    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.

    A return to form for the series, going back to the slower pacing and survival horror roots that made the franchise. Great atmosphere andA 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. Expand

    Resident Evil 7 - a nice update of the series. The sixth part finally turned into a stupid action, revelations and revelations 2 was a goodResident 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.

    There is not much to talk about this game because it doesn't really have much on offer. So I will get straight to pros and cons:

    There is not much to talk about this game because it doesn't really have much on offer. So I will get straight to pros and cons:

    Pros:
    - detailed environments
    - nostalgic
    - can be climatic, but sadly inconsistently
    - well calculated resources, so you need use it efficiently
    - feels catching enough despite many cons.

    Cons:
    - disjointed gameplay, half of the game is hide and seek puzzle solving, second half is COD shooter
    - disjointed storyline that feels written in 10 minutes while doing a thing in a toilet.
    - poorly developed and poorly presented characters
    - excessive backtracking and re-use of content with video tapes.
    - graphics from technical standpoint feel underwhelming (poor textures, bad anti-aliasing solutions, inconsistent lighting)
    - personally, I didn't feel any horror and didn't found enough tension I was looking for.
    - lazy enemy design and extremely few enemy types
