Horror games are a difficult thing to get right. They can feel like carnival attractions, full of overblown scares, or have so little horror that they elicit nothing but eye rolls. Resident Evil 7 gets it right. It’s a scary and violent blast of survival horror that sneaks up behind you before plunging a chainsaw in your gut.
Arriving four years after the last iteration in the series, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard shifts the traditional third-person viewpoint to the first-person, while leveraging its roots to recapture the sense of dread and suspense from the earlier games. Reviews have already started rolling in, let's check what they have to say.
