I knew that playing Resident Evil 3 Remake would not be too off the mark of what gamers experienced with Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 2 Remake.
I figured I would sit down and enjoy an immersive experience trying to escape the consequences of Umbrella Corps irresponsibility. As I was playing the game, per usual, I enjoyed Resident Evil 3 Remake. I liked the updated graphics and reimaged circumstances.
I was most impressed and shocked by the opening scene. The first person point of view gets you immersed in Jill as a character, and because it’s so dark and creepy in her apartment, and that got me in the mood to be startled.
You have to automatically assume that playing a Resident Even game is going to be graphic. Right off the bat, there is a really graphic dream sequence, so if things like that bother you, I wouldn’t advise you to play. That aside, like Resident Evil 2 Remake, being hunted down the entire game added a level of excitement to the game outside of the usual zombie jump scares.
Understand that I experienced a lot of jump scares, so the zombies did their job. However, Nemesis’ updated look, agility, and new mechanics impressed me (after I finished screaming my head off).
If you’ve played any Resident Evil game, you know the name of the game. Ration, organize, prioritize, avoid if you can, and shoot if you must. Resident Evil 3 Remake continues with that tradition.
Unless you focused on finding every collectible in the game, you could finish the game in 4 or 5 hours. If you are like me and needed a break from panting in terror, it might take you a few days.
After finishing the game, I saw some reviews that were unhappy with the game. However, I think that the game was entertaining, and it’s worth a play if you are into survival horror games. Just because it’s not ten or more hours long, does not mean its bad. Also, keep in mind that this game does take place during the same time frame as Resident Evil 2 Remake, so you can’t be too mad.
Resident Evil 4 Remake?
Now, I will say, I heard a rumor that they are redoing Resident Evil 4. Resident Evil 4 was my favorite game of the franchise. I played it more than ten times on Playstation 2, and I was a bit thrown off when I heard it was next.
I understand there is money to be made, and I hope that it’s still as in-depth and engaging as it was originally. I’d love to be able to play RE 4 Remake and experience more than just updated graphics.
