A Classic Reborn
Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil is the original 2002 Resident Evil port for the Nintendo GameCube. In addition to all the content from the original 1996 PlayStation 2 version, it also features the additional rooms, areas, items and creatures that made the GameCube release an instant classic.

Story
The Raccoon City Police Department doesn't know what happened to the Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.) Team it sent out to investigate the Arclay Mountain area on the outskirts of the city, where a number of people have recently gone missing. The unit's helicopter seems to have crashed in the woods, and it hasn't received any contact from the squad since. The department decides to dispatch another S.T.A.R.S. unit, the Alpha team, to check things out. But something goes terribly wrong, which is code for "Zombies!"

Gameplay
In Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil players on the Wii take control of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team members Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine (both recently seen in the smash hit, Resident Evil 5). Your mission is to investigate the ominous mansion at the core of the horrific disaster and uncover the secrets behind a radical, genetic research facility. With unspeakable horrors lurking around every corner, the ultimate test will be to make it out alive. Relive the thrills and terror that defined the genre of Survival Horror and launched a franchise that has sold over 40 million games worldwide.

New Controls and Endings
In Resident Evil for the Wii, players now have a wide range of control options, including the Wii Remote and nunchuck in combination, which lets players shake the remote to ready their weapons. In addition, the game features more than 10 different game endings. These unique endings are entirely dependent upon the decisions and actions of the player and provide for maximum replayability.

Key Features:

  • The Original, Reborn - This is a Wii version of the classic Resident Evil remake, originally released on GameCube in 2002 which featured new rooms, areas, items and creatures that were not included in the PlayStation original released in 1996.
  • Survival of the Fittest - Battle against putrid zombies, infected dogs and horrific gigantic bosses as you struggle to survive.
  • Defense Weapons - Defensive weapons protect characters when being attacked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible July 14, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I first played Resident Evil as a senior in high school, and I didn't really like it. I was surprised that it made game of the year (If I remember right). It wasn't until I played part 2 that I began to like the series. Code Veronica for the Saturn was stunning, and was the only reason I bought a Saturn.

I didn't even know there had been a remake of part 1 until 3 days ago, so I borrowed my friend's Wii and tried it out. I thought this game was incredible.

Visuals/Graphics --> beautiful. The gripe I have with the fixed camera angles is that it's hard to see what's really going on or about to happen. Sometimes, as in the real part 1, I'd be fighting an enemy while the screen kept popping back and forth b/w two views. Annoying. However, you can learn to deal with it. The big reason I like the fixed angles is the beauty. I've yet to feel that RE4 and RE5 have as much beauty as RE0 and this one. Also, as one reviewer said better, it does make the game scarier.

Sound --> terrific. I love the zombie sounds, as monotonous as they may be. I played this on my 7.1 system, and hearing that random thunder scared the heck out of me. You could kill a monster, stand there for a second, and then the thunder just goes off. Timing! It just sounded great! I also loved the sound of that stun gun destroying the zombies.

Gameplay/Moves --> great. The dagger and stun gun were awesome. Movement is a bit clumsy, but, it's like the others, really.

Overall, this game was a blast. To the updated graphics/sound to big-as* Neptune (that scared the heck out of me) to Tyrant (I hated them all, except this one), this game is worth the buy, and I'm considering buying a Wii just for this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Defining Survival Horror Classic February 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Originally released for Gamecube, Resident Evil (also known as REmake) comes to the Wii console without any major additions but is still incredible and worth every penny.

Using the "classic" format of the older RE games (pre-RE4 style), this is the definitive version. RE2 may have had more jump scares, but this game has much more suspense and of course superior graphics. Even today this game impresses with it's lushly detailed pre-rendered backgrounds and high-polygon character models. Chris & Jill never looked so good, and in fact I prefer how they look here compared to their new RE5 designs. This game is pure survival horror, so if you tire of the more action based game play of RE4/5 then get this game ASAP.

In terms of visuals and in game extras, it's exactly the same deal as with the GC game. While it would have been nice to get a wide screen mode, the game can be stretched to fit your screen by setting the Wii settings to 4:3 and fiddling with your HDTV options. The game doesn't look bad this way, but given the choice I prefer the 4:3 aspect. It would have been cool if Capcom had used the extra space from the borders to display the map/items or health meter during game play. This way the game would retain it's proper aspect but still take advantage of the extra space from the wide-screen TV.

Despite being on the bare bones side, this port does include one major visual improvement over the Gamecube version;http://www.amazon.com/review/edit-review 480p progressive scan mode. I admit this was the main reason why I picked up this port since I already own the GC version. In 480p, the game looks much sharper on my CRT HDTV. I also tried this mode through VGA on my PC monitor, and wow beautiful stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was absolutely floored. June 17, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After reading the one star reviews of this game I realized something. Resident Evil 4 was more than likely those reviewers first RE outing and thus (in my opinion) completely negates their reviews. I usually don't make jabs at others opinions, but for someone to give this a one star rating based on it being "exactly like the original" is ludicrous. The original was on Playstation, not Gamecube, and was actually quite different from the Wii and GC version.
In the Wii remake, everything that made RE one of the greatest games of all time is still here. The thing that blew me away was the graphics. I own a PS3 as well, and while this game is obviously not as crisp, it's still beautiful. So much so that it's actually pretty intense at times. In my opinion, RE games are not action based zombies-can-shoot-things-at-you-because-they're-actually-monsters-not-zombies type of games. They're tight corridor, dim-lit, fixed camera games. Please don't get me wrong, I love RE4 and RE5, and can't wait for RE6, but those are separate games from the first three.
While this game is incredibly familiar, they have added some things to it. There's a little more outside exploration, as well as new puzzles. For example in the original (on PS1) there's a room with knight statues that you must push over grates in the floor before pushing the switch. This room is still in the Wii version, only with a slightly different puzzle and completely different item. I've only played about 4 hours of it so far, and just killed the snake. Like I said , it's a little different, but for the most part the same game. I love how in the dialogue they will sometimes say the same thing in the same tone of voice as the original, even though back then the voice acting was laughable.
The camera is fixed, and it's amazing.
