For you Saturn gamers out there who want more Resident Evil-style action--and don't mind getting it from Japan--consider Deep Fear. Be aware: Although the game has English dialogue (really, REALLY terrible dialogue), there are a lot of instances where you have to make decisions based on on-screen Japanese text. But with walk-throughs and what-not that will undoubtedly pop up on the Internet, this shouldn't be much of a problem.
So here's the basic story line: There's a U.S. Naval supply base fora submarine called Big Table deep in an ocean trench. While refueling a nuclear submarine called the Sea Fox, the sub suddenly goes out of control and crashes into a top-secret area of the base. Big Table's commander in chief, Colonel Cransy, orders a private rescue team called ESR to rescue a scientist by the name of Dr. Wiseberg who's trapped somewhere on the defunct sub.
When John Mayor (ESR member and the guy you control) reaches the scene of the accident, he sees a heavily damaged facility and numerous casualties. During his investigation, one of the dying survivors says, "Kill me, please" and then turns into a hideous monster (like something out of Resident Evil or Parasite Eve) and attacks Mayor. Now the base is filled with freakish monsters and you're trapped inside. The sea water floods into the base, and the air supply is limited. Can you survive the situation? From here your adventures starts. You'll have to find people, manage your air supply, kill monsters, solve mysteries and have the crap scared out of you more than once. In most instances, before something important happens it's in the form of either a CG or in-game cutscene, like RE2. The graphics are in the style of RE, except Deep Fear takes place on an underwater base. There are weapon upgrades, health kits and other such items which make the game seem even more like RE. The controls and inventory system work just like Resident Evil too. In this sense, if you import Deep Fear there will be no problem getting the hang of how the game operates.
