Trivia

The game (especially the 'Umbrella's End' level) incorporates several elements from the first Resident Evil (2002) movie, such as: the Red Queen computer, an attack on a high-speed train wagon inside the Umbrella complex, the protagonists getting trapped in a room with lasers, etc. 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

Billy Coen: Anything you say Princess.
Rebecca Chambers: Don't call me Princess!

Another breath of fresh air.

Like Resident Evil 4 before, this game is branching away from the now outdated 3rd person static camera the original resident evil games had, only in an completely different direction to what RE4 attempted.

Capcom had tried first person resident evil games before without much luck, they were pretty bad. Thankfully in this attempt they completely ditched the character movement control and instead went for an on rails shooter.

This doesn't mean you only point and shoot, the game provides moments where thanks to the Nintendo Wiis unique controls you need shake and rattle the controls to dodge and avoid enemies attacks, proving a new kind of interactivity no other RE game has ever done before.

As for the story of the game, most of the story is a recap of Umbrellas involvement with S.T.A.R.S, and gives a brief recap of RE0, 1 and 3. With some new behind the scenes secrets tot he story. This was done to fill in any questions for the new RE fans that RE4 brought to the series. It is recommended to play the actual games for the full story though, as the recaps are quite inaccurate at times.

The rest of the story is all new, and fills in some questions missing from the series, namely how Umbrella was finally taken down between the events of RE3 and RE4 which are 6 years apart in game time. Questions of how some people survived various predicaments in previous games that have never been answered before are done so here, involving the likes of Wesker and Ada.

Many complain that there is no RE2 or RE4 section, like said the game was made for new RE4 fans, so there is no need to recap that story, as for RE2, the story/characters has little to do with umbrella directly, it tackles events caused by them instead for a makority of the game, so it didn't have a place in RE:UC, a game following the characters that were directly involved with Umbrella.

While we don't get as much story as a full new RE game usually provides, we do get a lot, and the gameplay is still great fun either way, which should be the heart of a game.
