  1. As a first time player of Resident Evil I found very little to dislike about the game, except for that I would like to have seen less puzzle and more action, and that's me being nitpicky.
  2. Sporting sharper, smoother graphics, and a few new odds and ends, fans of the RE series who haven't tromped through the many PlayStation iterations will appreciate this conversion.
  3. I got a plate of old brains, stale brains, brains that had been stuffed in Tupperware, stored in the fridge and briefly reheated in the microwave.

The ability to quick turn, toggle while targeting, and mix gunpowder were welcome additions. Back to back playthroughs are rarely ever the same as solutions to puzzles and pop-up scare locations change, and player decisions influence the way the plot unfolds. RE3 closes out the Raccoon City chapter of the series with S.T.A.R.S officer Jill Valentine's final attempt to escape the giant graveyard, evading zombies, mutants, Umbrella mercs, and a powerful new Bioweapon; Nemesis. Like Mr. X before him, this nemesis will stop at nothing to locate and terminate you, and is far more equipped to do so. As if having the hunting prowess of Predator, the speed of a Jamaican sprinter, the bulk of an NFL linebacker, and the face of Sam Cassell weren't scary enough, they had the audacity to give this guy a rocket launcher!!
