Resident Evil 3 review roundup: mixed feedback for Capcom's latest remake

By Heidi Nicholas,
The reviews are starting to come out for the Resident Evil 3 remake, and while there's a lot in its favour, it seems that the game is not yet proving as popular as its predecessor. Below, you can see a roundup of the reviews so far, with the platform or specification included where possible.


  • VG247: 3/5 "It’s still worth playing, but Resident Evil 3 Remake is a step backwards for Capcom, coming off the back of one of the best games of last year." Reviewed on PS4 Pro.
  • Eurogamer: "At times brilliant, but not a patch on its predecessor." Reviewed on PS4.
  • IGN: 9/10 "With a sublimely detailed world and breakneck survival-horror gameplay, Resident Evil 3 is just as good as its 2019 predecessor." Reviewed on PS4.
  • PCGamesN: 7/10 "A great follow-up to last year's Resident Evil 2 Remake, but it loses some magic by upping the pace."
  • PC Gamer: 58/100 "A disappointing step back for the series." Reviewed on RTX 2080 Super, Intel i7-9700K, 16GB RAM.
  • Polygon: "Like last year’s game, Resident Evil 3 is a great example of what a video game remake should be. It’s just that the source material is a little less impressive this time around — and so is the end result." Reviewed on PS4.
  • Game Informer: 9/10 "With this remake, Capcom has greatly improved one of my least-loved entries in the series." Reviewed on Xbox One.
  • Windows Central: 4.5/5 "While a couple of things could've been tweaked to provide a longer experience, Capcom provides a fantastic survival horror remake that carefully balances the action with the terror." Reviewed on Xbox One X.
Resident Evil 3, including Resident Evil Resistance, launches in a few days on April 3rd.

Jill Valentine is one of the last remaining people in Raccoon City to witness the atrocities Umbrella performed. To stop her, Umbrella unleashes their ultimate secret weapon: Nemesis! Also includes Resident Evil Resistance, a new 1 vs 4 online multiplayer game set in the Resident Evil universe.
