Resident Evil 5, Capcom (2009) Xbox360

Xbox360_Resident_Evil_5

Resident Evil 5 is an odd one for me. It has a Metacritic score of 83, but I have never met somebody with a good thing to say about it. Even on Reddit nobody really defends 5 (but a lot will defend 6),  so who is wrong? Everybody, or Metacritic. Continue reading

Resident Evil: Code Veronica. Capcom (2000) Dreamcast

Resident Evil - Code Veronica (PAL) - Front

I previously reviewed Code Veronica X on the GameCube, and thought it was finally time to come and play the “proper” version of the game. Continue reading

Resident Evil 4, Capcom, (2005) Nintendo Wii

RESIDENT EVIL 4 WII COVERI am not sure how to do this one. Resident Evil 4 is a great game, but is it really a Resident Evil game? For the uninitiated, there is no Umbrella, there are no Zombies, there are no Tyrants, no door opening sequences, no lighter or lockpick puzzle, no crates to push, no chests to store equipment, no survival horror, and no shortage of ammo.

What we do have is, some ludicrous plot about terrorists, a kidnapped President’s daughter, a man who may or may not be a flasher (creepy shop man), some angry Spanish villagers, and something about Las Plagas.  Continue reading

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. Capcom. (2007) Nintendo Wii

Resident Evil The Umbrella Chronicles

To be honest, I am not very sure why I am reviewing this. I was on holiday, I only had my Wii,  had finished Resident Evil 4, and I needed a game to play.

I wasn’t expecting much and I was STILL disappointing.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X. Capcom (2003) Gamecube

Code Veronica X gamecase

Firstly, for clarity… This is a slightly revised version for the Gamecube of Code: Veronica, it featured slightly better graphics, and about 9 minutes of extra cut scenes. The original version of Code: Veronica was release in 2001 for the Dreamcast and PlayStation2, but for the purposes of the review I am referring to the Gamecube version (Code: Veronica X).

Resident Evil: REBirth. Capcom (2002) Gamecube

Resident Evil REBirth case

And here we are, Resident Evil 1 remake, also known as Resident Evil: Remake (REmake), or Resident Evil: Rebirth (REBirth) (I will refer to this game as REBirth).

On our poll on Facebook/Twitter and the Blog this is the game that is coming top in our viewers eyes, so is it as good as everyone says? Could this be the best Resident Evil game? Or has it been George Lucas’d? Continue reading

Resident Evil Zero. Capcom (2002) Gamecube

Resident Evil Zero Box

So, the logical place to start with this is the beginning, and by beginning, I mean the ZERO (the prequel), because you know… Capcom wouldn’t George Lucas our asses, and introduce a load of bullshit like Leeches Metachlorians. Continue reading
