Resident Evil Village

The next Resident Evil is releasing on the 7th of May which is just around the corner. It continues the story of Resident Evil 7 which was surprisingly good.

Will any of you be playing it?

I will absolutely be playing it as I loved Resi 7. There’s a PS demo out but I want to wait for the full release!

Definitely want to but am going to wait for a bit of a price drop. Thanks to you though, I did discover that there’s a Steam sale on the franchise at the moment (ends this evening I think) and I grabbed RE7 for R155. Eventually - it had been on my want list for ages.

Now waiting for the RE2 and RE3 remakes to go on deep sale too.

Decent IGN video review:

Or the text version, if you prefer:

Sitting at 85 on Metacritic (PC) at the moment:

And at 87 on OpenCritic:

I started it this weekend. Compared to 7, it seems a bit more action heavy and has less of the tension and scariness. Some story elements are definitely surprising, which makes me curious to see where this going. In fact, tonally, this game seems all over the place. Quite a departure from the more focused Resi 7.

I finished it this weekend. I loved it.

The story and action all come together in a satisfying manner. It still doesn’t have that razor sharp focus of Resi 7, and in many ways it feels more like a traditional Resi game.

That said, the things I liked from 7 are still here, and generally improved upon, but with a heavier emphasis on action.
