Playstation Official Magazine AustraliaAug 13, 2012The camera work is tight on this rollercoaster, and the generous unlockable content makes this feel like much more of a love letter to fans. [September 2012, p75]
Jul 13, 2012For most of the time Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles fails to impress. Whilst it's certainly not the worst game out there, it struggles to rise above average, and I wonder if it would sell at all if not for the Resident Evil name behind it. If you're a fan of the franchise there's a good chance you'll get a kick out of this, but for everyone else I struggle to recommend it.

Although,Graphics: These are horrible graphics ported from the Wii, and they still don’t look HD. RE1 on gamecube looks better than this. Although, it is still playable and decent on the eyes. 6.
Sound: Corny voice acting, that’s not nemesis crapcom, nice knowable RE themes. Average at best. 6.
Gameplay: Rail shooter, very slow paced, fun for a while, quickly gets old. Difficulty spikes are really tough but it’s because the game expects you to play levels over and over to upgrade weapons and get higher level rankings. Some of the levels don’t even unlock unless you get an A rank on some. But these are optional missions but still play a part in the main story. I finished them off but forced myself as it felt like a chore. 6.
Story: It’s a nice piece of story although they don’t follow the actual events properly. Nemesis is trash in this game, the guy that designed him and voiced him needs to get punched in the face. The extra story’s for Vincent are nice, and never before seen, Rebecca’s scenes as well. 8.
Replay Value: Plenty to replay although it will feel like a chore. The game is about 8 hours with the optional missions it should take up to 12 hours. 8.
Overall Score: 6.8 out of 10.… Expand
