    Resident Evil: Village takes the ground work from the seventh part and mixes it together with the very best from the previous Resident Evil titles. It enchants and shocks us at the same time, to the point that we become completely addicted to it. A contemporary classic that sets a new standard, just as Resident Evil 4 once did.

    Without forgetting the past, and again with Ethan Winters as lead character Resident Evil Village picks different celebrated elements from the franchise throughout the years and adapts them to the modern first-person view format, in an adventure that explores different atmospheres and dimensions of interactive terror, alternating between action moments and total despair. It is not revolutionary, but it is the most complete RE ever, without fear of treading supernatural paths and trapping itself in narrative alleys.

    Resident Evil Village is truly the spiritual son of Resident Evil 4 and 7! This theme park of horror perfectly mixes horror and action and offers an extremely neat universe: the atmosphere is heavy, the bestiary generous, the casting is perfect and the puzzles bring a real cachet to one of the scariest Survival Horror I’ve been able to play in a long time. Unfortunately, the link with the series is not more exploited. Nevertheless, despite a less-inspired last part, what we have here the best Resident Evil since Resident Evil 4.

    Resident Evil manages to prove once again that its DNA is not static, and that it has the ability to evolve in the same way as the viruses and biological weapons that its protagonists have fought for so many years. In more ways than one, Resident Evil Village is a huge tribute to 25 years of tradition, and an important stepping stone to its future.

    Resident Evil Village tastes new while still exuding the aromas of its essence. It manages to explore terror through new settings while compiling different approaches to build a videogame that, while tending towards action, does not forget the puzzle, exploration and tension typical of the saga. All this with a top technical aspect and an interesting plot that manages to be significant in the macro-plot of its fiction.

    Resident Evil Village doesn't have the most engrossing or satisfying story in Resident Evil history, and its more action-oriented approach is likely to disappoint fans that enjoyed RE7's pure horror. However, Resident Evil Village is packed with replay value, rarely has a dull moment, and should leave Resident Evil fans excited for the franchise's future.

    Reaching the credits, I sat back, exhausted and disappointed at where the series had ended up.

    Very good. Loads of fun. Strongly influenced by RE4 with a little dose of 7, and a worthy addition to the RE lore.

    Overall a fun game. Found the second half to be a bit to "CoD" or action oriented and less about atmosphere and scare.

    That being said,

    That being said, this game does have the most horrifying section out of all of them.
