So, you do play the missions in this order:

- BH 3
- BH 0
- BH 1
- ??? (almost certainly nothing else)
- New chapter

It looks a bit weird having BH3 first, I would have swapped it with BH1 for the whole "what's going on here?" vibe the game had.

WTF? This looks a lot better than the last pictures I saw and I don't think it's just the scans, looks like the zombies are a lot more detailled, not sure about the environments.

This game is over-hyped (yes, what little hype there is for this title is truly too much).

From vague journalist impressions of Umbrella Chronicle's E3 presence along with my own, personal disdain for the game (based on concrete details) , I do not see how anyone could picture scores higher than 5's and 6's when the critics get their hands on this retrospective Resident Evil "experience." Umbrella Chronicles has nothing great going for it EDIT: Actually, the graphics are indeed nice.

I hope you are wrong and that they will include BH2 but they haven't shown any pic of it yet>_<

The graphics and art direction look great.

7300 yen?

For that price, RE:UC had better at least include some kind of rubber Jill Valentine orifice with lifelike texture.

Where the hell is the Nemesis?

If they could build a new character model for Carlos, they can at least build a new one for Nemesis
or rip the one from Gun Survivor 2 and place it in UC
.

But Nemesis can't be killed, right ? You're supposed to run away. How can you do that in a game on rails ? :\

It can be KO'd in RE3 though. In Gun Survivor 2 it was invincible though. There aren't that many bosses in RE3, so Nemesis really has to show up sometime.

Maybe they can take the Mr. X character model from File 2 and pretend it's Nemesis. :lol :lol :lol

Uhhhh, yeah,
with weapons meant to take down HELICOPTERS and other SMALL AIRCRAFT.
They might include Nemesis as sort of the "looming evil" behind you to explain why you're running on rails in a place as large as Raccoon City, have you confront him a few times during the level, and then finish him off near the end? I dunno, just thinking out loud right now.

Well, in UC, it's 2 on 1, with infinite ammo and much better methods of dodging.

The critic has been that the shot impact isnt shown too great visually. That´s kind of a non-argument, as it is the same shot impact as in every RE-game up to now.
And im rather hyped for this game. Reliving the great story of the older RE-games through a new perspective, voice dialogues between the characters during the play and a probably great aiming. Together with the new chapter that will reveal Umbrella´s downfall, this game is rather too less hyped.

The only picture that I particularly think is noteworthy is the one on the bottom right of the first scan.

It actually looks like the zombie is REACTING to be shot. That was my biggest problem with the demo - there was practically no indiciation I was hitting the damn zombie when I was shooting it, I couldn't tell if I was actually accomplishing anything while playing. I just fired and after a few seconds a zombie would just fall. I couldn't even tell if I was hitting or missing. It felt so hallow and lifeless.

Hopefully that was just because they hadn't added in animations yet or something... I mean hell, put some blood in it or some damage animations or its going to be one dull experience.
