The game received generally favorable reviews from critics, with its graphics, presentation, and gameplay receiving commendation, although criticism was directed towards its short length and pace.


Resident Evil 3 is a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, a survival horror video game released for PlayStation in 1999. Unlike the original, which uses tank controls and fixed camera angles, the remake features third-person shooter gameplay similar to the 2019 Resident Evil 2 remake. It includes an online multiplayer mode, Resident Evil: Resistance, which puts a team of four players against a "mastermind" who can create traps, enemies, and other hazards. The beginning of Resident Evil 3 however, has players briefly controlling Jill in a first person perspective, in a dream and then in her apartment, engaging with the environment around her much like the characters you assume the role of in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.


Raccoon City is thrown into chaos by a zombie apocalypse caused by an outbreak of the T-Virus. On September 28, 1998, former Special Tactics And Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.) member Jill Valentine is attacked in her apartment by an intelligent bioweapon known as Nemesis-T Type, who attempts to kill her and all remaining members of S.T.A.R.S. Upon escaping her building, she meets up with fellow S.T.A.R.S. officer Brad Vickers during her escape, but Brad falls to zombies while trying to save Jill. After another encounter with Nemesis, she is saved by Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (U.B.C.S.) mercenary Carlos Oliveira. Carlos and his group of surviving U.B.C.S. mercenaries - Mikhail Victor, Tyrell Patrick, and Nicholai Ginovaef - have set up subway trains which they plan to use to evacuate surviving civilians from the city.

After surviving several encounters with Nemesis, Jill manages to reactivate power to the subway, while Carlos and Tyrell remain in the city to search for Dr. Nathaniel Bard, an Umbrella scientist who might know how to make a vaccine for the T-virus and save the city. As Jill, Nicholai and Mikhail depart in the train, Mikhail expresses his suspicions towards Nicholai on how their platoon was ambushed by zombies. Nemesis suddenly attacks the train and kills the civilians; Nicholai locks the other two out, forcing them to defend themselves. Nemesis grabs Mikhail, who sacrifices himself by detonating an explosive, causing the train to derail. Jill escapes as seemingly the only survivor of the crash.

Carlos and Tyrell travel to the city's police department, where they plan to find Bard in the S.T.A.R.S. office. The two witness R.P.D. Lieutenant Marvin Branagh be bitten by a zombified Brad, who is dispatched later by Carlos. The two enter the S.T.A.R.S. office for them to realize that Bard is holed up in a hospital, with Bard demanding them to retrieve him. As Tyrell traces Bard’s location, Jill radios Carlos as she is attacked by a heavily mutated Nemesis in front of the city's Clock Tower. She manages to down Nemesis, but it infects her with the virus before escaping, causing her to fall unconscious. Carlos finds Jill roughly half a day later and takes her to Spencer Memorial Hospital, where they have traced Bard’s location. Carlos fights his way through the infested hospital only to find that Bard has been murdered. He views a video from Bard confessing that the T-virus was engineered by Umbrella, and despite Umbrella hiring him to develop the vaccine, Umbrella's board now wants to destroy it and eliminate all traces of the virus' existence. Carlos retrieves the vaccine and administers it to Jill. Tyrell arrives at the hospital and they realize that the U.S. government plans to destroy Raccoon City in a missile strike to eradicate the T-Virus infestation. Carlos travels to the NEST 2 lab underneath the hospital to find more vaccines, while Tyrell tries to contact whoever he can to try and stop the missile strike.

Jill awakens on the day of the missile strike, October 1, and pursues Carlos to NEST 2. She encounters Nicholai, who is revealed to be a supervisor hired by Umbrella to observe and collect data from attacks of several bioweapons, including Nemesis. Nemesis kills Tyrell and continues to pursue Jill throughout the lab. Jill manages to synthesize a vaccine, but an encounter with Nemesis causes Nicholai to retrieve it for himself as he leaves her to fight the monster. After drowning in acid, Nemesis further mutates, and Jill uses a prototype railgun to finally eliminate Nemesis for good. At the hospital's roofdeck, Nicholai disarms Jill and destroys the vaccine, acknowledging that he doesn't care for the city's fate as long as he gets paid for hiding Umbrella's involvement. Carlos intervenes and restrains Nicholai long enough for to Jill shoot and incapacitate him. When interrogated on who he works for, he says that he will tell her and pay her anything if he survives. Disgusted by his greed, Jill retrieves the destroyed vaccine case and escapes the city with Carlos via helicopter, leaving Nicholai for dead. The city is destroyed by the missile strike, and Jill promises to take down Umbrella.

In a post-credits scene, an unknown figure retrieves the destroyed vaccine case from their apartment.
