The next title in the series, Umbrella Chronicles, mixes things up a bit, as it is going to be an on-rails shooter that utilizes the wiimote for placing the undead into your cross hairs. More shooting, less adventure. There is plenty of message board outcry over this new format. However, I couldn’t be more pleased for a couple of reasons. One, it’s nice to see older franchises taken into new territory. Two, Resident Evil 5 is in the works, so we’ll still be getting a true sequel.
