Pomimo kilku niedociągnięć, Resident Evil 3 jest jedną z lepszych gier w jakie kiedykolwiek grałem. Doskonała grafika, trzymająca w napięciu muzyka, niesamowity klimat wszystko to niewątpliwie wpływa na poziom rozgrywki. Polecam każdemu!

So rarely do we see games of this genre come out with one revolutionary idea, yet this game brings to the table a whole bunch of them. Everything is made to shape an atmosphere of utmost vagueness and dread, subsequently sucking the player into this world of moving zombies and creepy beasts with ease. Its impressive sound tracks and awe-inspiring graphics come to play as effectively too. And if we put all of RE’s elements as a whole, they form not only a great game by all standards, but an ideal one for all action games to look up to as well.

Resident Evil 3 hab’ ich schon auf der Playstation geliebt. Jetzt darf ich die Zombiejagd auch auf dem Medium spielen, das mir um einiges näher ist. Kaum ein Spiel schafft es, mir solche Angst einzujagen, mich aber für Stunden an den Rechner zu fesseln. Wenn es hart auf hart kommt, flüchte ich mich schon mal ins Inventar, um durchzuatmen und meinen rasenden Puls zu normalisieren. Die Designer haben den Sprung vom einen auf das andere System leider nicht fehlerfrei bestanden. Die Analogsteuerung ist nichts für den PC. Da sitzen Entwickler über Jahre an dem Spiel und schaffen es nicht, ein paar Wochen in eine perfekte Anpassung zu investieren! Trotz dieses Mankos kann ich Resident Evil 3 jedem Gruselfreund empfehlen.

So where Capcom failed with Dino Crisis, Nemesis succeeds. If you've played Resident Evil 2 you're not really getting anything new but it's still on a parallel with it in terms of quality. Anyone who wants to see how the story continues in the saga won't be too disappointed. OK, the puzzles are simplistic, the controls are frustrating and the acting's just passable, but that classic zombie movie atmosphere makes it an enjoyable experience to play through at least once.

Resident Evil 3 is een opvallend degelijke Playstation conversie en het beste spel uit de reeks.

Ondanks enkele tekortkomingen is deze aflevering nogmaals een bewijs van de leefbaarheid die het survival horrorgenre ook buiten de consoles bezit.

Ultimately, Resident Evil 3 is a console game, and should be kept as such. If there isn't another platform in your house, it's definitely a fun game and worth a few hours of your time. But Capcom would do well to bring out a PC-only Resident Evil title that caters to what the PC does best -- first person blastin'!

Resident Evil 3 gives the die-hard gamer plenty of zombies to shoot at, as well as other mutations, several of which are definite bosses. Toss in confused mercenaries, a double agent, and one mean, nasty, and totally obsessed boss, and you have the makings of several hours worth of great playing.

Gemischte Gefühle im Haus des Todes. Viel hat sich an Capcoms Zombiegewusel in den letzten drei Jahren nicht geändert. Savepoints statt Speicherfunktion, nervige Konsolenmenüs statt komfortabler PC-Umgebung, das Wechseln zwischen den Lokalitäten wird trotz flinker Ladegeschwindigkeiten durch Sequenzen von öffnenden Türen dargestellt... eben die alten Leiden des jungen RE. Doch selbst die gewöhnungsbedürftige Steuerung und die Schmalspurrätsel für hirntote Widergänger ändern nichts daran, dass Resident Evil: Nemesis ein echter Schocker ist. Wenn lebende Leichname aus finsteren Ecken hervorschnellen oder brüllend durch splitternde Fenster donnern, segnet manche Unterhose das Zeitliche. Ich musste jedenfalls während der Testphase von koffeinhaltigen Getränken auf warme Milch umsteigen. Meiner Nachtruhe zuliebe.

Ein Muß RE-Fans, ansonsten aber nicht unbedingt empfehlenswert! Wäre Resident Evil 3 - Nemesis technisch auf dem neusten Stand und die Story ein wenig einfallsreicher, könnte es durchaus in der Oberliga mitspielen. Ein wenig kann die spannende Atmosphäre das ansonsten recht durchschnittliche Spiel retten.

Ok, so the game sports terrible controls, odd console'ish elements and limited visuals, but we've heard this story before, haven't we? Of course we have. These problems have plagued the series since it's inauguration on the PC, but Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is still the best Resident Evil title to date for the PC. The simple reason for that is the improved gameplay, particularly the enhanced puzzle elements and the addition of Nemesis and the game-altering choice screens he brings with him. Well, that and the fact I'm a sucker for mindless horror entities. If you enjoyed the previous two titles in the series and you have no problem overlooking the rough edges, Resident Evil 3 will probably satisfy your hunger for more zombie antics.

