I own all the resident evils for the gamecube. I intended to use them with a Wii when I buy one in the very near future. What are the diffs between the GC and Wii versions? I think I read somewhere it was basically a straight port.
#2
Good price for a great game but I already have on GC and PSOne.

Highly recomended if you haven't played the original resi. :thumbsup:

Yes it is a no frills port. No wii remote controls like on RE4

I also have the Game Cube version.

Great game for any Resident Evil fan who has not played the Game Cube version thou

damm, 1 week ago buyed for 20 pond

Love the description - how much more can they milk that game?
#6
So what's this like compare to RE4 on the Wii? Is it "on the rails" or is there freedom of movement like RE4? What about the controls, anything like RE4 with the aiming and firing etc?
#7
The controls are very similar - counter intuitive and clunky, but somehow they work once you get your head around them, and they somehow add to the charm of the RE experience.

It is not viewed over-the-shoulder like RE4 but from fixed camera angles, which in my opinion adds a heck of a lot more atmosphere as it is a more cinematic presentation. It was also used back in the day to allow the Gamecube to present better quality graphics.

Is isn't on the rails, it allows you to go wherever you want but it does so from fixed camera angles that change whenever you enter/leave a room.

Worth checking out :thumbsup:

Very good deal I'd say
#9
I was going to post about how much they seem to be milking this game with endless rereleases, but tbf, the gamecube version was a massive visual overhaul which at the time was the best looking game on any platform, so its not like this is the original PS1 game being churned out yet again.

They could have at least bundled this and Zero together for £20. I'm sure they released them as a bundle in Japan

Yes, I think they did. Over here, they are releasing Zero seperately. Zero is possible my favourite entry in the series, although it is not universally liked.
#12
What controls do you use for this is it the Wii remote or do you need the classic controller or GameCube controller?

anyone?

It uses either the Wiimote and Nunchuck, or Gamecube/Side-On-Wiimote/Classic controller

From Official Nintendo Magazine review:

Resident Evil Archives is the third-party equivalent of a New Play Control! Wii game, yet while the classic game has been reconfigured to work with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, it certainly doesn't take advantage of them.

From Cubed3:

The second major issue stems from the awful control system, for two reasons. Rather than rework the set-up to take full advantage of the Wii console's infra-red pointing ability, Capcom has merely put a waggle effect in that makes Jill or Chris raise their fire-arm. However, it proves to be a highly frustrating mechanic due to its temperamental, twitchy nature leading to many instances of death in ever the simplest of situations. The best bet is to go with the other control options available - use the Wii Remote on its side, plug in a GameCube pad or use the Classic Controller attachment.
