    Spend your money on Chronicles HD Collection only if you answer these two questions positively: are you a die-hard fan of Resident Evil and do you feel like playing an on-rails shooter? [September 2012, p.76]

    The HD collection brings the on-rails action to the PS3 with zombies and leeches and yeti looking things, oh my! The Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles keep you entertained with huge worm looking enemies and zombies. Yes, more zombies. I've enjoyed the majority of the Resident Evil series and feel that this collection is a great addition to any gamer's backlog. It retains the dark, ominous mystery that Resident Evil encompasses in each game and only surrounds you with the story of good versus evil in a world covered in zombies.

    Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection doesn't turn the genre on its head, and it certainly isn't a must have, but if you're looking for some lightgun fun, by yourself or with a friend,Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection is a recommended investment for a few afternoons of zombie blasting fun.

    Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection is a solid pairing considering the price tag, but with nothing new besides the HD facelift, there's little here to entice veteran players.

    It feels great to blast though the hordes of zombies and monsters and especially the big guns will leave you with a wicked smile. If you haven't played it on the Wii, own a Move and are not averse to the one-sided gameplay, it´s an easy buy.

    Two player co-op works like a dream and allows for quick drop-in drop-out gameplay, something that many rail-shooters seem to forget.

    The Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection proves a faithful translations of one of the more interesting footnotes in the Resident Evil canon, and at least the Darkside Chronicles half of it remains a solidly-realized rail shooter-and one that's accessible even for people without the Move controller. I can't help but feel that it's a missed opportunity for developers to go back and fix problems in the original product, though.

    Resi may be a compelling series but this collection is outdated and too repetitive. [Sept 2012, p.107]

    Overall Darkside Chronicles is pretty fun, and while not without its own set of flaws, it's clearly the part of this collection that's going to be worth checking out. Unless you're some type of Resident Evil die-hard though, I'd urge you to avoid Umbrella Chronicles, as I find it to be a pretty weak entry that does little more than retell you the plot highlights from a few of the previous Resident Evil titles, and certainly feels less polished when stacked up against Darkside Chronicles. And at $15, Darkside Chronicles is easily worth the asking price, and makes for a pretty fun experience.

    The Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection may be a great example of light-gun gaming on a home console (as long as you have Move), but no matter how fun it is, you're still just hitting one button for 90% percent of the game. Leave that stuff in the arcade where it belongs.

    As mindlessly entertaining as any lightgun game, and with lots of zombie-themed nostalgia - but none of the pacing or showmanship of the best of the genre.
  12. Despite Capcom's bandaging these games do show their age. Luckily the gameplay is truly timeless. These rail shooters are inspired by The House of the Dead, an arcade classic which was also remade recently for the PlayStation Move. [September 2012, p.84]
  13. This courts motion sickness with a bottle of wine and a mixtape. [Aug 2012, p.107]
  14. Resident Evil completionists who missed these simple shooters elsewhere may find them briefly amusing, but casual Move enthusiasts needn't snag both. [Sept 2012, p.85]

    Works well with Move, for what it's worth. [Aug 2012, p.105]

    One of the best on-rail shooters around, with all its limitations, in shiny HD. If you love the genre get it, it's one of the few good reasons to own a Playstation Move after all.

I can never go back to the wii after seeing how much better the graphics look. The Wii version has jagged and blurred graphics. This one is crystal clear. If i did not know better id say this should of released on PS3 instead of wii hands down. Awesome game on both platforms, but PS3 version is much better. Full Review »

Fun 2-player action with decent graphics, excellent cutscenes, and responsive controls. Don't need Move controllers, but hightly recommended. Never played the original games-- only had holes filled in by Operation Racoon City, RE4, and RE5-- so these are a neat way to experience the original storylines. Tons of collectibles to find and well as lots of weapons upgrades. Full Review »
