Final Thoughts & Conclusion
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a bit tough to nail down when it comes to a recommendation. What consumers received is high quality and well-polished. Yet unless the player is a completionist looking for every hidden item realistically the game will be done in 7-10 hours. The plot itself is laser focused and the return to its horror roots is welcome. Even the length is a somewhat minor gripe as the narrative is tight and doesn’t overstay its welcome. If anything it does the opposite and leaves the player wanting more, though luckily it leaves few unanswered questions. The biggest downside comes from a few of the puzzles that come off as busywork to pad the game.
The graphics are impressive, though not overly varied as Ethan spends most of his time on the Baker estate. The controls are tight and responsive. The audio is also fantastic, this engine should be the shining example going forward. This is an easy recommendation to any horror fan, but ultimately with more content coming via the season pass, casual fans should wait for a sale. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a solid title for the Resident Evil franchise, so we are giving it our Recommended Game award. Then if they enjoy the game consider picking up the season pass. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is currently available on Steam for $59.99 or your regional equivalent. You can also get to the Deluxe Edition which includes the Resident Evil 7 Season Pass for $89.98, or get the Season Pass as DLC for $29.99.
