    Only rabid third-installment fans and RE newbies need apply for this last escape.

    It's not a great looking game but that was never its strength. It's all about mood and it has it here in spades.

    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]

    Bundling both RE 2 and Nemesis would've been a very appealing package for new- and series-followers alike. Instead, you end up paying nearly full price for an old game.

    RE3's high price and disappointing lack of extras mean I can't recommend it as anything more than a rental for those new to the series. [Mar 2003, p.128]
  6. 50
    The gameplay design is still as brilliant as it ever was on the PSX, but the overall package is not even close to earning its sticker price.
  7. 40
    No one will mistake the visuals of Resident Evil 3 for anything other than a GameCube port of a Dreamcast port of a PlayStation game. But considering the source material is over three years old, it could've been worse.

I playedThis 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. Expand
