Super Jill vs Nemesis

RE3: Nemesis is...a technical follow up to 2. I say this because in RE timeline terms, both 2 and 3 take place at the same time. Reference other sites for further info. Anyway, you control Jill from RE1/REmake. The glaring difference between 2 and 3 immediately: bigger environment. This one takes place in the streets of Raccoon City, but you will still venture into buildings. The zombies we all love are still there, but now everything you fought in 1 and 2 (with the exception of G - Birkin, G - babies, G - Adult from 2) is thrown into the mix.

You're probably wondering why I called Jill "Super Jill": this is because Capcom gave Jill new abilities and features to assist her in her survival. The most useful is the DODGE ability. Yes, you can now dodge enemies and preserve your ever - so important health (you could still just run around them). Weapon usage can be exploited when dodging, you'll see. You won't be a master at first, but you get it eventually. A helpful feature added is the Reloading Tool, which creates ammo for you.

Quick story layout: Umbrella "somehow" lets the T - Virus break out, making everyone in the town zombies. They send in their private army, who are eliminated except for a few. Jill has to escape the city, which means overcoming impossible odds.

Gameplay: Even with the dodge ability, the game is still RE. Ammo is still precious, so use it wisely. But not every room is safe, because the antagonist Nemesis (the star of the game, also a Tyrant) is hot on your tail. Oh, and he will chase after you even if you go into a different room.

Graphics: It's a PS1 port, don't have high expectations.

Replay value: Medium to high, to try and beat the game quicker than you did the last time.

this was the first resident evil game. it was very sucky to begin with but i eventually got better. the puzzles are a load of dog leavings but getting to beat the living daylights out of zombies and dogs were cool i love the idea of a freaking boss turning up everywhere. i had to go on youtube to help myself.(im just 11 so dont post anything STUPID)
i was stuck everywhere. until i learned about the herbs i would use healing spray every twenty minutes.i thought they were for design.
i was shocked to notice that every time it gets to a time stop it can change the story.%#!$ing awesome!!!!.this game is a must have for run n gun lovers also me. OH THE JOY OF KILLING ZOMBIES DOGS AND LAVISTADORS SPIDERS AND ALL THAT POOPOO

Resident Evil 3 is one of the best games in the series. You play as Jill Valentine trying to escape Raccoon City. As you go through the game, you find out even more about the sinister Umbrella Corporations plan and fight unimaginable monsters. Throughout the game, you are constantly pursued by a monster known as Nemesis who is constantly trying to destroy you and the rest of the S.T.A.R.S. members. There are more puzzles to figure out and more zombies to fight and the graphics were a little better this time. The game is challenging, but fun to play. For future players, this is a great 3rd part to the Resident Evil series, which by the way is the greatest game series yet.
