In Resident Evil Village (REV), players take control of Ethan Winters, who is searching for his kidnapped daughter, and finds himself in a village full of mutant creatures. REV is a first-person survival horror game that retains the series' survival horror elements, but adopts a more action-oriented gameplay style compared to its predecessor. The first-person survival horror game Resident Evil possesses a legacy of horror dating back to 1996. Featuring the return of the original protagonist, Ethan Winters, Resident Evil Village is a prequel to the series' latest installment, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.

Gameplay

The player controls Ethan Winters as he searches for his kidnapped daughter. The gameplay is a first-person survival horror game that retains the series' survival horror elements. The game adopts a more action-oriented gameplay style, as opposed to the traditional survival horror style of the series, but still features the series' iconic horror elements. The game is divided into three chapters, each with their own protagonist and setting.

Graphics

The graphics in REV are detailed. The graphics in Resident Evil Village are, as is to be expected, of high quality. The long-established staple of the series is the use of static camera angles from which players can observe the environment. This is coupled with an increased focus on detail and realism.

Information about replayability

The player can play the game again after the game has been completed. The game features a multiplayer component, called the "Invasion Mode", which is an online mode that allows up to eight players to cooperate or compete in a mode that tasks the player with escaping from a nightmarish location.

Conclusion

Resident Evil Village is a good game for people who want to experience the Resident Evil series, but don't have a PlayStation 5, as the game can be played on Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Stadia. The game has a lot of similarities to the recently released Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but is a concern.
