Resident Evil Chronicles
Capcom have announced yet another Resident Evil game coming out this year. This time, similar to what they’re doing with Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica, Capcom will be converting both Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles to HD and releasing them on the PS3. These games will be available on the PSN in June and in stores soon after.
Now you may be thinking, if you have them on the Wii, then it’s essentially buying the same games twice and you’d be right. The game controls have not changed from the Wii version it’s still a first person rail game. Players have the option of using either the Move controller, which would make gameplay identical to the Wii version, or the regular PlayStation controller, which I imagine would make it awkward and slow down reaction speed.
‘Remastered for the PlayStation 3 with stunning HD graphics and featuring PlayStation Move compatibility, Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will offer gamers the chance to relive the Resident Evil story so far. The intense shooter gameplay from both titles is back as players attempt to survive the horror alone or with a friend in co-op mode, earning trophies as they go. PlayStation Move technology brings the action to life, with the player using the PlayStation Move motion controller as their weapon. The title can also be enjoyed with the wireless controller, providing seamless gameplay without a PlayStation Move motion control accessory.’
Honestly, this HD craze is getting a bit out of hand. Sure graphics are important, but doesn’t it seem ridiculous that companies can sell the same product again just by making a slight improvement, take that Apple. Okay, so maybe that’s how the world works now, but that doesn’t mean we have to jump on board. If you have it on the Wii, are the improved graphics enough to justify buying the PS3 version?
