    Resident Evil 7 feels like the interactive, dirty-secret bastard child of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes coupled with the series signature gameplay mechanics. A lean n' mean return to the essence of horror. Purists as well as series virgins will be enchanted. 2017’s first must play title.

    A terrifying survival horror experience. It offers the best spooky atmosphere in the franchise with many of the classic mechanics that built the original formula. Yet it has enough new elements to stand its ground amidst similar games. Without doubt, a must play horror experience.

    After the fifth and sixth games, the Resident Evil series was in dire need of a re-think. That’s exactly what Capcom have done, and they’ve done so in a way that’s braver, bolder, and more assured than I could ever have dreamed. They’ve refreshed the series for modern times, incorporating new techniques to ensure the horror is both sickening and chilling, while re-focusing the core structure around the things that made these games so great to begin with. The result is something that will almost certainly go down as a Resident Evil classic; a title that will be spoken about with reverence in the future, and an excellent turning point for the series as a whole. In those respects, Resident Evil 7 is the new Resident Evil 4.

    By wiping the slate clean and beginning again, Capcom have gained perspective. With Resident Evil 7, they’ve identified the core tenets of the franchise – the building blocks of terror that captivated and inspired a generation of fans and creators alike. The first-person perspective isn’t Resident Evil, but the feelings it elicits certainly are.

    Resivent Evil 7 revitalizes the series. Thanks to the first person view and the outstanding atmosphere it's a real highlight of the horror genre.

    The best Resident Evil game in years is only bogged down by the blatantly RE bits. [Issue#259, p.58]

    Resident Evil 7 has a strong opening, a sagging middle, and a disappointing finale. In other words, it hews closely to the arc of most horror. But to Capcom’s credit, this Resident Evil is taking pages from books it hasn’t previously read. I’m not convinced it understands those pages, but at least it’s attempting something other than the usual roiling mass of black goo with bright orange weak points you have to shoot. For a while at least. It’ll get to that. But before it plods through its sagging middle to its disappointing finale, Resident Evil 7 is at least trying.

    This is a true Resident Evil title and it's absolutely as good as the original trilogy if not better. Facts & arguments:

    + Survival-horror is actually back with a decent mix of action!
    + Item management is back as well. You need to carefully decide on which items you should at certain points.
    + The original level design (spooky mansions, underground passages, laboratories) and map interconnectivity (a very good one) is here.
    + After a long time, the puzzles are back! There could be more of them, but I was happy with what I've encountered, as they seemed really logically placed.
    + Story-line is still based on the same themes - bio viruses and secret organizations.
    + Classic RE weapons are present, bosses are cool - especially Jack - a video game manifestation of T-1000. The last boss could've been better, but it did not ruin the game experience in any way.
    + The enemies (despite the small variety) are challenging and terrifying, also the dismembering physics is a great add on.
    + The game has a big replayability factor with different modes (and a free story DLC coming up in Spring).

    In my book it was RE 3: Nemesis as the last true RE game, afterwards the series lost it's appeal as a survival horror game. Though RE 4 was a good action game, it was a big departure gameplay/story wise from the main series and could've been titled as a spin-off (if RE 5 hadn't come out). Resident Evil 7 is a great comeback, a true sequel to longtime RE fans. It's very immersive, really fun, hard (on mad house difficulty), it uses classic RE formula, but enhances it with it's modern changes (great engine, first person view, a new twist in the story). After I finished RE 7, I decided to revisit RE2 & RE3 (since I played the RE1 rewmake not so long ago) and now I'd even dare to say that this title can truly tie for being the best RE to date.

There are clear influences of the classics, such as, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Blair Witch and The Exorcist. But also uses a lot of psychological tension to build atmosphere, with great sound design always leaving you on edge. I recommend this game to all horror fans. . Expand

    Resident Evil is back! This game is wonderful and I enjoyed every second of it. It goes back to the roots of the resident evil franchise whereResident Evil is back! This game is wonderful and I enjoyed every second of it. It goes back to the roots of the resident evil franchise where its slow paced and full of scary moments. There are no spoilers just what i thought was good and bad.

    Pros:
    1. There are scary moments in the game that made me jump,
    2. Combat is good. Weapons are nice.
    3. Story was quite interesting doesn't really follow the other games so you can pick this one up and play it. 4. Boss fights were a fun experience.
    5. fun puzzles to solve throughout the game
    6. Game looks amazing and did not crash once

    Cons:
    1. Game was not as long as i would've like for the 60 dollar price tag it took me about 7-8 hours to beat it and that was me checking every inch of the map.
    2. Final boss is kind of easy.
    3. Not too many enemy types in this game. There is technically 4 bosses in the game and about 3-4 different types of enemies.
    4. Too many jump scares

    Resident evil 7 is not the best game I've ever played but its a step in the right direction for the franchise. The game was a lot of fun and I couldn't stop playing. I do feel the price tag is high for the amount of content you are getting. The game does rely on a lot of jump scares but I feel that the environment, music and slow pace really helps the game. This is just my opinion and some might disagree but I feel this game is worth a try when it drops down in price i feel like 30 dollars is a good deal for this game. I hope the resident evil franchise sticks to this formula and keeps improving with every new installment.

    Had to up my initial review rating from 2 to 6/10. I was very disappointed with their decision to force you to use AA on pc. On my giant 120"Had to up my initial review rating from 2 to 6/10. I was very disappointed with their decision to force you to use AA on pc. On my giant 120" screen with projector, the game was a blurry horrible mess that was giving me eyestrain headaches. I usually run no AA for a crisp clear image- until they come up with an AA option that completely eliminates aliasing (8k monitor anyone?) I dont see the point in these rubbish blur filters that make it a little less aliased at the cost of clarity and detail.
    After messing with the resolution multiplier though, running at 1.9 times the resolution gave me a much cleaner image, and I was able to play through the game and found the gameplay quite enjoyable.
    If it had the option to turn off antialiasing and use a 104degree FOV i would have given it an 8/10.
