New Enemies and Familiar Faces
Unlike the evil enemies you fought against in the previous story, in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, players will fight against the characters' own inner demons, adding a whole new level of terror. Balancing this out, two of the most popular characters of the overall series and heroes of the beloved Resident Evil 2, Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, make their return. As unconventional heroes, the two start out the game as ordinary individuals who are thrown into terrorizing situations where their own fear is their biggest enemy. Featuring a brand new storyline that will fill in missing pieces of the "Chronicles" series, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles leads players into a horrific world where the lines between good and evil are blurred and the fight begins with your dark side.

Rail Shooter Action with New Features
The game's arcade, rail shooter gameplay, first featured in Resident Evil:The Umbrella Chronicles, in which players follow a set path through the game, has been radically upgraded in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. Along with this, the game contains a horde of new features, including the major additions of a sub-screen which allows for weapon configuration and use of recovery items regardless of time progression, and a new system that allows players to modify the difficulty level according to their playing skills that brings accessibility and fun to both the hardcore and casual gamer alike.

Coop Gameplay
Continuing in the survival horror tradition, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles increases the thrills and chills with an enhanced two-player co-op mode in which players will be able to follow their partners on the same screen. Their conversations and interactions have also been improved to create a more intense co-op experience.

More Frightening Than Ever
A more terrifying experience than ever before, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles combines a shaky and realistic handheld camera experience with an eerie soundtrack and creepy sound effects utilizing state-of-the-art technology.

Key Game Features

  • Two-Player Co-op Shooting - Invite friends and family to experience the horror alongside you in 2-player co-op mode.
  • Revisit Classic Resident Evil Levels - Experience environments and areas from classic Resident Evil titles such as Raccoon City from Resident Evil 2 and the hidden Umbrella laboratory from Resident Evil: Code Veronica, as well as scenarios that will be all new to Darkside Chronicles.
  • Fan Favorite Characters Return - Play as Leon S. Kennedy, protagonist of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4, his partner Claire Redfield, who appeared in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica, and others still to be announced.
  • Customizable Weapons - Players can upgrade and customize their weapons for each battle scenario. Each playable character can be specialized for a specific combat style.
  • Dynamic Difficulty - In addition to the initial settings of Easy, Normal and Hard, the game's difficulty level will adjust automatically based on the player's skill level so that both old and new fans can have a fun and challenging experience.
  • Collectibles Galore - For true Resident Evil devotees, archive items such as characters, enemies, old documents and movies can be found throughout the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars 1 step forward 3 steps back December 6, 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Darkside chronicles is not as good as Umbrella Chronicles.

1.) The graphics are superior but the satisfying sound of scoring a critical hit isn't there and that was the most satisfying part of Umbrella Chronicles

2.) The control is give and take, weapon selection is much easier but grenades aren't as fluid because you have to select them and use them with the button instead of using the nunchuck, it's baffling why they would abandon their fun and effective motion controls.

3.) The explosive weapons, particularly grenades and grenade launchers, are all but useless since splash damage is pathetically under implemented.

4,)The camera, dear Christ, the camera, whichever developer(s) thought it would be a good idea to move the camera around the environment like caffeine addled ten year old needs to be shot.

5.) The obsession with creating a cinematic experience fills the gameplay with frustration. For example: for no good reason whatsoever the last two bosses are invulnerable to gunfire even when their health bar is displayed. Good luck figuring out when 'cause chances are you'll dump hundreds of rounds fruitlessly into their carcass.

The cinematic experience also ruins the other boss battles because just emptying their health bar isn't enough you have to follow a ridiculous scripting of events and, oh yeah, even when their health bar is drained they can still kill you. It is frustrating beyond words to fight a boss and lose despite reducing their HP to 0 because you didn't properly perform their arbitrary scripted sequence. Not only does this become annoying but it makes the more powerful, slow moving weapons like the RPG useless because you have to go through that abitrary sequence instead of outright killing them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better the 2nd time around November 20, 2009
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The first RE shooter game on Wii was pretty decent, if not just a typical on-rails shooter. The sequel, however, ups the ante with better graphics, a more cohesive flow to the narrative, and an overall more enjoyable experience than the first. The "shaky-cam" that has been the subject of many reviews and previews can be good or bad depending on how you look at it. Yes, it can be irritating when you can't line up shots properly because the camera starts acing up, but on the other hand it adds a sense of panic and realism to the experience and makes you feel like you're right in on the action. If you stick with it, you'll get used to it and appreciate the package more. Another great Wii game and highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely better than the first November 19, 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At the time of writing this review, I have only beaten 4 or 5 levels, but that feels like enough to make this review, so others will know a bit more about the game. First off, the graphics are TERRIFIC, compared to the first game. The gameplay is about the same (it's a rail-shooter after all)(for those who don't know what a rail-shooter is: a "rail-shooter" is a first person perspective game that gives a targeting cursor on the screen. For this game and "Umbrella Chronicles", you use the Wii remote by pointing where you want to shoot and press the 'B' button. The camera moves on a predetermined path and you have no control when the camera moves. That's a "rail-shooter" summed up for you). Speaking of the Wii remote, the NEW feature that I noticed (and love) is: you are able to assign four weapons to the Wii remote's D-Pad. During the game, when you want a particular weapon, all you need to do is tap that particular D-Pad direction. (In "Umbrella Chronicles", you had to cycle through your weapons, that was time-consuming and annoying.) Another thing that I noticed is, it seems, that you can no longer perform "counter attacks" (like in "Umbrella Chronicles"). While that isn't too bad, it just means you have to be quicker on the trigger. Also, head shots do seem a little easier than in "Umbrella Chronicles".

In short, I'm very happy with this game. I definitely recommend it to any fans of the Resident Evil franchise. To others who are not fans, but are looking for a good rail-shooter, or are looking for an overview of Resident Evil 2 and 4 (If I remember correctly, those two Resident Evil titles should be the focus of this game (like Resident Evil 1 and 3 was the focus of "Umbrella Chronicles")), this game should do the trick.

If you buy the game: HAVE FUN!

EDIT: this game does not feature levels from Resident Evil 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why so much complaining??? March 14, 2010
By Dev
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
To those who don't know anything about Resident Evil series, this game has selected scenarios from Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil:Code Veronica except this is a first person rail shooter instead of a third person survival horror. So the point I am trying to make is THIS GAME CAN NEVER SUBSTITUTE THE EXPERIENCE YOU CAN GET FROM ORIGINAL TITLES.

Now saying that, this game is awesome because
-It is a rail shooter allowing you to experience from first person perspective basically shoot Zombie heads, legs anything you want unlike original titles
-It has MUCH BETTER GRAPHICS than original titles, therefore to me at least it is a MUCH BETTER EXPERIENCE
-they have done WONDERFUL JOB with reanimating the BOSSES, which to me is the best part of Resident evil series
-they have a NEW SCENARIO which goes into LEON'S PAST and fills link between Resident Evil 4 and other Resident Evils
-you can power up your weapons, so it adds an RPG element to the game

However, like every game it also has its limitations
-Unlike Umbrella chronicles you can't move your camera around making MOVEMENTS A BIT RESTRICTIVE
-parts of the game, the camera is JUST TOO SHAKY, however this is necessary in my opinion because it adds feeling to the event being portrayed
-lastly the game lacks variety in terms of scenarios that Umbrella Chronicles had, but has a GREAT REPLAY VALUE NONETHELESS

So yes it is not for everyone, but it is A GREAT GAME NONETHELESS.
To all the Wii owners who only buy Mario and Sonic titles, try this stuff out, support the dying genre on wii, you won't be disappointed
