It's been just days after the gruesome T-Virus disaster had finally ceased at the mansion's laboratory in the hills. Because of the revelations made on her journey, Jill Valentine resigned from S.T.A.R.S and attempted her escape from Raccoon City, now in shambles. But to her surprise, it was just the beginning in what seems to be a lose-lose situation after realizing her nightmares weren't over yet.
Relying on her cunning and survival skills, Jill must put them to the ultimate test against flesh-eating zombies that now penetrate the city streets. She must also face-off against other hideous creatures of the night including bloodthirsty hunters, ferocious hellhounds, and a lumbering Nemesis. Concocted by the shady Umbrella Corporatioin, biotech terror is about to be unleashed once again. This time, however, it won't go unnoticed.
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis has players assuming the role of Jill Valentine. You'll team up a variety of new characters and a few familiar ones that will assist you along the way. One of the new characters is Carlos Oliveira -- an Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service agent; the U.B.C.S is an offshoot special taskforce separately formed by the Umbrella Corporation. While playing as partners with another character, the interface allows you to switch between the two during situations that call for it.
While other actions, elements and control schemes are the same as previous Resident Evil titles (such as file and map screens, combining weapons and herbs, chest boxes, saving via ink ribbons and a ranking process), Resident Evil 3: Nemesis features a few gameplay twists. Because the Nemesis is chasing you throughout the city streets, there are key moments in which you'll choose one of two distinctive options: to evade or face your opponent. Your decisions will effect the outcome of the game. You can also combine various ammunition types to create custom-made firepower! The game also supports Sony's Dual Shock Analog Controller for both analog control support and the vibration function.
There's also the Mercenaries game, a bonus option that unlocks upon completion of the game. Using the various Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service agents, it plays much like Resident Evil 2: Platinum's Extreme Battle Mode with an added time limit. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis offers faster animation, an improved graphics engine and an increased number of monsters onscreen as enhancements. Initial copies of the game also include a bonus CD -- a Capcom demo disc featuring Dino Crisis!
Come now, there's no time left. Find a way for Jill to leave behind the living dead once and for all. You have what it takes...it's in your blood.
