Product Information
This sequel to 2007's on-rails offshoot of the Resident Evil franchise stars characters Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield for more "survival shooting" action from a first-person perspective. Once again the gameplay involves pointing your Wii Remote at the screen to gun down zombies and other ghastly creatures created by the nefarious Umbrella Corporation. Scenes will automatically advance at key points, allowing you to simply focus on aiming and firing. A new twist to the action is an evade system that involves using the Wii Remote to minimize damage received from the horrors lurking within each setting. Solo players can team up with a computer-controlled partner or join forces with a friend for simultaneous shooting. Weapons can also be upgraded and customized before each scenario.

    A SECOND TAKE ON SOME RE CLASSIC STORIES

    First of all, I have to admit I really liked the first entry in the series (known as "Umbrella Chronicles") and, of course, I was looking forward to a sequel. But, somehow this title had been slightly difficult to find, at least in my country.

    The game features better graphics and more action than the first title, and, even more important, it gives you the chance to live again (from a different perspective) some of the most consecrated stories in the RE canon: Resident Evil 2 & RE: Code Veronica as well as another story that may work as a prequel to Resident Evil 4 events.

    The game is basically a rail shooter (like “The House of The Dead” series), with a limited movement. And you will fight against lots and lots of zombies and mutated beasts. Difficulty is adjustable and there are several items hidden trough the scenarios of the game. It also features two different endings according to your play performance.

    Nevertheless, this second part failed to impress me. Probably because it is not a big improvement over the previous installment (in fact, the biggest change is the bumpy and somewhat irritating camera) and it is not a long-lasting game (It took me around 8 hours to beat it) but still is pretty fun to play with, specially if you have a partner to enjoy the 2-players mode. Besides, CGI cutscenes are very nice and the music suits very well the ambience.

    If you are a die-hard Resident Evil fan, do not think twice: This game is perfect for you. On the other hand, if you are only curious or dubitative about getting or not “Darkside Chronicles” I will suggest you to try it out first (maybe rent it).

    Hope you have found this info useful.

    One Of The Best Games EVER! A Most Have For The Resident Evil Fans!

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I bought this game searching for a great game to play with my little sister that bought herself a Nintendo Wii, and wanted me to play alongside her. After making the purchase of 2 Wii Zappers and a friend giving me the controls for a weekend, the goodness began!

    This game is freaking incredible for Resident Evil fans, and people really looking for a great, fun, entertaining, movie like game!

    It's a rail, first-person shooter game in which the main story is based somewhere between Resident Evil Code Veronica X & Resident Evil 4.

    You start in a village, kill some zombies, beat a boss monster, and then you go straight to the past; to Resident Evil 2. You play the important events from RE2 since entering the city, the Police Station, the sewers, the lab; everything leading into the killing of the final boss Dr. William Birkin ''G''.

    Then you return to the main ''new'' story; and then go to the past again to play the events from Resident Evil Code Veronica X. After playing all the chapters, you go play the main story again; and.... FINISH THE GAME?!

    Yeah! The game is short, but is not as easy as it seems. You get to upgrade your weapons by playing the chapters over and over again, until you collect sufficient gold to upgrade your weapons. Believe me! Some boss and not so normal monsters are really hard to beat! You really need to play the chapters, get the money, upgrade the weapons, and then you're really going to kick some!!! I played a whole weekend to beat this game! It has only been some hours since I beat it! Now I have to play the extra chapters and beat it on normal & hard difficulty settings.

    Playing alone or alongside a partner it's really a great time. This one is really a great game and it will stay in my collection forever!

    PS. To die-hard fans of the Resident Evil series.....
    The game plots have been changed from the original games. You play co-op with a partner or ''the game itself'' with 2 characters being together everytime. You know that in the real videogames, you're really ''All By Yourself'', but in this game is not that way. Still... ''the computer partner'' doesn't help much, but enhaces the plot. AGAIN! This is great, fun game, and a highly recommend it to have a good time playing from time to time!
    Also!!! If you play really great, you may open new locked chapters to understand what really happened to Jack Krauser before Resident Evil 4!

