Aside from battling her way through legions of flesh-eating zombies and other creatures, Jill is stalked by the inexorable Nemesis, a new breed of Tyrant manufactured by Umbrella Europe that is on the hunt for all remaining S.T.A.R.S. members.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was originally released on the PlayStation back in 1999 in the US and Japan, and arrived in the UK in February 2000. The game was eventually ported to the PC, Dreamcast, and GameCube.
