Fight your way to freedom from the brink of despair. A series of strange disappearances have been occurring in the American Midwest within a place called Racoon City. A specialist squad of the police force known as S.
T. A. R.
S. has been investigating the case, and have determined that the pharmaceutical company Umbrella and their biological weapon, the T-Virus, are behind the incidents though they've lost several members in the process. Jill Valentine and the other surviving S.
T. A. R.
S. members try to make this truth known, but find that the police department itself is under Umbrella's sway and their reports are rejected out of hand. However, soon reports of a grisly "cannibal virus" begin to surface, and vicious dogs begin roaming the streets.
With the viral plague spreading through the town and to her very doorstep, Jill is determined to survive. However, unbeknownst to Jill, an extremely powerful pursuer has already been dispatched to eliminate her.
All in all, Resident Evil 3 goes on to prove that the traditional Resident Evil formula, only souped-up to meet today’s needs, works better than, excuse me for saying this out loud, the first-person flatness that was introduced in Resident Evil 7 or brainless shooting action of super-overvalued Resident Evil 4 that took the illustrious series entirely in the wrong direction, only to be redeemed by these excellent remakes.
Resident Evil 3 takes us back to Resident Evil 3: Nemesis roots. Capcom leaves survival horror back and instead mixes both action and horror. But don't get it wrong, because it works. Jill and Carlos are flawless, enemies are insane and Nemesis is Resident Evil 3's star once again. Just play it.
Resident Evil 3 Remake does a great job of reclaiming the potential the original already had, one of the franchise's most underrated installments. Some extra modes or replayability variety would have been welcome.
The return of Resident Evil 3 manages to maintain the balance between memory and adaptation. Even if the withdrawal of certain characteristic aspects of the original game could disappoint the most avid fans, the care taken in the reconstruction of the atmosphere and of the feeling it is visible an above all, perceivable. Nemesis could have more stage time, of course, but even so its presence hovers in the apocalypse of Raccoon City, and when it finally manifests itself, it is as beautiful as it is distressing.
After an explosive start, Resident Evil 3 on Xbox One quickly falls into a familiar rhythm. Having a Tyrant hunt you down is now the new norm for Resident Evil, but the most feared of all will always be Nemesis. He quickly disappears into the cutscenes however, without as much of an impact as you would perhaps hope. Thankfully though, there are enough environment and enemy variations crammed into this short experience that you never get a chance to settle down and acquaint yourself with any one enemy type, and as a survival horror game that is exactly how you want to feel.
Another great Resi remake that delivers action by the bucketload, but is somewhat lacking in replay value.
Resident Evil 3 is a short, heavily scripted and somewhat scrappy follow up to last year's sublime Resi 2 remake. The series' trademark slow-burn tension and gentle puzzling are replaced here by all-out action that feels far too safe and linear – for the most part, a series of tightly confined corridors bookended by sloppy boss battles and chase sequences which tend to wrestle control away from the player in an effort to add unnecessary cinematic flair. There are a handful of highlights; graphically, it's the best the series has ever looked and both Jill and Carlos are decent re-imaginings of the original characters but, overall, this one struggles to reach anywhere near the heights of its predecessor. Combat feels disappointing for the most part, the Nemesis is underutilised and the whole thing is over far too quickly, with very little in the way of replay value.