    Resident Evil: ''The Darkside Chronicles'' really makes a great addition to your videogames collection!

    A great improvment over the last game in the series.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Out of all the Wii Resident Evil games, this has to be one of the best. The first game in the Chronicles series, Umbrella Chronicles, was a great rendition of Resident Evil 0, 1, and 3, but was missing Resident Evil 2, and Code Veronica. Darkside Chronicles manages to add this missing chapters, and an all new original story filling in some story gaps from Resident Evil 4.

    Although this game doesn't have unlockable side chapters like Umbrella Chronicles, the three acts have far more chapters (between 6 or 7, compared to 3 in the previous game), giving a much more detailed (but still paraphrased) story. Events may even change depending on what character is played, but you can't switch characters between chapters, and need to start the act over if you want to switch characters.

    Weapon switching is a lot less of a chore in this game too, as you can switch freely between any of your four equipped weapons, rather than trying to cycle through all the weapon on hand, and you can change your equipment at any time.

    Item collecting still requires fast reflexes, and destroying objects. But now you'll automatically pick up small coins when you find them, and you'll need them to upgrade your weapons, which can now be upgraded in individual areas.

    The game also has two endings. The good ending requires to defeat the final boss within a invisible time limit, only achievable by maxing out all your weapons, and saving your heavy firepower for it's second form. This may frustrate players who are unaware of this, but it only a minor problem.

    Overall, if you're looking for a great game for your Wii Zapper (or Playstation Move with the upcoming HD collection), this one will satisfy.

    Significantly better experience than Umbrella Chronicle

    The story’s a bit silly, but hey, so is the entire Resident Evil universe, and at the very least, it’s pretty cool to see how well this game sandwiches a new story arc into the familiar scenarios. If you’re a Resident Evil freak I think you’ll appreciate how this one ends, but if you’re not up on your Biohazard history, you’ll probably be a bit lost.

    The rail shooter genre will never be the true Resident Evil experience, but Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles shows that the franchise can be spun out into different, successful styles of gameplay. Even with my complaints about the bouncy camera, I believe this follow-up is a significantly better experience than the original Umbrella Chronicles and one fun ride from start to finish.

    8.0 Presentation
    The story assumes you've played much of the Resident Evil franchise, but if you haven't you can still have a great time. A decent amount of options even with some awkward restrictions.
    9.0 Graphics
    The game looks fantastic: excellent character animations, environments, and lighting in realtime, and the CG cutscenes are excellent. Lipsyncing needs work, but it's a minor quibble.
    8.0 Sound
    The dialogue isn't as laughably bad as some previous Resident Evil efforts, but it's pretty cheesy nontheless. The moody background music sets the tone in a great way.
    8.0 Gameplay
    The early issues with the bouncy camera is a big hurdle to get used to, but once you do this is a really fun shooter. Even if it's a bit repetitive.
    8.0 Lasting Appeal
    Surprisingly lengthy and replayable. You can (and will) return to levels playing as the other character, and the online leaderboards are a good encouragement for high scores.
    8.1
    Impressive OVERALL

    This game is available in my eBay Store at a good price:

    Fun on rail shooter ala Resident Evil with a partner.

    The value is pretty good for this game. I had a lot of fun especially playing with my sis. The chapters span Resident Evil, Code Veronica, and explains Leon and Krauser going to South America before RE4. There were a few times that made me jump a little because I was used to Umbrella Chronicles which wasn't scary. The difficulty is hard if you're new so play on easy and move up. It takes a day to play all the chapters. Enjoyed the story, the bosses, hidden files etc. The only little issue I had was the moving camera because it can make you nauseous at times if you don't take breaks but they tried to make the POV at realistic as possible so no complaints. If you enjoyed Umbrella Chronicles, this is a step up. If you like rail shooters, this is for you. Lots of replay value. Enjoy.
