Resident Evil Village is a genuinely engrossing and increasingly combat-heavy continuation of the Ethan Winters story.

Resident Evil Village pulls the best bits from the series’ past and recombines them into something fresh and surprising. It can’t maintain that momentum for its entire run, but Village’s heights are among the best in Resident Evil’s illustrious history.

Village is an intelligent reintroduction of the best action elements of Resident Evil. Though it captures some of the same things that made RE7 such a breath of fresh air (or maybe rancid, stale, mold-filled air, but in a good way), Village evolves to become its own unique creature. It makes you wonder what beautifully twisted fiend Resident Evil might mutate into in the future.

Village is absolutely beautiful thanks to the tricks of the RE Engine. Horror fans will love literally every aspect of it, but the series seems to be trending further away from a Resident Evil game outside of a name drop or character inclusion. It’s great to see Capcom continuing to evolve Resident Evil more towards a true horror experience, but it needs to stay away from trying to do too much. Despite a few concerns, Resident Evil Village is one of the best horror game experiences out there.

Resident Evil Village has managed to keep a series that has been going for 25 years feel new. The combat is satisfying, the puzzles are well-orchestrated, and it looks incredible.

Village doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to horror, but a consistent rollout of new weapons and tools makes it hard to walk away from these terrors.

60

Resident Evil Village boils all the best and worst parts of the franchise down into an eclectic, though uneven experience.

Lady Dimitrescu’s towering presence is just the tip of the iceberg of what Resident Evil Village offers. This game takes everything you know about the iconic horror series and dials it up to eleven!

I don’t think Resident Evil Village is going to be very divisive per se: I suspect the reaction will be generally positive. But it’s going to definitely spark some conversations as to how it stacks up against the current darling of RE7, and it has a long hill to climb to match its success financially. As for me, I think it complements it quite well, and then some.

Resident Evil Village is a great followup to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard that will delight any horror fan looking for a new game to scare the [censored] out of them. The only downside is that its increased focus on combat can feel a little jarring, especially when playing at lower difficulties.

Play RE7 first. If you want more of the same, lower your general expectations and revel in RE Village’s improved gunplay. If not, skip.

A fun marriage of the the previous game’s tension, with action roots plucked from the rest of the series. It’s a rollicking good time that offers plenty of replay value for fans, although it loses that sense of threat at a certain point during play.

That’s the cycle that Resident Evil Village keeps chasing: the hesitation, anticipation, and payoff that make both action and horror such powerful draws. It’s definitely an action game, and despite all the shooting, it’s also a horror game. And while it induces both creeping dread and righteous fury, its biggest triumph is in not-so-quietly arguing that horror and action aren’t that different after all. They’re both just ways to get your blood pumping

Resident Evil Village is a good game worth playing, and I think it’s very much a solid numbered entry in the series even if Capcom doesn’t want to call it one. But by transparently blending elements of 7 and 4, two of the most dramatic overhauls in series history, it feels less noteworthy than either. As such, the way you feel about it is likely to come down to how you feel about Resident Evil overall.
