So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

What do these ratings mean?

When playing classic games that are still living on and evolving today, you notice the problems they have. With a game like Resident Evil, one cannot help but point out the grainy yet scary graphics and  wooden control scheme. Espeically when the revamped version known as Resident Evil 4 came out, the game has become a quick classic and a favorite amongst the gaming community.

When Nintendo and Capcom released the DS version of this recent classic, many were excited about it. Despite the new mini-games that were interlaced into the game, not much has changed really, for better and for worse.

Graphics- The game has good graphics for the DS, considering it's a handheld, but it is also the same graphics as the Playstation version. The similar, grainy textures and polygon looking characters are still ugly looking, but the game is fluid and a real blast from the past. The only problem is the load times, as it breaks up the action slightly. Other than that, not much else going on.

Final Score- B

Gameplay- The game is, in it's core form, a port of the 1996 game on the Playstation. The only difference is you use the touch screen to move, use your inventory, fire, etc. It works well, despite the controls mimic the old style of the game, where it takes 3 minutes to move in the right direction.

Other than that, they added some mini-games into the mix, which are ok, but nothing great. Not much honestly, not much at all.

Final Score- C

Sound- Same sound as the origional game, for better or for worse really. Again, nothing much.

Final Score- C-

Overall- Resident Evil, Deadly Silence is a good game to have, as it brings a classic into the current generation. Zombie Duke said it best, it would be great if more games are ported like this on the handhelds, classics today make games for tomorrow. Sure, they may seem a bit dated, but there is a reason they are here of course. If your a fan, play it. It may be old, but it's still good.

Final Score- B-

Overall Score- C+
