Resident Evil 3 Nemesis Movie 1

  1. With Nemesis, Capcom once again get you to sit in the homicidal barber's chair while he draws a honed blade with grating tension across your exposed throat. This time the tension and the moment when it suddenly cuts to the bone are taken to an even higher screaming point.

    Capcom would do well to bring out a PC-only Resident Evil title that caters to what the PC does best -- first person blastin'!

    With its shocking horror sequences, macabre pre-rendered backgrounds, and terrifying in-game ambience, RE3 will give PC gamers a shocking treat.
  4. The best Resident Evil title to date for the PC. The simple reason for that is the improved gameplay, particularly the enhanced puzzle elements and the addition of Nemesis and the game-altering choice screens he brings with him.
  5. Resident Evil 3 isn't the best place to start for a newcomer to the series. It's a zombie-killing rampage that lacks the inventive game structure that made "Resident Evil 2" so good.
  6. Capcom obviously strove to create a game that would preserve the spirit and outlooks of its prequels (read - it's another damn PSX1 port). It seems that they pushed this tendency one step too far, and forgot to actually deliver anything new to the gaming scene.
  7. Poor translation from console to PC, nothing really new or engaging about the gameplay and the fact that you’d swear this was a DOS game combine to make this an awful gaming experience.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Destaco que hayan puesto a la poderosísima Jill Valentine, lo mejor del juego. En fin, buenos personajes, gráficas, etc. Las calles de Raccon City son hermosas, es uno de los primeros juegos de ps1 que jugué,y no sabía la joya con la que me iba a encontrar. Expand

    Classic - it is sure a classic. I was only now able to get to know the Resident Evil series, so I can't "evaluate it from my bell tower" as ifClassic - it is sure a classic. I was only now able to get to know the Resident Evil series, so I can't "evaluate it from my bell tower" as if I had played in the past, as a child, but I will try to be a little stratified and to do that:
    "Eternal doors" ...I hate those long animations. But I understand that in old game this was done to load locations and so on.
    Very tight control. There is no longer an excuse here as "old age". I played other old games now and the controls there was plus-minus adequate, but in this game everything is very tight: stand still while shooting, slow turns(turning on 180dgr does not always help). This can be felt very strongly in a fight with enemies that cannot be killed in a couple of seconds, especially in skirmishes with Nemesis.
    Interesting plot and atmosphere. Good made locations and puzzles... Generally it's a good game, but I can't give it 10 or 9 because I didn't receive much pleasure as I could with that tight and not convenient for me control.

    Troisième rejeton des Résidents Débiles et inutile de se voiler la face ou de faire durer le suspense : c’est (encore) une pauvre merde !Troisième rejeton des Résidents Débiles et inutile de se voiler la face ou de faire durer le suspense : c’est (encore) une pauvre merde ! Notons cependant qu’il y a des niveaux de difficulté et qu’on commence ce jeu (de merde) avec un fusil d’assaut ! c’est dingue, ça ! notons aussi néanmoins qu’il faut tout se farcir au clavier intégral : pas de souris, pas de manette : va donc chier le pctron !

    Oui, je parle de la version PC, laquelle fonctionne tout de même sur XP (dingue, ça !) mais sans souris ni manette… enfin, pas la manette 360 mais il est écrit dans le manuel que la Sidewinder est prise en compte… la Sidewinder ! de toute façon, pas de port joystick pour la brancher, vu que ma dernière carte son qui marche, je l’ai léguée à ma config des écrans bleus sur Win98). Et puis, faudrait que je la retrouve…

    Bon, de toute façon, ça se joue avec trois touches qui se battent en duel… et le jeu n’est con-stitué que de caméras fixes à la con (comme d’habitude) et surtout, surtout, tu ne peux pas sauvegarder quand tu veux, et puis quoi encore hein…?! Faut d’abord trouver une machine à écrire… ah, je vais peut-être pouvoir sauvegarder, tiens… ah mais non, connard, il faut aussi trouver un ruban encreur et revenir à la putain de machine à écrire ! bah putain…!

    Pas de mini-carte non plus pendant qu’on y est (et puis quoi encore, t’es fou, toi…!) mais une carte qui prend tout l’écran qu’on passe sa vie à ouvrir et fermer : c’est d’un chiant… oui, j’e m’en souviens bien maintenant : c’est F6, échap pour fermer, F6, échap, F6, échap… Et là tiens, tu peux pas ouvrir la porte, là, parce que t’as pas (encore) trouvé le briquet, connaaard…!

    Alors, ce gros jeu de merde marche quand même y compris en 1024×768, tout accéléré Direct3D, bah dis donc ! certes, ça change du VGA de la plaiestassion mais bon… on note quelques artefacts graphiques quand même. Oui, c’est un gros portage de merde d’un sale jeu de merde, j’ai bien compris ! je le donne à ma poubelle, elle se débrouillera avec.
