    Don't listen the people who didn't even played the game and came just to hate. RE 7 is no walk simulator, and no P.t clone. RE 7 is an horror game with action just like every classical RE, with a real Survival Horror mechanics and feel to it.

    Gone are the QTE, corridor shooter and boring action. RE 7 brought back the sense of mystery and dread , exploration and overall feel of the original game. I may being repetitive, but I don't want to spoiler the game, I think every Resident Evil fan deserve to discovery how this game bring back the sensation and awe that Resident Evil brought in 96.

    RE 7 is a masterpiece, it bring back the original feel and moves the series further into the survival horror genre. I really looking forward for RE 8.

    After all said and done, 7 maybe is the best Resident Evil ever, or a close runner up for the original RE.

    If you are a fan, forget the haters, forget the hate and prejudice and give it a try, I assure you it really worth.

The evil within tried this but it ultimately failed. I have not tried this in VR but If i did im sure I would of pooped my pants a few times. This isn't a flawless game tho, It does have its issues. Enemy variety would of been great other than the main villains themselves. Also for those who say this too short of game for a full retail price just take a look at RE2 or 3.. you can complete those games in less than 3 hours each if you really try. Go out and play this game! Capcom deserves your money for their attention to detail, story and scares alone! 9/10 Expand

Gráficamente es bastante fotorealista y en alto/muy alto se disfruta mucho (visualmente hablando). Claramente lo he jugado en PC, no puedo opinar con respecto las versiones de consola. Por último, en cuanto a la duración del mismo, a mi me ha durado en "normal" (en una primer vuelta no puedes elegir la dificultad más elevada, si no que se te desbloquea al terminar la primera vez) exactamente 9 horas y 31 minutos, osea que no está mal para un videojuego de estas características... Si le tengo que poner alguna pega, y de ahí el 8, serían los cuelgues y ralentizaciones que sufre en ocasiones (sin necesidad), el que haya muy poca variedad de monstruos y el que cuando corres, no sé, si mi vida dependiera de ello, os aseguro que correría mucho más que el protagonista, porque telita... Resumiendo: es un buen título, es un buen survival horror, y personalmente, es el reinicio que necesitaba la saga. Expand

    Debo admitir que no confiaba en el juego debido a los grandes cambios que se le habían hecho con respecto a otras entregas pero me ha sorprendido gratamente haberme encontrado con un DIGNO merecedor de llamarse Resident Evil y entrar en la saga principal y no como un simple Spin Off.

Tiene todos los elementos de la saga, comenzando con el más básico de todos: la ambientación del juego en general acompañada con una banda sonora, si bien no magnífica, acorde a lo que sucede en torno al título. En ningún momento pude sentirme relajado, a pesar de que no hubiese nadie en la misma habitación donde me encontraba y no sentía eso desde los primeros juegos (compréndase RE 0, 1, 2 y 3). Si bien el juego no destaca por su historia, allí está y está bien lograda, exceptuando algunos casos pero dentro de todo está bien. Otro elemento clásico de la saga, también presente en este título es la existencia de una corporación "X" que desarrolla un virus y que planea utilizarlo como armamento militar, esto deriva en la creación de las conocidas B.O.W (aunque no son zombies, hay BioArmas y eso es lo importante) que, a pesar de ser un único tipo y no haber muchas variantes entre estas, están introducidas correctamente en el juego. La gestión clásica del inventario hace presencia nuevamente para ponerlos en situaciones de peligro la mayoría de las veces. Tenemos que ser muy cuidadosos con lo que guardamos en el inventario ya que contaremos con un espacio reducido para guardar objetos (aunque no tan reducido como los primeros juegos) y posteriormente podremos aumentar esos espacios dándonos un abanico de posibilidades dentro del inventario como pasaba por ejemplo con Resident Evil 4. Los jefes y enemigos están puestos en lugares específicos dispuestos a hacerte la vida imposible y no siempre podrás usar la fuerza bruta con ellos yendo con tus armas dispuesto a disparar sino que en ocasiones tendrás que pensar un poco y evadir el peligro. Las armas y los objetos que están dispersados a lo largo y ancho del mapa también son algo que destacar, hay variedad de armas y todas son obtenibles para usar en el momento que uno quiera, pero claro, tendrás que administrar tus recursos y a veces dejar algún arma para conservar otra y para eso están los clásicos Baúles, que nos permiten alojar objetos en él con la intención de liberar espacio en nuestro inventario pero sin perder el objeto en cuestión (ya que al descartar un objeto ya no puede recuperarse). Las balas, los elementos de curación y otros objetos varios serán de vital importancia para el desarrollo del juego. Si bien no escasean las balas, tampoco abundan, es como un balance bien logrado entre los primeros juegos y los últimos, quedándose en el medio en lo que a munición se refiere. Cuando nos sobren las balas podremos estar tranquilos y darnos el lujo de gastarlas porque aparecerán más, cuando estamos con la cantidad justa de balas, lo más conveniente es hacer que cada disparo cuente. Todos estos, entre otros, hacen de este título un digno merecedor del nombre y del legado de la saga. Si hay detalles a mencionar que no están buenos, como por ejemplo que hay un momento en particular donde la historia da un giro radical y cambia todo lo que conocíamos y eso se siente bastante forzado, también el hecho de que para los gráficos que tiene no es un juego que valga la pena por 60 dólares y el hecho más molesto del juego es que los dlc que vienen en el season pass no vengan incluidos en el juego, si bien el juego no depende de estos dlcs porque el juego SI está completo, hubiera sido bueno que los dlcs los incluyeran en la versión final y no tener que pagar 30 dólares más por el Season Pass solo por 3 dlcs que no aportan gran cosa a lo visto anteriormente, en este sentido creo que el golpe de efecto lo dará el dlc gratuito "Not a Hero" ya que presume continuar lo que sería la historia principal comenzando desde el final del juego mismo (hablaré de él cuando salga y del 3er dlc del Season Pass también). Y por último, pero no menos importante... Es un juego muy corto para personas acostumbradas al género. Que quiero decir con esto? una persona promedio, que no juega demasiado este tipo de juegos, puede demorar entre 8 y 13 horas en terminarlo, lo cual es un tiempo bastante decente para un título como este. Pero si por el contrario, ya se tiene experiencia en juegos así, entonces perfectamente el juego se puede terminar en 4 horas o menos dando por resultado un juego corto para usuarios experimentados en el género, hubiera estado mejor si hubiera sido más largo, pero creo que está bastante bien. En un todo el juego está muy bien pero esos puntos hacen que mi calificación no sea perfecta. Quiero destacar que este Análisis lo hago después de haber pasado el juego en las 3 dificultades disponibles, además de haber jugado los 2 dlcs salidos al día de hoy que son Banned Footage Vol 1 y Banned Footage Vol2.

