Her Final Escape – Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (PS1)

Editorials

Imagine that you narrowly survived a living nightmare that was orchestrated to kill not only you but your entire specialised military unit. Then imagine that almost all of your friends that escaped that ordeal have already skipped town to take the fight to the bastards responsible. But, you elected to stay because the city has a particular donut shop you’re a fan or, or whatever equally stupid reason. Oh, and you’re a dumbass.

If you imagined that all correctly, you should now find yourself squarely in a pair of fashionable boots, with a skirt, vest and cute little jumper tied at the waist. Lucky you. This far less functionally-dressed Jill Valentine is the heroine of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis for Playstation, released in 1999, and a game that has seen a recent remake in the style of last year’s popular “The undead chomp on Claire and Leon” simulator – Resident Evil 2.

Before I start here, just a quick warning of potential spoilers for a game that is more than 20 years old. Some of the plot threads might not have been altered with the remake so go and play that nonsense then come back. Okay? Okay.
