    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.

Из минусов могу выделить только дешёвые пугалки с вылетанием врагов из за углов. Сюжет довольно примитивный, но для игры сойдёт. Expand

    Despite my love for the old style games in this franchise and my suspiciouns about the changes I actually enjoyed this title.
    I have been dissapointed with RE ever since RE5 released. That game diluted the franchise, removed atmosphere and puzzles instead focuing on action. And then came RE6 wich was even worse and the god awful spinoffs.
    This game actually has atmosphere and again a throwback to playing smart and micromanage your inventory etc. It also modernised the combat and put you in a first person view although it is by no means a first person shooter.
    It is very different from previous RE titles and at times it seems this horror game is about the supernatural instead of the biological explanations that has always been there in RE games.

    Personally I'd prefer this game to be a spinoff of the main franchise rather than a numbered game in the franchise because it does differ ALOT from both those expecting something like the good old days RE1-4 and Code Veronica, and from those expecitng an action game like RE5-6. And I think alot of the dissapointment from the exaggerated scores of 0 and 1 comes from just that, it beeing to different from those games. And the tieins to the RE world and old games are very minor to be even worth mentioning.
    It is very similar to other horror titles available though. Particularly on pc, cues from the style of Amnesia and Outlast are obvious, only with combat added. But make no mistake, on it's own it IS good. And had it not been a RE game alot of the same people trashing it now would score it alot higher.

    I enjoyed it enough to play through it three times. My first on normal, my second on madhouse wich had shifted around enemies and items and my third as a speedrun on easy. Making a different choice in two of the playthroughs to se both endings.

    My main issues with this game are not enough varied enemies, choices that really only result in a very slight difference to the story and gameplay, even the endings are very similar aswell and very little tie in to RE world and previous games for it to be a numbered game in the franchise.

    Performance wise on my trusted soon 4yo rig, i7 4770K, 16GB RAM and GTX TITAN Black it ran at locked 60fps at maxed out 1080p. No drops whatsoever, no bugs and no crashes. I'd like a few more pc options but overall I'm very happy with the pc version of this game.

    If you love games like outlast, amnesia etc. and are not tired of them this game is for you. It adds combat but otherwise works in the same vein. If you are more into RE5-6 style gameplay, more into action than setting and "horror" then this is not for you.

The entire Baker's mansion is very well delivered but everything after that is bad written and just plain mediocre. You have only 3 monsters and 75% of the time is just one they use. History is short and really easy to understand even beffore they explain it to you (E-001) . I finished the game with TONS, TOOOONS of extra ammo. The final boss has no dificulty at all or strategy. They had so much potencial but they couldnt deliver for me. Game is not worth 60$ in its actual state, just wait a little longer and it might be worth it. Expand

So, in the beggining you cannot kill anything, they still surviving and trying to kill you. This annoying gameplay kills every well design aspect of the game. Atmosphere - 7/10, optimisation - 9/10, gameplay - 9/10. Overall 5-6/10. Don't cost this 60$ for the game. Expand
