Resident Evil Village is a horror survival game from the first-person point of view that was first released by Capcom in May 2021. The game is a sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and it continues the storyline started in the previous installment. Resident Evil Village is available for popular systems – PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Windows, and Xbox (Series X, Series S, and One). Those who want to install the game on Windows should have about 15 GB of storage space on their computers.

Surviving is not an easy task

As it was mentioned, the storyline of the game started in the installment released in 2017. In the game, you play as Ethan Winters who is a father in search of his kidnapped daughter. After a series of events, the main character appears in a village that is crawling with all kinds of creepy mutants. The goal is to survive and take the needed action to proceed in the game. The first-person perspective of Resident Evil Village creates an intense atmosphere and all the monsters you run into are as terrifying as ever. In addition to mutants, there is a group of people along with the former hero of the franchise, Chris Redfield, that tries to sabotage Ethan and make sure that he cannot escape this terrible situation that he found himself in.

Compared to the predecessors, the game is more focused on shooting and action. There are more enemies attacking you at once and fewer moments of sheer suspense and silent creepiness. When it comes to graphics, there are plenty of interesting characters and environments. You will find yourself in the most interesting places, such as the vampire lady’s castle, Heisenberg’s factory, and more.

The controls won’t surprise any Resident Evil fans. Those who haven’t played any installments should definitely spend some time learning controls, as you have to act fast in the crucial moments and not mess things up. The replay value of the game is surely quite high because there are plenty of secret treasures for you to find and quests to embark upon. You won’t be able to see everything that this game offers if you play it through just once.

More action and less suspense

As opposed to the previous game, Resident Evil Village brings you way more action, which is something that some players enjoy while others find a bit too much. There are plenty of puzzle box environments for the main character to get through while the gloomy and sinister graphics keep you on the edge of your seat. From the first moments in the village, the game is immersive and makes sure that you don’t have a moment to relax. Overall, it’s definitely a good continuation of the series and it remains true to its origins.

Pros:
  • Detailed locations and beautiful lighting
  • An abundance of scary and creepy situations
  • Available for all popular platforms
  • Plenty of side quests and an open world to explore
Cons:
  • The sets seem too dark at some moments
  • Minor bugs
