Resident Evil is an excellent survival horror video game. It’s a scream worthy game. You will be left with little to no resources for emergency situations. The game allows you to craft ammo and it does so in a very efficient manner. This edition eliminates the need to create complicated plant combinations.
First-person gun-play is loud, violent, and snappy if you have enough ammo. The melee weapon could have been more useful, given the scarcity of ammunition. It feels like a butter knife for stabbing zombies. It doesn’t feel like it’s connecting, regardless of whether Capcom is trying to incite hopelessness in players. However, encounters with monsters can be intense and messy. These encounters are among the most memorable parts of the game and offer some unforgettable gaming memories. However, the boss fights with nerve-wracking bosses are a close second.
Village uses sound design to create atmosphere, rather than the usual jump scares that most horror games rely upon. This is especially true when the boss monsters are actively hunting or chasing you. It is amazing to hear Lady Dimitrescu’s positional audio as she bends through doors and wanders the halls, calling out for your help as she laughs. Castle Dimitrescu’s architecture is very ornate, with its long hallways, intricate mouldings, sculptures, rich tapestries, and sweeping staircases. Resident Evil loves their clever puzzles. There are many locked doors that you will need to unlock, just like the previous games. There are many puzzles in Village, including deviously hidden codes and fun ones that involve oil paintings. Take the time to look in every corner and crevice for clues that might be useful later.
Resident Evil Village is the best game in the series. It has a compelling story, tight gunplay, and memorable puzzles. It has its faults but they are easy to overlook as the immersive world design keeps it going. And don’t forget to breathe.
