    The changes have been a long time coming, but the final result may well have given us one of the best horror titles we are likely to see this year…finally bringing the horror back to Resident Evil.

    Despite its radical switch to first person view, Resident Evil 7 biohazard represents a real comeback to the series' origins, with a disturbing and scary atmosphere, great story and characters and a thrilling gameplay mixing exploration, puzzle solving and combat. An awesome new beginning for Capcom's franchise.

    Resident Evil 7 Biohazard is a reminiscent of the old school survival horror with some modern mechanics from title like Outlast. The plot is a little 'stereotypical, but the game has seductive sounds and atmosphere.

    Resident Evil 7 seems to us an indispensable game if you like the adventures with action and puzzles, but with a great inconvenience: IT IS SO SCARY. Keeps you heartbroken for hours and that is everything that we wanted from this title. Stay away from the prejudices you had about this game of the Resident Evil saga, because you will love it without a doubt.

    Resident Evil 7 feels as terrifying as it does modern, all while returning the series to its roots. It hits some familiar bumps along the way, but this is the best this series has felt in years.

    Even though Resident Evil 7 Biohazard ditches the third person point of view to a first person and a more intimate story, it does an amazing job of bringing back its roots which made the series so successful. The extraordinary work that was done in the different game departments such as story telling, audio, gameplay and graphics will keep me from sleeping at night and remembering it as a great experience.

    Resident Evil 7 grounds itself in elements that made the original great while still indulging in a risky new shift in style that both helps and hurts the beloved formula in equal measure. But it’s also the closest a numbered sequel has come to recapturing Resident Evil’s slow, but thrilling and atmospheric adventure game roots in a while — a welcome return that I truly hope to see more of in the future.

Photorealistic rendering transports the player into an entirely new realm within the RE universe. Classic puzzle solving combined with stealthy bone chilling progression makes this release #1 on my list.

    With a return to its roots, "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" amps up the tension, fear, and isolation that's been absent in recent installments.With a return to its roots, "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" amps up the tension, fear, and isolation that's been absent in recent installments. The switch from a third person to a first person perspective immerses the player in its environments, and the story being told. With limited inventory making a return, item management becomes a key factor as the game progresses and more items become available for the player to obtain. A new protagonist, who has no experience with the kinds of situations he's placed in, and who also lacks any sort of special training like our regular heroes, brings about heavy feelings of vulnerability as he's pitted against the sadistic Baker family. The plot and progression is well paced, and in the end, is able to connect with the overall narrative of the franchise. "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" is a definite masterpiece, and one worth experiencing. Expand

    this game caught me off guard in a very good way it was not what i expected at all.
    Resident evil 7 captures the original games creepy atmosphere and goofy writing incredibly well, a horror game with some good scares but does not take itself to seriously, my only real criticisms are a lack of enemy variety and a disappointing final boss.

    Pros - Very influenced from early RE titles as well as Sweet Home (the NES game the series was influenced by). Brings back the large residencePros - Very influenced from early RE titles as well as Sweet Home (the NES game the series was influenced by). Brings back the large residence in Resident Evil as well as a few smaller locations. The cabin by the house could've been used more though since it was fairly unsettling itself.

    Goes back to survival horror roots. Ammo is fairly limited until the end of the game as well as healing items.

    Graphics are wonderful. Textures are fairly detailed on the unsettling areas of the locations. Wall textures could be better though.

    The plot starts off as fairly generic Texas Chainsaw Massacre hillbilly horror but Capcom takes it to another level by adding stalking elements of RE3's Nemesis and RE2's Mr. X.

    Controls are fairly tight but the aiming is a little slower than I'd like on default settings.

    Cons - Enemy designs are pretty lacking. The Molded feel generic but the boss battles are pretty fun.

    Puzzles are lazily done. Other than the Happy Birthday puzzle, no other puzzles feel as intricate or memorable.

    One deciding factor is the first person perspective. If for some reason you cannot stand First Person (as some don't due to motion sickness), don't get this. However, if you play First person games, get this. The first person is absolutely needed for Resident Evil now. Fixed camera RE is gone because it was an outdated mechanic that would save on memory usage during the PS1/PS2 days. First person horror is a somewhat standard now because of how successful games like Amnesia, Alien Isolation, and Outlast are and how well they implement it. RE7 has implemented it well.

    Also, disregard any posts saying the game has supernatural elements. The game doesn't have any of that. If you can understand how mold works and spreads as well as how insects have hive minds, you'll understand how the story and new virus works.

    RE7 tries to deliver the authentic horror feeling and it delivers it near perfectly. The game shows the player that everything they thoughtRE7 tries to deliver the authentic horror feeling and it delivers it near perfectly. The game shows the player that everything they thought about horror is wrong and It won't fail the scare the player. The plot is more than interesting, I loved it. The game shows us every type of horror that exists, from the Chainsaw massacre, to the Saw and It combines it so well. My only problems with the game are the length and the price. In my opinion the game doesn't worth 60 euros with this much of a replay value, if you are interested I would suggest to wait for a sale, because this price might be too much for this game. Expand
