Resident Evil has had its ups and downs over the years, but the one thing that it has consistently been know for – more or less – is good boss fights- especially final boss fights. Though there have been a couple of dips here and there in this area, too, there’s been a lot of really good stuff over the years as well. In this feature, we’ll be ranking the mainline Resident Evil boss fights from worst to best.
Without further ado, let’s get started.
#20. DEREK SIMMONS (RESIDENT EVIL 6 – ADA’S CAMPAIGN)
Resident Evil 6 is no stranger to criticism, but while the parts of the game that series fans hate most are those that are a bit too ridiculously explosion-y, the final boss fight against Simmons in Ada’s campaign could have used with some of that. The biggest sin that this boss commits is that it’s dull- it’s easy to settle into a superficial pattern and make your way through a significant portion of the fight just going through the motions, without any real challenge or engagement.
