I won’t go too in depth here because I feel that this game surprised me so much, that I don’t want to spoil it for others. I’ve been a huge fan of the Resident Evil game series since its beginning. After 6 I was left satisfied at a storyline that sort of closed out. 7 brings a fresh take on the franchise that is so much better than zombies.
This game scared the hell out of me at times, gave me anxiety, and had me so involved in the mystery of the story that I couldn’t put it down. If I claim that this is the best of the franchise, I don’t think I’m exaggerating. It IS the best one. The switch to a first person perspective, and the tweaking of inventory items is a loveable change.
With barely any ties to the other games at all this really does feel like a new adventure, and I can’t wait to see where they go with it. There is DLC coming out in the Spring, and I’ll be sure to check that out because I was left with a question or two.
My main question is a big spoiler, so skip this paragraph if you don’t want to know…. Maybe someone can give me a theory on it… Was that really Chris at the end? I don’t think so, because 1) he looked different, 2) he referred to himself as his last name, and 3) He was enemies with Wesker, so why name a gun after him? (If you missed the name of the weapon he throws you it is called “albert”.)
End spoilers… Anyway, overall the game gets 5 out of 5 sCrypt coffins in my book. It is the first game in a while that has really impressed me, and the introduction of all new characters was a relief.
