  1. May not be as polished or pretty as "Code: Veronica," or as fast-paced and action-packed as "Dino Crisis 2," but it certainly has elements of both of those games in it.
  2. It may not look as scary as "Code Veronica," but you'll definitely need some extra loo roll.

    While there's nothing included that will crack the Earth with its monumental importance, it's certainly nice to know that the same old, same old has been presented with a nice, new bow.
  4. Get off your butt and go buy it -- there are ghoul heads out there in desperate need of 12-gauge amputation...
  5. 80
    The slightly newer look, added options, and all the classic RE gameplay are enough for me to recommend this game to expert RE players -- and those that have never played the PS version should really give this game a shot.
  6. It delivers everything which made the original Resident Evil so fantastic but on a bigger and grander scale. At a budget price, it's difficult to go wrong with this unless you already own it on PSX.
  7. 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!!

    I love Resident Evil. I felt this was the weakest in the series, but still a good game.
