A series of strange disappearances have been occurring in the American Midwest within a place called Racoon City. A specialist squad of the police force known as S.T.A.R.S. has been investigating the case, and have determined that the pharmaceutical company Umbrella and their biological weapon, the T-Virus, are behind the incidents though they've lost several members in the process. Jill Valentine and the other surviving S.T.A.R.S. members try to make this truth known, but find that the police department itself is under Umbrella's sway and their reports are rejected out of hand.

    However, soon reports of a grisly "cannibal virus" begin to surface, and vicious dogs begin roaming the streets. With the viral plague spreading through the town and to her very doorstep, Jill is determined to survive.
    However, unbeknownst to Jill, an extremely powerful pursuer has already been dispatched to eliminate her.

    Resident Evil 3 proves that Resident Evil 2 wasn’t just a one-off success of a remake and shows that Capcom has a winning formula on its hands.

    Capcom has once again delivered an incredible remake of a twenty year old classic. From it's incredible visuals to the excellent action-horror gameplay, the Resident Evil 3 remake succeeds in almost every aspect. Thanks to some masterful touches and a wealth of gameplay refinements, Capcom has made a game that feels right at home in the 2020 triple-A space and fans of the series will love every moment.

    Resident Evil 3 fails to reach the heights of Resident Evil 2 remake, has a shorter and easier campaign and cuts off some iconic locations like The Clock Tower and Raccoon Park.

    If Resident Evil 3 is still a pretty good game, its content is way too weak and its multiplayer mode can't make up for the loss…Last year's Resident Evil 2 is way better, but the new Nemesis has its undeniable charm.

    Resident Evil 3 is uncomfortable but exhilarating. There’s a thrill in the danger, like roaming a haunted house or riding a roller coaster.

    Fans may not forgive some of the cuts made to the basic story, while newbies will enjoy an epic that is worth a look. Asymmetrical multiplayer mode struggles to convince.

    It’s still worth playing, but Resident Evil 3 Remake is a step backwards for Capcom, coming off the back of one of the best games of last year. It’s gorgeous to look at, the jump scares will get you, and it’s like stepping into a comfy pair of slippers. But even though your feet are cosy, it never feels like home.

While the Nemesis set pieces disappoint, the story and pacing of the game do not. I left Resident Evil 3 a bit perplexed at the poor reviews it was receiving. The sound and audio are great, controls super smooth on the beloved RE Engine, with solid visuals to boot. More importantly, the gameplay is fantastic, with plenty of replayability on multiple playthroughs as Resident Evil games are intended to have. While it falls short of the masterpiece value that RE2 possesses, there is no reason NOT to be excited about adding this one to your collection. Expand

    Let me preface this by saying this game is very playable, with most games this day and age I hardly ever have the motivation to play very muchLet me preface this by saying this game is very playable, with most games this day and age I hardly ever have the motivation to play very much of whatever game im picking up, mainly because 3d games don't resemble art usually/ the developers made a game thats the same thing as everything else in the genre but with slight variations, now resident evil 3 is ok, there arent any offensive decisions made by the developer in the main game, other than sometimes the backgrounds in the cutscenes are blurrier than a ps2 game, many many pixels like they rushed those scenes, this game along with re2 isn't really meant for nostalgia, its more like they wanted re2 re3 to fill the place as a "new resident evil game" which im on the fence about, I usually don't like remakes, I feel they just want to cut out a lot of the work it would take to make a new game, there isn't much to say about this game, its hardly memorable, or exciting and new, the games really short I almost finished it in a day, the mechanics/controls feel fine, but I don't find myself looking forward to doing anything in the game, my favorite parts got cut out (I was actually looking forward to seeing the clock tower, its so iconic to me) I don't feel this "perfect 3d model representation of re3" really fits the art direction of the original at all, and because of this it doesnt feel like resident evil 3, it doesnt have the vibe nor the atmosphere, nemesis used to make me tense now hes completely pervious to your attacks, this isnt a horror game at all, horror is horrific, causes emotions, is supposed to be shocking, its supposed to make you scared, hell its atleast supposed to cause empathy/understanding of what the characters going through/make you go "damn I'm glad im not in their shoes"(resident evil 7 is a perfect example of a true horror game, while it lasted) when it doesn't do that anymore, its starting to get stale, they didnt recapture resident evil 3 with this remake Expand

J'attendais beaucoup de ce remake de RE3 et au final on se retrouve avec beaucoup moins d'éléments que dans l'original. Pas d’énigmes, pas de beffroi, pas de choix scénaristique, moins de types d'ennemis, seulement 3 boss (toutes étant des variantes du Nemesis). Bref, le jeu n'est pas fini quoi ! Expand

I mean, isn’t it obvious that what made RE 2 remake a huge success was the entire nostalgia that the OG RE2 offered??? So why DELETE that from this one???!!

    Instead you offer this online crap I am so tired of online gaming ruining EVERYTHING. You would think Capcom would be different with nostalgia games