    Resident Evil 7 - a nice update of the series. The sixth part finally turned into a stupid action, revelations and revelations 2 was a good branches, and I enjoyed playing in them, waiting here. But resident evil has become monotonous and dull, to scare us long ceased. Resident Evil 7 was a new look to the series.
    Don't know whether it was necessary to attribute the number 7, because the game is not related to the series (behind small exceptions). The game could be the next spin-off, but Capcom decided to emphasize the importance of this game. Let's be honest - the first-person view, the developers certainly made for VR. Well, okay, the more the mansion is much nicer to explore in the first person: you can carefully examine all, and to literally feel yourself in the shoes of Ethan - graphics in this game are extremely good, and the VR effect of immersion increase, so the first person can be forgiven.
    Types of enemies are few, they are in essence 2 kinds: pleskavica and the Bakers, insects too, but they do not want for enemies to count. Plesnevyj 4 types: regular, long arm, blade, fast and puking. Diversity there are no enemies at all. Where are the least dogs? From the Bakers I liked Jack - it is a colorful boss, a real maniac. His wife me no problems at all, delivered, and location with it is extremely easy. Their son is even worse - shoot bombs and solve puzzles. Yes, in this game the enemies are not very specified. Many claim that zombies do not exist. Well, they are with us long gone. 4 parts were parasites, revelations 1-2 is also not a zombie.
    Puzzles... We all remember the demo beginning hour with the cassette and different puzzles. Nothing like that in the game there. Easier puzzles I have not seen. And magazines is very small, I thought they were going to play a big role, or will have to know the background (Yes, we just get previous events, but this is not enough).
    Resident Evil 7 not Outlast, we here give enough to shoot, and we hide only in the first third of the game. The last third of the fully action - it's not what you would expect. For me, the best part of the game - before leaving the house with three goals. Then not so scared for his life, although the atmosphere remains. It is a pity that the developers again decided that once the game is in first person, it is possible not to prescribe the main character, because the player will be easier with him associated. And we got a little emotional Ethan: cut off the hand, whatever, this every day; cut down leg - don't care; wife crazy - 4ack. Yeah, he's not the most silent, and sometimes says something, but not enough.
    Resident Evil 7 will make you survive, to scare would be, too, but mostly Boo moments. The game is very atmospheric, even when there are no enemies, you're still scared by different sounds, and the unknown dark passage ahead. The game keeps the tension, though by the end you will run and shoot all at times two. The game should have ended on the departure of Ethan with his wife (or her), or add more of the same frightening and atmospheric moments as before. But after the blame game don't want to, I want to go again the atmospheric part of the house. Recommend to beat the game is the best survival horror in recent years, soak up the atmosphere, slowly explore the house, this is not the same resident evil, but give him a chance.

    Story is very ok, just a little lightweight, but fully enough. Presentation is great. Some puzzles were mixed in. The whole game seems to be deliberately cut in quantity, but upped in quality, which I think is a great direction. A bit more variety and length, but less horror would have suited me more (that would be some Resident Evil 4 - 2 then), but this was really something worth playing for once again.

    It didn't have the sheer terror factor that say, Silent Hill Shattered Memories had on me, with faceless goons chasing you through seemingly endless labyrinths. This is more of an acceptable, typical exploration, loot, and escape game. I don't think there was ever a point where I didn't want to go forward because I was too afraid, it keeps the scares tame, and the action and tension high. Gore plays a part, but it's well placed in a way to show you how savage the bakers are, and to establish exactly what will happen when they catch you.

    The scares don't come from Jump Scares and extreme gore, as many others have said, but actually from nuanced sound effects, and the unexpected placement of the baker family. You never know when you turn a corner whether you're going to meet Mad Jack, the invulnerable farm-dad with his big old pitchfork, or Marguerite, the lantern carrying cockroach vomiting bug woman, or your psycho ass girlfriend.

    You'll be creeping along hoping none of the baker's hear you, when the floorboards will creak, or a window will rattle at you. Most of the time, but not always, it's nothing but the wind, but it keeps you on edge regardless.

