Strange, I could have sworn the remake and zero were GC only due to the fact that Nintendo bought an exclusive contract with Capcom for them. Ahh, and what about the GC versions of 2 and 3? Truely pioneering works of the consoles graphic abilities.
No, GC did not buy an exclusive contract with Capcom. Only last month a Resident Evil game was released on PS2, 'OUTBREAK'. Outbreak was, once again, poor and shabby compared to the GameCube versions. 2, 3 and Code Veronica weren't remakes on the GC, simply conversions from Console to console. Shame, althought the graphics on all of those games are truly top notch for their time, it would have been dazzling to see remakes of those too with the GC's full capacity.
As for the movie, I was rather disappointed that it wasn't so much survival horror as sci-fi killer computer.
Yes, that was my main beef with the movie too. Although the feeling of stillness and camera angles were captured nicely, it left almost a bitter taste in the mouth, although it was nice to see familiar locations. But it could have been called something completely different to Resident Evil, and no one would have probably got the link! The original, George 'DOTD' Romeo script was better. It actually followed the first game, but only included Zombies, no monsters, and a poor storyline which completely deviated from the 'evil corportation' story RE fans love. I was miffed there was no hunters, only one crappy looking LICKER that mutated. Bah.
My one niggle with the otherwise wonderful Resi games has been the voice acting.
Yeah Cufflink, hahah. It's a shame that RE began to get a trademark for horrible voice acting. Thankfully, the Remake and Zero on GC put and end to the silly arms failing and gut-renching voices that sound like they came from a Grade 10 radio show.
Im a resident evil FAN!!!!! i cant wait till the next movie comes out i stumble across to some site it say it should be out in around september. i think its called resident evil acoplypse(spelling might be wrong) I think you can find the site by typing resident evil 2 movie or something i think thats what i typed.
The official site is www.re2.com. It's really cool and interactive. Yup, the movie is called Resident Evil APOCALYPSE, but it was originally going to be called NEMESIS since it is actually based entirely on the game Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. However they scraped the name when Star Trek beat them to it, haha. September 10th.
