  1. There are enough satisfying nuggets of 'survival horror turned "Virtua Cop" clone w/limited movement' goodness to make this odd curiosity worth playing for most, and maybe even worth owning by the "RE" fanatics.
  2. Brilliant. You'll certainly be having a bit of a laugh, as well as being scared out of your pants.
  3. 70
    Resident Evil fanatics will probably hate it and call it a travesty, but remove the Resident Evil tag and it's a damn good zombie shooter with a revolutionary control system.
  4. If you're not a RE fan, don't even spend the effort to look at the back of the jewel case.
  5. RES tries its best to be a fusion of two drastically different genres, and it unfortunately limits itself with difficult control and tedious gameplay.
  6. This lame first-person shooter with no visual or visceral delights is an insult to the brand name that is Resident Evil.
  7. 40
    It'll provide you with about four hours maximum of campy, brainless shooting kicks. Just don't blame me for feeling dirty afterward, because you will, oh yes, you will.
  8. Looking for zombie-blasting kicks? Leave this one buried.
  9. 40
    The scariest thing about this game is how awful it is.
  10. Of little interest to any gamer -- hardcore, half-dead or otherwise.

    This RE version is full of mystic and mysterious soundtrack that is so penetrating to my soul. I enjoyed playing it and living it. I also like the graphics and its gloomy nature, more adding to the true feel of RE. Thanks. Full Review »

    No, its not the best game, no, its not a horror game. But, it is a fun game. Its also pretty hard. Dont listen to critics. The only reason they wont review it good, is because of one of these:
    1. They are jealous that they cant have it on there craptendo and its PS1 exclusive.
    2. They find it too hard and are losers.

    This game isn't perfect and could use a bit of fine-tuning, but I actually enjoyed Survivor. It was an FPS that actually functioned properly on the PSone and was mostly fun to play. Sure the graphics and story are bad, and moving your character is slow, but this game is still quite fun to play and offers a decent time. There's plenty of weapons, lots of enemies to shoot, and some interesting bosses. Don't write it off just because of the bad reviews from critics, this game is decent. Full Review »
