Resident Evil 7 grounds itself in elements that made the original great while still indulging in a risky new shift in style that both helps and hurts the beloved formula in equal measure. But it’s also the closest a numbered sequel has come to recapturing Resident Evil’s slow, but thrilling and atmospheric adventure game roots in a while — a welcome return that I truly hope to see more of in the future.

Not the dramatic reinvention I expected, but this is tense and refined survival horror with a brilliantly bleak, grimy atmosphere.

Resident Evil goes back to its founding principles for a more cohesive and chilling breed of horror game that stops short of greatness.

An inspired mix of old school Resi game design and modern presentation, and the best VR options so far in a major release.

A brilliant reinvention for the series and great horror game in its own right.

Despite dragging in spots, Resident Evil 7's house of horrors recaptures the tension that first made the series a household name.

It's hard to know if Resident Evil 7 will stand the test of time as much as classics like the original, or RE4. Taken on its own, however, it's an excellent game that pushes the series in worthy new directions.

Resident Evil 7 can occasionally frustrate with excessive boss fights and patronizing puzzles, but it’s still a scary and violent blast of survival horror that paints a bright future for the franchise. Bloody, tense, and exciting throughout, Resident Evil 7 is exactly what the series needed. Full of dread and brimming with anxiety, the series that started it all has finally found itself after decades of wandering. Welcome home, Resident Evil. We missed you.

It's a bit on the short side and the latter chunk of the game is rather linear, but Resident Evil 7 absolutely recaptures the feeling of survival horror established in the first game. The Baker family is terrifying and spending time trapped in their home is damned good horror. A new direction for the franchise, returning to an old one seems like it was a great idea.

Just when everyone counted Resident Evil out, Capcom has shown up to prove otherwise. Resident Evil is alive, and although it isn’t quite as we remember, its new perspective has brought with it a terrifying and intimate experience.

Resident Evil 7 went beyond my expectations, and I feel we have an instant classic here. I want to jump back in right now, and I have a feeling I'll be doing so for years to come.

Despite the changes made, the end of Zoe picks up the witness of Resident Evil 7, offering a great gaming experience and maintaining the change of direction of the saga made by the previous one. Although it is a good ending to close the story, its high price and its short duration are not so much. Even so, it's worth playing.

For them to successfully steer one of their flagships back on track, Capcom has done what many thought was unthinkable. It was less than twelve months ago that the publisher released Umbrella Corps, at which point I – and no doubt many others – were ready to call time on the series. Resident Evil 7 definitely has a handful of weak points, but it’s by far the best AAA survival horror game we’ve seen in quite some time.

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard is a great new direction for the series that's genuinely scary and is only marginally held back by tedious combat.

Resident Evil VII is a panic-inducing game and one hell of a survival horror. It succesfully goes back to the roots of the series and while it could last longer, is a thrill-ride you don't want to miss.
