RE7 ends just as it starts to outstay its welcome, and after the fact, I felt like I'd survived a truly harrowing journey. The boss fights may be slightly inconsistent and certain sections might drag after a while, but RE7 is still a remarkable success. It has a clear vision and executes it with impressive patience and precision. By returning to horror, Resident Evil has once again become something special.
Matt EakinsJan 30, 2017
It never fails to make you feel unsettled and it’ll creep you the hell out, but damn, it’s good. Capcom have restored Resident Evil to its former glory, and restored my faith in video games’ capacity to frighten me. Few scares in the game feel cheap, and I love that. It’s a petrifying whirlwind of paranoia; a masterclass of suspense; an awe inspiring triumph; a truly remarkable experience.
Philip KollarJan 23, 2017
Resident Evil 7's changes — especially the shift to first-person — may be off-putting to some. But it's an evolution that fits perfectly into the world and source material Capcom has created. It's hard to know if Resident Evil 7 will stand the test of time as much as classics like the original, or RE4. Taken on its own, however, it's an excellent game that pushes the series in worthy new directions.
Richard WalkerJan 23, 2017
As a die-hard Resident Evil fan since the first game arrived in 1996, Resident Evil 7 hits all of the right notes while feeling like a natural evolution for the series. Building upon what makes Capcom's survival horror so special, while effectively telling an entirely new story, Resident Evil 7 is a fantastic game that ought to please those looking for scares and fervent Resident Evil faithful alike.
Tyler TreeseJan 26, 2017
Resident Evil 7 biohazard isn’t without its flaws, but it’s absolutely the sequel that Capcom had to make in order to make the series relevant again. It features some fantastic scares early on, offers up the familiar gameplay that fans have been begging to return (even if the new ideas are even more exciting), and uses the first-person perspective to its advantage. Resident Evil is back, and the future is looking bright as long as it continues to evolve.
Dan RyckertJan 23, 2017
Part of the game boasts its fair share of scares, the really impressive stuff is what comes once things open up. Resident Evil 7 features just the right amount of modern twists mixed into the traditional formula. It may not reach the same heights as an industry-changer like Resident Evil 4, but it certainly ranks among the best entries in the series.
Samuel GuglielmoFeb 05, 2017
There’s an interesting story, some fantastic gameplay, mind-bending puzzles, lovely graphics, and the best use of VR I’ve seen in gaming yet. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is the exact kind of revival that fans of the classic entries in the series were hoping for, without alienating fans of the more action-focused later entries either. It’s an amazing early highlight into what’s looking like another fantastic year in gaming.
Alice BellJan 23, 2017
There are some fantastic environments and old school style puzzles in Resi 7. The final section stops being survival horror and becomes a bit of a clunky linear shooter, but the first few hours are scary enough to put you off Louisiana for life.
Joe VargasFeb 07, 2017
Chandler WoodJan 25, 2017
Altogether it’s a sharp crossroads between horror films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes, and the classic slow paced survival horror of Resident Evil.
Chloi RadJan 23, 2017
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.
Adam CookJan 23, 2017
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a true return to form, and one of the scariest games in years. It’s only let down by the fact it loses its fear factor by slightly outstaying its welcome.
Ray CarsilloJan 23, 2017
Resident Evil 7 might be the first must-own game of 2017. If you’re a fan of survival horror, then you’ll recognize the tremendous return to form this was for Capcom’s legendary series, and be equally thrilled and terrified by the atmosphere and level of immersion this experience provides.
Zack FurnissJan 23, 2017
With or without VR, Capcom nailed the pulse-pounding atmosphere and I am finally legitimately excited to see what it's going to do next. Though the enemy design could have been more varied, the bosses more than make up for that. The last hour and boss is slightly underwhelming, but everything up to that is consistently amazing. Resident Evil 7 went beyond my expectations, and I feel we have an instant classic here.
Ryan MeitzlerJan 27, 2017
Though it appears like a complete reinvention from the outside looking in, Resident Evil VII is very much made from the same DNA that made the original games the revered horror classics that they are today. Like the game’s intro that has players sitting down for supper with the Bakers, Resident Evil VII has welcomed players back not just to the series’ horror roots, but to a grim, disgusting feast that you just can’t turn away from.
