Trivia

This is the only Resident Evil game so far where you have the ability to destroy property: lamps, shelves, doors, pictures, lights, statues, anything in the rooms that's perishable. See more »

Goofs

A map of the castle from Resident Evil 4 is displayed on monitors after the final credits. Those events don't happen for another year, and no Resident Evil character would know anything about the Resident Evil 4 region at this point in the time-line anyway. See more »

Quotes

Albert Wesker: I see you are still resolved to go down with the ship, Coloneal.
Sergei Vladimir: Umbrella's not going anywhere. All of the pain... the punishment and the difficulties help to make Umbrella stronger! It's a shame you couldn't understand.
Albert Wesker: [clicks gun] Stand aside.
Sergei Vladimir: Oh, I almost forgot. Here are a few of my old friends I would like to introduce you to.
[Orange Ivan enters from the door behind him]
Albert Wesker: Charmed.

Fun filler, nothing more than that
10 March 2008 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Fans of RE 0, 1 and 3 will no doubt get a kick out of this game. All of the key locations from these three entries get revisited and almost fully destructible in this rail-shooter.

I ain't no fan of rail shooter games. They were fine back in the days of Operation Wolf but nowadays they remind me too much of those awfully dated (and seemingly endless) House of the Dead games. I was a little wearing when purchasing RE: TUC but I knew it would be far superior to the other zombie shooter.

In between the rehashed levels you get to play as Wesker and find up what he was up to behind the scenes of the original games. If you unlock enough weapons and files you can also play a bonus level set in an industrial facility owned by Umbrella in the Russian snowy wastelands.

Some levels take a lot of repeating until you get the right combination of weapons and perfect the timing but not to the point that you'll be chucking your remote at the wall. I am terrible at these kind of games and I still managed it.

What disappointed me the most was the total lack of any kind of atmosphere. But it's not really that kind of game. RE: TUC is for those craving a dose of mindless violence rather than a problem-solving thinker.

But when you unlock absolutely everything there ain't much reason to go back to the game. It's basically just something to keep the fans from starving until RE5 comes out, whenever that will be. One thing's for sure, it won't be on the Wii.
