In an ideal world it all would’ve been included in the main game, but if you can get past that this is a great set of DLC extras.

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.

Capcom’s first stab at supporting Resi 7 post-launch is surprisingly diverse and easily worth the price of entry for anyone that enjoyed the core game. It’s clear that a lot of thought and consideration went into each individual part, instead of Capcom simply reworking Resident Evil 7 just enough to make its DLC feel fresh. With more banned footage in the pipeline for the middle of February, it will be interesting to see what new ideas they come up with in the next volume.

Although Bedroom is interesting, Nightmare and Ethan Must Die are nothing more than throwaway minigames, resulting in an underwhelming DLC pack that doesn’t live up to the Resident Evil name.