Patrick TretinaJan 24, 2017
Resident Evil 7 truly delivers an experience unlike anything I’ve even been exposed to in the gaming world. It’s fresh, unique, a little bit nostalgic, and downright stressful to play... in a good way. Capcom has taken some seriously impressive strides forward in the franchise and has potentially rescued it from fading into obscurity though this distinct and highly effective new point of view. Resident Evil is back and it will grip your from start to finish until you can’t possibly take anymore.
Jim SterlingJan 25, 2017
Resident Evil 7 is a damn fine game. Damn, damn fine. Although it initially looks like a desperate chase for Outlast‘s credibility, it slowly reveals itself to be more of a traditional Resident Evil adventure than one might believe, while taking successful elements from contemporary horror games and utilizing them effectively.
Sam SpyrisonJan 25, 2017
Capcom has once again managed to reinvigorate and reinvent one of gaming’s most beloved series, and there’s already plenty of intrigue as to where the franchise is headed next. But for now, the Baker family’s tale is one that demands to be shared, and Resident Evil fans and horror fans alike will find plenty to encourage and engross as they push, crawl and fight their way through a bold new step for the classic series.
Lizzy FinneganJan 26, 2017
While I have plenty of complaints - unspectacular boss fights and forgettable puzzles - none of these things detracts from the overall atmospheric horror, enjoyable gameplay, and brilliant antagonists that you love to hate. It's everything the series should have been up to this point, and I honestly would have been satisfied with less.
Brittany VincentJan 23, 2017
From top to bottom it’s clear this was a project that was handled with great care, with excellent voice acting, gruesome surprises, and scenes you’ll be scratching your head about for days to come. To all Resident Evil fans out there, I say welcome home. You’re going to enjoy your stay with the Bakers.
Nathan BirchDec 16, 2017
Resident Evil 7’s final round of DLC feels like a step backward. While both Not a Hero and End of Zoe are competently built, they replace the genuine horror and more nuanced characters of the main game with schlocky action and dumb wish fulfillment. The worst thing that can be said about Not a Hero and End of Zoe is that they leave me feeling uncertain about the future of the series. Let’s hope Capcom hasn’t already forgotten how to do Resident Evil right again.
Bill SmithJan 23, 2017
Much has been said about Resident Evil 6 and how it single handedly destroyed the series’ reputation but with Resident Evil 7, Capcom have bought the franchise right back to its roots. Capcom may possibly never top the experience provided by the first four games (and Code Veronica) in the series but they have come really very close with Resident Evil 7 Biohazard.
Andrew ReinerJan 23, 2017
Capcom has successfully reinvented Resident Evil in the past, the most notable deviation being the brilliant Resident Evil 4. This new vision doesn’t reach the same heights of spectacle and gameplay innovation as that breakthrough release, but is a welcome addition to the series (both in terms of gameplay and lore), and a nice entry point for newcomers.
Luke BrownFeb 03, 2017
Resident Evil 7 Biohazard is the best thing to happen to this series in more than a decade, and shows that you don't always have to follow the same drummer as everyone else to make something special.
Mike WilliamsJan 23, 2017
It's a bit on the short side and the latter chunk of the game is rather linear, but Resident Evil 7 absolutely recaptures the feeling of survival horror established in the first game. The Baker family is terrifying and spending time trapped in their home is damned good horror. As a new direction for the franchise, returning to an old one seems like it was a great idea.
David JagneauxJan 23, 2017
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard sets a new bar for survival horror games and stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the best games in the franchise’s long history. By uniting elements from the past, such as the slow pacing, focus on exploration, mind-bending puzzles, and desperation for survival, with the pulse-pounding first-person gameplay of the recent era of horror games, Capcom has crafted a veritable modern classic.
Kyle HansonJan 27, 2017
The Resident Evil series was dying a slow, painful death before Resident Evil 7 came along. Now it’s back on top and delivering scares like few others can. RE7 is a true delight for survival-horror fans, offering up a fresh take on the series’ formulas, while still paying homage to what has come before. If you’ve been seeking some true horror gaming, look no further than Resident Evil 7.
