Resident Evil has risen from the dead. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is relentless with its horror, punishing with its gameplay, and breathes new life into its classic formula. A must-buy for horror fans.
I’m a huge fan of the Resident Evil series. I used to pen fan fiction of the game as a child, and receiving the demo disc for Resident Evil 2 is one of my earliest memories of video game hype-driven joy. It’s that nostalgia that inspired my disappointment with Resident Evil 5 and 6, both of which took a hard swing to third-person action. Resident Evil spent a long time putting the classic series’ tense, survival-driven horror gameplay on the back seat in attempts to appeal to a wider audience.
Following the success of the re-release of the Resident Evil HD re-master, it appears Capcom has finally accepted that they can’t turn Resident Evil into an action series. Enter Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
