Critic Reviews for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - Banned Footage Vol. 1
All-in-all, Banned Footage Volume 1 is an interesting little package. You get a tense puzzle-focused escape room, a fun-as-heck action mode that I'm sure I'll be playing in the coming months, and a bastard-hard masochist-a-thon for those who want that. While I'm not a huge fan of Ethan Must Die, there'll be people out there who dig it, and those two tapes continue aspects of Resident Evil 7 that I'm hungry for. I hope Volume 2 has a similar value, and that the upcoming free DLC Not a Hero answers some burning questions I have from the game's ending.
Like matriarch Marguerite's dishes, bonus mode Ethan Must Die will prove an acquired taste, but the two other VHS tapes included with Banned Footage Vol. 1 are a delight. Nightmare serves up some surprisingly smart arcade action that fans missing Mercenaries will surely enjoy, while Bedroom is brilliant puzzle sequence that subverts the rules of the main game in order to create a real sense of tension without requiring any enemies at all. There's no question that had this content been incorporated into the main campaign it would have been an even stronger package overall, but as a standalone it's still easy to recommend.
A great return to the Baker Manor. Bedroom is the best section of this DLC by far, presenting an amazing puzzle with tense situations. Nightmare and Ethan Must Die are modes with more action that makes them a little more generic. If you enjoyed Resident Evil 7's main game, you should check this expansion.

Banned Footage Vol.1 is a good DLC, with three different modes: a great puzzle (Bedroom), a survival mode with a very interesting way to obtain items (Nightmare) and the very challenging Ethan Must Die with roguelike elements. The problem is the replay of this modes: Bedroom is short and does not provide entertainment after you know the puzzle, Nightmare is repetitive and Ethan Must Die is a random only with its items, and because of that it is not a true roguelike game.
