    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

    Nice attempt to make RE portable, but could have been a lot better
