As Jill Valentine, you must escape from a city filled with zombies, mutants and a new nemesis. Millions of the PlayStation version have been sold and now all the horrifying action is available for the PC. Use background objects for defence and the dodge button to avoid enemy's attacks altogether. "Live Selection" allows you to make decisions which effect the story's outcome. Includes a bonus Microsoft desktop theme.
The third instalment 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 HonSee all Product Description

Resident Evil 3 was released on the PSone in September 1999 in Japan before being released in the UK in February 2000. The game's timeline is a little complex with the first half taking place a few hours before the events of Resident Evil 2, and the second half taking place a couple of days afterwards. The T-virus has spread all over Raccoon City and turned a vast majority of its civilians into zombies. The police, despite being locked and loaded, are outmanned and overpowered. In fact the situation is so desperate that Umbrella -the corporation that started this whole mess- have sent in armed soldiers to apparently save any people who have not been infected by the virus.
You play as Jill Valentine, the heroine of the first Resident Evil. Upon realizing that there's no hope left for Raccoon City, Jill grabs a handgun and hopes to make her "last escape" from this horrible nightmare...Read more ›
The graphics are amazing and their use is excellent. While this was one of the last of the huge PSone releases (next to Final Fantasy IX) it in no way makes it anything less than the newer incarnations of the series on the next-gen consoles such as the PS2, Dreamcast and even the GameCube.
Resident Evil 3 is being ported to the Nintendo GameCube some time in 2002/2003 which is great news, this is a game that is visually beautiful. The soundtrack is excellent and the extras in the game keep you playing it for months.
There are Epilogue Files to see if you're a fan of the series (meaning you HAVE to complete the game a numerous number of times) - but don't worry, the makers have thought VERY hard about not making this game boring at all.
The interactive narrative branches are amazing, letting you choose your fate at certain points in the game. This game has everything that "Silent Hill" should have had - action, a working plot and above all, acting that ISN'T completly terrible.
It is a genuinly frightening game which (as someone else wrote here) does feature a constant sense of unease. You won't be satisfied until you KNOW "The Nemesis" won't be lurking around another corner waiting to scare the crap out of you. You'll be aching to blow it's brains out by the end of the game.
If you have a Playstation, or have bought as PSone, or even if you want a cheap thrill for your PS2, buy this now.
But don't forget, it's nearly over two years old, so it's not what it used to be, but it's still a damn fine game.
The game looks beautiful, with the 3D environment having much more visual clarity than the earlier 2, and the characters looking as good as ever.
The gameplay has gathered depth here too, with much more interaction with environment and greater possibilites for weapons and ammunition.
As expected there's a whole array of flesch eating zombies and skinless dogs ready to chew away at your jugular given the first chance. On the minus side it pretty much stops there in the way of bad guys.
Of course we can't finish this review without a mention of the Nemesis. It fullfills everything you'd expect and pretty much makes the game. At first you may think it's overly difficult to incapacitate him, but once you get the hang of it knocking him out becomes simple enough - for a while anyway!
Perhaps the best thing about Resident Evil 3 is that you never know what's going to happen next. The game has an infinite number of surprizes and being able to choose what descisions to make in the game makes it impossible to guess.
And perhaps the worst thing is the game can be extremely difficult in places, which in turn also adds depth to the game - you never know what's around the corner.
I only just bought this game today and I'm already pleased with the results, no regrets with the £10 spendeture here, well worth its money.
