    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]

    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.

    Mantengo lo dicho en la critica de Resident Evil 2, solo que aquí nuestro amigo Nemesis nos hace estar en constante tensión.

    realmente um clássico do horror, para selar de vez a sobrevivência e a trilogia no terceiro game do antigo Playstation 1.

The weakest of the first three games, Nemesis feels like an expansion of Resident Evil 2. It's biggest feature is the Nemesis; a terrifying hulk that makes the Tyrant look friendly. As Jill Valentine, you explore the streets of Raccoon City and its police department days after the events of RE 2. This is more of an action game than survival horror. It's faster-paced than its predecessors and also the shortest of the three. Once you finish it, you get access to the arcade-style mode The Mercenaries. If you loved the first two RE installments, then you'll probably just like this one. It's a fun, entertaining entry, but also the least exciting. I would give it an 8.8 out of 10. Expand
