Bought Resident Evil 7 a couple days back, beat it about 15 minutes ago.
I give it a solid 9/10. If you are hesitant to buy it because it’s first person, an “Outlast Clone”, not like the 1st one, etc, I recommend you just buy it anyways. You won’t regret it. If you’re doing it on PS4 like I am, I HIGHLY recommend buying a VR headset. It will take the entire experience to a whole new level.

I… Honestly, I was kinda blown away. This game runs circles around its competition, and it even beats out all its own predecessors too. Top notch atmosphere, amazing lighting, great gameplay, and a fantastic story all around. My biggest complaint, I’d hafta say, is that it began to rely too heavily on action/suspense towards the end and less on survival/horror/suspense. However, it makes up for that by making every boss fight quite memorable and not at all very easy.
I feel like they maybe focused a litttllleee too much on Jack, but, he was a very well done antagonist (and one of the best characters too) so I can let that slide I think.
The twists the story takes, and how it all ties together neatly at the end are just great, it leaves little to no questions unanswered. Well. There is one or two I still have. Maybe I missed it, but-
