Finished it not just once. But three times.

Quickest time was 2 hours 53 minutes.

I really really really enjoyed this. Lady Dimitrescu is the bomb. The castle section was my favourite by far. That could have been the whole game and I would have been happy.

The story is a bit muddled by this point. So it is what it is. But I loved the setting, the graphics, the gameplay.

I enjoyed every single second of all my playthroughs.

RE8 is technically a sequel to #7. However, #8 doesn’t have the horror focus. I didn’t find any part to be scary. This is a pure action game- FPS. It’s good at being an action game, but I missed the horror. There are a better variety of enemies than #7. There are some puzzles- but they are quite easy- and I’m not the best puzzle solver. Like most RE games there’s quite a bit of backtracking. There are several twists and turns that I didn’t see coming- that was probably the best part. Although the ending had some over the top components- I found it to be satisfying. It’s a short game- only took me 6hours 39minutes first time, 2nd time took me only 4.5 hours skipping most cutscenes. Doesn’t seem to be worth the money. It does imply a sequel after the credits- but not with who you might think. Overall I’d recommend it if you like action/shooter games. But if you want horror, then it’s not going to fulfill that need. Didn’t really see a PS5 difference- not many opportunities for ray-tracing. But graphics in the castle were stunning. I didn’t think it was nearly as good as #7. I’d give it an 7/10 or 3/5.

And yet, even with these flaws accounted for, there’s no doubt that Resident Evil Village is a great title by its own merits and a fantastic entry into the Resident Evil franchise. Longtime fans will find plenty to love about the game and the innovations it brings to the table, while newer fans will discover more than a few reasons to stick with the series moving forward.

The execution is severely fudged, the pace is drastically uneven, the set-pieces are routinely ludicrous, some moments are unintentionally hilarious, and the only sign of restraint or subtlety of any kind is in the excellent dollhouse segment, which is over all too soon. The rest of Resident Evil Village is emblematic of Capcom letting its id run wild, forgetting that great horror often lies in what you don't see, rather than the big monster screaming directly into your face.

Resident Evil Village doesn't have the most engrossing or satisfying story in Resident Evil history, and its more action-oriented approach is likely to disappoint fans that enjoyed RE7's pure horror. However, Resident Evil Village is packed with replay value, rarely has a dull moment, and should leave Resident Evil fans excited for the franchise's future.