    The plot feels like it could have used more work, given as the majority of it is explained in a number of books near the end of the game, instead of learned throughout. Some characters, such as Zoe, also feel shoehorned in just to give the player a purpose to "go forward". It's also inconsistent in it's storytelling, noting at one point that "you can't cure them because the infection has been in them for too long", while in the DLC you realise that the person who "can" be cured, was infected the very same day.

    Overall though, a lacking plot and Zoe aside, the game fluidly transitions from an alien isolation style escape game into a call of duty shooter, with the theme of the Evil Dead heavily worked in. It's a great play, and easy to stay engaged in from the very start to the very finish.

    Not a must-play, but certainly a good few hours of enjoyable house-escape nonsense.

    I'm surprised with the voice acting, i really liked it, especially Jack and Marguerite. Really good stuff.
    There's an awesome Chainsaw Massacre and a bit of a True Detective feel in this game. Maybe because of the dark and creepy atmosphere.

    I'm very satisfied with what they have accomplished, it would be great if they keep going this way, but i hope RE 2 Remake remains intact.

    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.

    *Pros

    - The game gives you the illusion of safety through high ammo counts, but as soon as Jack or the molded enemies appear, you go through ammo so fast without even realizing it, leading you to helplessly run or stand your ground, pull out your knife, and do it the old fashioned way.

    - Puzzles are back, and although most are not nearly as complex as previous examples, they are always satisfying to solve and never make you feel dumb or frustrated.

    - Jack, the "daddy" of the family, is one scary ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. He's relentless, and doesn't let up unless you cap him in the head a few times, or in the body multiple times. His dialogue is great, and sometimes even lessens the tension with his humor, before he smacks you with his shovel to get you serious again. He's unpredictable, and isn't just out to kill you, but taunt and toy with you as well.

    - Detail inside of the house is beautifully horrifying, from it's hallways covered in mold to it's dinner tables covered in entrails, the Baker house is always keeping you on the edge of your seat.

    - Plenty of collectibles to find during your journey, and some of them reward you greatly if you can find enough! Also, lockpicks are a big part in this game, but are very limited. So you need to pick and choose what you decide to unlock. You usually end up in a situation where there are 3 things you need to unlock, but you only have one lockpick.

    - PC optimization is great! Plenty of graphics options, uncapped framerate, Gsync support for the real enlightened PC gamers out there, as well as resolutions up to 4K and HBAO+ AO for Nvidia users.

    *Cons

    - Some character models kind of look odd. Something about Marguerite Baker in particular just looks out of place. Her face looks like shes had 500 plastic surgeries done and it's just ugly to look at. I'm not sure if that's what they were going for, but I wish it was a little better.

    - Sometimes it's just TOO ♥♥♥♥ing dark. Like I want to play on the recommended brightness, but it makes item discovery 10x harder when you can barely see. I don't know why the flashlight is something only the game can turn on instead of something you can turn on and off whenever you please.

    - There are some textures that really look awful. I thought the PC version would alleviate this, but a PC can only put as much effort in as the developers did. Still better on PC with high refresh rates, game runs like butter.

    Overall, I am totally LOVING this game so far. I think it's absolutely phenomenal and worth every penny. Please don't hold out and risk getting spoiled! If you're interested, buy it now.

    5 hours in, Resident Evil VII is a clear 10/10 for me. Here's to hoping something further down the line won't ruin that for me.

    The true fan will enjoy this. It's truly atmospheric and still engaging. I recommend you play the demo several times over. There is a multitude of endings and clearly shows a less linear path. You won't be disappointed with the results.

    This game is a fantastic revitalization of Resident Evil. The plot isn't terribly deep, and the protagonist is forgettable, but what Resident Evil game is known for its deep and intricate plot?

    The gameplay is a nice mix of old and new, the modernized but slightly clunky controls recreate the feeling of days of old, only instead of using tank controls to create tension, it uses a limited field of vision and inaccurate aiming. Every enemy is a threat, even when there's only one of them. They never get de-valued. You never feel like some superhuman.

    They also kept the intricate environment exploration and unique puzzle solving, as well as adding unique and memorable villains, and at no point does the game feel like it's getting repetitive.

    People complain about how short it is, but the game lasts about 10 hours, and that's about the average length of any normal game. Besides, I would take a 10 hour game with no filler over a 70 hour game stuffed with filler any day.

    RE7 is a Resident Evil game through and through, and a fantastic one at that. It deserves a spot among REmake and RE4.

    This game is great. Great controls, great atmosphere, and a return to the classic RE survival horror style. You find yourself in a claustrophobic area with limited ammo or resources to survive, just the way it used to be and that's fantastic. While this isn't a perfect game, and certainly not the best Resident Evil ever, it's still a great game.

    I know there are some people out there who can't judge a game for what it is and instead hate it for what it's not, and that's pretty sad. You have to ignore the sense of entitlement from some gamers. I'm not sure why people want more of the same, especially since Resident Evil was going down the toilet for years. This is a great direction for the series. It isn't the first time Resident Evil went first person (that honor goes to "Survivor" on PS One), so it isn't like it's some bold new experiment. Just a step in the right direction the series desperately needed.

    Resident Evil 7 takes from some of the best horror movies and places you right in the centre. 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. .

    + 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.

    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.

