Mad Dog McCree. American Laser Games (1990) Arcade

I am going to do a top Light gun Games list soon, and to do that I want to get a few games out of the way. So apologies to the many people who don’t like On-Rails shooters as much as me.

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.
