  • 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.
