Key points

Port of Biohazard 3: Last Escape made for Windows 2000 / XP.
Has improved compatibility for modern versions of Windows.
Has the highest quality FMVs out of any other release.
Capped at 30 FPS
Suffers from PSX's shakey polygon/vertices effect (the same effect can be produced on the original RE2 Version when running in software mode) due to low-precision vertex transformation. Use Resident Evil 3 Classic REbirth to fix.
Random crashes during door transitions due to incorrect sound handling. Use Resident Evil 3 Classic REbirth to fix.
