by theplayer154 it is a great game,and the bosses are great.
This is the best resident evil I have ever played,and it is a great survival horror game,because it is challenging and the bosses are fun to kill.my favorite is the lisa trevor because you fight her more than once,and the way she dies.
Rated 10 out of 10 by the opposite of the guy who hates this game. ABSOLUTLEY BUY.
Believe me, this game is one of the most EPIC games you will ever, ever, EVER play in your entire lifetime. Well, other than MW2. Anyways, this game can be spine numbingly terrifying if you play it in a dark room without the lights on, and when your house makes random noises. If your into the Resident Evil franchise this is a MUST for all players. After all, it was the first. This game takes you through the Spencer Mansion, somewhere near Raccoon City, AKA Umbrella HQ. At first the game is a bit hard, of course, since you can start with Chris who has a knife, or Jill who has a handgun AND a knife. There are lots of twists, puzzles and zombies. Lots and lots of em. Not as many as L4D but still a lot of em. If your one of the people that started playing RE:4 then you have to play this one. Yea its got crappy camera angles. Oh well. Still a better game than RE:4 was in my opinion. That one changed the whole way of playing it, yes, its fun, but this one, this is the better one. Resident Evil 2 is completely the best one though.

The only other Resident Evil games I have ever played are Servivor, and RE3 both for the Sony Playstation. I loved Servivor, its one of my favorite games, but In RE3 I just could not get use to the controlls where you press side to side to rotate your charitor and up to move in the directon you are facing, and it was kind of hard to aim. I was really disapointed to dicover that Resident Evil Archive has the same controlls as RE3, and it seems a little harder to aim. Also after playing this for a while its hard to play another game because the controlls are so different that other games you kind of have to reajust. The zombies in this are harder to kill than in the two other RE games I have played, which encourages you to run around them, which is a little difficult with the controlls. But the story line is killer, and urges me to play through my frustrations, and I think the grafics are great to for a wii game, the lightning is really cool. I'm not sure if I wold recomend this game, If you liked the old playstation games then try it at least.
Rated 9 out of 10 by zp Great game
Onnce you get passed the controls it is a really great game, you have to find missing parts of the puzzle, hidden parts of the manson, and kill many things in your way. I personly loved it, you don't have nearly enough ammo in the entire game to kill everything, meaning things just might have to go by you. However it is rather difficult to kill anything, untill you get a shotgun. in the begining with jill you have to find a noise, be very careful, and just don't try to kill it, you are only wasting shots that you will need very sorely and wish you didn't waste. I particulrly loved the backup weapons, such as the daggers you find aroun the manson. someone attacks you and you stab them in the eye, then kick them to the ground. Many things you pick up in the game hide things on the objects, though this game is not easy to play, and the controls aren't easy to master it is a great game all and all.
Rated 1 out of 10 by a person who hates this game DO NOT BUY!
This Game is extremly hard and long if you like re 4 or re 5 you definitly wont like this. The whole game is different every single time you enter a room the camera changes also theres NO MERCANTS! I bought this 2 days ago and i hate it you need ribbons to save (theres only like 9 in the game). you have to find guns and ammo ect. because you dont know were they are (the color cirlces around things). you die in like 3 hits from a zombie and all the rooms are locked dont waste you time buy re 4 or the umbrella cron. or the darkside cron. later this year. I am a big re fan ever since i got re4 ive played just about every one since then and this is the worst one. So unless you've played this game before lost it Nom and can't find it and if you have a wii then go spend your *** on this but for me im gunna sell this and prob get wii sports resort or save up for the metroid prime trilogy.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Wolfmoon Plenty of new additions
First i want to start out by saying that this is a remake of the very first Resident Evil, that alone should be enough for you to want to experience it! This is by far the best Resident Evil of the old days. Before 4 changed the way the game played, this was the best and scariest one. Seeing the old mansion redone in gorgeous graphics that still shine today is awesome! Do not believe the reviews that say there isnt enough new content. There are SEVERAL new areas and enemies in this installment! New mechanics such as self defense weapons should you be grabbed by a zombie and need to escape fast. Corpse burning to keep the zombies from coming back even stronger(which leaves you keeping an eye out for gasoline) it's not a pain either, it just adds that extra element of cool. Hands down this is the best looking Resident Evil on the old consoles, Veterans and newbies alike OWE it to themselves to play this! In fact i just ordered my second copy! Time took it's toll on my first one. get this and Zero turn off the lights and relive the original nightmare! Now if only we could get a remake of RE 2!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by gregB Great game but where is RE2 for the Wii
This game turned out to be pretty good, the controls took some getting used to but after that it was pretty comprehensive. The storyline is great, the graphics turned out to be top notch since the wii is not known for great graphics. The sound production is crystal clear as well. All in all a great RE game.. On a side note, I've been waiting for an RE2 remake for years now, what's up capcom, lets get with giving the fans what they want already.. Back to the game. I found that the reworking of some of the best RE levels\scenes from the most popular RE titles was done very well and I'm hoping that this game is a hint of RE remakes and new games to come for the Wii. I'd just like capcom to stick to the original formula for RE games and make updates or new games tasteful and faithful to the original RE titles that made this franchise successful..
Rated 10 out of 10 by He's after STARS members Classic RE reborn
First i'd like to say if you have only played the 4/5 versions in this series, dont' play this game. This is not the "let me shoot the hell out of every zombie i see and pick up everything i can" kind of game. These games (the originals) are about thinking first shooting second. With that out of the way, I loved the new things in this verson (i never played the gamecube one) so for me it was satisfying in all new ways, but it brought me back to a time where survival horror was about surviving and not shooting everything that walks. I love the Resident Evil series (except the failed attempts at multi-player aka outbreak files) Too bad RE 2 hasn't had this kind of remake yet. Other thank that, it feels like the gamecube kind of feel to it (graphics wise). In other words those who played the originals will love this those who only playe the RE4/5 won't.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Ummmmmm....... Great re-make!!!
This Resident Evil game scared me so much when i use to play it for the PlayStation and back then they were all polygonal looking things, but this re-make brings fear again. Something about the mansion and zombies and this game bringing all in awesome graphics and challenging puzzles. Although this game has no merchant or weapons store it only adds more to the excitement of survival horror because you can really put yourself in their situation and give you a real scare. Zombies even thought they are slow still bring a scary feeling of being trapped in the mansion and uugghhh some eerie feeeling If you want to see where it all began, you'll definitely will want to get this game, and probably would want someone to stay with you while you play it at night. Controls do take a bit getting used to but other than that this game is a 10 in my book!
Rated 10 out of 10 by EndlessConnection Zombies...
A lot of newer Resident Evil fans can't handle the old school camera angle switches and control over the character, or the sometimes frustrating and hard puzzles but I definitely can, and a lot of other people who started this Survival Horror series before it became an Action Series. The first reviewer definitely doesn't know what a survival horror game is, I mean if its not gonna be hard, then it's probably not a good "survival" horror game, usually you have to survive lol. So what it's not the new blow things up fast paced fun sniping with merchants kind of Resident Evil, it's still Resident Evil. RE 1 was such a good game and still is when it came out. Plus killing zombies is always fun. I think this Wii return of RE 1 is just something for the classic fans and the newer ones who want to try out the older RE games.