Jonathan LeackJan 25, 2017
It's hard to tell if this new style of Resident Evil is where it should move going forward as some of its charm has been lost in its transition to darkness. On the bright side the industry finally has a great AAA horror game. Maybe the gloom isn't so bad, after all.
Cade OnderJan 26, 2017
Resident Evil 7 is the best horror game I've played in a VERY long time. I'm excited to see where Capcom goes with the series and I hope they maintain this great sense of horror.
Leon HurleyJan 23, 2017
A brilliant reinvention for the series and great horror game in its own right.
Jim HargreavesJan 23, 2017
For them to successfully steer one of their flagships back on track, Capcom has done what many thought was unthinkable. It was less than twelve months ago that the publisher released Umbrella Corps, at which point I – and no doubt many others – were ready to call time on the series. Resident Evil 7 definitely has a handful of weak points, but it’s by far the best AAA survival horror game we’ve seen in quite some time.
Oscar TKJan 31, 2017
There’s a huge amount to admire in Resident Evil 7. It’s at once very old school, and at the same time very informed by modern game design and improvements to the genre. It’s definitely a new direction to the series, but not one that feels purely reactionary. It’s a considered rethink of the series, that lays out all the core vibes that made the original games so strong, and doubles down on them. Out of that blend of old and new, Resident Evil 7 feels like a breath of fresh air — completely its own thing.
Sam BishopJan 23, 2017
With Resident Evil 7, Capcom clearly looked to spice up the series by doing something new, mixing fresh ideas with what the fans know and love. What is most impressive, however, is the atmospheric horror that has been woven into an impactful story, and despite minor flaws it gripped us from start to finish, whether we were shooting enemies with what little ammo we had, or simply trying to escape the horrors around us.
Sammy BarkerJan 24, 2017
At its very best, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a barnstorming survival horror with some truly brilliant boss fights. Granted, the game isn't always able to maintain its own high standards, but it eclipses its abysmal predecessor with ease. While it borrows ideas from a variety of different sources, it manages to feel both original and old-school all at the same time. And even though fans are likely to be divided by the release's direction, make no mistake: this is the change that the series has needed for quite some time.
Gary BaileyJan 23, 2017
Despite being a reboot for the series, Resident Evil VII’s return to survival horror is both familiar and fresh, and it’s easily the best horror game in years.
Albert LichiApr 15, 2017
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is Capcom's little survival horror that could. With so much contention about this entry being in first-person and the complete lack of returning protagonists, many felt wrongfully disgruntled about this truly innovative and expertly crafted survival horror that plays the way classic Resident Evil would play in the current generation. The developers finally figured out what made Resident Evil tick, and they did it by taking a long and introspective look at the most beloved entries in the series and putting a new spin on them. PSVR and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard together is by far one of the most successful experiments since Resident Evil 4.
gamesTMMar 17, 2017
Resident Evil VII is exhilarating and terrifying in equal measure. It’s a brave and bold move for Capcom, feeling quintessentially classic while still feeling fresh and adventurous in its ambitions. Ultimately, Resident Evil VII is a breathtaking return to form for a series we long thought had abandoned any hope of redemption.
GameCentralJan 23, 2017
Even if it’s not an all-time classic Resident Evil 7 does more than enough to rejuvenate the reputation of the franchise, and is a great game in its own right. Not to mention a perfect jumping on point for new players. If Capcom can ensure the next game is more Resident Evil 2 than 5 then this is a great platform to build on, while also proving just what a game-changer well-implanted VR can be. So welcome back Resident Evil, it’s great to be scared by you again.
Drew HurleyJan 29, 2017
The future of Resident Evil looks very promising too, since Capcom established that the Bakers have taken plenty of visitors over the years and have filmed them all. These experiences are already set up to be the part of some upcoming DLC and for future instalments this leaves plenty of story threads hanging and questions left to be answered.
John-Paul JonesJan 23, 2017
Representing a T-Virus level shot in the arm for Capcom’s venerable survival horror franchise, Resident Evil 7 combines old and new alike to create the most essential entry in the series since its fourth core instalment.
