    Resident Evil Village may be the best Resident Evil of all time. It certainly is up there with the best of the series, but that heavily depends on your kind of RE game. If you enjoyed RE4 or RE7 then you’ll probably like this one. And if you enjoyed both of them as much as each other then this very well could be one of the best. It certainly is for me.

    Resident Evil Village is a worthy sequel that takes full advantage of its Gothic setting, with Capcom delivering an absolute masterclass in survival horror thrills.

    Resident Evil Village is a great horror game that is sure to delight newcomers and old fans of the series. The horror setting has moments that are genuinely terrifying and the game’s narrative feels suitably satisfying, and grotesque, to entice fans of the genre. The only downside is that its increased focus on combat can make it feel a little too easy, even when played on the normal difficulty setting. If you’re looking to experience the true horrors on offer here, I suggest you crank up the difficulty.

    A grimly beautiful collection of killer horror set-pieces, with some of the most memorably grotesque enemies in Resi history.

    The first run through Resident Evil Village is a genuinely thrilling, often scary ride, which draws on a lot of features from the series' greatest hits. It's worth a look for anyone who's ever enjoyed a Resident Evil game or a first-person shooter. The cracks only start to show later on. Village is playable and entertaining, but it lacks some attention to detail when compared to the other mainline entries in the series.

    Those comparisons to Resident Evil 4 are not entirely unfounded then. It is not as genre-shifting as that game – few games are – but it does share a certain ethos and hunger for variety in tension and action. It is very much its own thing too, both a natural continuation of the series recent reinvention and a manic expansion of its long-standing invention and flamboyance. Most of all, it is a tremendous, and tremendously terrifying, video game in its own right.

    A grand rogue's gallery stuck in a small world and a disappointingly familiar game design.

    El apartado gráfico y ambientación de la Europa del este es maravilloso y no hay ni una sola queja un sobresaliente.

    El sonido a mejorado mucho respecto a su anterior título tanto es así que es uno de los apartados a destacar de esta entrega, se siente como estuvieras dentro del cuerpo del protagonista y todo suena espectacular.

    Personalmente la cámara en primera persona no me convenció en su día pero en esta entrega se siente más RE que su predecesor y sabe llenar a los fans más veteranos, muy buen trabajo.

    Oynanış, boss dizaynı falan klasik resident evil. 7'nin direkt devamı ve eski oyunların öncesine yani felaketin nasıl başladığına veOynanış, boss dizaynı falan klasik resident evil. 7'nin direkt devamı ve eski oyunların öncesine yani felaketin nasıl başladığına ve Umbrella'nın kuruluşuna dair bir kaç bilgi de var.
    Oyunda 4+1 kötü karakter var. Sırayla hepsiyle kapışıyoruz.
    Oynanış ve tema olarak birbirlerinden farklılar. Bazıları aksiyon bazıları bulmaca ağırlıklı. Hatta bir bölüm boyunca ve sonundaki boss savaşında silah dahi kullanmıyoruz.
    Hikaye olarak fena değildi, baş düşmanın motivasyonu yerindeydi ama son bölüm hariç neredeyse hiç görmedik.
    Köy atmosferi güzeldi ama ben 2, 3 ve 7'deki sürekli peşimizden gelen boss'ların verdiği tedirginlik hissini daha çok seviyorum.
    Bunun yanında 7 ve 2'nin aksine oyunda cephane ve envanter alanı çoktu. Cephane sıkıntısı neredeyse hiç yaşamadım, ateş ederken mermi saymadım.
    Tabanca hariç diğer silahları kullanmak çok zevkliydi. Tabancadaki oturaklılık hissi 2'ye göre hiç yoktu. Düşmanların parçalanma efekti de kaldırılmış.
    İlk 4 boss ve bölüm arasında en sevdiğim fabrikalı olandı.
    İkincisi uzun kadınlı ama ondan değil güve sürüsüne dönüşen kızlarından dolayı. Oyunun her bölümünde bir ana boss bir kaç tane yan boss oluyor. Onlar da iyiydi hakikaten.
    Her bölüm bittikten sonra köye dönüp yeni yerlere erişip loot yapıyoruz. Alışveriş yaptığımız dük ilginçti.
    Sonuçta gerginlik hissinin göreceli olarak azlığından dolayı 2 kadar sevmesem de 3'ten kat kat iyiydi. 7 ile aynı seviyede diyebilirim.

    I appreciate that Steam allowed the option to download and play the demo first. That saved me the headache of having to have it refunded. II appreciate that Steam allowed the option to download and play the demo first. That saved me the headache of having to have it refunded. I was never a resident evil fan, and based on the fact that shooting zombies point blank in the face repeatedly doesn't kill them in this game means i will likely not become one anytime soon. After playing for 10 minutes and seeing an achievement for 10 minutes of playtime, and then again at 20 minutes and 25 minutes, it became pretty clear to me that this is not the type of game i should invest money in.
