* EvenBetterSequel: Whilst ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheUmbrellaChronicles The Umbrella Chronicles]]'' is good on its own merits, and added more depth for [[EvilIsCool Albert]] [[BreakoutCharacter Wesker]], ''The Darkside Chronicles'' has improved graphics, widens the range of headshots, except on Hard and Very Hard difficulty to add to the experience, remasters and remixes some of the most beloved music pieces in the series, has a well developed, original story with a more complex villain [[PapaWolf in]] [[AntiVillain Javier]] [[KnightTemplar Hidalgo]], a good supporting character in [[EnsembleDarkhorse Manuela Hidalgo]], and the settings revolves around ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' and ''Code: Veronica''; the former is one of the most beloved games in the series, while the latter is a cult favorite amongst fans.

* BrokenBase: Some people think its a huge improvement and focus on Krauser as an EnsembleDarkhorse character. Others dislike it because of the new shaky-cam, but also fewer weapons to use and upgrade and the above mentioned BadassDecay of Krauser or Manuela.



* EvenBetterSequel: ''The Darkside Chronicles'' certainly seems to be the better of the two ''Chronicles'' games in the eyes of fans. Whilst ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheUmbrellaChronicles The Umbrella Chronicles]]'' was good on its own merits and added more depth for [[EvilIsCool Albert]] [[BreakoutCharacter Wesker]], ''The Darkside Chronicles'' had improved graphics, widened the range of headshots (except on Hard and Very Hard difficulty to add to the experience), remastered and remixed some of the most beloved music pieces in the series, had a well developed, original story with a more complex villain [[PapaWolf in]] [[AntiVillain Javier]] [[KnightTemplar Hidalgo]], a good supporting character in [[EnsembleDarkhorse Manuela Hidalgo]], and the settings revolved around ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' and ''Code: Veronica''; the former is one of the most beloved games in the series, while the latter is a cult favorite amongst fans.

** Not completely rescued, but some fans who dislike Steve in ''Code: Veronica'' found him more tolerable in this game due to him having [[SamRiegel a new voice actor]] and for acting far less of a {{Jerkass}} towards Claire.

* CompleteMonster: Alexia Ashford no longer had love for her brother as a part of her personality, the way it was in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code Veronica]]'', and her evil is cranked up a few notches higher. A ChildProdigy who joined the [[MegaCorp Umbrella Corporation]] at the age of twelve, Alexia was also an entitled {{sadist}} with a serious [[AGodAmI god complex]]. She aided her brother in murdering and experimenting on their father, tortured a classmate to death (and recorded the session) for being almost as smart as she was, and eventually injected herself with the T-Veronica virus, which she planned to use to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence. Reawakened from cryogenic sleep in her twenties, Alexia kills her brother for not waking her up on time, transforms Claire Redfield's {{Love Interest|s}}, Steve Burnside, into a monster and forces him to fight her to the death, and tries repeatedly to kill Chris and Claire for no other reason then their presence at her facility. She reveals that her plan is to infect the world with the T-Veronica virus, enslaving most of humanity to [[HiveQueen her will]]. When asked why, Alexia just gloats about how, as a superior specimen of humanity, she deserves to be Queen.

** Krauser, of course. He was so popular back in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' that one of the main storylines in this game focuses on [[StartOfDarkness his descent into darkness]].
*** The fact that he was one of the development team's favorite character was also a big contributing factor to the decision as well.

* GameBreaker: Having a second person playing turns the game into a joke as the enemies increase in neither volume nor toughness to compensate for the fact that they are being shredded by ''twice as much lead''. Note that this only applies to Normal mode and lower difficulties.
** If the player don't have anyone to play with, they can always go GunsAkimbo. It just takes a while to get good at aiming with their other hand.

* ThatOneBoss: Most of the late chapter bosses will have the player swearing at the screen, as they tend to be [[MadeOfIron iron]] {{Lightning Bruiser}}s whose weak spot is small and hard to hit. The fact they often come sequentially is alleviated only by the fact that the game usually throws you a checkpoint in between each boss. Props definitely have to go to Alexia who is just as jaw-grittingly frustrating as she was in the original game. Worse then that, she comes right after the battle with Mutant Steve, himself a painful boss.
