    One step forward for a portable RE, two steps back for gameplay.

    Pros: detailed enemies and environments, nice lighting Cons: broken game mechanics, not entertaining, no diversity, repetitive Though fundamentals are in place, the game is very different from a traditional Resident ... Read Full Review

    BARRY?!?! WHERE'S BARRY?!?!?! Not on the boxart obviously!

    Who asked for this title to be made? Who thought it was a good idea to even THINK an RE game would work on the GBC system? Were people really this desperate for an RE title to take on the go? An were they expecting a tit... Read Full Review

    Resident evil Gaiden. Why oh why do you exist?

    Might be the worst resident evil, ever. The combat system was horrid. The back and forth cursor was just pathetic. The graphics are pretty sad. The story was forgotten and never really was referenced to ever again. No ... Read Full Review

    The first and only Resident Evil on the Game Boy Color, not too bad but not too great either

    Resident Evil Gaiden is a non-canon spinoff in the Resident Evil series for the Game Boy Color, for those who don't know, canon means the events of a story takes place, and non-canon means the events of a story are unrel... Read Full Review

    Resident Evil in the palm of your hand.

    Probably the most unknown Resident Evil game of them all, solely for it appearing on the GBC. The game plays like a 3rd person adventure, then when in combat with a zombie or creature, switches to a first person view whe... Read Full Review

    Completely unplayable

    I got this used, and became really excited for the story elements that were supposed to flesh out the details about what happens to Leon between RE2 and 4. Sadly, within 30 minutes of plugging away at this lackluster tit... Read Full Review

    Simply the worst Resident Evil game ever.

    This is the worst Resident Evil I have ever played. The story is twisted to be along with the other series. There are only small amount of different enemies, and weapons. The game isn't even fun. Graphics are poor, e... Read Full Review
