    Resident Evil 7 is chock full of spectacular cinematic scenes, but what's the point of all that if they're hardly scary at all? Worse, some of them make you laugh.

  1. It’s the Baker family’s story and they’re magnificent. Grotesque, yes, but delightfully so. Like Friday the 13th, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street and the rest of their kind, it’s a game centred on its villains rather than their victims. And, like those series, this is a game that can scare you, startle you, shock you, draw a nervous laugh out of you and make you shake your head in disbelief, but mostly it’s just here to entertain. And the Bakers are right at the horrible heart of it all.

    I kind of liked it but I can't recommend it for $60. It's a breath of fresh air for the series but I think the game is a year or two late. ItI kind of liked it but I can't recommend it for $60. It's a breath of fresh air for the series but I think the game is a year or two late. It has a good atmosphere but so do a lot of $15-$30 horror/walking games on Steam. It adds little new to the table besides an alright (kind of slow/clunky at times) combat system. Had it been $30 I'd say go for it.
    However I'd recommend the game to anyone who has yet to play a fps-horror game that game out in the last 3 years (Layers of Fear comes to mind although it doesn't have combat).

    This product is as sophisticated as a barrel of methylated moonshine. Naturalistic, sadistic scenes, extreme violence, oceans of blood, heapsThis product is as sophisticated as a barrel of methylated moonshine. Naturalistic, sadistic scenes, extreme violence, oceans of blood, heaps dismembered human bodies nor perpetual darkness you stumble around in can really cover the fact that the game lacks substance, unlike Silent Hill series, Evil Within, or similar games of the genre.

    There is no psychological aspect of the story, no clever symbolism, no eerie atmosphere, and no memorable characters. There is only pointless struggle with enemies that are invulnerable until the plot says otherwise, everything is scripted and linear, and all the "difficulty" comes from clumsy tank-like gamepad controls that are defacto standard for console FPS games. You cannot properly aim with the gamepad, but if you opt for the mouse, it only mimics gamepad analog sticks, so you get a molasses-slow aiming with tons of lag as a bonus.

    If you like heaps of innards, livers, lungs, blood, cheap sadism and jumpscare scenes, then by all means go for it and buy the game. It's one of the few titles that made me physically nauseated, which is an unique achievement.

    If you seek something like Evil Within or Silent Hill, stay away, this game is as brainless as its characters.
