    As a fan of the Arcade light gun shooters such as House of the Dead, Area 51, and Time Crisis, as well as the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles is an excellent blend of the two and creates an amazing horror shooter experience.

The story of the game is divided into chapters such as Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil 2, where you roam around ( On Rails might I add) shooting every one of those creepy crawlers straight from the classic series itself. Not only do you face similar enemies such as lickers, hunters, zombie dogs and such, but at the end of each section awaits a boss and trust me whatever it may be it is angry and wants to kill you. What makes this game really stand out for me, is that even though it is a rail gun game, it never strays from feeling like an authentic Resident Evil experience. The pacing can be slow and eerie, your knife sucks as usual, and the pistol and other guns sound exactly like the original which really gave me a nostalgic feeling even though I had never played this before. Although the standard controller works just fine, if you really want to have the full experience, I highly recommend this game to be used with either the Move, Move pistol, or sharpshooter. If you are a fan of move gun games, or Resident Evil, I strongly suggest you pick this up. There is lots to discover in this fun horror shooter. Expand

  1. Shaky camera work is the mortal enemy of the on-rails shooter, and it raises its ugly head far too often here. [September 2012, p75]
