After the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis'', Barry Burton and Leon Kennedy joined a secret anti-Umbrella organisation, comprised of former S.T.A.R.S. members and ex-Umbrella employees and set on putting a stop to the operations of the evil medical corporation.

The game starts with the escape of a shape-shifting Bio-Organic Weapon developed at Umbrella Labs. Leon managed to track it as far as the ocean cruiser The Starlight before contact with him was lost. Now Barry must board the ship to find him, as well as figure out the mystery of a young girl he finds aboard.

The game itself is an overhead adventure game where the player controls a party of up to three characters (Barry, Leon and Lucia), switching between them at any time. Battles occur when the player character runs into a monster, in which the game switches to a first-person view and must align their aiming gauge to where the monster is centered.
