Critic Reviews for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - End of Zoe
End Of Zoe takes place a little after Not A Hero and so is chronologically the final chapter of Resident Evil 7. We can safely that's not the way we thought it would end, but the fact that we can still be surprised by such a long-running series is one of the best things we can say about the game and its DLC.
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.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard's End of Zoe expansion offers the kind of tongue-in-cheek silliness only Capcom's survival horror franchise can provide. Played straight with some pretty serious stakes, the DLC still manages to be downright stupid all at the same time. It's a wonderful send-off for one of 2017's greats.
End of Zoe is a Resident Evil 7 gaiden that replaces guns with fists, herbs with bugs, and grenades with javelins. Becoming a bog frolicking ex-boxer uncle who fights monsters with his bare hands is precisely how I wanted to end 2017. End of Zoe is temporal, unhinged, and, either by intention or accident (it doesn't matter), often hilarious.
