It is said that the worst enemies are those you can't see... never has this been more true than in Sega Saturn exclusive Enemy Zero. One of three games in now-defunct WARP's "[[VideoGame/{{D}} D Trilogy]]", the game has you playing as Laura, an amnesiac on a space station attacked by aliens. Seems like a fairly standard set-up, right? Well, the aliens are invisible. Not only that, but unlike most SurvivalHorror games, you only have one life to your name. Yes, one hit, and the game's over. Whether this is a challenge or a cheap shot is up to the player, and indeed opinions on this game are mixed, but for those interested, it's worth a shot.
