    You dont see alot of Harry Potter resident evil crossovers out there, and the ones you do see are very wierd if not completely stupid. I think this is kind of good not the best but good enough for me. i give it 3.5/5

    Just a quick question before I give it a try. Would one have to know about Resident evil to understand the story. Or is it understandable by all?

    Ummm I dont really know. It starts before the first game, but its also a mesh of the games and the movies.

    It would be better if you linked to the first chapter...I ruined the story by starting at the sixth.

    Anyways...

    Can you say fangirl?

    Granted, it does get better in later chapters, but it's not anything that going to make you swoon.

    2.5/5

    I kinda like it. The action promises to be pretty good, and the author writes well, so it's all the more enjoyable to me.

    4/5

    Resident Evil, hmm? That fandom used to have some pretty sweet stories, years back.

    I'ma read this and give an opinion at a later time.

    if you can get past some of the fangirlness and the rubbish in the early chapters than it is pretty good. i only wish we saw some of his training at the RPD, would of made it more interesting. 4/5

    Way too drawn out. Over-dramatized description for every minor detail, Harry is pretty stupid and creepy, and acts like he's Moody or something. 3/5 for decent writing style, but the lack of magic, and Harry's bad characterization makes me want to quit reading.

    This is a poorly written fantasy that isn't worth the time spent reading.

    Interesting once you get past the first few chapters. I get the feeling magic is going to play a big part later. He's already using transfiguration and charms on his stuff. 4/5.

    Yeah, the story's not bad and it's got some potential. 3/5.

    There's some cheesy elements, like the moody/creepy Harry stuff. Also, Harry's got no less than four eye colours: red, green, gold, and amber; not to mention various combinations. That and the precognition/sixth sense business makes me want to roll my eyes.

    I'm not really sure why the author felt the need to send Harry to an alternate universe. It doesn't trouble me. It just seemed rather irrelevant.

    So often in crossovers, the antagonists prove to pose little opposition. The author's going to have a tricky time creating believable conflict for a powerful, experienced magical and muggle trained soldier. Either Harry's going to have to act like an idiot and forget that he can apparate, or the author's going to have to scale back Harry's magical prowess somewhat.

    Personally, I'd rather see a more muggle Harry rather than an idiot Harry.
