Here we go folks, another Resident Evil title. Ever since the sixth title hit the shelves our hopes and dreams were extinguished: replay-ability, graphics, story and characters; the entire title went to shit. I don’t care who you are: the sixth, and for some, the fifth title of the Resident Evil series, just flopped; there’s no way around it guys and gals. We just have to accept it and move on.
Thankfully we have the seventh title of Resident Evil to go to! Before the game hit the shelves we had the pleasure of playing the beta version, which in turn is actually the prologue to game. It was still creepy as hell, and even then, the prologue had various endings to it. So one can only imagine how RE7 can pan out at the beginning of the game.
SPOILER ALERT: SOME SPOILERS MIGHT APPEAR HERE: So here you have it, Resident Evil VII; you’re playing at Ethan, who is searching for his wife, Mia, which in turn leads him to the Baker Family ranch. However it shows that they are not who they appear to be….
Upon even playing just the prologue I can tell that the staff of Resident Evil want to go back to their roots: scaring people beyond belief. And that’s how the game goes: you can’t tell what is going to happen around the next corner. It is even shown that the game has an AI where no matter what, every time you re-load the game will be different.
You have the pen-ultimate jump scare, involving story and intriguing characters; Resident Evil VII: Biohazard has established enough amounts of story to intrigue just the beginning of players. But that’s not all; during the game you are able to grab various items to help you create certain things that will help you combat the various ‘hordes’ that will appear to you.
Sure you are able to get a hold of a handgun early on, however it is shown that physical combat helps against enemies; and it is shown that sometimes it helps more than just shooting a gun. Beyond crafting physical items, you have to fight against various monsters to keep said items in order to fight against the Baker Family….but that’s all we’ll say here as we don’t won’t to give away too much.
Resident Evil VII: Biohazard is now available on all platforms.
