With the Resident Evil 3 Remake Demo being released last week, horror gamers have been indulging in anticipation of the game’s release.

Both developed and released by Capcom, Resident Evil 3 is a survival horror game set in the popular Resident Evil series.
As the Resident Evil 3 Remake release date nears, Capcom offered a pretty sizable demo to play.
Following last year’s release of the brilliantly executed Resident Evil 2 Remake, an R.E 3 remake was inevitable.
Set at the same time as the full outbreak in the R.E 2 remake, the story this time follows the main protagonist of the original Resident Evil, Jill Valentine.
A member of the famed Special Weapons and Tactics Squad (S.T.A.R.S), Valentine is a hardcore super-cop who doesn’t scare easily.
The game also features a second character, Carlos Oliviera, an Umbrella-hired mercenary initially hired to secure survivors.
Just like Leon and Claire in R.E 2, Jill and Carlos are stuck in Raccoon City and find themselves stuck in a bad situation as they try to help people.
The game also features an ever-present menace in the form of Nemesis, a hulking bio-weapon similar to Tyrant in Resident Evil 2.
Similarly, Jill and Carlos must evade Nemesis as they progress their story across the city until the final showdown that concludes the story.
First impressions of the game are that everything has gone really bad and not many people have survived, a typical Resident Evil story.
The game offers tightly controlled situations that can be tackled in a variety of ways depending on your preferred play style.
The action is evenly paced and includes all the creepy and disgusting scenarios expected of a Resident Evil Game.
The excellent gameplay is similar to last year’s Resident Evil 2 as although zombies are slow, they are quick to grab and can be extremely dangerous in groups.
This is where scrounging for bullets become necessary and working on your aim is vital.
Jill and Carlos do have a “quick-step” move that when timed right can have them completely dodge the undead’s reach.
Other items include better weapons, weapon upgrades and powerful ammo as well as the obligatory red, green and blue herbs.
Herbs are vital for restoring health and removing poisons, something which you may find yourself using a lot.
The controls are pretty much the same as last year’s Resident Evil 2, as is the interface.
The visual and aural components of the title are also excellent as this game has also been redesigned using Resident Evil 7’s R.E Engine.
Also included in this version is an online mode named Resident Evil: Resistance.
Resistance is an intriguing online multiplayer game.
A group of players gets to play as Survivors while one player gets to be the “Mastermind”.
Survivors must escape a given situation by working together while Mastermind uses a control terminal to set traps for the Survivors.
Survivors each have special skills that they must use effectively while Mastermind can directly control zombies and Tyrant.

Resident Evil 3 Remake looks set to deliver all the same amazing gameplay as last year’s remake and more.
The inclusion of a unique and very Resi online mode is genuinely exciting and will deliver even more great content and post-campaign value.
The Resident Evil 3 Remake Demo is available now for PS4, Xbox One and PC ahead of the game’s release on 3 April 2020.
