Resident Evil 3 Remake Review: Good But Not Satisfactory
After the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake which was released last year, the follow-up series, Resident Evil 3 Remake was released by Capcom. As we know that Resident Evil 2 Remake gets very good interest from gamers. Capcom succeeded in concocting this game with a new style without having to disappoint the fans. For this third remake series, the appearance of Jill Valentine, as the main character, has changed drastically. You won’t find short skirts with blue open-shoulder tops anymore. This character design change is made in such a way to make it look more realistic and relevant.
Likewise Carlos, the companion character. In this remake series, Carlos does not appear with Syahrul Gunawan’s middle parted hair in the soap opera Jin and Jun which was popular more than 2 decades ago. Carlos now looks more masculine with a beard and random curls. In terms of gameplay, Capcom has changed drastically. You will run Jill from a third-person perspective accompanied by a more lively environment. Want to know more details? Follow the Resident Evil 3 review article from Buddy Game this time.
Storyline and Gameplay of Resident Evil 3 Remake
Continuing the gameplay from the previous remake series, Capcom designed the Resident Evil 3 Remake game with a third person style. This style has long been used by Capcom in the previous Resident Evil series. The third person style starts from the fourth series of RE. Even so, Resident Evil 4 is still the best game of all time. Junebe because of that, Capcom continues to style like this. Not only is it different in terms of gameplay, the storyline in this game has also changed.
At the beginning of the game, Jill is in her apartment room and there she has a nightmare. He saw the appearance of himself turning into a zombie in a bathroom mirror. Seeing herself become a zombie, Jill pointed a gun to her temple. And he woke up from sleep. After waking up from a bad dream, bad things happen. His apartment was attacked by a large monster with a scary face. There he was attacked and chased by the big creepy creature.
In terms of gameplay, instead of presenting gameplay that is full of puzzles, this game has a fast pace action style, although there are still puzzles in the style of Resident Evil games. Then, you will be confronted by zombies and monsters repeatedly. However, there is something unfortunate about RE 3 Remake is that the playtime is so fast. The thing we were a bit disappointed with. Just because the game has a fast-paced action style, doesn’t mean the game time is accelerated, right? Apart from that, there are other things that we think make this game feel incomplete, namely that there are some missing places. You will never find a place like a park again. Even though for us this place is quite an iconic place for this game.
This game offers several things that did not exist in the original series. When dealing with monsters and zombies, you can do evasive movements which are also accompanied by the slow motion feature. This makes the action really feel. 15 hours of gameplay will feel endless because Capcom doesn’t give you long breaks.
What else do you want to show off in this newest game besides graphics. This game comes with incredibly cool details. Graphically not far from Resident Evil 2 Remake. As we explained above, this time Jill no longer wears skimpy clothes without war equipment. This time Jill wore a blue tank-top and cargo trousers accompanied by police equipment. This shows that Capcom wants to be relevant. Although in appearance different, Jill Valentine’s spirit was not lost. However, don’t worry, if you like the classic Jill Valentine costume, you can get the DLC. In addition, the environment offered in Resident Evil 3 Remake is more interactive.
For us, Resident Evil 2 Remake is one of the most successful RE games. However, that success was not followed by his successors. Many things that have been changed in Resident Evil 3 Remake actually made us a little annoyed, especially the removal of some iconic places. Even so, this game is not worth trying and not good. There are still many aspects that can be enjoyed in this RE 3 Remake.
