So the same BIOHAZARD/RESIDENT EVIL errors found in Vol 1 in this one?


I'd be interested in knowing the answer to this as well. Thanks in advance!

Yes, it looks to be the same as it appears to be a reprint. What errors did you want me to verify?

The original run of Volume 1 has been out of print and sold out for at least 2-3 years if not longer.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Just got mine... shipped in a box with no side padding, so the corners are dinged up. I remember the days when Amazon knew how to pack items.:-?

I really wish they had just made this into one giant book, instead of wrapping the two together.

That would have been a lot nicer overall. My theory is they had a lot of Volume 2 left because they printed a lot more as to not run out like they did with Vol 1. As such they reprinted just Vol 1 and grouped it with Vol 2 to "force" people who may own Vol 2 to buy the bundle to get Vol 1, thus decreasing stock of Vol 2.

Mine came the same way, and one of the corners was ripped. Requested a replacement.

Mine came finally came in. Had 2 other books with it so it got packaged in a bigger box, no dings/dmg. For the price I don't mind them wrapping two individual books together.

My order came in a few days ago, packaged well enough that there was no damage to either book. It's a pretty sweet deal for $26, and I like the series enough to feel that this was a good purchase. :)

Wasn't the first one originally a hardcover? The one in my bundle is a softcover. Or am I remembering wrong?

I am bit disappointed that this shipped as two separate books. Looks like they wanted to clear stock on Archives 2 or something.

I am glad I kept my original print Archives 1, the back cover is different so you can tell the reprint from the original.

I'm just happy they reprinted it. Better than paying so much for the first. They need to do a reprint of the Phoenix Wright book sometime.

I'm disappointed in these books. I want more concept and original art and less screenshots from the games. Many concept art pictures are thumbnail size. Way too tiny to thoroughly enjoy the details. There are a lot of repeated text which is just a waste. Some of the writing is just bad and cheesey. http://residentevil....ident_Evil_Wiki probably has more in-depth story details.

These "Archive" books are just enhanced game instruction manuals. I'd return it if it cost me anything, but I was very fortunate that Amazon messed up somewhere. Check out a copy at Barnes before you make your purchase.

The whole Biohazard/Resident Evil..........looks like someone got lazy and told word/indesign to Find and replace all Biohazard with RE and so on. I found that pretty quick when I first read it.
