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.

    All in all, Resident Evil 3 goes on to prove that the traditional Resident Evil formula, only souped-up to meet today’s needs, works better than, excuse me for saying this out loud, the first-person flatness that was introduced in Resident Evil 7 or brainless shooting action of super-overvalued Resident Evil 4 that took the illustrious series entirely in the wrong direction, only to be redeemed by these excellent remakes.

    Resident Evil 3 takes us back to Resident Evil 3: Nemesis roots. Capcom leaves survival horror back and instead mixes both action and horror. But don't get it wrong, because it works. Jill and Carlos are flawless, enemies are insane and Nemesis is Resident Evil 3's star once again. Just play it.

    Resident Evil 3 Remake does a great job of reclaiming the potential the original already had, one of the franchise's most underrated installments. Some extra modes or replayability variety would have been welcome.

    The return of Resident Evil 3 manages to maintain the balance between memory and adaptation. Even if the withdrawal of certain characteristic aspects of the original game could disappoint the most avid fans, the care taken in the reconstruction of the atmosphere and of the feeling it is visible an above all, perceivable. Nemesis could have more stage time, of course, but even so its presence hovers in the apocalypse of Raccoon City, and when it finally manifests itself, it is as beautiful as it is distressing.

    After an explosive start, Resident Evil 3 on Xbox One quickly falls into a familiar rhythm. Having a Tyrant hunt you down is now the new norm for Resident Evil, but the most feared of all will always be Nemesis. He quickly disappears into the cutscenes however, without as much of an impact as you would perhaps hope. Thankfully though, there are enough environment and enemy variations crammed into this short experience that you never get a chance to settle down and acquaint yourself with any one enemy type, and as a survival horror game that is exactly how you want to feel.

    Another great Resi remake that delivers action by the bucketload, but is somewhat lacking in replay value.

    Resident Evil 3 is a short, heavily scripted and somewhat scrappy follow up to last year's sublime Resi 2 remake. The series' trademark slow-burn tension and gentle puzzling are replaced here by all-out action that feels far too safe and linear – for the most part, a series of tightly confined corridors bookended by sloppy boss battles and chase sequences which tend to wrestle control away from the player in an effort to add unnecessary cinematic flair. There are a handful of highlights; graphically, it's the best the series has ever looked and both Jill and Carlos are decent re-imaginings of the original characters but, overall, this one struggles to reach anywhere near the heights of its predecessor. Combat feels disappointing for the most part, the Nemesis is underutilised and the whole thing is over far too quickly, with very little in the way of replay value.

    there was some stuff missing in Resident Evil 3 because i feel like it will a short game more a rush and grab. but the only thing wasthere was some stuff missing in Resident Evil 3 because i feel like it will a short game more a rush and grab. but the only thing was different is that it was so short..
    The Game has to be longer like it did with Resident Evil 2 remake and same as the original 1999 ps1 version..
    but there no stuff in there
    No Clock tower
    no raccoon park
    no Cemetery
    no Dead Factory because the Umbrella Lab NEST 2 is in the Dead Factory with the Railgun instead of the Raccoon City Memorial Hospital because in the original Carlos went to the hospital to find Dr Nathaniel Bard for the Vaccine cure to cure Jill in the Clock tower and before the nemesis broke through.
    also No Grave Digger Boss that's missing
    weapons like Freeze rounds for Explosive C 2x and those Explosive B and C would combine as Mine Rounds those are missing. instead we got Explosive rounds, Flame rounds, Acid rounds and Mine rounds.
    Enemies too as well like the Spiders and Crows are missing the Brain suckers were missing even those Blue herbs would stop the poison from happening in your body. but at least we had the good enemies back like Zombies, Zombie dogs (Cerberus), Lickers, Drain Deimos, even the Hunters like Hunter Beta and Hunter Gamma but they must of replace the crows and spiders with these new enemies like Pald heads and Ne-A parasite that controls Zombies, even Brain suckers would be perfect in the Dead factory level in Nest 2.
    also the second form of nemesis is missing too because his second form he had Tentacles came out of his body and hand before he turn into a beast form but the last form i think he was a Parasitic Metamorphosis Bug like Insect combine with a parasite and the Tryant.
    also the Extra mode would be Mercenaries that would be awesome to play like Carlos, Mikhail viktor, Nikoial, and Tyrell to play in the Mercenaries mode... also the ending they should put Berry Burton in the game as well and the cut scene where Raccoon City explodes from a Missile strike. I just wish Capcom would go back and fix the whole game by putting all the stuff in there. and make it better than just fast and go type..

This is an average shooter and an awful Resi evil game. The original game was short but despite that Capcom have decided to cut a bunch of content and release a very short game with no puzzles, no horror and nothing to do after beating the 4-6 hour campaign. Lazy, overpriced cash grab. Expand
