Author's Review
RE3 is the best action/adventure game for playstation yet. From the minute i bought this game it took either bathroom or a dinner break to make me put it down. There is something exciting about pumping a zombie full of assault rifle ammo. Be Careful! you need to save the ammo for later as i learned after about 10 minutes.

Basically the concept of this game is to go winding through the city of Raccoon City killing all that comes in between you and the end of the game. You luckily are able to use a map to help navigate but don't rely on it too much as it is rather confusing. Once you put in the cd and begin, there are two difficulties to choose from hard or easy. Try easy first so that you can get a hang for what you need to do. The only different thing about the two difficulties is that the hard mode allows you to put together pieces of special guns after killing the boss, Nemesis. But for a first timer start with easy.

The controls can be a little difficult at times so before getting into the game too much, try to sit down and read the manual. The one thing that i hate about the controls is that fact that R1 needs to be held down along with tapping x for fire. It would have been a whole lot simpler just to make X shoot.

Graphically i belive that Sony displayed all of what Playstation is about. The characters show plenty of facial expressions and limp/walk slow after being injured. Also that fact that blood sprays and the zombies fly after being shot with a shotgun makes the game very impressive. I love the fact that if you are attacked you are still allowed to kick and fight back.

One thing that i hate about this game is after you die, you need to basically reload the whole game. Once you die a screen comes up and says "You Died" and then brings you back to the main menu. Sony would have been smarter if they allowed you to just restart from where you just died instead of having to impatiently wait for Playstation to load.

Sound is very impressive. All of the weapons sound as much to real life as a game could probably get. Unfortunately some of the character moans and groans could be alittle louder. Some voices like Jill, the main characters, could be alittle louder as they are more faint than some of the male characters.

Your probably wondering who this game is directed to. It is probably directed to the older teen/adult who enjoys blowing the heads off of zombies. If you are a parent and are thinking about buying this game for a younger kid(10 and younger) than bad decision. This game has way too much violence for someone of that age.
