This week I’ve been playing the latest title from the people at Capcom, the Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection, a HD make over edition of the 2007 Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and the 2009 title Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, both of which started their life on the Nintendo Wii and have now been ported to the Playstation 3 with the inclusion of Playstation Move controls in favour of the original Wii Mote of course.
Both these titles are in fact separate games, which are being sold via digital download on the Playstation Network Store, while they do come as a set, or at least that’s how Capcom is marketing them, you can just as easily pick either title on its own for purchase, but for the purpose of this review, I will be taking a look at them as a collection.
Capcom have been making games in one form or another for over 30 years now, creating many multi-million selling titles, plus they have been behind the Resident Evil franchise ever since the Playstation 1 days, turning Resident Evil into Capcoms most successful brand so far and with stacks of titles to the Resident Evil name, an array of movie adoptions and spin off and a whole lot more keeping the zombie slaying antics alive for 3 console generations and no doubt planning to continue it onto the next.
So lets take a look at what these two HD re-releases have to offer and see if Capcom have brought these two Wii releases a new lease of life on the Playstation 3.
