There are 544 pages total from the two archives. Archives I covers Resident Evil 0, 1, 2, 3 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica. Archives II covers Resident Evil 4 and 5.
The content covers the stories, characters, creatures, items, art, timeline and keyword profiles. There's a lot to read, uncover and reminisce about if you've played the games.
I like the character and creature profiles. For the characters, they are really detailed in the background. Also included are relationship maps that show you who's linked to who. The stories and profiles serve as a good recap to how the plot has evolved over the many games, and years. There are plenty of video game screenshots with the narrative.
The concept art includes character designs, creatures and background art. While there are many pieces, they are printed rather small so it's not easy to see the details.
Overall, this book is a must-buy for all Resident Evil fans. It's quite a bargain considering the price and the amount of content included.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
Archives I covers Resident Evil 0 to Resident Evil Code: Veronica
Archives II covers Resident Evil 4 and 5
I think there is a tremendous wealth of information in these books, especially for someone like me who's only knowledge of the Resident Evil franchise has come from just the movies. The first RE game I ever played was Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City. I also have Resident Evil 6 Archives so now I have a fair chunk of Resident Evil games to play through. Due to the wealth of information I thought some of the illustrations were quite small but this might be due to the fact that these are screen captures from older games in a resolution that's sub-standard today. But that would be my only complaint.
Now, material from Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City and Resident Evil 6 are not presented. Perhaps there will be a Resident Evil Archives III...?
If you love the Resident Evil series you will love these books. If you're a Resident Evil n00b like me, well for the games at least, you will find tons of background and information on Resident Evil.

Here is a quick breakdown of what each book contains:
Resident Evil Archives Vol. 1 - 304 Pages (Covers Resident Evil 0, RE 1, RE 2, RE3, and RE Code Veronica)
The Layout of Vol. 1 is as follows:
Resident Evil Archives Vol. 2 - 240 Pages (Covers RE 4, RE 5, RE The Umbrella Chronicles, RE The Darkside Chronicles, and RE Degeneration)
The Layout of Vol. 2 is as follows:
Visual Work (Art)
Extra (The two Chronicle games and Degeneration)
As you can see from above, both books cover just about everything you could want about the main installments in the Resident Evil series (the most recent installments like Revelations and 6 are not included). The books do a good job of breaking down the storylines for each individual game. Don't get me wrong, there is no substitute for actually playing the games and getting every ounce of the plot, but the books do a commendable job of breaking down the plot of each game and catching up old and new fans of the series.Read more ›
So I was very excited to see Archives I and II come out as a set!! And at a very, VERY reasonable price. Im a huge nerd when it comes to the RE franchise (I dont really include the movies in with that, since the storyline is quite different from that of the game, though the movies are good in there own right.) Yes, it maybe be a video game series, but i absolutely love the storyline, and how it all ties together, even all these years later since the first game came out. These books also fill in many of the gaps left open from the games, tidbits you might not have found out in the games. I literally can not be bored looking through these. Im not quite ready to take them out of the packaging, but I wont feel as guilty looking through my older copies.
If your a fan of Resident Evil, enjoyed playing through the games through the years, Id definitely say this is a one set of books to add to your collection.
