Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil


A Wii port of a GameCube title whose gameplay fundamentals were based on a 13-year-old classic.

Redundant title archives: redundant title

Refined version of awesome original ; Wii controls ; Still scary

Nothing new over GameCube version ; Wii controls actually suck ; Won't convert the unconverted

It’s the same game just with Wii controls. And those controls don’t enhance the experience at all. Resident Evil is an absolute chore to control at times using the Wii although, provided you’re not an action game fanatic, you’ll grow to love how their...

Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil


A Wii-specific remake of Capcom's 2002 GameCube title Resident Evil (which was itself an enhanced remake of the 1996 PlayStation game), Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil sends players back to the infamous mansion in Raccoon City where the popular surv

Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil


The original Resident Evil has been ported and remade several times since its initial inception on the PlayStation back in 1996, with the GameCube seeing a visually spruced-up edition and even the humble Game Boy Advance getting in on the survival...

Anyone that picked this up on the GameCube should ignore Resident Evil Archives since it is, for all intents and purposes, the exact same game. However, considering the Wii installed ownership is far in advance of the humble GC, this is a perfect...

Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero [Wii] Review


What happened before the mansion incident?

Detailed graphics immerses you in a believable world; Controlling two characters adds to puzzle-solving; The pace of the game with peaks in the right places; An enjoyable piece of narrative in the RE universe

A port of a Gamecube game with nothing new; Makes me yearn for a new RE game in this format; As with most RE games, you want them to last longer

Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil [Wii] Review


A port of a remake of a classic…but how does it translate to the Wii?

Tension and atmosphere is apparent; Good storyline to follow; Multiple endings allow for more replay value

Confusing controls; Dialogue is a little monotonous; Not enough chances to save game

Improved Graphics and Sound, Boring Game


Resident Evil is a survival horror game that first premiered in 1996 on the Playstation console. At the time, it was considered one of the first survival horror video games made, so its seen as the game that launched the genre. It was a best ...

Visuals, voice work, and background sounds vastly improved

Slow moving, boring, little action

Ratatouille for the Nintendo Wii is the official game of the popular PIXAR movie. You play Remy, the only rat in Paris with culinary sophistication, on his journey to save ...

Good unlockables, some nice features, tube racing is fun

main game is uninspired and too repetitive, lacklustre graphics

All the fun underneath Paris!


The Story Another movie to video games adaptation, it's really no surprise the story takes up loosely the plot and the story of the movie. So that means you're not getting anything new from the cut scenes. It just looks like the worse-rendering ...

Fun minigames.Cool extra features. OK sounds and graphics

Might be to simple for the adult crowd. not surprisingly easy

The original and best!


Im a massive fan of the original so thought Id give this a try. I absolutely loved it. The atmosphere is very creepy and suspensful. The music is great and the nostalgia from replaying all my favourite scenes again brought back so many memories. I...
