Resident Evil 3 is great game but not as good as Resident Evil 2 remake. To be fair, this is how I felt about the original Resident Evil 3 as well.

Even with some original content missing, mainly the few choices branching the story that would help with much needed replayability, Resident Evil 3 Remake still does capture some of the original game’s magic. For some this smaller amount of content can be offset by asymetric multiplayer Resistance. In no way it reaches heights of last year's Resident Evil 2 Remaster.

Resident Evil 3 Remake is incredibly ambitious but some of the creative decisions made for this Remake do make this one feel like a slight step back from its predecessor. Regardless, it is a great Resident Evil game on its own and should satisfy the thirst of fans who wanted to see the series go back to action.

Doesn't worth its high price, but check it out when it's on sale if you want a trip down memory lane.

In the trying time of Covid-19, it might be a little on the nose to play a video game in which a devastating contagion that has laid waste to a city community.

If you're looking for the authentic Resident Evil experience, this is definitely not it. But if you have a Resident Evil itch that you just need to scratch, this could provide lots of hours of entertainment for you, even without the Resident Evil Resistance standalone experience. But at the end of the day, I'd rather just play the excellent Resident Evil 2 Remake, or even the original Resident Evil 3 on my old PS2 instead.

Resident Evil 3 is a historically important game and its story is interesting. Had it come before Resident Evil 2, perhaps I would have been fonder of it. But as is, it feels like it doesn’t do as much or go as far as its predecessor, an issue exacerbated by the removal of some of its challenging and unique elements. It is worth playing, but people should enter with tempered expectations.

Don’t let the lack of content dissuade you from returning to Raccoon City. Resident Evil 3 does so much right when it comes to remaking a classic work of horror.

2020’s Resident Evil 3 is an action-packed spectacle that looks and feels great, but it can’t cover up the contrived nature of the encounters with Nemesis. The absence of some of the locations and plot beats of the original only shortens a narrative that’s already criminal in its brevity.
