I would say so.
It's revitalised the genre, after the action heavy games like 4, 5 and 6 took the series in the opposite direction. I find it's a bit hard though, and lacking in care in some ways.
For example, zombies are unusually harder to kill, and unlike the original, every area is rather poorly lit up. Headshots are ineffective most of the time and there's only a random chance one will work. It just kind of happens, but they never reveal when this will happen. It feels unfair.
But it definitely has RE qualities such as looking for key items, running away from a large stalker enemy, secondary creatures to contend with other than zombies, and there's some puzzles. But certain enemies from the original are gone, like the spiders and the crows. The plants in the lab are also now human like ones instead of being giant bulbs. They cut some other enemy types too, but these are the most disappointing.
The A and B scenarios of the remake are muddled up. For example, both characters go to the gas station at the start and do the same things, resulting in you seeing the same cutscenes. You have the same boss battles with the mutated William Birkin too, which makes no sense.
In the original, when you finished Claire A, Leon B was so different because Leon was doing different things in the second scenario, and Mr. X was not in the initial scenario. But in the remake, it's like Capcom couldn't be bothered to make it unique, and so they just repeated things.
The RE3 remake is trash - as a remake. But if you don't look it as a remake and just as a game in general, you may like it because it has great voice acting, and the Hunters are very intimidating. The Hunters being the fast scaly reptile things that can jump and swipe you with their claws. They also make a clicking sound as they patrol the corridors.
But as a remake, it's an absolute epic failure. They cut even more content. Some locations are only there to serve as backdrops, like the clock tower where the rescue chopper was shot down in the original. The factory is also not included, where you had to do that irritating water sample puzzle. It's just a generic lab like the one from the RE2 remake, and Barry Burton is not in the ending. This is particularly stupid, because Barry did in fact save Jill and Carlos. It's canon to the lore. And there's no giant worm boss fight either, as that's yet another thing they cut.
Capcom could have done so much better.
