REVIEWS Dungeon of the Endless Review
A roguelike that’s equal parts charming and challenging with a turn-based twist.

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

Resident Goodness

I have always, and forever will be a fan of the Resident Evil Saga, that’s why I was tingling with excitement when I heard that Capcom would be releasing another title on the Nintendo Wii.

However, as soon as I heard it was going to be a First-Person Shooter, my chest immediately clenched and I broke out in a cold sweat in the fear of the unknown...thank God I didn't break out in a dioreaha fit! But I was soon to realize that my symptoms would soon pass away as I pick up this prescription pana-Evil. Thank you Doctor Jeckel!

From the get-go I was impressed, the opening cinematics and story line helped build the depth of the well known story of the Resident Evil series, although I think I should have a word with the programmers for choice of font, the near like "Comic Sans" text style just kinda kills it for me.

The graphics of this game are quite stunning, however I personally believe that they could of done just a tad bit more, but that’s just being really critical. Throughout the horror you will come across the hordes of Michael Jackson - "Thriller" rejects which have great detail to the corpse-y look.

The levels themselves have depth to them as well, there is so much random stuff you can blast off to sometimes reveal some nice goodies!

One let down of the game is its soundtrack. Compared to the other Resident Evil titles, you will think that you've heard this kind of music on that cheap ghost train ride you took your girlfriend on just so that she could hold you close (but it didn't work out!) The sound effects slightly make up for it, but it still leaves alot to the imagination.

The length of the game is admirable and decent although not as long as say Resident Evil 2. The unlock/bonus content will leave you hanging on just that little longer and plus the beauty of any 'FPS' is that if you had a bad day with your lard ass boss you can come to this to take your sweet, sweet revenge on his/her rotting corpse!

Overall, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles is a 'must own' in your Nintendo Wii collection. If you are a fan of the series and the story itself you will enjoy every ounce this game has to offer. If you are new to the Resident Evil saga, buy this game and then kick your self ass and buy the rest of the series. This game can be picked up and played by anyone, yes, including your girlfriend that you took on the ride, remember?! But trust me, you'll be getting your money's worth on this hell ride.
