Resident Evil Village review
Resident Evil Village is a survival horror game developed and published by Capcom. The sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (2017), players control Ethan Winters, who is searching for his kidnapped daughter; after a fateful encounter with Chris Redfield, he finds himself in a village filled with mutant creatures. While Village maintains the Resident Evil series' survival horror elements, the game adopts a more action-oriented gameplay style compared to its predecessor.
Players play as Ethan Winters, who is searching for his kidnapped daughter, Mia. Resident Evil Village features an over-the-shoulder camera view instead of the first-person perspective seen in Resident Evil 7. The inventory management mechanic is very similar to that of Resident Evil 4, featuring a briefcase and the ability to move and rotate items for better storage space. Players can buy supplies, weapons, items from a merchant, called the Duke. The players can also hunt animals in the village and have them cooked into dishes by the Duke. Eating side dishes allows the player to gain certain advantages such as decreasing the damage taken while blocking. Players can manually save the game progress by locating and using typewriters, which replaces the tape recorders seen in Resident Evil 7.
Resident Evil Village is a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game with a 1080p and 60 frames-per-second rate. The game's visuals are notably different from that of Resident Evil 7, with an emphasis on snow-covered landscapes.
