    Simply put this is a boring and unpolished product.

    First impressions? Very bored after experiencing poor voice acting, reading boring text about the relationship dynamics between uninspired characters Ray, Mike and Michelle. After that I went through a standard tutorial ... Read Full Review

    Really not as bad as some people say.

    The Resident Evil series may not be the first survival horror series ever created, but it did popularize the genre with its story, concept of one man/woman facing an army of zombies, and acting ranging from abysmal to de... Read Full Review

    Good for passing the time, but once your done it's boring.

    When I first played this game, I thought it was awesome (although i'm insectaphobic) and I kept playing through the first few levels. Then the next morning, I payed for it. My right arm was hurting for 2 days. I have ... Read Full Review

    Worst game I've ever played, ever.

    Survival horror is a fairly popular game franchise due solely to the success of one series of game. That series of games involves zombies, mutants with blades for arms, and just recently parasites infecting hispanic peop... Read Full Review

    I surprisingly loved it!!!

    This was way better then the reviewers say it is. The Graphics are alright, but they hold up well for the game. The Controls work most of the time, but there are times when you forget that you have to swing to hit someth... Read Full Review

    *Spoiler alert* This Game could have been waaay better!

    This Game could have been better because they failed to give us a good introduction of the situation! They skipped all the explanations to what was the island and why the bugs were so huge! The plot was a definite clich... Read Full Review

    Escape from Bug Island fails to deliver in Japan, and it continues to fail in the US.

    Escape from Bug Island is classified as a Horror Action Game, of which Resident Evil is part of. What's funny is even at its worst, Resident Evil was never this bad. The story is simple enough. You are Ray, a non-lo... Read Full Review
