"Talking about scary moments nemensis will choke you with those moments to death!"
Resident Evil 3:Nemensis the 3rd in the line of PSCapcom survival horror games is a great game on it'sown right and not just a sequel that was churned up inorder to satisfy the appetite of gamers.
The story takes place 24 hours before RE2 and 24 hoursafter and you take control of Jill Valentine althoughyou get to meet other character like CarlosOliveiira,Brad and Mikhail just to name a few.
From the intro you get to see as zombies are takingover the city and the S.W.A.T and U.B.C.S forces aretrying to stop them with little success as they areeverywhere.
The graphics are great and look crisp and betterlooking than those in RE2 with more interaction goingon with the background as you can blow up drums tokill hordes of zombies.
The control method is similar to the previousofferings but with the addition of a 180 degree turn,dodge attack and escape from attack features now.Talking about replay value this game builds on thoseof Dino crises by:
1) offering alternate paths and decisions which affectthe cutscences and ending you get.
2)There is a mixing facility which allows you to formdifferent types of bullets.
3)Finishing the game gives you alternate clothes forRegina and also opens up the mercernary game were youget the chance to buy weapons such as the Rocketlauncher or Gatling gun and also infinite ammo.
4)You get to play as Carlos when you finish the game
5)each time you finish the game you get an epiloguefor a character.
Talking about scary moments nemensis will choke youwith those moments to death. He even has a rocketlauncher to shoot you with. There is a kind of analogybetween nemensis and Tyrant in the second scenarios ofeach character in RE2. Another creature you will hateis the gravedigger, till you find out how to outwitthem
Altogether this is worth every dim you will spend ifyou purchase it . I personally have all of capcom'ssurvival genre and waiting to see what is in store forPS2.