Salva FernándezJan 25, 2017
Es tal el cambio de rumbo de la serie que precisamente su principal virtud en la última década, los tiroteos, es lo que menos convence de un juego que te asusta, te deja intranquilo y, sobre todo, te mantiene en tensión desde el primer minuto hasta el último. No es un título perfecto, y se ve en algunas inconsistencias técnicas o en combates con jefes finales poco inspirados. Pero sí es el título perfecto para volver al terror por la puerta grande. Y con un final que abre de par en par las puertas a un nuevo comienzo.
Álvaro CastellanoJan 23, 2017
Resident Evil 7 es muchas cosas pero, ante todo, es una extraordinaria noticia para la saga. Tras pasar por la acción pura y dura en esta ocasión tenemos un videojuego que, por fin, asume el género survival horror con conocimiento y gran resultado. Si tenemos claro que el estilo de las primeras entregas nunca volverá, básicamente porque sería un anacronismo en los tiempos que corren, la obra es estupenda y respetuosa para veteranos de la saga y neófitos.
pinjedJan 23, 2017
El juego mantiene el ritmo firma costa de no extenderse demasiado (ronda las diez horas) y la experiencia funciona combinando combate y exploración sin tiempos muertos ni fisuras —quizá el jefe final pudo haberse planteado como un clímax más tradicional, como un verdadero reto y no solo como unos fuegos de artificio—, se muestra sólido y en cierto modo consciente de la idea que debe perseguir.
DefaFeb 21, 2017
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard sin duda alguna pertenece a la lista de grandes títulos que no está dejando este sensacional 2017, por lo que la simple idea de tener más de él, nos parece sumamente atractiva a la mayoría. Sabemos que la cantidad de horas juego que algo como Banned Footage Vol. 2 te puede ofrecer está lejos de ser verdaderamente amplia, sin embargo, la calidad y conceptos que vienen dentro de este DLC, lo convierten en algo a lo que le deberías de echar el ojo, sobre todo si sientes curiosidad por saber más sobre la misteriosa narrativa que se nos presentó dentro del juego principal.
David MartínezJan 23, 2017
Resident Evil 7 consigue recuperar a esencia de los primeros juegos de la saga; es una aventura de terror muy sólida, con una primera hora memorable, y una nueva perspectiva, que le ha sentado de maravilla. Ofrece el cambio de dirección que Resident Evil necesitaba, de nuevo hacia el terror, la exploración y los puzles, alejándose de la acción.
ClaudioJan 26, 2017
Son pocas las cosas que podemos encontrar malas de esta entrega. Además de los acertijos, quizá la falta de variedad de enemigos sería uno de los pocos defectos que tiene. Hay que entender que Capcom tomó una nueva dirección y tenía que hacerlo. Era necesario darle un giro y enfoque distinto considerando la situación en la que se encontraba la serie tras los malos títulos que recibimos en los últimos años que habían dañado su imagen y legado. Se trata de Resident Evil, una de las franquicias más importantes en la historia de los videojuegos y amada por millones durante más de 20 años. Muchos quisieran escribir una historia así durante tanto tiempo.
David SorianoJan 23, 2017
No cabe duda de que con Resident Evil 7 estamos ante un excelente juego de terror. El cambio de perspectiva ayuda mucho a sumergirse en la gran atmósfera que ha creado Capcom y se ajusta como anillo al dedo para una experiencia de Realidad Virtual. Eso sí, por mucho número que veamos a continuación del título, este Resident Evil podría ser considerado como un reboot.
Jorge CanoJan 23, 2017
Hemos disfrutado muchísimo Resident Evil 7, una aventura de terror muy divertida y redonda, que recupera los elementos clave de las primeras entregas de la saga, pero que a la vez moderniza la fórmula sin perder su esencia. Un juego corto pero directo y que va al grano, con una historia sencilla pero efectiva, y un gran magnetismo para tenernos pegados al mando y la pantalla y que no queramos despegarnos, queriendo descubrir que nuevo horror nos espera detrás de la siguiente esquina.
