    A return to form in a different perspective

    Imagine if Resident Evil 1 starred a nobody and took place in first person. That's the simplest way of describing RE7. And that's a good thing! RE7's main plot is far removed from the usual Umbrella shenanigans and deals with issues much closer to home. In fact you are on a plantation in Louisiana cut off from the world trying to rescue your wife from a crazy family. It's more than that of course but that would be spoiling a lot of surprises. The game really plays like RE1 with bizarre puzzles, ammo sponge bosses, creepy enemies, item conservation and limits on what you can carry but there's modern touches too, like no limits on how often you can save (but saving is limited by location and special auto save checkpoints) and having a bit more mobility. In 2D this game is scary and graphic. Probably the most extreme visually speaking. Decay in all forms throughout the game. In VR the game really shines. And it's the entire experience too. You can aim and shoot with your head and lean around corners without exposing yourself. And everything literally is in your face now. If you are squeamish VR might push you. Game takes about 10 hours to beat. Usual first time length for an RE. But since this is the gold edition there is all the DLC to explore. Not A Hero I hear is the best but I haven't gotten a chance to play them all yet. In time... Really I have no complaints about this package or game. RE7 was a much needed shot of creativity to the series while returning back to what we loved about RE games in the first place: survival horror.

    Return of Resi

    The last few entries into the Resident Evil franchise have anything from mediocre to downright dismal. Thankfully, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard has broken free of this trend. Let start with VR. This is one of the best games for virtual reality to date and this mode is included at no cost. This isn't a lazy port to VR either. RE7 feels like it was designed around this concept instead of shoehorning it in at the end. There are more than a few truly terrifying moments in this game - even better, Resi 7 doesn't rely on jump scares for its horror. The claustrophobic and eerie atmosphere make every moment tense. One thing I'd like to mention is that this game made me feel physically sick, (dizzy and nauseous) especially while watching someone else play, VR mode fixed this entirely for me. There are other people who have also experienced this so keep that in mind when purchasing.

    Modern take on an old school genre.

    Not only is it refreshing in terms of graphics, story and characters, but the series takes its first gameplay change since RE4. Similar to Outlast, the first person mode really makes for a challenging and frightening experience, especially when playing in VR. By itself, the main story plays out quite satisfactory but ultimately the Gold Edition answers most, if not all questions concerning the motives, conclusions and whereabouts of any characters and plot threads introduced in the base game. Of course, the DLC also adds a variety of gameplay changes and elements to take on that'll create a new challenge for even those who've mastered the vanilla campaign.

    It is like being in one of those 80s text adventure games. Except you can see the door that you try to open and it is turns out to be locked. Then you realize you need the key from your inventory and use it on the door to unlock it. Too bad it doesn't use the move controllers for a more immersive dual hand experience. Also, some of the included DLC is not VR capable. Turing is a but nausea inducing especially the default "blink" or "stutter" turning. There is an option to go smooth (better for me but not quite nausea free). Which turning option is better depends on the individual though.

    Love the resident evil series games. This one is a complete newly experience that doesnt go deep into raccoon police department story but behind a sadistic family who undergoes a demonic presence of a little girl. The monsters are not zombies which i didnt like. I mean resident evil suppose to have zombies right?. The creature are scary looking but only few creatures were in this game. Overall this gold edition was what i looking for with the dlc. Was worth the wait i guess and price match it to gamestop. If you are a horror fan of Resident Evil games start with this one. RE 1 then past 5 and 6 RE 4 is good too.

    I've played this game in VR mode, so that is what I'm basing this short review off of. The game does a good job of being scary in the same way the first one did 2 decades ago. The VR actually adds to the experience and I don't think I will ever forget the dread I felt the first time I had to walk into the darkness. The controls work really good and the game does a good job of restricting your view as you move faster, keeping the camera from making me feel queasy. If you have PSVR and want to be scared, play this game. Made the purchase of the headset feel totally worth it.

    A return to greatness for the series! As a huge proponent of Virtual Reality and owner of over 150 VR games RE7 remains among my top 3 games. I've never been a huge fan of horror games or movies because of the disconnect of watching on a flat screen. Playing RE7 in VR felt like I was inside the Baker house, the immersion level is incredible. I was genuinely terrified at times, the hair on the back of my arms standing up in anticipation of what atrocity I would run across next. Perfectly executed, a true masterpiece that I will return to again and again.

    I did not make it very far into the game before I had to turn it off. The movement controls for VR made me incredibly nauseous. However, I have watched the GameGrumps play through as well as some others online and I look forward to playing more normally (without VR). So far the beginning is a little spooky, and does look good considering while wearing the VR headset. I hadn't reached any serious jump scares yet, but I'm interested in seeing how it plays out.

    After waiting forever for this game to go on a sale I finally picked it up and wish I had purchased it right away at full price. This is a terrifying experience in VR and one of the strongest examples of why VR will continue to grow as a platform. Both flat and VR modes feature superb graphics, especially on the PS4 Pro. The story itself is somewhat predictable but enjoyable overall. If you have PSVR you must own this game.

    Although it retains a little bit of the Capcom cheesiness of previous Resident Evils, RE7 is much more immersive and terrifying than previous entries. I've played most of the previous entries in the series and found this one to be close to the top of them all. Since this contains almost all of the DLC released for it, it's an extremely good deal. The DLC is all on-disc, so there's no codes to redeem.

    Game was great when playing it on my 65'' OLED but it turned out to be awesome with the PSVR. This game is not for the faint of heart in VR I am really glad that the developers went back to their roots for this game because it was like the resident evil 1 and 2 games. I absolutely loved the gameplay, story and the jump scares . $20 for the complete gold edition is a no brainer.

    This game really messed with my head the first time I played through it. It is scary, strategic and above all, it is survival horror because I felt like I was surviving playing this game. I am a huge fan of the series and genre so for me this was not even a question to buy. BONUS: The Gold Edition has all the DLC which are extremely fun and they come at a savings by buying it as an all in one package.

    5 and 6 are more like TPS and worriers game franchise. it is no longer like a horror& surviving game. I am glad to see the RE7 is returning to its origins. However, there still remain some confusions for me. Who is Eason? How could he send an order to umbrella? Chris works for Umbrella again? Is CAPCOM rebooting re series? Wait to see what is in RE8.

    I highly recommend this game to fans of resident evil and survival horror genre. Although, I personally like third person perspective like all previous resident evil games but I still enjoyed this game with first person perspective. Environment is intense and always keep you on the edge of your seat. With VR support, the overall experience is superb.

    Personally, I think this one of the scariest games that I've have ever played. While I missed the third person perspective from previous Resident Evil games, the first person view really allows to increase the tension as you across a dark hallway into the unknown. By the way, try playing this with PSVR if you really don't want to sleep at night.

    I bought this game when I bought my PS VR. It was so amazing in VR you feel like you are in the RE universe. Capcom made the game so good that you don’t need to have VR to enjoy it. This is a must play game with or without VR. Resident Evil is a franchise that redefined the horror game genre and 25 years later they did it again.

    Even though the first person is a shift in the recent trend of RE games, that does not mean a bad thing. Where the last three ventured futher into action style, this one goes back to horror roots attempting to build tension and suspense along with the story. If you are a fan at all this is a must.