Since you're actually controlling the character, the horror produced by games always beat the most intense movie for me. Since RE:1 few games have recreated that level of dread. Outlast and Layers of Fear did great jobs of creating that same experience. However, they both had much smaller budgets than RE7. So Capcom has made a highly polished gem of horror and fear. They have created a game that is difficult but not unfair with a great plot and fun play mechanics. The fact that your character is not a special forces soldier or even a cop, means that you spend as much time hiding and planning your next move, as you do shooting or hacking at the enemy. Also, the relate-ability of the character to non-combat trained people adds to sense of fear through familiarity. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 10/10 is some of the boss battles didn't fit with the feeling and theme of the overall game. Expand

The visual jump scares seldom feel cheap in part due to the masterful sound design. Making people jump isn’t a difficult task. However, making people terrified to progress the plot is a daunting task to pull off. Resident Evil 7 absolutely succeeds in pulling off what developer/publisher Capcom set out to accomplish. After the failure of RE6, the need for the series to return to the survival horror genre became clear. Horror is all about maintaining an atmosphere. Walking down a corridor, Ethan Winter (the surrogate for the player) might hear some variety of crash off in the next room or in the room above. The mansion is lived in (a slightly inaccurate phrase) and a sense of foreboding never escapes the player except for around the ending. The sound design mixed in with phenomenal limited lighting merge in encouraging the player never be overconfident in a given environment. Unlike previous entries, the locations are realistically scaled down. The Baker homestead never features a room or ground that feels out of place. In other words, the property is very much one might find in reality. Conversely, the game’s need to feature a puzzle at every turn suspends belief every once in awhile. In the end, the limited environmental scope aids in augmenting the horror. The developers painstakingly created the home to a disturbing degree. Every nook and cranny of the home serve a purpose in telling the Baker family’s story. The player is rewarded at great cost for exploring the environment. In addition, the exploration feeds into a very enjoyable item management system. All of the items encountered are useful. In order to make backpack space, the player has to really decide what is the most useful item in a given situation. Looking through your inventory doesn’t stop the game time. You could be looking at the very low ammo of a given gun and suddenly come under attack. In most fights, the best solution is often to run away until a more advantageous moment. The narrative lasts little more than ten hours. The duration of the experience ensures the plot never drags or overstays its welcome. The mysteries of the circumstances surrounding Ethan Walker are more than enough to ensure the player fights their fear. The player won’t be able to stop themselves from enjoying their twisted adventure with the Baker family. The PC version is optimized. Expand

From experience it seems there's always people out there to slam games or give them a perfect 10 just to offset the medium. But I wanted to write a review directed at true RE fans and those who appreciate a good single player game. Do not listen to the people who gave this gaming review of zero or just flat-out hated on it, I understand some people don't enjoy the games as much as others but if you like Resident Evil and like a good horror and survival game you will not be disappointed. Something this game had that the others didn't was the aspect of someone following you around the house with more intelligence then a zombie who might break down a door once in awhile but stays the exact same hallway for the rest of the game. This game is much different then some of the Resident Evil titles but I would recommend this as a bye to anyone who appreciates the genre. Ensure any game can have someone speed run through it and beat it in a couple hours but the atmosphere and the richness of the environment made this supposed 10 to 12 hour game last almost 20 for me. I know others will say different about the time but I was almost hesitant to buy this game after seeing some of the negative reviews on Metacritic and I'm very glad I didn't listen to them.

I was a bit skeptic at first when i heard they made the switch to first person but also enthousiastic to hear they would bring the series back to it's roots with a focus on survival horror.

    So when i got the game i went in with an open mind and tempered expectations, but that very quickly changed into pure pleasure and immersion in the game. The story unfolds slowly and it's not till halfway trough the game you'll get that old "Umbrella done messed up vibe". But the story is fascinating and the atmosphere, although not horribly frightening, is just spot on.

    The gameplay is solid and the first person view works very well. You do get weapons and ammunition but unless you are fighting the weaker enemies you don't feel like they give you any sort of advantage. Shooting the bakers just pisses them off.
    The audio is very good and the voice acting is probably the best in the series so far. The graphics are decent, not amazing, but very well made to fit the setting and atmosphere of the game. And if you're lucky enough to have a pc that runs this on 4k 60fps and ultra settings you will get a rather great visual experience. Just be aware that this requires a machine way more powerfull than the recommended specs.

    So in the end this game has been worth every penny so far. I've put 40 hours into it on my first week and there will be plenty of both free and paid DLC to come. So if you're a fan of the early games you'll love this, if you like survival horror and want a well worked out game with good story and lots of lore to find, you'll have a great time. If most of your time is spent in games like CoD or WoW or any of the mainly multiplayer focussed games you may not like this as much.
    This is a story rich game with alot of exploration and solving puzzles. So you won't be running around guns blazing.

    Resident Evil 7 is an instant CLASSIC. A true Resident Evil game that strikes an incredible balance between what the series has been always known for and its imperative job to evolve, be new and fresh.

    Since the reveal of RE7, countless misperceptions have stumbled upon its way, from being an Outlast clone, to PT’s biggest fan. Capcom maintained a strict marketing approach for RE7 making sure that nobody can expect and predict much of the game which eventually has favored RE7 in every aspect. You’re going to be so surprised of how much they’ve hidden and you will realize how hilarious Outlast/PT comparisons actually sound like.

    RE’s soul seeps through the walls of RE7; it stays true to its roots -- delicately re-introducing and invigorating the franchise which defined survival horror games for years to come. What RE7 does best is that it comes up with this amazing, refining and unique formula of visualizing and catching the classical vibes of the old RE/survival horror games and mixing them all up perfectly with new refreshing stuff that will open up new horizons for the series.

    At its core, it’s a game that was built with effort, quality and passion. Everything about RE7 in terms of story, characters, enemies, atmosphere, environments, graphics, sound design, gameplay elements… etc. It all connects, mashes-up and intertwines incredibly and meaningfully well together in a way that just made me feel like this is one of the smartest, most beautifully done survival horror games I’ve played this generation.

