Since we are in the spooky season, I started up Umbrella Chronicles for the first time. I played Darkside Chronicles when it first came out and I loved it and I have to say - WHILE Umbrella Chronicles is fun to play, the canon is just beaten to a pulp on this one.

Obviously, everyone knows about the Ivan and Talos being nonsensical additions since they supposedly appear around the events of the first game... so they are Tyrants made perfectly BEFORE the first Tyrant who was supposedly the ultimate life form and their first successful experiment. No thought was put in to THAT.

But then also, when you get to play RE3, Jills first section is just non-events from the game. Dont you remember when Jill and Carlos hiked the highway around Raccoon City? Or when they fought the Gravedigger in the middle of the the street before they meet Nemesis. I see they wanted to include areas from Outbreak, but they should have included actual locations from the RE3 game.

It is a lot of fun though and I look forward to finishing it!

For them to include anything from the og RE3 they would need to make it from scratch. Considering UC is pretty much made of reused assets, with only the Russia level and a few of the bosses being actually new, it doesn't surprise me that their RE3 scenario is basic a trip on Outbreak Locations. I do agree with you though, RE3 is the weakest part of UC (and the intro movie for the scenario is pretty ridiculous).

DC did a much better job, in a sense that recreated the scenarios from RE2 and CV from scratch. That was cool.

It is still fun and entertaining, but the original RE3 is the game I have not played in the longest, so it shocked me when it was quite different.

It is still strange they did not include ANY Nemesis in the first Jill/Carlos path but instead made the Gravedigger the level boss.
