    Overall, RE Village is a fantastic RE game with some minor flaws here and there. It takes just about everything from RE7 and makes it better. RE Village loses much of the horror in RE7, but it makes up for it with everything else. I really feel it’s impossible to not like this game more than RE7 and this is coming from a person that greatly enjoyed the horror aspect of RE7. I was a complete naysayer once I saw that RE Village had more of an action approach and was proven wrong by the end of the game. Resident Evil Village is really good and is a definite pickup if you’re an RE fan.

    Some misconceptions about RE8!

    1. “Short game or it’s 8 hours only.” This is straight up WRONG. The game can easily take more than 12 hours
    Some misconceptions about RE8!

    1. “Short game or it’s 8 hours only.” This is straight up WRONG. The game can easily take more than 12 hours to finish. Some even beat it in more than that. The in-game timer literally lies to you, if you’ve played 12 hours, it will tell you that you spent 7 or 8 hours. RE8 has more exploration and side optional in-game content more than any previous RE game. It’s easily one of the longest RE games. It’s got a perfect length for an RE game, not to mention that it has post-game content and good replay value.

    2. “It’s not scary.” hella WRONG! This game has different types of horror. From RE7 type of horror, to RE4 (panicking), and to Silent Hill / PT level of horror + other types. In fact, one section in the game has probably the scariest and creepiest moment in the entire franchise.

    3. “It’s RE4+RE7.” This is true, but it also has inspirations from almost every RE game. The game feels like it’s a celebration for RE’s 25th anniversary.

    I’ve enjoyed my time playing it and I think it’s A MUST BUY for every RE fan or a survival horror fan.

    - Easily and by a huge margin, RE8 is the best looking RE game ever. It's INCREDIBLY detailed, well designed and STUNNING to look at.
    - Very atmospheric, and its got a lot of variety in that aspect as well.
    - Sound design is also the best in the series. The intro is horrifying!
    - From the first few hours, you'll quickly notice how big and diverse the game is.
    - Levels are intricately crafted, with more ways to explore them. Really liked how the village was structured with more ways to explore and search its houses.
    - The game INSANELY nails the interior design of its levels; I find myself stopping every 5 mins or so just to absorb the beauty of it all.
    - The game's setting really makes you feel like you're playing in a horror themed amusement park.
    - There is clear emphasis on exploration and side content.
    - The game allows you to take control of your own pacing at certain sections. It’s not really a linear game. It has more freedom and exploration than previous RE games as I mentioned before, which I liked very much!
    - The game does a really good job of changing its intensity from time to time. Presenting different types of horror along the way, mixing them up with action / adventure elements & sequences while still being within its survival horror medium. It’s well balanced, diverse and refreshing.
    - RE8 has some of the highest highs in the franchise. When it hits, it hits real good. :D
    - NO LOADING TIMES. That's a technical marvel considering the quality of its graphics, level design and performance. RE Engine strikes again!
    - Puzzles are fun and rewarding.
    - Backtracking here is the most fun and rewarding in all of the RE games.
    - Music is top tier.
    - The merchant is cool.
    - The story is intriguing and thrilling.
    - The characters are some of the best in the series. Really interesting, very well acted and fun to watch. Not including Ethan though lol, however he's honestly better this time.

    * Advice: if you're playing with a controller (consoles or on PC), turn off the movement camera acceleration and aiming camera acceleration settings. They somewhat introduce input delay and make the camera movement feel slow. Terrible settings!

    Just finished my first playthrough and the story is excellent, atmosphere is just as good and a decent length.. My only real complaint is theJust finished my first playthrough and the story is excellent, atmosphere is just as good and a decent length.. My only real complaint is the mouse movement as I use a trackball and no matter how I set the sensitivity, it crawls across the screen. Decent customization options available for the weapons and ammo is easily crafted (at least for the standard pistols) before it starts requiring chem fluids which are not craftable. Would highly recommend. Excellent twist in the last section. No spoilers Expand