    RE7 offers a fantastic and immersive experience that will make you hold on to your controller from beginning to end through a suspenseful new story, interesting characters, intense atmosphere, stunning details, insane sound design, great combat/gunplay, engaging item management, puzzles, exploration, backtracking and replayability.

    Pros:
    + Excellent storytelling and strong narrative
    + Playable flashbacks allowing for gameplay variety
    + Beautifully done and a well-balanced RE/survival horror game
    + Sheer amount of visual fidelity and gorgeous presentation
    + Insane sound design with wonderful soundtracks
    + Engaging combat, gunplay, item management, puzzles, exploration and backtracking
    + Emergent game design: certain scenarios vary depending on how you play
    + Good replay value

    Resident Evil 7 is a first person survival horror game where you play as a character named Ethan who gets a video from his wife who was kidnapped while babysitting
    this leads him to an old house out in the swamps of Louisiana
    As you explore this house and find its hidden passage ways you learn you’re not alone here…
    Tons of missing person cases around this time, but maybe this is just a coincidence
    There’s a crazy family…
    And you spend the game dealing with this family and trying to rescue and escape with your wife
    This is hands down the most terrifying video game I’ve ever played…
    And I don’t scare easy…
    Usually games only get me with cheap jump scares..
    I don’t ever expect more than that...
    Again I’m no Pewdiepie…
    But here I was genuinely terrified to progress during the first half of the game…
    The characters and setting are so eerie…
    you feel vulnerable throughout as you search the areas for keys and other items to solve a simple puzzle and move on…
    Even during moments of back tracking it never gets easier…
    each location feels just as terrifying as before…
    And you’re not even defenseless…
    You have a knife... you can pick up guns and other items to craft health packs and better ammo…
    but even with all of this you can’t help but feel your life is on the line around every corner…
    Where the game starts to fall apart is when they introduce the mud/mold type enemies that come out of the walls…
    they’re definitely terrifying at first… but only because they’re new…
    But they’re so over used that they quickly become an eye roll rather than a scare…. They eventually pose no threat…
    The game would’ve greatly benefitted from sticking to the style of focusing on 1 unique characters per section of the game like the first half instead of throwing in these generic monsters around every corner to deal with…
    They broke the experience immersion for me and reminded me this was a video game..
    And the games reliance on these enemies is worse as it goes on that by time I was in the final 3 hour stretch of this 7 and a half hour game I was running through them and the rest of the game like it was nothing… thankfully the final 20 minutes or so bring the game back to what it does best…
    But these putty creatures plucked from the power rangers are a joke.
    They’re a slight hiccup in the overall fantastically horrifying experience that is resident evil 7 though…
    The game is so clever with its puzzles, even doing subtle things like putting solutions or important item locations in these vhs tapes where you play as other characters.. these vhs tapes are just as terrifying as the main game, if not more at times…
    And you never feel stuck… again I beat the game in 7 and a half hours and I was very thorough…
    the game does a great job of bread crumb trailing you to the right items you need..
    Resident Evil 7 is also compatible with the PlayStation vr... which im sure makes this game even more terrifying...
    unfortunately this does get in the way of the game itself for those of us not using vr as theres this weird directional audio thing going on where you have to look at a character to really hear what they’re saying…
    That isn’t how real life works and its annoying.. .
    So for better and for worse, this game was definitely developed with vr in mind… it wasn’t an afterthought or an added gimmick…
    Resident evil 7 stumbles at times stopping it from being crowned as a true masterpiece…
    But I can’t look over the moments that bring it so close to that status…
    I can’t look over the fact that im one of the most unphased by horror people I know.. And this game got to me.
    This is hands down the best horror games I’ve ever played…

I don't like games with a short story line and i had 3 moments in the game i thought i already finished it, but there was more and more and more to the story and that really surprised me. I was really skeptical about this game but it exceeded all my expectations.

    I've played: Silent Hill series, Resident Evil series, Evil Within and F.E.A.R series.

    Me ha sorprendido muy gratamente. No me esperaba que siendo en primera persona estuviera a la altura pero finalmente creo que ha cumplido. Eso sí, es bastante corto y con tramos irregulares. Si dejamos eso a un lado la ambientación y sonido de 10. Aunque sea un juego de terror no "da" demasiado miedo. Lo cual no es malo del todo, pues gracias a eso ha llegado a más personas.

Crazy nostalgic holdings is how America elected dicknugget Trump as their president.

    Now for the actual review, the game is very atmospheric, which is why the introduction of the first FPS game in the series is a welcome boon. The enemies are well developed, and even if subjecting the whole state of Louisiana to a awful stereotype, the backwards hill-billies pictured are a work of fiction, and not well ;).

    I can see the obvious links between other puzzle horror games recently (Outlast, Amnesia etc.) however this game breaks the pattern by allowing actual combat, AS WELL AS PUZZLES. The first boss fight had me frantically flaying around for a solution and laughing my ass off for the better part of an hour. It isn't as straight forward as some are suggesting, and really makes you think outside the box.

    The only problem I would have with this game is the underwhelming ending and the length of the game, but overall I have thoroughly enjoyed the game

    The riddles could be better but man I liked them because games have become so damn easy these days! The safe room is back along the claustrophobic atmosphere that made fall in love with the first three games!

