If you want to hear DualShockers’ thoughts on Resident Evil 3, check out our review discussion where we talk about Nemesis, Gameplay, and Martin Sandwich.
You might have to wait a few more days to explore the grimy, zombie-filled streets of Raccoon City yourself, but, fortunately for you, a few of DualShockers‘ staff has braved the horrors of Resident Evil 3 and lived to tell about it.
Managing Editor Logan Moore, Video Manager Mario Rivera, and I, Senior Staff Writer Ricky Frech, got together and went over our thoughts on Capcom’s latest in a half-hour long review discussion. Put it in your eyeholes below:
Resident Evil 3 takes what Capcom did with 2019’s Resident Evil 2 remake and turns the action up a few notches. For some, Jill’s improved moveset over her predecessors is going to be exactly what the doctor ordered. Others might pine for the slower but more tense experience that RE2 gave you. You’ll have to watch the video to see which camp each of us falls into.
The big draw of RE3, of course, is Nemesis. After how harrowing each encounter felt against Mr. X in RE2, the superpowered bioweapon had some big shoes to fill. While the character design is astounding and he certainly has his moments, Nemesis definitely feels like the weaker of Umbrella Corps’ big baddies.
And, of course, the discussion wouldn’t be complete without a mention of Resident Evil Resistance, the new multiplayer component of this game. At the time of recording we hadn’t had a ton of time to play it, but the new asymmetrical multiplayer mode has potential, even if it’s not quite there yet.
Resident Evil 3 is out on April 3 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. We’re going to have more coverage than you could ask for over the course of this week. So keep your eyes on DualShockers for all your Resident Evil 3 needs.
