Resident Evil 7 biohazard is the next major entry in the renowned Resident Evil series and sets a new course for the franchise as it leverages its roots and opens the door to a truly terrifying horror experience. A dramatic new shift for the series to first person view in a photorealistic style powered by Capcom’s new RE Engine, Resident Evil 7 delivers an unprecedented level of immersion that brings the thrilling horror up close and personal.
Set in modern day rural America and taking place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil® 6, players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective. Resident Evil 7 embodies the series’ signature gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago; meanwhile, a complete refresh of gameplay systems simultaneously propels the survival horror experience to the next level. The Resident Evil® 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo, portrays events leading up to the main game and ties directly into the impactful PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo first shown at E3 2015. In the new teaser demo, the player awakens inside a dilapidated cottage on an ominous plantation mansion. Can they make it out alive?
Terrifying fans at events across the globe last year, the PlayStation VR “KITCHEN” tech demo was developed utilizing the RE Engine’s VR oriented tools, and is the foundation on which the talented Resident Evil team has crafted the immersive horror experience in Resident Evil 7. Powered by the RE Engine in tandem with industry leading audio and visual technologies, Resident Evil 7 is poised to deliver a disturbingly realistic experience that will define the next era in horror entertainment.

I had played all resident evil games, but this one is too amazing. It is much more like a horror game. When I started to play it I almost fell off the chair when that old man jumped through a wall. Please try this game if you're not scared of jump scares. Definitely recommend this game. Best game of starting 2017 year.
Would highly recommend. Even though I had some performance issues in certain parts of the game, overall it runs very well and is a fantastic game. Well made thrills that would make any horror survival junkies hours on hours of pure Resident Evil enjoyment. Well worth the buy for Resident Evil fans, and anyone else who considers himself as a horror survival player.
After Resident Evil 6, I was incredibly sceptical of the franchise's ability to survive the convoluted, big budget apocalypse they created. And boy, was I wrong! The endearingly titled Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was really a return to their survival horror roots. Even with the new point of view, I still feel like I'm playing a Resident Evil game. Environments are as beautiful and full character as the fixed camera angles and pre-rendered backgrounds from the original instalments. I would have loved to see more complex puzzles and riddles, but the DLC delivered on my wish and briefly quenched that thirst for something more intellectual. The story is small scale, almost COZY, allowing you to really dive into what happened to this house and family. Combat feels GOOD, I have played both in and out of VR. While both are immersive and smooth, aiming with VR gives you an advantage since the direction of your head is where the cross-hair is. Unfortunately, I experienced motion sickness with VR, but I was stubborn by choosing "smooth turn" on, instead of the recommended numbered degree rotations where the screen view cuts to the direction you chose. Floating limbs and lacking cut scenes were also a downfall playing in VR, but again, I think it was to decrease the chance of motion sickness. The game encourages you to replay and rewards you for meeting goals or completing challenges. I am very eager for the remaining release of the DLC "Banned Footage Tapes" and to see what the future of the franchise holds. As a long time Resident Evil fan, this game won me back over, 100%.
Resident Evil 7 was quite a surprise! At first, I was shocked to see this series jumping to the first-person perspective in very dark environments, but this and lack of zombies aside, it's much more "Resident Evil" than 5 and 6. I highly recommend to turn off the HUD and aiming reticle for the best experience and it encourages exploration. Some players are also wondering about length. It heavily depends on how quick you play. I finished the game in 14 hours with all HUD turned off but some people finished it in 10. Personally, I would say that it WILL be worth the full-price purchase once the free story DLC releases this spring.
Just completed it really enjoyed it, will say it's my third best in the series. The thing I will say though is I wish it's stayed more horror, once you got past the first battle of the story you grow into a powerhouse with all the guns etc the fear is gone I didn't get scared at all. The graphics and audio were top quality especially the lighting. The voice acting was also very well done for an RE game. Looking forward to the DLC now and hoping the remake of Resi 2 adds first person view very welcome change to the series. 10/10