    The characters are fine, and the story is good enough to keep you going and I have to mention that the second act could be better than it was... still okay, though; with some clichè here and there that kind of resemble some other games that this one is inspired of. I actually liked it :)

    Can't wait to see what happens with the franchise after this hell of a game! The PC version had some frame rate drops but they didn't bother me as much; the game was playable through all parts with no crashing.

    A huge gamble that paid off big time, I can honestly say this is the best Resident Evil game I have ever played. The switch to first person was controversial but at least in my opinion a complete success, it just works so well and I hope the devs stick with it for all future games.

    A huge gamble that paid off big time, I can honestly say this is the best Resident Evil game I have ever played. The switch to first person was controversial but at least in my opinion a complete success, it just works so well and I hope the devs stick with it for all future games.

    The whole game feels quality from top to bottom, from the visuals to the audio to the gameplay itself, nothing felt rushed and it all came together to make a brilliant game that I can't recommend enough. The atmosphere throughout was chilling and scary at times but not overly so, don't be put off if you consider yourself a bit of a wimp when it comes to horror titles (I do and I still loved it), I was also pleased that jump scares weren't overly used but when they were I definitely felt my heart rate speed up.

    I will mention one negative and that's VRAM usage, the game uses an absolutely absurd amount, you will need a 6GB GPU for high textures and a 8GB GPU for very high, leaving those of us with the ever popular GTX 970 with medium textures, now, this isn't as bad as it sounds as the texture quality setting doesn't actually affect the quality of the textures like in almost every other game, instead it affects texture caching, on medium you will see some rare texture pop-in whereas on higher settings you won't, the textures themselves are the same. If you try to play on high or very high with a 4GB GPU you will experience hitching and almost constant frame rate drops once you leave the initial area so make sure you turn this setting down if you're using a 4GB card like myself.

    +There are many nods to the classic Resident evil 1-3 in this game.
    +A step forward from re6, not backwards.
    +Ammo felt sparse in hardest difficulty giving that OS moment when they hand you a ton bullets and you know something nasty is around the corner.
    +Inventory space management is very similar to old resident evils. You have to decide which items stay in your inventory and what need to be saved in the classic themed "safe rooms chests."
    +Use of combining and examine was executed perfectly.
    +Plenty of panic moments to try to bait you into eating your bullets up.
    +Items were actually very well hidden, i'm sure without the a certain item in the game I would have missed some items hiding in dark corners. Maybe could have decreased the duration of those, and made them more rare as a craft only item so you have to waste potential items which could have been used on health/ammo so decision making is required.

    Cons:
    (-1 point) -Game was very short, but given the fact most of the time was spent working on a new framework, that is common in game development. Whichever comes first, I expect Re8 or Re2 Remake to be much longer using this framework. If the next game isn't longer, you'll get more than 1 point knocked off my review for that game. 17 hours should be how long i'm stuck on a single puzzle, not how long it takes to complete the game.
    (-1 point) - AI needs some major improvement. Monsters kept running into doors and got stuck in the corner allowing you to just go up and kill them without them moving. The second boss encounter required no skill at all and was not enjoyable for me. That cliche item should not have been usable in that boss fight. Make me waste my ammo and run out if i screw up instead.

    -WHERE'S THE TYPEWRITER? Typewriter was iconic and should have been used to be able to save. I'm sure most of the people playing this game have used one before and it doesn't need to be modernized to a tape recorder to appeal to younger audience.
    -No VR support.
    - Fix the lip sync, 144hz 1440p with adjusted settings caused audio desynch even when frames were optimal. Finally managed to fix with bloom settings.
    -Textures. The game looks really good in 1440p, but certain things were very noticeable when you used a low res door or a low res picture hanging in the hallway. Even the leaves on the stairs right, on the ground outside the 3dog looked bad to me. Give me a slider in the next game where I can adjust those setting.
    -Stagger. More stagger! What happened to trial and error on where the hit spot is on enemies?
    - Secrets were too easy and there weren't enough puzzles to make it challenging. When I think of RE I think, tough puzzles while danger lurks around the other corner. Not once did i have pressure to hide from an enemy while doing a puzzle.
    - Really felt like the hardest difficulty needed to be unlocked already and a middle ground between that and normal needed to exist.

    Overall, if you are a fan of the classic resident evils and need a game to beat over the weekend, this game is worth purchasing right away if you can't wait. I don't feel like it was worth $60 due to it's length, but didn't want to wait for a sale.

    This is without a doubt the change the franchise needed, the first person view felt weird at first, but it becomes way more inmersive as the movement is more fluid (you can turn around 180º pressing x, so it is smooth enough not to make the whole movement with your mouse a pain in the ass)

    Puzzles are fun and well though, the Baker Mansion feels so much bigger than what you think at

    Puzzles are fun and well though, the Baker Mansion feels so much bigger than what you think at first, and the level design makes every room connect in a clever way, enemy variety is good and the game itself is scarier than ever.

