Review: Resident Evil 7 biohazard

Let me tell you about this evil right here…

First, I’m just going to point out that I had a friend of mine sitting beside me the whole time I was playing so I wouldn’t feel too scared.

Here is the launch trailer of the game. This trailer still gives me goosebumps.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard is a 1st person horror game that is way different from the older Resident Evil games and I couldn’t get through the first 5 minutes of the game without feeling like a pansy.

The game starts out with the main character, Ethan Winters, watching a video from his wife, Mia Winters, who’s been missing for 3 years. In a message that Mia sent, she tells Ethan, “I want you to pick me up.” and Ethan travels to Darvey, Louisiana to the Baker Farm to find her. Once he gets there, this is where the game starts and the game will give you a little tutorial on how to run, crouch, etc. The Bakers are clearly insane and they’re like monsters in human skin at first until you keep playing and find out more secrets about them.

This game made me not at ease. I was always tensed up and my anxiety just skyrocketed. In terms of visuals, they are actually really gorgeous and the graphics are always good. The ambient sounds and flickering lighting made me so paranoid, like something is going to pop out at me, especially using the flashlight, because you can’t really see out of your peripheral vision.

If you guys played the demo, Resident Evil 7: Beginning Hour, you basically replay the video tape part of that demo in the game so it can be a little less nerve-wrecking because you already played that part.

I love horror games in general and this one definitely cuts the cake for me. This was so scary and just plain nerve-wrecking. My heart couldn’t stop beating, I was always on guard. Overall, I loved this game and I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good horror game.

What do you guys think of this game?
