    This is the first Resident evil game that I ever played and I was blown away by the bloody horror atmosphere and addictive gameplay. I played a demo of this as a teenager and then had to buy the game. This is the best RE game that was made for PS1. The Nemesis is terrifying and comes charging out of nowhere at times. Great atmosphere and music. This game is a true classic.

    RE3 feels similar to RE2. 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. Collapse

  1. In all seriousness, games should come clearly stickered with a 'Best Before' date to ward off unsuspecting punters. These are two zombie shooters that should never have been exhumed.
  2. Worth owning if you're an RE freak or new to the series, but everyone else can rest easy knowing this isn't a must-have. [Apr 2003, p.89]
  3. Plain and simple, if you played/own this game on any other system that it’s been on then don’t bother handing over your cash for this one, there is nothing new or different in it.