Elizabeth LópezDec 12, 2017
A pesar de los cambios efectuados, El fin de Zoe recoge el testigo de Resident Evil 7, ofreciendo una gran experiencia de juego y manteniendo el cambio de dirección de la saga efectuado por el anterior. Si bien supone un buen final para cerrar la historia, su elevado precio y su corta duración no lo son tanto. Aun así, merece la pena jugarlo.
Valentin AschenbrennerJan 23, 2017
Lange hatte ich mit einem Resident Evil nicht mehr so viel Spaß, lange habe ich mich nicht mehr so viel gegruselt: Resident Evil 7 schafft als spielerischer Reboot der Serie endlich, der Reihe neues Leben einzuhauchen. Klassische Elemente wie ein Hauch Panzersteuerung und Survival-Horror feiern ihr Comeback, die sich hervorragend mit neuen Komponenten wie der Ego-Perspektive ergänzen.
Michael KrostaJan 23, 2017
Trotz der neuen Egosicht bewegt man sich hinsichtlich Atmosphäre, Mechanik und Design überraschend nah am Klassiker, mit dem 1996 alles begann. Genau wie dort wartet auch hier die gut ausbalancierte Mischung aus Erkundung, kleinen Rätseln, Kämpfen und fordernden Bossgegnern - alles verpackt in schaurig-schönen Kulissen, sauberer Darstellung und exzellentem Ton.
Carole QuintaineJan 23, 2017
Jouable de bout en bout en réalité virtuelle, une première pour la série, le jeu offre en plus une version fichtrement immersive de l'expérience, donnant vie à l'horreur qui n'existait jusqu'alors que sur nos écrans. Ce septième opus est peut-être le véritable "Rebirth" de la série. Une merveille de l'horreur, tout simplement !
Silent JayFeb 03, 2017
Le palpitant a ses raisons que la raison ignore. Et pourtant… entre déception, stupéfaction et plaisir coupable, notre coeur balance. Le segment “La Chambre” est une révélation. La cassette “Cauchemar” est une hérésie. Et le mode “Ethan Doit Mourir” ne fait que titiller la corde sensible des joueurs exigeants ne vivant que pour et par la difficulté.
la_redactionJan 23, 2017
C'est donc une très bonne surprise que ce Resident Evil VII qui réussit parfaitement à évoluer sur certains plans tout en reprenant les codes de la première trilogie. Rafraîchissant par moments, décevant à d'autres, le jeu de Capcom absorbe à l'instar du 6ème opus quantité de références (ciné et jeux vidéo) tout en les digérant beaucoup mieux pour les distiller sur la longueur afin d'accentuer un certain sentiment de stress.
Nicolas VerletJan 24, 2017
Le jeu n'est pas exempt de tout reproche, entre les combats un peu mous et surtout l’intrigue qui s'essouffle dès qu’elle essaie de raccrocher les wagons au train Resident Evil. Mais en se recentrant sur l'essentiel, Resident Evil 7 donne le sentiment d'ouvrir un nouveau chapitre pour la série. Un jeu peut-être imparfait, mais qui vous marquera de son empreinte.
Laurely BirbaJan 23, 2017
Bien sûr, tout n’est pas parfait dans Resident Evil 7, et on aurait aimé des énigmes plus tordues, des checkpoints moins présents, des munitions plus rares, une I.A. plus affûtée et un boss final moins ridicule. Mais ce retour aux premières amours, sublimé par le PlayStation VR et les coups de flippe qui l’accompagnent, était tellement attendu qu’on préfère savourer les boyaux servis par les Baker sans faire la fine bouche. Respecter ses hôtes, une règle d’or.
Aníbal GonçalvesFeb 03, 2017
Sempre gostei do género, daquele sentimento de desconforto mas incontrolável curiosidade da hora de desligar a luz e ligar a consola. Independentemente do nosso gosto se inclinar mais para o horror ou para a ação, historicamente Resident Evil é a série que marca o passo, que define o arquétipo e sobre a qual o resto do género se mede. Regressa com estrondo logo em janeiro, e é o primeiro grande jogo de 2017.