    The game isn't very long (7-8 hours) and isn't very challenging (i don't really see this as a flaw, it would be weird if i had a jumpscare replay for the fifth time i die trying to beat a boss)

    There are some clear references to other games and earlier titles in this franchise, so that's a nice adding,
    Overall i would really recommend this to everyone, fan of RE or not

In the story you are Ethan Winters, whose wife has been missing for 3 years and finally contacts him asking him to come and get her. The story feels strong at first but starts to feel weaker at the end because of lack of information.
    Basic enemies are slime monsters, and after awhile you will know when you can expect to see them. But the real enemy is Baker's family: Jack, Marguerite, and Lucas. All of them have unique fighting styles, which I'm not going to spoil. The whole story takes about 8-10 hours the first time, but it does have replay value. After finishing the story you feel like you've survived true horror.
    I recommend you play this on madhouse difficulty. Then it really feels like a classic Resident Evil game, because you have a limited amount of cassette tapes that you can use to save a game. And if you die you return to the last cassette player. Ammo and heal items are very limited. As a long time Resident Evil fan I'm happy to see that Capcom did a good job on this game. I just wish part of the story wouldn't be DLC, which ruins some of the experience.
    Overall the controls and the story are good, and it really feels like good old Resident Evil. If you are a horror game fan I can say it's worth buying. I give this game 8/10.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Resident Evil 7 was a nice comeback to the series. It's not the best but that sensation of classic Resident Evil was still there but now in first person.
    It's not the best RE game but it's definitely worth checking out. Capcom tried something new and I really liked it for what it was especially coming off of the painful RE6. I had more laughs than scares though.

    The only part I didn't like was the final two hours where it turned into an action game rather than conserving weapons and ammo. (The boat)

    A good mix of old school and modern mixed together. Could've been more better though. Overall its good.

    Меня больше пугали монстры не своим видом или появлением, а тем что погибнув придется опять еле-еле тащится до них. В этом плане игра даже немного надоедает..
    Плосковато.

    Как и характеры героев. Понятно ведь это не РПГ, но простой цивил попал в Дом кошмаров, а он ноль эмоций. Кроме ответа на "Groovy" мистера Бейкера "нет, это не круто" и вспомнить нечего.

    Понравился геймплей и подача сюжетной линии.
    Игра не успевает надоедать, постоянно изменяя саму себя. От хоррора к шутеру переход не заметен и плавен, но судя по всему ставку на сам хоррор не было. Иначе ее бы точно можно было обвинить в аутластозависимости.
    А так мне не показалось, что капком слишком много заимствовал у Аутласт.
    Технически не вызвала нареканий лично у меня на высоких от 100 фпс и судя по всем отзывам большинство проблем возникло у владельцев продукции от амд.
    Таковы реалии рынка. С кем разработчик сотрудничает, те системы и в приоритете.

    В общем и целом история о влиянии мутированных грибов на семейства реднеков, вышла на твердый середняк и является отличным открытием нового игрового года среди крупных проектов.

    RE7 feels to me like Capcom wanted to combine all kinds of horror themes into one and strangely it all works together. Paying homage to its roots and pushing the once-beloved survival horror forward again was Capcom's goal, and in my eyes they nailed it.

    People who reviewed and criticised its lack of connection to the RE franchise and no recurring characters have not finished the game. The last fourth or so is like Resident Evil 4/5 on steroids (quite literally) and it's a blast. But I also enjoyed slower pace of the first half, which is more like Outlast than your traditional RE.

    Anyhow, finished the game, loved it, will definitely play it again a couple times, 10/10. It might be my second favourite RE game now after RE2 Remake :)

    A return to form for the series, going back to the slower pacing and survival horror roots that made the franchise. Great atmosphere and story, the setting really pulls you in. Enemies were lacking a little variety though and puzzles not as frequent as you'd expect. Still very much worth playing.

    In short, this game is a new way to experience Resident Evil so it was to be expected that many fans would resent the old style being changed. However changes can in some cases still be very good in order to give players new ways of interacting with the story. The good thing about this story is that you don't need to know the previous stories which have been told since Resident Evil 1. The gameplay has been fully made first person and the story has been written in chapters that will be done seperately throughout the entire game. The game takes approximately 4 hours (speed run) to complete, however you can easily double that amount and then some if you really want to find and do everything in it. The graphics are good (nothing fancy) however there are reports about stutter around the dining table scene but that can be helped by turning off certain shader options within your graphical program (it works better than ingame settings impo). Truth be told, i've not seen any stutter like mentioned above in my current 16 hours of playtime. It does however affect your overal fps quite a bit if you max out all your settings without paying close attention to the pros & cons that might come with it so keep that in mind or it'll ruin your experience as i've read on Steam plenty of times over. Also if you don't like backtracking, this game might not be to your liking because you'll have to do plenty of that as well! The pacing is not that fast, even when running so don't be upset about the way the story goes and the time you need to travel on foot..
    The inventory can and will luckily be increased depending on what you've discovered throughout the game, so you will in fact have the largest inventory available to you if you compare it with the inventories of previous Resident Evil games. There are plenty of tools for crafting, upgrading, and reforging. You will have herbs, pills, heath potions and many other stuff at your disposal. Weapons are varied, but not in large numbers so use them wisely. Difficulty wise there are a few modes in the beginning of the game, but you can adjust them additionally after completing the game if you want to challenge your skills even further.
    This review will not go into every detail because i don't want to spoil too many things, and i don't want to mention about the characters or the initial story for that matter. Personally i think it's better to be oblivious about the game and get into it without expecting too much at first. Just keep an open mind and take it from there. What else can i say? Well, would i rate 10/10? Hmm, honestly it deserves at least 8.5/10 and i'm also happily giving a GOTY reward in it's own class. However i already put 16 hours into it after 2 days, i must say that doesn't happen all too often these days, so i will rate this game a solid 9/10!
    Don't take my word for it guys, but try it out for yourselves okay. Just make sure you are in the clear of running this game optimized, so do your homework or better yet make sure your rig is well optimized before playing.. Have fun!

    Resident Evil 7 follows a new path back to its first days of intense, atmospheric horrors. Despite inconsistencies and the disappointing final hours, this breath of fresh gameplay may be just what the series desperately needs.

