Little

So while I said I wasn’t buying any new games this year.. My girlfriend went and gifted me this horror thriller in all it’s glory. So here’s what I have to say about it…and here..we…go

To begin with any game that has Crabs… or promotes crabs.. or Lobsters.. IS GOING TO BE SCARY!! …or so I thought.. This Remake of the 1999 Classic Resident Evil 3 is actually not as bad as people say but not as good as I thought it would be. While people complain currently about the level of replay and shortness of the game I think it goes without saying you are only playing ONE character.. Not two as in Previous titles like Resident Evil 1 and 2 or any of the later games. Jill is the star this time around and while it takes very little from it’s horror elements of the previous Remake “RE 2” it fills it with action….again..

It’s a beautiful game to play and while it’s mechanics are pretty much exactly what was given with RE 2 Remake. It adds to it elements that work and some that almost NEVER work. Jill this time around is given the ability to mix products such as ammunition, and herbs this time, which is an interesting element added from the original and really brings nothing new to this remake “if you knew how to do it in RE 3.. YOU KNOW how to do it in RE 3 Remake”. I WISH I could say that about the dodging mechanic or even any of the button mashing elements that happen during the zombie attacks.  Both are poorly placed and mechanics that I guess a person could learn to master but why? It doesn’t help for much and isn’t nearly as helpful as the original game.

It does sprinkle some musical elements from the classic game which is awesome but while running around Raccoon City most of what you will run into is more of the same from the RE 2 Remake… SOME New monsters are in it which is cool and dealing with Nemesis is about the same as it ever was.. ANNOYING AND FUN!! I never really felt any elements of dread.  Even while the chaos was going on it just didn’t feel like it took the time to tell the why!!?

I can say that 60 bucks is for sure.. A HIGH PRICE to pay for this game. I would wait till it gets cheaper because it’s not worth the price.. HOWEVER.. It is a great experience of game and really it didn’t have anything bad about it. Just not as big a impact as RE 2 Remake.. again.. it’s a beautiful game and I loved playing it .. but in the end felt .. more could have been done and elements should have been better implemented.
