Resident Evil 3


As many of you may know, I am a huge fan of Resident Evil video games ever since I played the Resident Evil 1 for the Playstation. Although there are several new titles in the Resident Evil series, such as Resident Evil 5 Gold, and also the newest Resident Evil movie came out, I would like to talk about another great title, Resident Evil 3 Nemesis. Resident Evil 3 takes place during the events of Resident Evil 2 and you play as S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine and Carlos Olivera (briefly). One of the most well known characters in this game is the enemy, known as the Nemesis, which is an incredibly powerful creature that seems unstoppable, and it also has an obsession for killing S.T.A.R.S. members and anyone and anything else that gets in its way. I found it kind of funny that the Nemesis actually had killed other zombies just to get to me, when playing as Jill Valentine.

Some of the main differences in gameplay when compared to Resident Evil 1 and Resident Evil 2 includes the option to turn around quickly when playing as Jill or Carlos. What I also liked about Resident Evil 3 was that you can visit many new locations within Racoon City such as a restaurant, gas station, church, park, newspaper office and many more. I also liked the fact that there are many new weapons, my personal favorite is the mine thrower, which shoots an explosive dart at enemies and is capable of blowing up several zombies at one time. I also liked the Freeze rounds which are for the grenade launcher and are loaded with liquid nitrogen, in actuality, the freeze rounds are one of your best options for killing the Nemesis. To add more fun to the game, it is also possible to create your own ammunition and grenades by collecting different types of gunpowder. It is also important to note that each time you "kill" the Nemesis, he drops a special item, including gun parts, which when collected you can create a special 9mm pistol and a special shotgun.

All in all, if you are a Resident Evil fan, or even a fan of Capcom games in general, check out Resident Evil 3, it is available on Playstation 1,NintendoGamecube, PC, Dreamcast, and can even be downloaded on Playstation Network.
