  1. Instead of being a series savior, Dead Aim is more like Pete Rose finally admitting he bet on baseball. Too little. Too late.
  2. It’s a nice combination of horror and hysterics, a fresh take long overdue with this style of game.
  3. While the game isn't nearly long enough to be considered a true Resident Evil title, it's still up to five times longer than other light gun shooters, is more immersive, looks better, and gives more incentive for replay than other light gun games on the market.

    Dead Aim did something we didn't expect -- it made us want to play it until we beat it (a feat that previous Gun Survivor versions made us cringe over).
  5. Good graphics, a short quest (by “RE” standards), mediocre music/sounds and a permanent sense that you’re playing an action game that’s trying to be a “House of the Dead”-type shooter (or is it a light-gun shooter that’s trying to be survival horror adventure?) diminish Dead Aim’s appeal as it moves along.
  6. The attack patterns are pedestrian, the level designs confined and the environments repetitive. The third-person adventure side to the game fails to progress beyond ‘find-the-key/unlock-the-door’ business end of the genre.

    Just an average Resident Evil knockoff with a gimmick. [July 2003, p.58]

    Love this game with all my feels one of the most unrated games in history and RE series, awesome music, great graphics, epic boss fight and great atmosphere, the only problem that i found it is to very short.. :( Expand

    This Is a great First-Person shoot 'em up. It is different from the rest because of such good graphics. i haven't played on the game but I have seen it being played. You can instantly tell it's easier than Time Crisis because the targets (most of them) are almost impossible to miss. Expand

    A great game, suspense from the beginning, superior to the other RE details.

    Although too short, and with somwhat difficult controls, This was the most fun Ive had with a RE title in along time (can you say one shot kills, with the pistol !), Dead Aim is a step in the right direction, would recommend it for any true RE fan. Grab a guncon 2 and have some fun. Expand

    This one is generally underrated. It's without a doubt the best light gun game I've played by a long shot, and should really be compared to others in that genre. It's very refreshing not being restricted to rails like every other one such as Time Crisis/Virtua Cop/HOTD series, and not a mere shooting gallery like the Point Blank games. As for it being worse than previous RE games, that's simply a matter of opinion. Everyone's sick and tired of the RE series' mechanics, which thankfully, FINALLY (about damn time), were mostly dealt with in RE4. And of course, Dead Aim. No it's not as long as previous RE games, but it's not nearly as annoying to play either. And it's actually lengthy for a lightgun game. Expand

    EN: Mixed feelings about it. It doesn't looks like a Resident Evil game, and most importantly, it doesn't plays like a Resident Evil game, but is decent experience.
    PT-BR: Me traz uma sensação mista. Ele não se parece com um Resident Evil, e não joga como um Resident Evil, mas proporciona uma experiência decente.
