A fan-made remake of Resident Evil 3 has been blowing minds across the Internet – for its jaw-dropping graphics and faithful recreation of the original game.
The remake, which has been created by fans of the iconic series using the next-gen Unreal Engine 4, is currently free to download online.
It includes accurate recreations of the game's classic features, down to the smallest details such as its 'tank' camera control scheme.
Fans of the game have praised it for its 'amazing' graphics using the Unreal Engine, which provides some spectacular next-gen visual features, as well as the addition of the original control scheme.
One gamer said: "Hope you can finish this amazing project. Screw present day Capcom," referring to the original game's developers.
Capcom themselves released a remake of Resident Evil 3 in 2020 using its own RE Engine. Although this proved a commercial success, it only provided third-person camera controls rather than the 'tank' controls of the original game (i.e. fixed-camera scenes). This proved a source of criticism for some fans.

The creators of the remake say they hope to eventually complete a full version of the game, although provided no details on when this would be.
It marks the latest fan effort at remaking a videogame using next-gen graphics.
Similar projects, such as Black Mesa Source (a remake of Valve's 1999 hit, Half-Life), have taken years and years but gone onto attract the support of the game's original creators.
Unreal Engine has also been used to recreate the popular Simpsons game, Hit 'n' Run, with a developer building the title accurately in a matter of hours.
