Resident Evil 3 is now available on Xbox One and PC, and comes with Resident Evil Resistance. Resident Evil Resistance is an asymmetrical multiplayer that game that places one player in the role of a mastermind who has to take everyone else out. The title costs $60 and there's only one version available.
According to many Xbox One X owners, the game doesn't run all that well on the current-generation console. It seems to be a problem with optimization. However, today, Capcom released a new patch that should fix the performance issues. According to a report by WCCFtech, many gamers are saying that the latest update, which is around 300 MB on Xbox One X, fixes the frame rate problems and now it seems like the game is 60 frames per second locked.
In Windows Central's review, Samuel Tolbert wrote, "If you enjoy horror games, it doesn't matter if you're a longtime Resident Evil fan or someone looking for a scary experience, grabbing this is simply a no-brainer. The combat feels great, and the balance between action and fear feels incredibly well handled, while at this point, it just goes without saying that a game built with the RE Engine will look great and run smoothly. Capcom is now three for three with Resident Evil games since 2017, and I'm looking forward to wherever the series goes next."

Resident Evil 3 isn't the longest game in the world, but it is a worthwhile experience for fans of the original. You might want to wait for a sale though, given its 5-7 hour gameplay length.
