They had a fully working version of the game before last E3 according to some in the gaming media. Most of the rest was supposed to be polish and QA.

That's definitely a game worrh waiting for

prepare to be disappointed by RE3
Yeah, it’s just okay. It looks and plays almost exactly like its predecessor, which is great.

Feels much more like an action game than a survival horror game. The jump from RE2 to RE3 feels kinda like the jump from RE4 to RE5.

Haven’t finished it yet (I’m almost halfway through), but I’d probably give it 7/10. Haven’t tried the multiplayer yet.

im about 80% through and I can’t believe I’m already that far. It’s so short I feel ripped off. Haven’t done a single puzzle, and every boss thus far has been nemesis. Even the forced encounters with nemesis are boring.. mr x was just so good last resident evil maybe I expected more. 7/10 seems fair, I’d probably go down to 6. Just hasn’t seemed like a typical RE game to me. Never played the original third installment.

Yeah, it's not getting great reviews.

Bummer. I picked up the game already but haven't started it. Enjoyed the demo though.
the demo portion of the game has been the best part. The second nemesis fight wasn’t bad, the first was fun. But the demo portion is honestly a huge chunk of the game, so short

I always thought it was funny how Resident Evil 4 was such a huge hit for being much more grounded and actually scary, so the response was to do the complete opposite and go right back to all the crazy nonsense in 5.

I just played that game for the first time a couple of years ago, just for the hell of it. It was fun as hell even if the engine and graphics were dated. It's even more fun going through the second time with things like a Chicago Typewriter and unlimited ammo.

I actually didn’t hate RE5. I didn’t love it though ha

Honestly I thought Mr. X was more annoying than anything in an otherwise tense game.

This one’s been... yeah. The original RE3 didn’t quite live up to the original RE2 either, for what it’s worth, even though Nemesis is an iconic badass villain.

I'm watching a video of a couple of devs from Half-Life 2 watch a comment on a speed run and as the guy is flying through the airboat section one of them says, "This section is a lot longer than I remembered."

Another commented, "Well, no one thought the airboat section was too long."

:chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

I'm almost done with RE3. Haven't played the multiplayer yet.

Can't recommend anyone buys this at full price, as you'll be able to clear it within 4-8 hours of gameplay on any difficulty. This game is about as long as the DLC for other games. In fact, this should have just been a DLC for the RE2 remake. I'd imagine I could platinum this game in about 15-20 hours. Resident Evil games are generally made so that you play through them multiple times and they typically all have unlockables and achievements for doing speed runs, but even this game feels short by Resident Evil standards.

Wait for it to go on sale if you plan to get it. If I had to do it again, I'd wait til I could pick it up for half or even a third of the price.

Minimal spoilers ahead.

PROS:

- Graphics
- Sound
- Controls
- Atmosphere in some areas
- Fleshes out some of what was happening behind the scenes in RE2
- Nemesis is still a badass character and his redesigns are pretty cool

CONS:

- Much more of an action game than survival horror game
- The only legitimately tense/scary areas are the ones they reuse from RE2
- Almost no puzzles
- Very little variety in enemies
- Way too short, and some areas from the original have been almost completely cut (such as the clock tower)
- No alternate endings
- Overall feels rushed

Overall, it's a fun diversion for a weekend afternoon, but nothing beyond that.

cant stress this enough.

do not buy this game at full price.

beat it in 6.5 in game hours (literally spent 50 mins in one location because I was lost and the route was right under my nose) died 18 times and killed the final two bosses first try for both. Overall I think I died twice in all the boss encounters in the game. This game is extremely easy, extremely short, and extremely rushed

Just finished Fire Emblem 3 Houses. Loved the game, but some of the battles would've been brutal on non-casual.

Black Eagle house, chose to side with edelgard, both on the battlefield and off. Recruited Manuela, Alois, Hanneman, Annette,lysithia, mercedes, and shamir. "freed" claude.

Looking forward to secondd playthrough and/or dlc content
