The Nintendo Wii was an innovative console that most big companies ignored when releasing a major entry in a key franchise. These companies didn’t trust that the games on the system would sell; opting to put spin-offs on the system instead, in order to avoid losing mass amounts of money.
Capcom did this with Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, which appeared on the Wii system as lightgun shooters.
The Darkside Chronicles in particular is noteworthy for its story, which fleshes out the backstory of the series’s villains. However, the light gun shooting mechanics don’t always work as well as they should. The aiming can be imprecise, and the games often rely too heavily on quick-time events.
