    Resident Evil 3 is a stellar remake of a survival-horror classic that honors the past, while updating the game with contemporary graphics and controls.

    Resident Evil 3 retells the story of Jill's desperate escape from the doomed Raccoon City, using an intriguing plot and more fleshed out characters than the original. It falls short of the sheer amount of content its predecessors had, but it excels in moment to moment gameplay which it delivers in spades.

    In the end, Resident Evil 3 is own nemesis, a remake that's enjoyable but seems a little shallow when compared to the innovations the RE3 that came before it brought to the table.

    While last year’s Resident Evil 2 took the story and settings of the original game and expanded them into a finely tuned masterpiece, Resident Evil 3 feels like it took a much different approach. The story, and the path it takes from beginning to end, has seen some substantial changes compared to the original to the point where it’s sometimes difficult to see any semblance of its source material under this new coat of polygons and paint. That having been said, I did enjoy my time with Resident Evil 3 and I think that fans of the series, or fans of its predecessor, will enjoy it. However, one group I feel like it might struggle to impress are the fans of the original Resident Evil 3: Nemesis which is quite unfortunate after how well last year’s Resident Evil 2 was received.

    Fundamentally, Resident Evil 3 is two great chase scenes, four awesome boss fights, and a bunch of mediocre filler to make up the rest of the running time. It’s a magnificent, breathtaking ride the first time through, but once that initial ride is over, it becomes a competent zombie shooter and little else.

    If you’re looking for the authentic Resident Evil experience, this is definitely not it. But if you have a Resident Evil itch that you just need to scratch, this could provide lots of hours of entertainment for you, even without the Resident Evil Resistance standalone experience. But at the end of the day, I’d rather just play the excellent Resident Evil 2 Remake, or even the original Resident Evil 3 on my old PS2 instead.

    Resident Evil 3 is essentially a chain of action set-pieces, threaded together with a paper-thin story and a few too many cutscenes. This is the direction the series started to take post-Resident Evil 4, when it seriously lost its way and we ended up with the abysmal Resident Evil 6, and I'd hate to see that happen again.

    O jogo tem um visual muito bonito e imersivo. Jogabilidade é excelente e o tempo de jogo bem suficiente para o enredo proposto. Jogo fantástico.

    Is it a good Remake? Can't tell you, never cared for the original, even back in the day, its gameplay and fixed cameras felt too dated for me.Is it a good Remake? Can't tell you, never cared for the original, even back in the day, its gameplay and fixed cameras felt too dated for me.

    Is it a good game, though? Hell yeah. It's a bit short, finished it under 10h while taking my time, but it's good. Helps that I didn't quite pay full price, though.

    Is it better than RE2 Remake? Heeeh, well the level design's much weaker, but the characters and main antagonist are a lot cooler.

    Clearly not a bad game, but not a good one either. Completing the rather short campaign leaves me with mixed feelings, but most of all aClearly not a bad game, but not a good one either. Completing the rather short campaign leaves me with mixed feelings, but most of all a feeling that this isn't worth it's $60 price tag. A huge step back from RE2, both in technical aspects as well as storytelling and gameplay. The thrill is not there, sequences feel scripted, enemies are uninspiring and some of the most unique areas were cut from the original. Disappointing. Expand
