At first I was a bit sceptical about this new game by Capcom, but after a long session, I can tell you I really enjoyed it. Even if it seems completely disconnected from the previous Resident Evils, and there is no mention of any famous character of the saga, this game keeps the main features of the brand. The first person view makes everything scarier, engaging the player in that perfect rhythm made up by the gameplay. If you’re fans of horror video games, you must play it. Capcom succeeded on its purpose, giving a fresh restart to Resident Evil saga.

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.

The frights are also varied (as you’d expect from a horror game) and 10x worse in VR, there are times which are just god damn creepy with sounds all around you, and other times where they’ll chuck in a jump scare which often (always) made me scream like a little girl.

Resident Evil 7 was an absolutely incredible and terrifying experience especially for a horror fan like myself, and a horror survival game I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. And honestly, I think the last time I was this terrified of a game was Silent Hill 2 or the original Resident Evil game. The Resident Evil franchise has finally returned to its true survival/psychological roots, Resident Evil 7 perfectly captures what it would feel like to be put into the same situation as Ethan. And just like Resident Evil 4 reinvented the franchise, Resident Evil 7 has done the some once again. And all I can say at this point in my review is welcome back Resident Evil, you have been missed!

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is Capcom's little survival horror that could. With so much contention about this entry being in first-person and the complete lack of returning protagonists, many felt wrongfully disgruntled about this truly innovative and expertly crafted survival horror that plays the way classic Resident Evil would play in the current generation. The developers finally figured out what made Resident Evil tick, and they did it by taking a long and introspective look at the most beloved entries in the series and putting a new spin on them. PSVR and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard together is by far one of the most successful experiments since Resident Evil 4.

The presentation of this is superb. The screenshots do not do this justice and as for the sound.. Listen to this through a home cinema system and it's going to be atmospheric. For the true experience play it through head phones and don't blame me if the slightest knock, scratch etc. has you jumping like a jack rabbit. This is one slickly executed game. Visually impressive yet visceral, atmospheric and genuinely scary. This is the Resident Evil we have been waiting for for such a long time.

Despite its impotent story, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a wonderful return to form that old-school and new-school fans of RE alike of RE should not miss.

Resident Evil 7 is looking to take you back, to a better time in gaming. One where simple game design mixed with a good story and evolving mechanics over the course of the game. It does most of these things pretty well. Overall Resident Evil 7 (RE7) is a great game. It's really an interesting time, making you rethink situations and what you can do in the game world, while keeping the ending from getting stale and repetitive.
