The long-awaited game, Resident Evil 3 Remake, finally released on April 3rd, 2020. But, is this game can surpass its predecessor? Or even the Resident Evil 2 Remake that came out last year? Let’s find out in this Resident Evil 3 Remake review.
As we all may know, last year in 2019, Capcom also release Resident Evil 2 Remake that became a huge success and nominated as Game of The Year by The Game Awards.
I know that these two are two different games with two different sets and characters. Even when the original game came out in PS1, there are two types of fans that either like RE 2 and dislike RE 3 or vice versa.
But since both RE3 Remake and RE2 remake made by the same game engine, why don’t we compare these two while reviewing Resident Evil 3 Remake.
Resident Evil 3 Remake Graphics
Talk about graphics, of course, this game has way better model and graphics compared to the original titles. This game has about 20 years gap between the original titles. And Resident Evil 3 Remake made by RE Engine, the same game engine that made RE2 Remake.
But now the question is, how does RE3 Remake graphic if we compare to Resident Evil 2 Remake? I can say that there are no major changes between the two games. Even though RE3 Remake came out one year after RE2.
The slight changes we can notice in Resident Evil 3 Remake is how they made the city. Because RE2 Remake more focused inside the police department only, in other hands RE3 Remake also has a lot of outdoor gameplay.
Just like the graphics aspect, there are no major changes either in the RE3 Remake gameplay. You’ll steal dealing with kinda same zombies, using weapons, and other stuff.
But what I notice is this game has even more fast-paced than RE2 Remake. You’ll need to catch up both for the adapting gameplay system and the story. Other than that, now you only can use limited space of inventory, which kinda brings back the old-school feeling to it.
RE3 Remake also brings back the map feature, now you can look for treasure or item from your map. Even though this will save your time when treasure hunting, RE3 Remake has fewer puzzles and treasure to collect. This becomes a more action-packed game than a puzzle and survival game.
Resident Evil 3 Remake Story
As for the story and plot, there are no major changes from the original titles. But one thing kinda made me disappointed is Nemesis has less screen time compared to Mr.X in Resident Evil 2. So you can’t really feel the same tension when being chased by Mr.X.
Other than that, everything still quite the same. You can play both as Carlos Oliviera or Jill Valentine. And the single-player campaign has about 20 to 30 hours gameplay with no New Game +.
Alright, I think that is all for Resident Evil 3 Remake review. Is this game worth to play? To be honest it’s kinda hard to decide as well. After playing the RE2 Remake, I kinda feel RE3 Remake just like playing Assassin Creed Odyssey after playing Assassin Creed Origins. But if you’re die-hard RE fans, then this game definitely worth your try.
