Witness the climactic events of Raccoon city in a completely reimagined Resident Evil 3. This highly demanded follow-up in the 94 million unit selling franchise comes on the heels of the award-winning Resident Evil 2, and completes the Raccoon city story Arc. Resident Evil 3 will also include the online 4VS1 asymmetric multiplayer experience Resident Evil resistance. In Resident Evil 3, S.Toa.R.S. Member Jill Valentine, One of video games' Most iconic heroines, flees a city being consumed by zombies and other horrifying creatures. Built with capcom's proprietary Re engine, Resident Evil 3 uses modernized gameplay to combine action with classic survival horror in vivid high-definition. Jill's harrowing experiences in Resident Evil 3 take place in the nightmarish hours leading up to and following the events in Resident Evil 2, shedding new light on the plight of Raccoon city's residents. Every hope of escape is cut off by another Star in the Resident Evil franchise: the towering bio organic weapon Nemesis. This brutal yet intelligent monstrosity uses an arsenal of high-powered weaponry to indiscriminately eliminate any surviving S.Toa.R.S. Members in the city - with Jill being his final target. - A fan favorite Reborn - this highly requested title modernizes a classic favorite 20 years after the original game's release. - Up close and personal - An over-the-shoulder camera and modernized control scheme update the 1999 survival horror classic, drawing players into every Blood curdling encounter and horrific scare while they navigate the ruins of raccoon city. - Experience another perspective of the once-vibrant City's nightmarish outbreak of the tvirus, a biological weapon developed by Umbrella Corporation. Jill's struggle for survival takes her from the outbreak, and overlaps with the events in Resident Evil 2. - Overcome chilling encounters in a fight for survival that ratchets up the genre-defining horror game's intensity. Nail-biting exploration complements the gripping puzzle solving that fans love. - Includes Resident Evil resistance - this online 4 vs. 1 asymmetrical multiplayer experience offers both cooperative and competitive gameplay, where players can create their own survival horror experience in the Resident Evil universe.

Both the Nemesis and Raccoon City are massively underused in this disappointing step back for the series.

With a sublimely detailed world and breakneck survival-horror gameplay, Resident Evil 3 is just as good as its 2019 predecessor. More, please!

The Resident Evil 3 remake, like the original upon which it is based, is inferior to its predecessor.

The source material already had its problems, but this disappointing remake manages to make Resident Evil 3 seem even less inspired than it did originally.
