    i think the reason this on rails is so they can tell the story of everything, being on rails and not having to worry about **** but shooting and the story is what they are going for i think. ill pick it up as a bundle might as well.

    I think it's almost certain that the bundle will be cheaper than buying them seperate, so I will get them together. Is the Zapper still coming with Ghost Squad as well? With Capcom including it with UC, that might damage the sales of Ghost Squad I think. I for one was only going to get Ghost Squad, if it was a decent game, and I saved a good amount on the Zapper. But now I might not get it, but then again I might so I can have two Zappers for multiplayer (depending on the price of everything, I can't be bothered giving figures for an example!).

    I really like the idea of UC being on-rails. It's by no means a replacement for RE:5 and it is not the next chapter in the story. As JeremyGTS said, the game is showing the whole story of the earlier Resi Evils, so it makes sense being on-rails as it isn't one in-depth chapter of the story, its a few put together. I don't think there would be much point in just re-releasing the earlier Resi Evils in one game. It's more of a 'fun' game to tell the whole story, with some extras I believe.
    Plus, on-rails is fun in my opinion, you can just pick it up and play for about 20 minutes and then walk away. Whereas with a 'proper' Resi Evil games, it's hard not to play for a lengthy amount of time. And with the Zapper it should be awesome!

    it'll be awesome especially since it is said to be long, like ign is estimating it'll be 8 hours

    I agree with you.

    For me this game is my priority over games like brawl and galaxy.

    Will there be the option of buying Mario Kart Wii with or without the Wii Wheel? I'll be getting it with it of course, I want to try it out. Plus I already have a 3rd party Wii Wheel (I didn't buy it, got it as a present) which I don't use as I don't like the control setup for that in NFS Carbon. But now I'd have two, for multiplayer!

    Also, to change what I said earlier, I will be buying Ghost Squad now, and with the Zapper, as I really like the look of the game.

    I'm not sure if this has been posted but there's an IGN hands-on preview (here) about RE:UC, it seems to be growing on them quite a bit and I'm really looking forward to that as well.

    These games will be very handy as I want some games where I can play in short bursts, as when I'm back at uni I won't have full days where I can just play hour after hour, so these will provide my boredom with some satisfaction, even if I'm just filling in a 10 or 20 minute slot in my busy schedule!

    Ghost squad is more similar to time crisis.

    I however will be buying Ghost Squad and Umbrella Chronicles, being a fan of on-rail shooters.

    since i found this game was gonna be on rails iv been dissapointed

    but for the sake of sakes.

    i will buy the game as im huge fan of resident evil.
    but for an on rails shooter, it should cost no more than £25, which would usually sell around $40 in america,

    and with the zapper if it costs only an extra £5 ill buy, otherwise nope im not gonna.

    also if bought seperate you can get that cheap link game lol

    £30 for the game with the zapper new is a amazing offer.

    The game on its own will cost £30, or around that and with the zapper expect £40+ since the zapper will most likely retail at £15+ by it's self.

    £25 would be $50. A normal retail price for a game in America.

    Game (.co.uk) have it pencilled in at £34.99, however this can change (the price of my Galaxy on pre-order has been changed twice now I think), and Play.com have it at £32.99, but these have no mention of the Zapper. So whether these prices will drop with the announcement of the price with the included Zapper, or if they'll remain the same with the included Zapper being £40+ is yet to be known. I for one don't care on the price (obviously it's not going to be anything outrageous) and will be getting both however much. If I can afford them.

    I think this looks like it would be easier to control then the official nintendo zapper, might just have to get it