Massimo ReinaJan 24, 2017
Il prodotto strizza infatti l'occhio al capostipite della serie, mescolando elementi vecchi e nuovi per accontentare sia quei fan che richiedevano un ritorno alle origini a livello di atmosfere, sia coloro che volevano un tipo di esperienza più moderna, come quella legata a titoli quali Alien: Isolation e Outlast. Resident Evil 7 biohazard è quindi meno "diverso" rispetto ai suoi primi predecessori di quanto possa sembrare di primo acchito.
Rosario SalatielloJan 23, 2017
Una ripartenza che ha in parte il sapore della novità, ma che allo stesso tempo porta con sé anche il gusto dei primi capitoli richiesto a gran voce dai fan. Proprio per questo Resident Evil 7 Biohazard può essere consigliato senza indugio sia a chi si avvicina per la prima volta alla serie, sia a chi ha sviscerato ogni capitolo della saga.
Mattia RavanelliJan 23, 2017
Incredibile a dirsi, ma Resident Evil VII è soprattutto un gioco elegante e preciso. Capcom ha messo da parte molte, per non dire tutte, le derive che avevano arricchito ma anche appesantito la serie in questi venti anni. Il risultato finale è un’avventura più corta, più secca, ma anche più efficace, terrorizzante come non mai, capace di richiamare alla mente la prima uscita ma senza arrotolarsi sul citazionismo più sterile e deprimente.
Сергей ЦилюрикJan 23, 2017
Я же больше всего рад тому, что сериал Resident Evil в очередной раз поменялся, дал мне новый опыт, заставил взглянуть с новой стороны на знакомые элементы. Пусть эта его попытка меня и не сильно впечатлила, я надеюсь, что следующая часть нащупает для себя верное направление и выложится в нем по полной, а не будет пытаться поочередно надавить на разные хоррор-фетиши. И тогда у нее все будет хорошо.
Hürcan KöseJan 23, 2017
Serinin klasik oyunlarına büyük oranda benzerlik taşıyan Resident Evil 7, yeni-eski serinin tüm hayranlarını cezbedecek ve dolu dolu 10-12 saat yaşatacaktır. Ufak grafiksel hataları, oyunculuktaki bazı problemler ve önceden düzenlenmiş sahnelerin fazla belirgin olması gibi eksilere sahip olsa da genel anlamda çok kaliteli bir yapım. O özlediğimiz Resident Evil tadını fazlasıyla vermeyi başarıyor.
Calvin FoeJan 23, 2017
Met Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is de serie weer helemaal in vorm. De fotorealistische graphics zijn als een lekker sausje over de goed uitgewerkte klassieke Resi gameplay. De B-film-sfeer en de goede performance van de acteurs maakt de game ook nog ontzettend memorabel, al maakt de mindere tweede helft door het gebrek aan variatie in de vijanden beduidend minder indruk.
Stefan StuursmaJan 23, 2017
De intrigerende familie Baker, de nauwe en duistere gangen van het landhuis, de sublieme audiovisuele ervaring, stuk voor stuk zorgt het ervoor dat de game je de stuipen op het lijf jaagt. Tel daarbij op dat je het avontuur van begin tot eind in virtual reality kun doorkruisen, en je hebt de jackpot te pakken op het gebied van horror.
Przemysław ZamęckiJan 23, 2017
Zagadki i poszukiwania przedmiotów są na tyle angażujące i sprawiające satysfakcję, że narzekanie na ten element rozgrywki byłoby nie na miejscu. Największym i najważniejszym zarazem wyzwaniem jest odpowiednie korzystanie z noszonych przedmiotów i ich łączenia. Czy bardziej będziemy potrzebować apteczki, czy amunicji? Oto jest pytanie, kiedy tuż za rogiem czai się jakaś piekielna ohyda.
Mathias HolmbergJan 23, 2017
Det är knappast någon skräckrevolution vi snackar om här. Resident Evil må ha förändrat hela spelindustrin vid två tillfällen tidigare men denna gång har Capcom nöjt sig med att ta det bästa som speltypen redan har att erbjuda och helt enkelt skapa ett av de mest underhållande skräckspelen någonsin.
