Description

includes Resident Evil Resistance, a new 1 vs 4 online multiplayer game set in the Resident Evil universe where four survivors face-off against a sinister Mastermind.

Resident Evil 3 for PC is a follow-on from the remake of the previous Resident Evil 2, and a remake of the original 1999 game.

This remake looks to be just as popular as the previous one, the developers having chosen exactly the right features when choosing which to improve and which to leave alone. There is even more action than Resident Evil 2, as per customer feedback, although the game developers have not made this game as shiny slick and reminiscent of a Hollywood blockbuster as Resident Evil 6 – which is a good thing.

About the Game


Against the backdrop of a lethal ‘cannibal virus’ which seems to be transforming citizens into zombies, Jill Valentine and her colleagues in the police are trying to uncover the full extent of the nefarious doings of the evil Umbrella Corp. Carlos Oliveira is also back, the rough-looking mercenary also looking into Umbrella Corp’s actions and motivations for his own reasons. Their semi-uneasy truce adds spice to the game: can she trust him fully or should she hold back a bit? Only playing through will tell!

There are more open spaces than the rather restricted confines of Resident Evil 2, and this game gives players decent views of and around Racoon City which is rather lovely, even as it is also rather conflicted. Shops, sewers and subways are all explorable, and sharp-eyed players will spot immovable yellow padlocks in some places. Once Jill has learned one or two rather specific skills, she can return to these areas to see what is hidden behind them

New Way to Play


Each purchase of the game comes with a copy of Resident Evil Resistance – which is a new, seemingly unbalanced 1 versus 4 game. There is one Mastermind against four survivors all playing across one limited map.

The survivors aim to keep that appellation (i.e., survive!), while the mastermind is more of a distant overlord, placing traps and enemies and not actively engaging with the survivors. The Mastermind needs to play something of a chess game, anticipating the survivors’ movements, while they should behave as though everything is a trap!

Amazing Improvements


The character imagery is vastly improved for both Jill and Carlos. The characters’ clothing and body shapes are slightly less clichéd, and the graphics are immensely improved with the action looking quite like real filmed footage rather than computer rendered action. Jill and Carlos both look very realistic, almost as though they have been photographed rather than drawn.

This humanising effect however, doesn’t translate to Nemesis, the arch enemy, although he too has been improved, tweaked and modified! He is bigger and badder than ever, with awe-inspiring bulk and red-hot rage displayed in the tension of his massive shoulders, the clench of huge Thanos-like fists, and his many and sneaky ways to track you down!

New Move!


  • For this game you can now dodge away from a zombie, should it manage to sneak up to you and get closer than is comfortable.

  • If you time your dodge just right it will give you enough time to grab your gun and sort out the zombie, or run away if you are not looking a fight right now!

  • If a zombie does manage to lay its foul hands on you all is not lost – button mashing (pressing all the buttons simultaneously) can sometimes shake them off and give you precious moments to make your escape!

  • Resident Evil 3 for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.