Sur le plan technique, le plus souvent la dernière roue du carosse pour Capcom dans ses conversions de la PSX vers le PC, des efforts ont été faits mais on est encore loin du compte. Efforts dans la personnalisation des touches par exemple et dans la gestion des performances du PC comme de monter la résolution à plus de 1024 ou même d'utiliser le 32 bits. Cependant, on sent le moteur bien faiblard et à peine transcrit pour nos ordinateurs. Les polices et certains décors sont vraiment baveux, tout comme certains effets comme les flammes ou les fumées. Certaines cartes poseront sûrement d'ailleurs des incompatibilités avec le moteur et Capcom, comme toujours a fait du travail vite fait mal fait pour le rendre juste jouable grâce aux conversions DirectX.

Resident Evil 3 isn't the best place to start for a newcomer to the series. It's a zombie-killing rampage that lacks the inventive game structure that made Resident Evil 2 so good. You do get some extras with the PC version that had to be unlocked in the PlayStation version: Jill has a few different costumes, and there's a minigame called Mercenaries that gives you two minutes to run through the city killing zombies. But these extras don't do much to offset the fact that Resident Evil 3 is the most generic entry in the series so far. Fans of previous Resident Evil games will like it, but those who have yet to enter the world of survival-horror would do better to start with Resident Evil 2 or Resident Evil Code: Veronica for the Dreamcast.

"Resident Evil 3: Nemesis" è il capitolo meno brillante della saga Capcom, indipendentemente dalla conversione, che pur rimane tra le migliori viste dopo Metal Gear Solid. La qualità delle texture è buona anche se la compenetrazione dei poligoni a volte può far storcere il naso. Stesso discorso vale per i fondali in bitmap, mano fastidiosi del solito anche ad alte risoluzioni (considerando che per l'originale erano disegnati in 320x200). Ciò che non fa decollare però il gioco è la completa e totale assenza di una trama; il tutto si risolve in una serie di sparatorie spettacolari e a tratti divertenti, ma la reiterazione dello stesso elemento dopo un po' finisce con l'annoiare.

Peut-on encore faire du survival-horror après Code Veronica ? A en juger par ce Resident Evil 3, on peut fortement en douter. Graphismes à la fois laids et désués, scenario inepte et bruitages dignes d'un Atari ST, ce soft est peut-être le jeu video le plus proche d'un film de série Z jamais réalisé. Or, c'est bien en cela qu'il parvient à charmer : Resident 3 est une grosse blague bien gore, sans finesse ni esprit, et c'est un peu pour cela qu'on finit par s'y attacher.

Capcom obviously strove to create a game that would preserve the spirit and outlooks of its prequels (read - it's another damn PSX1 port). It seems that they pushed this tendency one step too far, and forgot to actually deliver anything new to the gaming scene. This game can get hold your attention, and it would probably do a far better job if it were not for the controls, which are hard to grasp, even after hours of play. The seemingly incomplete story also hinders the atmosphere. Not even after finishing Resident Evil 3: Nemesis could I spot any specific features that would make it a good game in general, or at least much better than the rest of the serial.

Resident Evil 3 is arguably the worst of this series. Poor translation from console to PC, nothing really new or engaging about the gameplay and the fact that you’d swear this was a DOS game combine to make this an awful gaming experience. If you must play it, I recommend using a control pad and squinting your eyes to even out the poor graphics. Wait six months and you’ll find this game in the $9.99 bin at your local computer store.

Jill wäre eine propere Heldin - würde sie nicht acht Minuten brauchen, um auf eine Kiste zu steigen, und weitere acht, um hinunterzuhüpfen. Die Steuerung, das Speichersystem und die hässliche Grafik entwerten in der PC-Version die Elemente, die Resident Evil 3 auf der PlayStation zu einem Erfolg gemacht haben: spannende Action in einem gruseligen Horrorspektakel.

Первым двум портированным частям Resident Evil так и не удалось выбиться в люди — и это при том, что на PC в то время наблюдался острейший дефицит жанра Survival Horror. Сейчас у нас есть Nocturne, а скоро выйдет заключительная серия трилогии Blair Witch. И на что, скажите мне на милость, надеялась Capcom, выпустив почти не отличающуюся от своих предков игру?..

Der er ligesom ikke noget nyt i RE3. Har man prøvet et af de andre i serien, vil man blive skuffet. Har man Playstationudgaven af spillet, så gå udenom RE3 til PC. Man kan godt nok køre det i højere opløsninger, men de hyppige grafikfejl og den evigt og altid forstyrrende Nemesis samt de lamme puzzles er ting, som vil være temmelig frustrerende i det lange løb. Kender du ikke RE-serien, vil du derimod få en god, skræmmende oplevelse.

Le portage de Resident Evil 3 ne s'est pas fait sans mal : les développeurs ont oublié de rajouter le support des périphériques de jeu et des cartes GeForce. Comme le jeu est déjà un peu vieux même sur console, qu'il hérite des mêmes défauts (trop court, sauvegardes ponctuelles, aller-retour incessants), et que dans le coeur des fans il a déjà été supplanté par le très beau Resident Evil : Code Veronica sur Dreamcast, on peut s'interroger sur l'intérêt de cette version PC.