    I usually write reviews to complain of an especially bad title, but this time I'm doing this out of awe.
    Resident Evil 7 is possibly the best resident evil, and for me the best survival horror of the last 12 years.

    GAMEPLAY
    Just awesome, the first person camera is more than perfect, combat system is ok, weapons are all very satisfying if used in the right context, and there's lot of hidden valuables so to make the exploration of every room a pleasurable ritual. This game is very much scripted, in the old RE fashion, only allowing for a few actual free choices overall. This could sound awful but it is not. Any single room, corridor, sequence or event is little challenge. It doesn't get boring, as it is built this way to make you feel constantly challenged and on edge. You're in for a surprise at every turn.

    GRAPHIC AND AUDIO
    The RE engine is a piece of art in my humble opinion, and I love it especially for its astounding light effects. In a survival horror, nothing is more important than that, and I seriously never have seen like this before. The audio effects are fantastic in never allowing your anxiety level to go down, apart from few secure areas.
    The overall experience feels like living a perfectly paced movie

    PLOT
    Although the plot may at first seem disconnected from any other RE, those who care to put informations together may find references from previous games, events and characters, and hints to **** yet to happen. I myself, haven't played only half the titles in this franchise (RE 2,4,5), am unable to connect certain dots. Also the finale is mindblowing for more than one reason, as I found out on my second runthrough in Madhouse mode. I suspect I could even find out more playing it a 3rd time, but I restrained myself from doing that.
    Cutscenes can't be skipped but are superbly executed, as is the voice-over. The level of polishing for so many details is simply astonishing.

    I give this 9 and not 10 for some minor shortcomings:
    - enemies are few in kind and not very scary-looking, apart from this they do an excellent job of giving you heart-attacks
    - can't aim down the barrel
    - some items are just useless

    Probably the best horror game.. ever.
    Horror games were never my style, but this one is amazing.
    There are probably only 5 horror games that i like and this is definitely one of them.
    This game is amazing, the price is pretty high for a not so long game, I'd give it 8.5 if it was possible.
    Overall it's amazing!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Personalized story more than the stories of the previous sections that catches you where the fate of the world depends on you. It will be met with a group of interesting characters, and the story is the mysterious and exotic and full of surprises and crazy characters will keep you in thrall. As well as dialogue and voice performance and distinctive shift from the previous sections, The family Taathecm you and play your performance with terrifying and hilarious. In addition, there are several videos allow you to play other characters and scenes story from a different perspective. Although the story in its entirety one, but there are some options that are changing a little bit of experience, and with the presence of some secret scenes.
    The game world is a good size and great diversity, but what sets it apart -balmat in the family home is a frequent Alosasa- detail the furniture and realistic compared to other games, which makes you feel as real and inhabited world, and with the time Sthfezh may not even need a map. It is worth mentioning that a copy Playstation 4 Pro provides images of the purest and richest effects of the Playstation 4 normal.
    Way of progress in the game confuse linear (moving from one point to another) and free, there is always one or more aspire to, but the reach of the target and the order of the goals is up to you the way, and will explore and take over the place gradually by solving puzzles and open closed doors and shortcuts that bind throughout the world some more. Puzzles in its entirety is not difficult, and most of them require to find specific tools for progress. Well there are several secrets, including the pictures show you the places to look for treasures.
    Provides a number of diverse arms asymptotic to the number of weapons in the previous sections, there is a knife and a pistol and rifle, flame thrower, bombs, etc., and lead to a limited but sufficient because kill most enemies (depending on skill and difficulty level). Fighting needs to focus, and any mistake will cost you a lot, as the automatic registration can not be relied upon always (unlike the manual registration in the registry rooms). Limited movement of your character and of being the first person makes a tough and spirited fighting perspective but fair, and you can raise the level of challenge to the difficulty of "Madhouse" to reduce the automatic recording of a lot, and reduce the number of manual recording tapes that you find.
    Return your luggage management system (tools and weapons carried by), which forces you to choose whether you want to carry weapons or bullets more, or a Band-Aid, or items that you need to solve puzzles. As well as you will find chemicals that can be combined with the lead to get stronger lead, or with herbs to get a Band-Aid, and once again you will need to make tough decisions in this regard, but during your progress in the game will increase the number of items that you can carry.
    Horror exists in the game and strongly, and several different aspects. There is fear of a surprise some enemies you suddenly, the horror of fighting the bosses of the first-person perspective in a game not return the health of your character automatically, always fighting up close and first-person perspective, which makes you on your nerves. There are horror because of excessive violence, and another when trying to escape from one of the enemies or sneak quietly, and finally there are the horror myself from the darkness and thick place desolate and random sounds, not knowing what might happen at any moment, and in this aspect is the earliest the first part of the series, which was reissued in 2015.
    Developed a virtual reality, currently exclusive to PlayStation (Playstation VR), is excellent in its entirety. You play the game full of his way, or switch between television and virtual reality by referring to the main menu and then supplement your play, and experience remain in their entirety themselves, but when playing virtual reality will feel greater integration with the world of the game, you will feel the size of the place and imminent danger you are Larger.

    While i have great memories about the older Resident Evil games and was quiet unsure how this one would turn out, it surprised me. Top notch graphics and an amazing sound design that instills fear while sneaking around the house in the dark, with the whistling wind outside and creaky floorboards around you, make this game one of the better parts of the main series.

    The first part of the game is better, while the end slightly disappoints, due to an abundance of ammo and weapons that make the game less terrifying.

    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.
