Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
Capcom brings the series back to its roots while making it all feel new again.
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.
To all Resident Evil fans out there, I say welcome home. You’re going to enjoy your stay with the Bakers.
Resident Evil 7 Biohazard brings back the glory of horror and excitement but is dragged down by a cliche story, easy puzzles, limited enemies, and overstretched game time.
