Return to form?
Resident Evil 7 is just two days away from release, and fans are understandably very excited. The game promises to be a return to form for a venerated series that has been slipping in the estimation of its fans for a few years now, and also aims to bring the Resident Evil series back to its survival horror roots.
PurePlayStation have posted a review for Resident Evil 7, and as per them, the game is all it promises to be. Most notably, it looks like the game will provide the kind of scares we expect it to in spades, moving away from the action-oriented gameplay the the series has shifted toward in recent years. “From spine-tingling terror to unabashed disgust, the scares are here in mushy buckets,” says the review. “Angles, darkness, lighting, dialogue, voice acting, sounds, and atmosphere will contribute to the horror and confusion.”
However, according to the review, the VR mode of Resident Evil 7 is a little disappointing, most of all because the visuals apparently take a hit. “The graphics took a notable hit and cutscenes were relegated to a screen in front of you,” the review says.
Our very own impressions of Resident Evil 7 will be up on the site soon enough, so stay tuned.
