Resident Evil: Dead Aim is a fast paced shooter that is the next Survivor game. The last Survivor didn't do too well, so how does this one stack up?

Story: The basic plot of Resident Evil: Dead Aim is that an Umbrella cruise ship is hijacked and the virus was let loose somehow and your sent in to figure things out. Overall, the story isn't that compelling.

Gameplay: The game is played in typical Resident Evil fashion - where you're looking around, finding clues to what happened and blasting zombies and creatures along the way. The interesting thing about this one is that the action, when shooting, takes place in first person perspective but goes to third person perspective when walking around the ship. This one tends not to have any puzzles in it at all and just a bunch of fetch quests. Find this key here and go there. Overall, it's fun, but the lack of puzzles cuts the time down on a already short and easy game. Plus, this just isn't very scary and that's a trademark of the series.

Graphics: The graphics in this game are quite nice but still not up to par of REmake and RE:Zero. They're crisp and clear, but the lighting could have been a lot better and the slowdown that occurs when too many creatures are on the screen don't help the graphics either. It just makes the game not have as much atmosphere as most Resident Evil games.

Control: The control is quite simple and effective. Switching into first from third and back is easy and pulled off nice. Overall, a very easy game to get into and play.

Sound: The sound is typical. The music that plays, when it does, is decent and the sound effects are good. Nothing beats hearing the sound of moaning zombies to pump you up. The music only plays at certain times though and there isn't enough of it. Watch out for the B movie voice acting though, its back and in full effect.

Overall: Now you might be thinking that this review is short, but there really just isn't much to talk about. Resident Evil: Dead Aim is a lot better then the first Survivor, but a lot more still needs to be done. There needs to be more story for one. Also, the length needs to be increased along with the difficulty. Overall, this game has it moments and it's fun but once you're done, there is little to no reason to play it again. Definitely a rental.
