Resident Evil 3 is a comprehensive remake of the iconic 1999 survival horror game Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, released on PlayStation (and successively released on other platforms in the following years). The development and publishing of the game was taken care of by the Japanese company Capcom, the owner of the franchise.

Plot

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

Mechanics

Similarly to the remake of the second part, in Resident Evil 3 we observe the action from TPP, from the camera located over the right shoulder of the character. During the game we travel through the zombie-infested city and complete subsequnet mission objectives while collecting valuable supplies and notes that are a source of information about the situation in the city, as well as eliminating hosts of enemies. In addition, the game has us solve environmental puzzles.

The devs prepared melee weapons and firearms (guns and shotguns) for us to use. 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 use up our stocks of bullets. This tactic works best when confronted with Nemesis. The mutant repeats the word "Staaaaaars" like a mantra and seems to be indestructible. Additionally, he seems to be more intelligent than his predecessor - he can not only appear out of nowhere (most often in least expected moments), but also use weapons (and his favorite "toy" is a rocket launcher).

Game modes

In a ddition to a single-player campaign, Resident Evil 3 is accompanied by a multiplayer game titled Resident Evil: Resistance. A group of 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 to prevent them from doing so at all costs.

Technical aspects

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