Description official descriptions

It's believed that Umbrella, the creators of the deadly virus that wiped out Raccoon City, has developed a new Bio Organic Weapon on a cruise ship called the Starlight, which is on its way to Europe. One S.T.A.R.S. member, Leon S Kennedy (from Resident Evil 2) was sent out to destroy the weapon, but the team have been unable to contact him since he arrived at the ship.

Using a combination of top down side-scrolling action and 1st person shooter, it is your job to get aboard the liner, currently floating in the Atlantic Ocean, destroy the weapon and find Leon. Along the way, you'll come across plenty of deadly undead enemies, similar to those found in the original Resident Evil series, while using a range of weapons and items found in the ship.

Awful. Just plain awful.

The Good
It was a Resident Evil game. So, of course I bought. It just so happened that my mum had a GameBoy that had color. So I played it, feeling excited. It has a great story, but it is not linked to past stories. Supposedly, it was the unused story for Resident Evil: Dead Aim.

The Bad
The graphics are terrible due to the limitations. Among the worst ever. You could die very easily and quickly. Just didn't seem anything other than a one-sided zombie battle. Barry Burton is a cool character, but Capcom do not show him the love he deserves. Besides, having a cameo in Nemesis, he has not really been involved in the actual plot and war against Umbrella since. Hell, where was he during The Umbrella Chronicles? They put Jill and Chris together. Wasn't one of them supposed to be locked in a cell?

The Bottom Line
Just bad. I mean, really bad. Not worth the cardboard box it even comes in. I think I'd rather play any RE spin off (even Survivor) than this pile of zombie dung!

The word "Gaiden" in the title is Japanese for "sidestory".
