Resident Evil Archives - WII - Preview
If given the choice, most gamers would rather have a sequel than a remake of an existing title. That makes perfect sense: why buy another dose of what you’ve already experienced when you could potentially have a game that is entirely new?
But there are times when you can have a new experience from a game you’ve already played, as evidenced by the Resident Evil remake for GameCube, a groundbreaking re-entry into the world of Capcom’s intro to survival/horror. The game was tougher, scarier, and several times more realistic. And with new kinds of zombies (the kind that don’t die from gunshot wounds), additional areas to explore and a host of new and/or altered puzzles, this GameCube remake never once felt like a rehash.
If you’ve played through it before, then you already know the horrific joys that game produced. But if you missed it – as so many GameCube-less gamers did upon its release – you’ll get another chance very soon with Resident Evil Archives.
Despite the new name, this is solely a port of the beloved Resident Evil remake. New features aren’t a part of the experience, so you can expect the exact same game. But if you don’t own the original, don’t hesitate to add this one to your collection. It looks beautiful and is still one of the best survival/horror games ever made.
