I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of “persistence hunting” – the idea that a hunter doesn’t need to run faster than its prey as long as they chase with dogged determination. Early human hunters would often pursue their game for hours – or even days – until they’d brought down some behemoths. After an extended chase, even the healthiest creatures must collapse, beaten and exhausted from the endless pursuit. It sounds like an incredibly terrifying way to meet your end, and if you ever wanted to know how that prey feels, play Resident Evil 3.
Return to the Raccoon City zombie outbreak in this third-person shooter than reworks everything, including enemies, puzzles, and environments
Resident Evil 3 looks clean and crisp, and the monster designs are appropriately grotesque
The soundtrack is intense, which matches the emphasis on action. Ambient effects and zombie moans set you on edge even when the bullets aren’t flying
Like the Resident Evil 2 remake, the over-the-shoulder gunplay feels good. Unfortunately, Jill’s dodge is a bit inconsistent
This is another spectacular remake for the series, and Nemesis is an imposing enemy who relentlessly chases you throughout the game.
