Resident Evil 3 is a comprehensive remake of the cult survival horror Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, released in 1999 on PlayStation (and in the following years successively made available to owners of other platforms). The development and release of this production is supported by the Japanese company Capcom, which is responsible for the brand.

Plot

The action of Resident Evil 3 runs parallel to the events taking place in Resident Evil 2, and therefore several months after the end of the first part of the series. The protagonist is Jill Valentine, a former officer of S.T.A.R.S.'s elite squad. She is in the midst of a zombie apocalypse caused in Raccoon City by a G virus that snuck out of the laboratories of Umbrella's sinister corporation, infecting almost all of its inhabitants. The girl must be on guard, because apart from hordes of living corpses, her members of the military unit Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service, officially sent to rescue civilians, are on their heels. It is also followed by a terrifying mutant called Nemesis, a new version of the Bio Organic Weapon, in the second part of the series represented by the powerful Tyrant. Fortunately, Jill is not doomed to a lonely crossing and can count on the help of Carlos Oliveira's mercenary, who is the second playable character in the title.

Mechanics

Similarly to the remake of the second part of the cycle, in Resident Evil 3 we observe the action from the third person perspective (TPP), from the camera located over the right shoulder of the character. During the game we travel through the city captured by zombies and realize the next mission objectives, along the way collecting valuable supplies and notes that are a source of information about the situation in the city, as well as eliminating the hosts of enemies. In addition, environmental puzzles await a solution.

The authors give us not only white weapons, but also firearms (guns and shotguns are in our hands). As ammunition is a scarce commodity here, it is worthwhile to exercise restraint in the use of the latter - sometimes it is better to simply escape than to dispose of stocks of bullets. This tactic works best when confronted with Nemesis following our footsteps. A mutant repeating the word "Staaaaaars" like a mantra, makes an impression of indestructible. Additionally, he seems to be more intelligent than his predecessor - he can not only appear out of nowhere (most often in the least expected moments), but also use weapons (and his favorite "toy" is a rocket launcher).

Game modes

For a single player focused campaign Resident Evil 3 is accompanied by a multiplayer production entitled Resident Evil: Resistance. While four players take on the role of survivors trying to escape from Umbrella Corporation's lab, the fifth one, as the Mastermind, has the task at all costs to prevent them from doing so.

Technical aspects

As a fully fledged remake, Resident Evil 3 boasts not only refreshed mechanics, but also a completely new graphic design. The authors used photogrammetry technology, thanks to which the visual sphere of this production presents a high level of quality. Attention is drawn to both the very detailed surroundings and the detailed models of the characters and opponents. The soundtrack was also developed from scratch.
