'Resident Evil 3' Is a Boring Disappointment

Carlos Oliveira knows how to handle a zombie. If one of the infected gets too close, he shoves them away, time slows down, and drawing his weapon puts a bead directly onto the zombie’s forehead. Squeeze the trigger. No more zombie problems. It’s a good secondary attack for a Resident Evil character to have, especially going into an action sequence where I had to defend a hospital room from the rampaging hordes of the dead. I tossed grenades, used flashbangs to distract long-clawed nightmare mutants, and burned through magazine after magazine of assault rifle ammo. At the end of it all, there’s a huge explosion.
