At the attractive price of absolutely free, Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection is the perfect game to grab for some good old-fashioned couch co-op action. With support for two players, the experience is reminiscent of classic arcade shooting titles such as House of the Dead and Area 51. However, unlike many of the rail shooters that have come before, both games offer enticing story elements to Resident Evil lore, such as Wesker’s side of the events the first Resident Evil title.
Long time PlayStation Plus subscribers may need to clear some space on their HDDs for this title as it clocks in at about 12.5GB total (in two downloads).
