Resident Evil Village
Top Critic Average
Resident Evil Village is a genuinely engrossing and increasingly combat-heavy continuation of the Ethan Winters story.
A grimly beautiful collection of killer horror set-pieces, with some of the most memorably grotesque enemies in Resi history.
Capcom's follow-up to its first-person Resi reinvention is a fantastic horror romp - for its first half, at least.
A competent but uninspired sequel that's unwise to create so many obvious comparisons to Resident Evil 4, although it still manages to find some memorable moments of its own.
A strong start and okay finish makes this average out as decent but not amazing installment.
Village doesn't pull any punches when it comes to horror, but a consistent rollout of new weapons and tools makes it hard to walk away from these terrors
Resident Evil Village is the perfect cocktail of horror and action
The sequel to Resident Evil 7 leans heavily on Resident Evil 4's brand of action, but adds its own sensibilities to the mix.
Village may not live up to the potential of its immediate predecessor, but it’s a safe new entry in the series that induces the same entertaining anxiety as my favorite Resident Evil games and provides a few interesting wrinkles for where the franchise might go next.
