4.0 out of 5 stars This is the one with all the guns!
Resident Evil is a series that has evolved slowly, if at all. Do not expect this to be like the eye caressing visuals of the Resident Evil re-make or Resi. Zero, it is a straight port from the ancient PSone. (i.e. the visuals aren't up to much) You have been warned!
Resi. 3 is perhaps the only game in the series that has tried to move the the game on slightly. It is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Take the PS version, change a voice, you have this game.....
Some might consider this the best out of the Resident Evil series (I don't -- RE2 is better) but as a game alone, it's pretty good. But as a port (and that's all it is) to the GCN, it's a little... underwhelming? Anyone who has played previous versions will instantly feel at home ("chunky" controls, pre-rendered backgrounds, etc.). The story ties in with RE1 and RE2, but...

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the one with all the guns!, 29 May 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (GameCube) (Video Game)
Resident Evil is a series that has evolved slowly, if at all. Do not expect this to be like the eye caressing visuals of the Resident Evil re-make or Resi. Zero, it is a straight port from the ancient PSone. (i.e. the visuals aren't up to much) You have been warned!
Resi. 3 is perhaps the only game in the series that has tried to move the the game on slightly. It is more action packed than the others, and it relies a lot more on panic than dreading what is round the next corner. For example, the Nemesis can't be killed and has a nasty habit of chasing you through doors/windows/allys with a rocket launcher! HELP! Another new addition is the gun powder. This is invaluble as it allows you to make your own ammo!
The best part of the game though is the 'live' decisions you have to make which determines your path through the game, you have to see it to belive it, just don't choose to 'fight the monster'!!!!!
The controls have also been tweeked. This has the quick turn and also a very handy dodge ability to miss or wriggle free of Zombies grasp.
Ultimatley, Resi. 3 is a gripping, heart pumping experience not to be missed. Just don't expect another Resident Evil Zero or the Origional re-make.
So, if you like Resident Evil games, you must get this piece of Nostalgia.
Buy it, buy it now! You know you want it!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Starz" Creepy goings on in Raccoon City, 18 Jun 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (GameCube) (Video Game)
This is my first "traditional" Resident Evil game after completing Resident evil 4 on my PS2, I thought the pre-rendered backgrounds and different controls would put me off a bit, but this game is fantastic.

Of course for Resident Evil fands who have experience of the series, they would have no problem with controls and know exactly what to expect from the series, but I didn't have a clue, and that just made it better...

The Pre-rendered backgrounds provide and excellent atmosphere for a game originally released for PS1, if it came in full 3D the experience wouldn't have been the same with dodgy polygons. Whilst charatcers are fairly simple looking, the enemies still look freaky and just great, minus the detail that comes with the advanced technology of the 6th Gen systems.

The game controls are perfect one you get used to them, and both the eerie sounds of the different locations and the puzzles and enemies you encounter are well thought up and provide an excellent gaming experience.

The main story of the game is Jill Valentine trying to escape from Raccoon City before it's destruction (which she is unaware of throughout most of the game) and trying to survive the zombies and getting hunted down by The Nemesis, that messed up dude you can see on the box art. His presence is genuinely terrifying, as you'll just be walking along and he'll stroll through the door, forcing you to make a quick in-game decision on what to do, which affects the overall ending. This idea of a choice is really good and it adds an extra level of interactiveness into this survival game. If you're not given a choice, you'll be legging it as fast as you can as he catches up to you really fast with a big rocket launcher. Scary times.

Now obviously the game is only scary the first time you play it, some would argue it's not even scary, but it does make you jump, which is great! If there are people of a nervous disposition, wondering whether this game is worth it, it is, it's got gore and some creepy scenes, but nothing that'll keep you up all night with the light on.

Overall it's a fantastic game, but it loses a star because of the fact it's a direct port of the PS1 game, and not remade like the original, also the game is quite short, and will take you 10 hours at the most to play through.

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The nemesis returns, 23 Mar 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (GameCube) (Video Game)
Resident evil 3 was origianally released in november 1997 and was a brilliant game. Jill was brought back from resi 1 and the story was that jill had to escape from the t-virus infected raccoon city. When it was released on gamecube in 2003, many people thought it would be like the gamecube version of resi 1 with amazing graphics and new parts. However, this like resi 2 on the cube has the same graphics (except for the arms and legs which have been smoothed out) as the original. But that dosn't matter. The nemesis is the best boss ever and meets you around fourteen times depending how you play the game. That is also another good feature. Just like the original at certain parts you can choose what to do next. it makes the game evn more fun. As well as this though, nicholai is in it and he is really cool, not as good as wesker though. Anyway, nemesis is bloody awesome and at parts is equipped with a rocket launcher. Half way through he loses this weapon and uses tentacles which is probably harder because you find yourself being slammed into the ground a lot and jill is proper slow at getting back up. The storyline is good and the game itself is probably better than resi 2. Even though in this game, the police station is in it too. There are some amazing weapons too such as handguns, assault rifles, grenade launchers, mine launchers, shotguns and the legendary magnum. There is also a bonus minigame which can help you earn even greater weapons such as a gatling gun. The city itself is full of monsters includin zombies, brain suckers, drain demos and the hunter. There are many locations and it is quite confusing in parts. Anyway this is a brilliant game no matter what anybody else says so GET IT NOW!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars worth every penny, 7 May 2007

Ported from the ps1 with slightly improved graphics nemesis arrives on the game cube.
Picking up after the events of resi 1 S.T.A.R.S member Jill valentine finds the city overrun with zombies as she attempts to escape with the help of mercenaries only to be hounded by the unstoppable monster nemesis.
Yes it's the same game you played nearly a decade ago & as a result can feel slightly dated but deadly bosses & intense live action scenes, complete with bonus mercenaries mode make this an essential game to own. The last truly great resi until 4 its worthy every penny you pay for it & then some.

