Resident Evil VII: Biohazard

Resident Evil 7

Seventh major installment in the cult series of survival horrors created by Capcom and launched in year 1996 on the PlayStation console. Subsequent parts of this long-standing series concentrate on a battle the humanity wages against a deadly virus which transforms those it infects into bloodthirsty monsters. The players accompany several characters who appeared in various installments of Resident Evil over the years as well as in many side installments. The game, being faithful to tradition, shows the action in third person perspective and the gameplay is based on exploration, fighting enemies and solving occasional logical puzzles. The game has a horror atmosphere which, across subsequent installments in the series, was gradually reduced in favor of action elements. Resident Evil 7 combines the best aspects of the old and new installments and is the first main Resident Evil game created for the eight generation consoles.

Resident Evil VII: Biohazard for PlayStation 4 is an action-adventure survival horror. Developed by Capcom from Japan, this is the seventh instalment of the popular series which was born in 1995 as Resident Evil.

This is a combination of classic survival horror elements and modern ideas. Therefore, the title creates an uncanny atmosphere, and makes you fight unequal battles while always being short on ammunition. Interestingly, third-person perspective has been replaced by first-person view, and the creators introduced sequences focused primarily on exploration.

Resident Evil VII: Biohazard put out on PlayStation 4 offers support for PlayStation VR. This, plus the fact that the PS4 edition looks a bit better than the Xbox One version, may be the reason for many players to opt for the PS4 edition.

It is worth mentioning that soon after announcing this project, the creators published a teaser called Beginning Hour which contains an alternative piece of gameplay. This short adventure was created to indicate the direction the developers took.

Developed by one of Capcom’s studios, Resident Evil VII: Biohazard for Xbox One is an action-adventure survival horror.

The previous instalment – Resident Evil 6 – was not warmly-received by the players and did not receive critical acclaim. Focusing on action elements, instead of emphasising horror and survival aspects inherent to the series, occasioned bitter criticism. Therefore, the seventh instalments returns to the franchise’s roots. The title features the first-person perspective and focuses on evoking the feeling of unease and terror. This does not mean, however, that all you do is sneak behind enemies’ backs and avoid confrontation. The title stays faithful to the series’ traditions – battles are numerous and very brutal.

Resident Evil VII: Biohazard for Xbox One looks the least attractive, but this does not mean it looks bad. The visuals are decent, but not as good as on other platforms.

Resident Evil VII: Biohazard for PC / Windows is an action-adventure survival horror. Gameplay of the two former instalments of this incredibly-popular series switched from thrilling to rather dynamic and impressively-looking. The seventh instalment, however, returns to the series' roots.

Still, this does not mean that the creators from one of Capcom's studios went old-school all the way. The developers chose the most important survival horror elements, such as a heavy atmosphere, the difficulty, and always-too-scarce ammunition, and then blended it with modern elements, like the first-person perspective and extensive exploration sequences.

Resident Evil VII: Biohazard was announced in 2016 on E3 expo where the fans and press gave a warm welcome to the change of perspective and emphasis on horror elements.

The PC edition surely looks the most attractive, as Capcom implemented some options unavailable in console versions. However, unlike the PS4 edition, the title published on PC does not support VR devices.
