    Tout comme le deux, je le trouve un poil en dessous des épisodes 0, Rebirth et 7. Le jeu est littéralement porté par Nemesis, qui est le véritable stress du jeu (où va-t-il surgir ? quand ? comment ?). Bref, si je pouvais mettre un demi point, je lui mettrai 8,5 rien que pour Nemesis. ^^

    There is a small change of tone between the previous titles (and some titles that came after this one) and RE3. 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 realThere is a small change of tone between the previous titles (and some titles that came after this one) and RE3.

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.

    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 lookingRE3 feels similar to RE2. The majority of the game takes place in the midst of Raccoon City.

The gamecube version provides smoother backgrounds and models. Collapse

    I'm paying full price for an old game that I've already beaten on psx and 64.... the graphics are the same and no new extras or hidden bonuses... it's not a must have...

  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.

    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.
