Resident Evil 3 Remake


The Resident Evil 3 Remake launches a year later after Resident Evil 2 Remake. Back when Resident Evil 3: Nemesis launched in 1999, one year after the release of Resident Evil 2. It launched just before Playstation 2.  Resident Evil 3 remake launches not long before the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X – another satisfying parallel. 

Jill Valentine makes her return in Resident Evil 3 Remake is a story that takes place around the same time as Resident Evil 2. Nemesis, an unstoppable creature that chases Jill throughout the game as Jill attempts to escape the Raccoon City.

I think I like what Capcom did with Jill’s Character in this particular remake. Jill looks less 90’s and her sarcastic, getting irritated personality provides psychological relief. Resident Evil 3 story for Jill starts from Nemisis attacking her in her collapsing apartment and ends with the Explosion of Nemesis. Cool.

Resident Evil 3 doesn’t excites me. It’s more of a faster-paced game that can be completed in under 1 Hour and 30 Minutes if you skip all the cutscenes and dialogues. Focus is mainly on the action and lesser on puzzles or exploration. More importantly, plenty of ammo can be found throughout the game. You will never run out of ammo. Nemesis role is more like scare from the back, jump on top of you and of course, SURPRISE!

Resident Evil 3 looks more or less identical to Resident Evil 2, even after some additions like Dodge, etc. If you ask me, the games looks visually stunning, a great job by Capcom, thanks to RE Engine.

In Resident Evil 3, there are lacks of elements like branching paths and different endings based on your decision made in cutscenes. That’s unfortunate, given the fact that Resident Evil 2 Remake wasn’t a long game, either but it was replayable. In fact, you really had to play through several times in order to get the full story, with multiple protagonists, story paths, and game modes. This was not the case with Resident Evil 3, it took me less than 4 hours to complete before the credits rolled.

To be clear, Resident Evil Series has a long history of speedrunning, something Capcom encourages with many unlockable rewards. I think I have completed the game more than 6 or 7 times with good reasons to get to that ending.

Also, Resident Evil 3 has multiplayer called “Resident Evil: Resistance”, which I barely played, didn’t find it quite entertaining. But, you could always check out the 4-1 multiplayer game.

Resident Evil 3 is an entertaining, updated game right up to date. But, it feels more like the expansion of Resident Evil 2.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
