Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - Not a Hero
Top Critic Average
We have to say we thoroughly enjoyed it, even if it does come across as slightly inconsequential.
It's been worth waiting so long for I'm not a hero, when, initially, it was going to be released last spring. The outcome of the plot is constituted as the best of the content, which sometimes blurs due to the occasions in which the gameplay is somewhat decaffeinated. All in all, it's worth being played, even more so being free.

Despite an excess of action, the final two DLC episodes feel like a love letter to both the original games and Resident Evil 7 itself. It answers almost every question asked, but leaves a couple unanswered, probably to keep RE8 a possibility.
No Hero and Zoe's End are fun, and if you have the season pass you will certainly not be bored, but otherwise you could also ignore them and continue to live "serene" and "quiet", closed in the Baker's mansion! .

Resident Evil 7's final round of DLC feels like a step backward. While both Not a Hero and End of Zoe are competently built, they replace the genuine horror and more nuanced characters of the main game with schlocky action and dumb wish fulfillment. The worst thing that can be said about Not a Hero and End of Zoe is that they leave me feeling uncertain about the future of the series. Let's hope Capcom hasn't already forgotten how to do Resident Evil right again.
It's hard to complain about an additional two hours of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard – especially when it's free. There's some fun lore for fans to soak up here, and some pretty tense scenarios, too. While it never really has anything to rival the main game's best bits, it's worth the bandwidth for Redfield's masterfully manicured mane alone.
Not A Hero absorbs Resident Evil 7's discordant third act and recasts it in the mold of a conventional action shooter. While a sharp focus (and a welcomed protagonist swap) aid Not A Hero's general coherence, it's a vision of a life the seventh Resident Evil chose to leave behind. A safe move isn't often the strongest.
Not a Hero and End of Zoe both offer different kinds of experiences than the base game, but if you're a fan of Resident Evil 7 or the series in general, you should definitely give them both a go.
Not A Hero is a free DLC that puts players back in the shoes of Resident Evil's Chris Redfield, but fails to live up to the quality of the main campaign. Despite this, Not A Hero is very much Resident Evil and provides an experience perfectly suited for Chris Redfield.
as a free expansion pack with almost 90 minutes of gameplay, Not a Hero could be a worthwhile experience, but it tells a story about a new Chris Redfield that has nothing alike to the Chris that we knew and loved before.
