    Dont judge the graphics through screenshots. I reckon the zombies will look absolutely MAD!

    The Legend of Zelda: The Oracle of Seasons is the best game in the world

    I was VERY wrong.

    I just found out that it is an on rail shooter and this is total crap to me.

    On Rail Shooters are EXTREMELY out of date.

    How out of date?

    well basically, 007 Goldeneye was originally set up to be an on rail shooter but it was changed decidedly due to the fact that the On Rail Genre was wearing thin.


    On Rail Shooters were found in arcades for such games as Area 51. And here we are in the popular time of FPS and they are making this for wii. And after they boasted it at E3, they talked about another on rail game from arcades coming to Wii. NO MORE PORTS DAMNIT!

    So the fact that RE:UC not only has gameplay problems, it requires the Wii Zapper (to reload properly) and has what look like pretty bad graphics (like PS1 rendered zombies...)


    I am not buying...

    this is all my opinion. what say you?
    1. It's been announced for a few months now that it's an on-rails shooter. If you were so hyped about the game before, why didn't you know about this?
    2. On-Rails shooters are not out of date. They're still played in arcades even today. There's been quite a few successful ones. Time Crisis, House of the Dead and Ghost Squad for example.
    3. Goldeneye was originally going to be an on-rails shooter for the SNES. When it got bumped back to the N64, they had more power with the system and could do more. They essentially had the power to do a FPS, and decided to. It was not to do with the fact that the genre was wearing thin, but a challenge to push the game to test the console.
    4. It's not a port. Umbrella Chronicles has not been released for arcades before, it's completely new and exclusive to the Wii. Now Ghost Squad on the other hand is coming to the Wii and is a port, but has some really nice enhanced features (internet and LAN play along with 4 way multiplayer).
    5. I don't think the zapper is neccessary, just like the Wheel isn't neccessary for Mario Kart. Also, I think the zapper may come with the game.
    6. It was an E3 build. Nothing looks as good as when its released at E3. They always include some more minor details or complete graphical overhaul.

    I hope when they do spruce the game up a bit, they'll show it and you become interested in it. It's not good to say "I won't play that because it's an on-rails shooter".

    I think it really depends.. I mean, people like you prefer RE4 style, but some people don't.
    Actually I really was surprised when I saw the gamplay video for the same reason. But then what I thought was that since RE4 is like that, this one should be like this for people who just want to shoot.
    I remember reading a dude's question in Wiichat asking "Does RE4 has puzzles and stuff or is it just shooting zombies cuz I don't like puzzles"..
    Now that Umbrella Chronicles is going to be out soon, that dude and everyone has a choice, right?
    Just look at the bright side .

    I will not be buying RE:4, I will be buying RE:UC

    RE:4 is a very good game yes but there are a few things that make me want RE:UC more, I havn't played on a rail shooter for quite a long time and it will be fun remembering some old times and the story fits with the feeling too because of the Umbrella Corp. and the mystery surrounding it. You moan about RE:UC being a port, when it isn't 100% new game but RE:4 is a port, are you bothered about that?

    RE:UC is also a little simple, with the pointing and shooting, it won't require walking round for a long time collecting objects, checking for the next part of the game etc. the simple feeling of it will make it a game that'll I will be playing

    Yeah I am very excited for this game, and am looking forward to playing it the way you do. Like eskiemong said, you have RE4 if you want that kind of game, and you have RE:UC if you want that kind of game.

    I'm definitely on board with on-rails. I've always loved the time crisis series of arcade games and I'm sure that RE:UC should be pretty fun.

    I think it looks okay mabye fun at first. But what i really want is a classic RE game like RE1 2 & 3 none of this RE4 bull shit.

    Now dont get me wrong i LOVE RE4 but not as a RE game. They should have given it a different name. I miss the absurrd but challanging puzzles. I miss running from zombies to save your ammo. (and dont say you have to conserve ammo in RE 4 because really u dont if u look hard enough) I miss how a game like RE could scare the crap out of you.
