Resident Evil 3 – Settings & Accessibility First Impressions

As a first time player of Resident Evil I didn’t know what I was expecting when I arrived at Racoon City. I knew of its importance to fans of the franchise and how widely received Resident Evil 2’s remake was last year. But beyond that, that was about it. So when I jumped into Capcom’s newest version of Resident Evil 3, I found the gameplay highly entertaining and frightening where I was screaming at every jump scare and yet could not put it down. That being said, even after reaching the end credits, while there were some awesome options available, there are still significant holes in it’s accessibility that might make it difficult for disabled players.

Watch the video below to watch/hear my thoughts on the game.
