if your thinking this a newer res evil its not this is an old school version of resident evil like back on the good old days of playstation and ps2. for the fans who want to play an old school resident evil this is for you. i hope they transfer resident evil code veronica 2d scrolling shooter version and some of the other less popular resident evils to the wii soon come on capcom.
I never played this game as I never owned a gamecube and I like the RE series so I decided to try it out. The story is kinda weird. They tie it in as it is the prequel to the original Resident Evil, but some parts are tacky and don't seem fully connected, especially since in my mind Rebecca seemed somewhat frightened throughout the original RE and she seems a little more ready for action in this one. The fear/horror factor isn't as good in the surroundings, cutscenes, and especially in the enemies as you have apes, what look like giant crickets, some zombies that make me think of a drunk Gumby, and a centipied boss that just plain made me laugh. I thought there were one or two puzzles that were pretty difficult, most weren't too hard. There was a bit of backtracking in this game and I didn't like not having the item chests. All in all, it was an okay gameplay for my first time, but nothing great.
