. Although I still do enjoy doing the bang bang portion quite a bit.

ForeverDead said:

So here how it goes. Resident Evil, one of the greatest series ever created, Resident Evil 4 ruled and PS whined and got it to which is bs because they then bought the rights for RE5 which has Chris Redfield and sum crazy lookin stuff. But luckily the Wii gets a classic RE game featuring old school and new, now that is sweet, can't wait for all the stories.

Zombie Blaster said:

The resident evil series is the best series of games ever made. Looking forward to playing 5, going to have amazing graphics, also so looking forward to playing chronicles. Seeing the good old mansion, rpd and city in new perfect graphics and playing with all the old school characters again. Zombies, COME GET SOME.

I hope Leon is here too, he's the coolest out of all the resident evil games.

Resident evil is an M rated game. I thought Nintendo was supposed to be a nice, friendly, family ok company? Resident evil scares the hell out of me. And I LOVE EVERY FREAKIN' MINUTE OF IT!

Now I can actually aim at someone's head and pop the hell out of it, it's going to make me so happy.

I love resident evil 4 and my absolute favorite boss fight had to be Krausser. For newbs having a hard time here is a tip, his weak spot is his kneecaps and he also takes more damage by knives so there. Knock him dead.

jman0726 said:

All the majors are here leon s kennedy, jill vallentine and pretty much everyone. I think it would be awesome if you had a team of two. My team would be of course leon s kennedy as my main man and jill valentine because I loved resident evil nemesis.

jman0726 said:

I have not played resident evil a lot, I really only watched someone play nemesis but I do love it and resident evil 4.

Will it be raining outside while you're fighting zombies? If so then how can you shoot while holding an umbrella?

stonehands said:

This should be amazing and more scary than before because you actually get to point the gun at the zombies.

I loved the Resident evil series on the gamecube. It's great they are bringing it over to the Wii!

jman0726 said:

I am very frustrated by re4 because I beat the game and after that I accidentally saved over it with one of ada's save files. I may not be able to start off with the cash and guns but I can have special costumes and for those who haven't seen the pop sensation Ashley she is HOT.

An umbrella. I can already feel the adrenaline pumping through my veins! I hope they have a good storyline to go along with the "Umbrella" part, otherwise this game isn't going to be nearly as good as the other ones.
