    Is this game any good then? I love Resi games but am not too enamoured by the whole on the rails thing.

    The reason I ask is because there are so many games that I would like at the moment that at some point I'll have to budget:
    Metroid
    Mario Galaxy
    Resident Evil UC
    Zack and Wiki


    That's £120, and my mortgage tells me I can't spend that much in one month! I know Mario is a must so does RE beat Metroid?

    Next time, please ask questions like these in the actual game thread [​IMG]

    It's your standard on-rail shooter with the classic RE elements. Nothing special imo. It nothing like a classic RE game, so if you're not into on-rails I'd steer around this one.

    Zack and Wiki is okey, quiet nice actually
    MP3, hmm... didnt like it so much
    Resident Evil UC I havent tried yet but seems to be an arcade "shoot everything that moves" thingy.

    It's not a bad game but it's not as good as Metroid, actually Metroid isn't just good, Metroid is awesome.
    I'd say:

    Mario Galaxy
    Metroid Prime 3
    Zack And Wiki
    R.E. U.C.

    in that order.

    i wouldn't buy REUC, and you can't compare it Metroid as they're completely different games. Besides a lot of people find Metroid quite boring, tedious and overrated.

    REUC is fun in coop mode, but on your own it's a bit of a boring game. It has all the RE components, the characters, the gore (there's not much splatter), the zombies the bosses and all that Jazz. It looks and sounds like a resident evil game, but plays like house of the dead. It's not as fast paced as house of the dead though.

    Zak and Wiki and SMG would be my must buy games from the list you compiled the others are worth a go, but not something I would spend money on.
