The zombies from the original Resident Evil have returned to give gamers another taste of terror in this third installment of the popular horror survival series. The game begins with Jill Valentine, who survived the first quest, but now finds herself surrounded by flesh-eating zombies as she tries to leave Raccoon City. Once again, there is lots of bone-crunching action as Jill defends herself against this never-ending army of the undead. Later in the game, players will assume the role of Carlos Oliveira, a Brazilian mercenary who will race against the clock to aid Jill in the morbid madness.
This game boasts tougher zombies and a few new moves to help you survive. At many points in the game, you will be chased relentlessly by the unstoppable Nemesis. This larger-than-life enemy appears to be impossible to destroy, which essentially means that you will have to outrun and evade it to survive. Nemesis may be slowed momentarily by a few bullets, but this creepy creature just keeps on coming.
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis appears to have all the elements in place to become yet another classic. The success of the original game and its sequel has already spawned numerous imitations in the horror survival game genre. However, few games have been able to successfully replicate the spooky sounds and tension-building storyline of the original. It is also worth noting that this zombie-filled game does contain blood and gore that parents may feel is inappropriate for younger children.
The third installment of the series that redefined the survival horror video game genre, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is the best Resident Evil yet. As Jill Valentine, one of the original game's survivors, players must fight for their lives while fleeing a city overrun by hordes of zombies and other hideous creatures mutated by a sinister corporation's biotechnological virus. To make thing worse, a near-invincible monstrosity known as the Nemesis stalks Jill throughout the game, which raises the series' suspense level to an all-new high.
In addition to the constant threat of the Nemesis, Resident Evil 3 features other gameplay elements new to the series: players can now dodge attacks, perform quick 180-degree turns, and create ammunition by mixing gunpowder types. Also, the "Live Selection" feature forces players to make decisions that affect the story's direction.
While none of these additions are particularly groundbreaking, Resident Evil 3 keeps the player in suspense and the action even more intense than in its predecessors, proving that more of same can be a good--make that very, very good--thing in a sequel. --Joe Hon
