The Resident Evil: Deadly Silence wiki last edited by Yummylee on 07/28/14 02:44PM View full history


Making use of the DS touch screen

Resident Evil: Deadly Silence brings the classic survival horror series to the Nintendo DS. Deadly Silence is an enhanced port of the Playstation original, with two different modes. The first mode is Classic and is exactly the same as the Playstation original, but with the addition of the quick knife (hold L) and the 180 degree turn first introduced in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

Rebirth mode contains more enemies and ammo, as well as specific content for this mode that utilizes the unique functions of the DS. These include touch screen knife fights as well as puzzles using the touch screen and microphone for control.

The plot of the game is untouched from the very original Resident Evil, including all of the same hallmarks such as the dubious voice performances and dodgy localization work.

Additional Modes

Master of Knifing

The new Master of Knifing game mode

Referencing the infamous 'Master of Unlocking' line of dialogue, the Master of Knifing mode is unlocked after completing the game. It consists of 5 rounds of increasingly difficult knife fights, culminating with the fight against the giant snake Yawn from the main game.


In addition, there is a multiplayer mode for up to 4 players that involves getting from one end of the level to another either as a team or competitively, with multiple members of STARS playable and 3 maps to play on. One notable downside, however, is that the other players are invisible whenst playing the mode and are instead represented by colored stars on the map.
