Set during the events of Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles is a Wii exclusive game that should have fans of the longtime zombie-killing franchise salivating for its release. In his review of the game, Bryan Stratton had this to say to those very same fans:
'Let's just get this out of the way right up front: fans of the Resident Evil series who have spent anxious hours guiding Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield through Raccoon City and beyond will find lots to love about The Darkside Chronicles. If you have a Wii and an insatiable desire to splatter zombie brains like paint on a Jackson Pollock, this game should be on your wish list without question. Its only flaws are the limits of its genre and the hardware, and even then, it's still the best game of its kind ever made.'
