    All reviews being negative about the 6 hour play time.

    For me that's a massive positive. All killer no filler and pretty sure Resident Evil 2 was the same length once you took out the second playthrough.


  • Moderators Posts: 5,558 ✭✭✭Azza


    RE3 Nemesis was a shorter game than RE2 was anyway.

    Even regardless of the scores and length I'm sure I'll like it and replay it on the harder difficulty modes which apparently mix things up like enemy and item placements.

    Will give Resistance a shot as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,904 ✭✭✭Mr Crispy


    The original RE3 was only 6ish hours too, iirc?


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,081 ✭✭✭✭TitianGerm


    I always remember it as a shorter game but one you'd play multiple times to try unlock the different weapons.

    How long was RE2 Remake? Feel like Leon and Claire's main playthroughs were 8-10 hours each?

    Think I got through the first playthrough in just under 7 hours. But it did have 4 different scenarios to play through (similar as they were) whereas RE3 doesn't.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 51,372 CMod ✭✭✭✭Retr0gamer


    My first playthrough was 6 hours.

    It feels longer.

    Any word on extra scenarios being added and mercenaries like in remake 2?

    I mean mercenaries is why resi 3 is fondly remembered.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,253 ✭✭✭DaveyDave


    If it's anywhere near as good as RE2 I don't care about the length. The 2nd scenario on RE2 didn't necessarily add much to the games in my experience, just an excuse to replay it really.

    I've been replaying RE2 for trophies so I've already replayed it several times regardless of what character or replay modes there is.

    Still looking forward to this, I haven't been this excited about a game since RDR2. I was never a Resident Evil fan but RE2 was just so good. Currently doing S-Rank runs.

    I just don't have anywhere to buy it...

    Edit: I see Amazon have it listed now, let's see how long it takes with free shipping.

    I think they've just abandoned Mercenaries in favour of the 4v1 Resistance game. I image there'll be some form of extra scenarios like with RE2 though.

    Karak from ACG has a review up. Watching now in anticipation. He's very harsh but always fair in his reviews:

    80 on Metacritic.

    Absolute worthless garbage confirmed.

    Disappointed about the length to be honest. That said, I've preordered the thing so it's too late now. Should be fun at the very least.

    None of that was revealed for a few weeks after launch the last time

    I'd suspect the same here

    Unfortunately for me my collectors edition is click and collect in gamestop so won't be playing this for a while

    Gutted :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,611 ✭✭✭✭ERG89


    It was never as good as RE2 in the first place but unlike RE2 this remake is full price justified with what looks like a tacked on multiplayer that nobody was asking for. A few reviews I have read or watched mentioned it has less puzzles and locations than the original while the decisions that were in the original aren't there now.
    ACG gave a good review of it, the general consensus seems to be its a drop off in quality from RE2 except IGN who's attempt at getting a box quote is saying its just as good as its predecessor. Yeah, I'm sure it is. ;)


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 51,372 CMod ✭✭✭✭Retr0gamer


    The original resident evil 3 was insanely short so I think it's nostalgia speaking for people remembering the original and it had some annoying puzzles. It was 3 hours. Maybe 4 at most.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 38,713 CMod ✭✭✭✭ancapailldorcha


    Same complaint from Gamestop. They've given it a 6.

    Just a general comment but I'm finding there has been an incredible amount of nitpicking in the general gaming community over the last few months.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,301 ✭✭✭madcabbage


    If people are complaining about the length, clearly they've never played a Resident Evil game before. RE3 was notoriously short but loved by the speedrun community. Still looking forward to Friday, my favourite game as a kid being finally reimagined. :)

    You've just been listening to me too much.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,081 ✭✭✭✭TitianGerm


    I'm not buying straight away as I've to much to play at the minute but it'll be a great buy in a month or two at a reduced price.

    On the upside, I suppose I can always give Revelations 2 & RE7 a go at last.
