Top Customer Reviews
New to the Resident Evil series? You're going to LOVE this game.
Dislike horror games? You're definitely going to HATE this game.
Resident Evil 7 pays homage to where the original crafted the survival horror genre that so many fans know & love. A true modern survival horror done extremely well, if you're looking for that next title to do that genre justice look no further. The gameplay is a mix of old school with new school elements that takes the player on a thrilling and horrifying journey.
-Graphics are jaw dropping. Sharp, detailed, and extremely unnerving textures & lighting.
-The various creepy sounds you'll hear throughout this game will keep you on edge the whole way through. The soundtrack is extremely well done I feel, and was very subtle yet powerful in regards to enhancing the experiences and scenarios.
-The game play is actually extremely fun. Killing enemies is actually extremely satisfying despite the fact that the best option in combat scenarios often at times is fleeing.
_****THE STORY***** literally the best part of the game in my opinion. The whole time my cousin and I played this game we kept theorizing what would be the situation or what would happen next and we could not pin it at all. The fact that this story leaves you in complete mystery compared to Resident Evil 5/6's painfully obvious story arcs was a very pleasant surprise and quite the thrilling experience to unravel.
-Had some Resident Evil 4-like gruesome deaths. I didn't experience nearly the amount that was in RE4 but the few that I did see were pretty......intense.
-There is some replay value in regards to a key point of the story. Not going to give spoilers so take my word for it, especially if you care about the story then it would be worth going through again for this point alone. Also to try again on a harder difficulty setting because why not. I mean I guess you could just YouTube it after beating the game to find out what the difference is but that takes the fun out of it!
-Puzzles are fun and neat but not that challenging in my opinion. Slightly disappointed in regards here.
-I finished the game on the Normal difficulty @ 8.5 hours. I rushed a little in the third act though mainly because I wanted to find out what happened next in the story arc but ultimately in terms of length it's about average for a game. I suppose for those with busy schedules this could be considered a "Con" even.
**Note: I never write reviews so apologies for my mediocre writing. Also I did NOT try VR so I cannot personally attest to the quality of it.
Overall: Biohazard is a top-notch survival horror game. The graphics are excellent, the gameplay is challenging, and the story is interesting. The game isn’t perfect, as I discuss below, but it seems to me that the pros outweigh the cons.
Did they combine live action footage with computer generated imagery in the beginning of the game? I’m not sure. Either way, I’m impressed. But this isn’t true for all of the game. If you’re a stickler for graphics, you might notice some objects which aren’t rendered to your liking. Otherwise, I doubt you’ll have complaints.
I haven’t died so much in a game in a while, yet I never felt frustrated when I died. I always recognized some flaw in my playing style which needed to be addressed. Resident Evil 7 is tough, but not arbitrarily so. Although, I am somewhat new to the survival horror genre of video games, so veterans might not have such a tough time.
Story: I often cringe at the sophomoric storytelling in video games; Biohazard is a pleasant surprise. I found myself engaged with the story, wanting to know more. However, depending on your knowledge of horror movies, you might find some aspects of the story too derivative.
Common Complaints: Lack of monster variety; easy puzzles.
I agree that there is a lack of monster variety, but, for the most part, it feels natural given the game’s small setting. Though, one does wonder why there aren’t any zombie alligators or other creatures given the game’s location in the woods in Louisiana in the middle of nowhere. Nevertheless, the “molded” are terrifying enough to carry the game. Imagine Baraka from Mortal Kombat and Tarman from Return of the Living Dead have a baby, which is adopted and raised by Satan.
I agree that most of the puzzles for the main story of the game are fairly easy. But in the game developer’s defense, there is a lot of hidden stuff which isn’t as easy to find. Also, I found a puzzle towards the end of the game challenging, though perhaps this is due to insufficient cognitive capacities on my part.
Why in the world can’t you manually turn your flashlight on or off? This would have been such a great feature in the game! It gets frustrating when you’re walking in near complete darkness, but you know that the protagonist is carrying a flashlight. Moreover, this could have added a great survival aspect to the game (conserving battery life, hiding from enemies in the dark, etc.).
Why can’t you pick up certain items? For instance, there is a baseball bat in one room, yet you can’t pick it up. This would have been handy when battling the molded.
Despite some minor complaints, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard comes highly recommended. 4.5/5
