The majority of the game takes place in the midst of Raccoon City. Jill Valentine blasts zombies and runs through alleys whilst being chased by Nemesis. The story is lacking here, but is pretty straight forward. The game feels more actions packed, but it's essentially the same as RE1 and RE2. The game has more fun gimmicks. RE3 is challenging and the best looking Resident Evil on PSone. The gamecube version provides smoother backgrounds and models.… Full Review »

The horror that the unknown caused you now has a face and a name: Nemesis, the persuer. This has its drawbacks, of course. While in every resident evil the surprise factor was what keeped the game's replay value alive, the replay factor is extremely low here, since the only real threat throughout the whole game is Nemesis and nothing more, so knowing where he will be annihilates 90% of the fun/scares.
They knew this, so they added different paths and prices if you defeated the antagonist in every encounter you had and not only the scripted ones. But this made the game even less scary, because Nemesis would eventually become another irrelevant miniboss instead of a unstoppable killing machine.
It all boils down to the fact that Lisa Trevor is a much more relentless beast than Nemesis, which is a real disgrace.
Plus, this version comes after the RE remake for the GC, so I felt incredibly disappointed after finding out its a just a port, without any kind of extra content, graphical improvement or new gameplay.
If you have never played this game before, get it. If you have it for previous consoles, ignore it as its just the same.… Full Review »
