Trivia

After the credits, Wesker sits down in the map/satellite room, but if you look carefully on the right side of the map room, you can see the map layout of the castle from Resident Evil 4, but the events of Resident Evil 4 won't happen until a year later. See more »

Goofs

In-game files as well as Resident Evil related material state that the Tyrant T-103 was created after Umbrella recovered the research data from the original fight against the Tyrant in Resident Evil. Among the Tyrant T-103 specimens is IVAN, Sergei's bodyguard. The problem is that IVAN appears and fights Wesker in-between the events of Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil which was about one day earlier than Jill or Chris fought the original Tyrant meaning IVAN would not be created for about two months as the necessary data to do so had not yet been collected.

Crazy Credits

Just before the credits roll, the news on the radio is about everyone involved in Umbrella being plead guilty of all the events that led up to the end of this game. During the credits, it shows the snow fall in Russia. After the credits, Wesker sits down in the map/satellite chamber where Resident Evil 4 is ready to take place. See more »

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.