This review is from: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (GameCube) (Video Game)
In 1999 Resident Evil 3 Nemesis was released, shwoing a true enemy that Umbrella used to kill off the S.T.A.R. Team, in 2003 they re-released it onto the Gamecube, hoping for better graphics due to the cover I went ahead and buyed it but what I saw was the same old ps1 graphics but what I also saw was a perfect Resident Evil 2 storyline. This may not be as good as Resident Evil 4 and 1 and never will be but this had events before Resident Evil 2 and after Resident Evil 2 where the city has been infected and Jill Valentine needs to escape, in a sexy blue dress she teams up with Umbrella's army member Carlos who is all for the ladie. In certain parts it does get frightning cause you have two options, escape or fight the Nemesis and you have to kill him 3 times, each time he gets worst, he develops from what we know as the G-Virus which you hear about in Resident Evil 0 andin the end you hear the famous line where the Nemesis is just a slug. Jill with her magnum shouts "stars! Are give you stars!" and kills the Nemesis and we see a scene were Racoon City goes under nuclear explosion, all in all it has very good storyline, a very worthy oppenent and some not very trustworthy allies, apart from graphics at times I give this 5 stars, worthit to get.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of the PSOne Resident Evil games…, 8 Mar 2004
By 
Tom Robinson (Norwich, Norfolk, England) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (GameCube) (Video Game)
Most people would assume that the number 3 comes after 2, but in the case of ‘Resident Evil 3: Nemesis’, it actually acts as a prequel to ‘Resident Evil 2’. You play as Jill Valentine and she has to escape a swarm of zombies that infest Racoon City, and if that wasn’t bad enough, a genetically engineered abomination called Nemesis is after her too. Though this game has been released for players who want to catch up with the entire Resident Evil saga, there is still plenty to enjoy.
The classic gameplay and control style make a return of course but there is an increased amount of exterior zombie hunting to do. The streets of the city are where many of the puzzles of the tried and tested formula make an appearance, and they work well too. But ‘Resident Evil 3: Nemesis’ manages to keep its appeal after all these years because of the introduction of the deadly Nemesis. This is simply a bad-ass boss who makes repetitive appearances, sometimes by smashing through walls (yes, I do mean those huge brick or concrete things that usually can’t be penetrated). If you presumed that this old Resident Evil game wouldn’t scare you, then you’ll be in for a fair shock.
But for all the good ideas in this game, there is one that really lets the game down. You can collect different ammo components that are scattered about the place, allowing you to combine and create alternative types of firepower to use against your foes. This would be an excellent idea if your storage space weren’t so limited, as it takes up too much in your precious inventory. It is also repetitive and ultimately too much of a pain to become enjoyable, so there is little wonder why it hasn’t been re-used since.
Nevertheless, it plays just as good as any recent Resident Evil title and the Nemesis is simply brilliant. It is also worth getting because it fills in much of the Racoon City section of the Resident Evil storyline for the new generation. But if you’re picky with your games and want absolute perfection, then you may want to avoid this one. Like in ‘Resident Evil 2’ the visuals haven’t been improved and it doesn’t do GameCube’s graphical capabilities any justice. It doesn’t carry any outstanding revolutionary features either, unlike ‘Resident Evil’ or ‘Resident Evil Zero’.
It does look naff compared to the more recent titles and it is expensive for what it is, but for the obsessed Resi Evil completist it is essential, and cracking adventure for anyone else. Overall, 3.5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, 25 Sep 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (GameCube) (Video Game)
Since the mansion incident we've had Resident Evil 2, but what happened to Jill Valentine, well you're about to find out. Resident Evil 3 brings back Jill Valentine as she tries to escape the horrorific montsrosity that Raccoon City has turned into. Undead monsters roam the streets trying to thwart Jill in her quest.

There's monsters old and new here, plenty of action, plenty of puzzles to solve, great graphics and some creepy music added in the mix too. I enjoy this game mainly because Jill is, in my opinion, the best Resident Evil character. Don't let the fact that this game is a port put you off, it is fantastic, and I can safely say I much prefer the gamecube controls anyway. This is must in any resident evil fans collection, I'd recommend it to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Take the PS version, change a voice, you have this game....., 15 May 2003
This review is from: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (GameCube) (Video Game)
Some might consider this the best out of the Resident Evil series (I don't -- RE2 is better) but as a game alone, it's pretty good. But as a port (and that's all it is) to the GCN, it's a little... underwhelming? Anyone who has played previous versions will instantly feel at home ("chunky" controls, pre-rendered backgrounds, etc.). The story ties in with RE1 and RE2, but progresses past RE2. Anyony who hasn't played these games will be lost in the plot.
Now I could go on about how the game is just a port, how this makes the game look like a good 32-bit game and how disappointing that was, but all you need to know is here:
If you already have a version of this game; you don't need this one.
If you have a Dreamcast; get that version instead.
If you're neither, then the game is definitely worth getting, especially if you have the previous games aswell.

This is one of the classic Resident Evil games and the whole experience is made better for being on the GameCube with its comfortable controller and tidy little form - not to mention it looks graphically much more pleasing on the GameCube than it does on any other console!

If you're a fan of the franchise then do yourself a favour, buy this game!
