The sequel to the great Resident Evil 2 is a great continuation of the survival horror series, this time with you playing as Jill Valentine, and fighting against a persistent superboss who jumps into the story at certain points to give you a pasting.
Or – if you give it a pasting back – you get a reward.
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is less about teamwork and more about unlockables.
If you complete the main story, a minigame (called “Mercenaries“) is unlocked, and this minigame is just as much fun as the main game, if not more!
Actually, Capcom realised that Mercenaries was such a hit that it made it available from the beginning in all its subsequent releases and conversions of Resident Evil 3.
Resident Evil 3 is more of the same from Capcom. In fact: this game revisits some of the locations from the second game from exactly the same angles. The crossover works well though, and the intervening, titular ‘Nemesis’ boss character helps ramp up the tension. You know he’s coming. You just don’t know when…
