For more than a decade Resident Evil fans have been flinching and cowering their way through some five editions of the Capcom classic. However, if like me, you found yourself disappointed by Resident Evil 5 and thought the developers made a mistake taking away all that traditional RE atmosphere and tension, there’s a great opportunity here to get your hands on the original.
Resident Evil Archives is currently going for just £13.26 at The Hut – but do remember to enter the discount voucher Wii10 before checking out to bring the price down from £14.73.
Resident Evil Archives is essentially a remake of a remake. Resident Evil was rereleased for the Game Cube back in 2002, and despite the fact that the Nintendo Wii is compatible with Nintendo Game Cube games, it has once again been readapted (although it is by all accounts practically identical to the GC version) for the Nintendo Wii. Unfortunately for anyone like me who thought that Resident Evil 4 for the Wii was absolutely superb, Achieves hasn’t really changed much since its release seven years ago.
The controls are a little bit awkward and the pre-determined camera angles can be maddening when you’re trying to fight off hordes of zombies. However Archives deserves credit for the way it still manages to retain that classic Resident Evil charm. The pre-rendered back grounds still look great aesthetically ,and create an atmosphere of terror which, sadly, Resident Evil 5 completely lacked. So for anyone who is new to the Resident Evil franchise, Archives is a great way to get initiated.
