The 7th main iteration of the Resident Evil series is finally here and it’s a terrifying corker.
You play as Ethan who is searching for his wife who supposedly died 3 years ago. His search takes him to the home of the Baker family which is where the fun begins.
Resi 7 is played entirely in the first person, meaning all the scares are in your face. This is used to terrifying effect during the game since the Bakers like to get up close.
During the game you face each member of the Baker family one at a time. Each attack you in there own unique way. Jack, for example, is a walking tank who relentlessly chases you down. I’ll leave the others as a surprise.
One of the main concerns before the game was released was people were worried that it would be missing all the things that make a Resident Evil game. Rest assured however that they are pretty much all here. We have herbs, strange doors, weird puzzles, evil experiments, item boxes and very little ammo.
Resident Evil 7 is a brilliant return to form for the series. I’ve already finished the game 6 times and I’m still not bored. Sure the last third or so doesn’t live up to the first two thirds but this is a game that shouldn’t be missed.
