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

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

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

Another enjoyable reimagining for the Resident Evil series that nails the action but lacks depth.

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.

This is another spectacular remake for the series, and Nemesis is an imposing enemy who relentlessly chases you throughout the game.

When I first fired up Resident Evil 3, I worried that its tale of a pandemic turning cities into disease-plagued ghost towns would be more of a depressing reminder of our current reality than escapist entertainment. To wit: A live-action cinematic starts the game with doctors in hazmat suits and government officials telling of a CDC-enforced quarantine.

It takes last year’s Resident Evil 2 remake and hones it into something meaner and more intense. Embracing the chaos leads to an intense and confidently executed Resident Evil experience.
