Resident Evil 3 Remake Review

My name is Krishnavamshi Kesani. I am from India. I am a student currently persuing my B. Tech in SRM Institute Of Science And Technology.

The first horror video game I ever played was Resident Evil 2 Remake. I even played the original Resident Evil 2 after the remake. Then, after I got to know that Resident Evil 3 is released, I started playing it. I started playing it not because it is the sequel of Resident Evil 2 Remake but the game's developer Capcom has consistently packed the game with the tense huge monster moments in Raccoon City. I had a lot of fun in the 8 hours gameplay of the game. Capcom managed to excellently modify the original Resident Evil 3 into this remake.


Resident Evil 3 Remake Game For PS4

Resident Evil 3 takes place just after the events in Resident Evil 2, but with different characters. The protagonist of the game, Jill Valentine is an endearingly practical girl who is called by the roguish Umbrella corporation member, Carlos Oliviera to help him in a mission to save the remaining people who are still alive in the Raccoon City which is now spawned by the T-virus outbreak. Nothing goes according to plan and Jill finds herself in the Zombie studded playground. She has to fight an invulnerable monster called the Nemesis. When I first encountered Nemesis in the game, my pulse rose.

First Encounter of Nemesis In RE 3 Remake


Resident Evil 3 Remake is very fortunate in its storytelling, the heroes in the game are selfless and charming and the villains in the game are creepily villainous. We never get bored in its gameplay. Working with the RE engine, Capcom has done an incredible in small details, like the in-universe advertising to the things left by people in a hurry in previous Resident Evil games to the Resident Evil 2 easter eggs. There are also some notes or Journals left by previous RE characters that give us the background context of a dead guy or reveal a code to open a safe, etc. I loved this kind of connection between the game's characters relying on the previous RE game's character's notes or Journals.

Every room in the game has some useful items and secrets like guns, ammo, notes, health requirements, etc. Like in the previous Resident Evil games, we will have less amount of ammo at the beginning. We will have to go to different rooms and loot what we want. And also there is only a limited space to occupy things in your bag. So we will have to choose, which item we should keep in our bag and which item should be stored which is a very difficult task to choose items. We have to solve puzzles with the clues you have gathered in order to go to the next room or the next area. These tasks are never so easy thanks to the elegant, interlocking level of the design that makes backtracking very easy.

One of The Safe Codes In RE 3 Remake


Jill Valentine's character in the game is very nimbler on her feet which makes the game more action-oriented feel than the previous RE games. Jill has a quick step that allows her to sidestep when a Zombie or a rocket launcher from Nemesis suddenly attacks her. Running cannot save us from Nemesis, who stalks us through the streets of Raccoon City and always feels a step ahead of us. At first, Jill is given a single handgun but as she unlocks new areas she unlocks the classic Resident Evil weapons like the shotgun, Rocket launcher, etc. In the end, Jill has to face off with the game's invulnerable villain, Nemesis. Nemesis is a very powerful villain in the game. He can move very fast with a Rocket launcher in his hands that makes him look like a giant, horribly disfigured cat.

Overall, Resident Evil 3 remake game has done an amazing job than the original game. The boss fight with the Nemesis gives you goosebumps for over fifteen minutes. The visual effects in the game are outstanding. Capcom managed to give the high expectations of the Resident Evil fans.

Yeah, the game is shorter than and of course better than RE2 remake.

I heard it was really short in comparison to RE2, How did you feel about the length of the game? Its good to hear you like it, I'm still on the outskirts on whether I want to purchase it or not. I was a big fan of RE2 remake though as well as RE 7 Biohazard.

If you are afraid to play horror games then I suggest seeing the wiki guide of the game and play it, so that you will know what happens next. You should see my Resident Evil 2 Review. It was the first horror game I ever played with a wiki guide beside me. I was also afraid before playing it but the wiki guide helped me a lot finishing the game. Hope you will also finish RE 2

Poppy from Enoshima, Japan on May 07, 2020:

I absolutely love video games, but I struggle to complete horror simply because they're too scary. I bought Resident Evil 2 Remake but I can't complete it because Mr. X is just too terrifying! I won't be buying RE:3 for that reason, but I'm glad you enjoyed it. Maybe I'll catch a Let's Play of it. I did complete Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, which I recommend if you enjoy the series. Great review!
