RESIDENT EVIL 7 REVIEW: A BOLD AND TERRIFYING RETURN TO FORM
The seventh entry in the series, which launches tomorrow, similarly alters the formula in dramatic ways. Its measured pace and focus on exploration harkens back the originalResident Evil, but a new first-person perspective and stunningly detailed visuals makes for one of the most vicious and powerful horror experiences ever created. It maintains the best parts of the series — a methodical, brutal form of horror combined with a tense and challenging take on survival — and grafts them onto something that feels modern and new.
And while the more recent entries in the series, in particular the disappointing Resident Evil 6, focused on action and gunplay at the expense of scares, RE7 does the opposite. Rest easy: Resident Evil is terrifying again.
