Resident Evil Gaiden received generally unfavorable reviews from critics. GamePro remarked that the visual presentation is taking away from the intended creepy atmosphere.[5] IGN criticized the game's impractical save system for a handheld game and was unsatisfied with the puzzles being reduced to collecting keys and items.[7] GameSpot addressed the same issues in their review, though they applauded the clever storyline for its many twists and turns.[6]
