  1. Instead of being a series savior, Dead Aim is more like Pete Rose finally admitting he bet on baseball. Too little. Too late.

    It'll nonetheless scare the living crap out of would-be heroes and haters alike. Diverging from tradition, this is the game that finally puts the gun survivor series on the map.
  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. Whilst Dead Aim is executed sort of well, it just doesn't have anything memorable, is too short to be an engrossing one-player game and doesn't have many compelling reasons to be played through time and time again, because of the adventure elements, that are somewhat boring if you just want to shoot and shoot.
  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.
  7. The game does scare with quick zombies and limited lighting, but there's not much play to put this on target.

    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 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

    I think this game is creepier than all the other resident evil series capcom created I mean just look at it being trapped inside a mansion I think this game is creepier than all the other resident evil series capcom created I mean just look at it being trapped inside a mansion full of zombies is not scary even for the characters because if you have more than one character the same with Esident Evil 2 and 3 because they still have partners even though just thinking your city over-run by zombies makes your heart stop but Dead-aim is full of scare factors just look at this game's series of events. You are an umbrella agent trying to recover the T-virus working alone with nobody on-board but you, dead guys scattered all over the ship and hordes of zombies waiting to eat you in a ship in the middle of nowhere with no chance of escape and your only hope is to forget about your mission and survive. That kind of story brings out a 100% scare to anyone who has not played the Resident Evil series and even brings out nightmares from even the most experienced Resident Evil players all over the world but the gameplay is very similar to the House of the Dead series but it is a ground-breaking series which follows the footsteps of it's cousins.

    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 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
