Resident Evil 7 grounds itself in elements that made the original great while still indulging in a risky new shift in style that both helps and hurts the beloved formula in equal measure.
With one of the creepiest single settings since the Spencer Mansion and an enticingly bizarre mystery to unravel, this is the most fun Resident Evil game in years.
The atmosphere in Resident Evil 7 is the strongest the series has seen in a long time, and that’s owed entirely to the eerie Dulvey Mansion, to which the player character Ethan has been summoned by a cryptic email from his missing wife.
Ethan hunts for his wife who is held captive by the hillbilly Dulvey family. Dealing with the dysfunctional and disgusting family poses a threat to Ethan.
