Resident Evil Village is a horror and survival game developed by Capcom. Some familiar characters from the series include Ethan Winters, Mia Winters, and Chris Redfield, along with other characters who are new and relevant to the series. It can be currently found at the Playstation and Xbox Stores. Overall, this game is well-balanced in terms of horror and survival, making it an enjoyable and great experience. The objectives and story of the game are good, too.

During the game, you play as protagonist Ethan Winters, and the overall goal of the game is to find your daughter, Rose. You meet different characters and bosses along the way that guide you to your daughter. There are also implications and problems during your challenging path to finding her.

The game has interesting characters with unique powers. They are mysterious in their own ways, making each character different from each other. The attention to detail is also fantastic, bringing more fun to the overall experience.

The locations of the game also have amazing designs. They are filled with creativity and uniqueness in their architecture. It is truly eye-opening to the players who are playing the game in high resolution.

The game is creepy and gruesome in a delightful way. It makes the game feel surreal and realistic, because you would expect the same visions to exist in reality. Some scenes make you feel scared, because you don’t know what might be coming next.

Compared to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Village is not as frightening or scary. The game could have been a little more horrifying by including more jumpscares, and they could have also tried adding scarier scenes.

Ethan Winters is also not the most interesting character. His lines are mostly boring and dull, compared to the other characters in the story. They are usually corny and unfunny, which is a letdown, considering you play as him for the entire game. It would be better if he was more charismatic and passionate, especially when he is fighting creatures and battling through a lot of pain.

All things considered, Resident Evil Village is a very interesting, scary, and enjoyable addition to the game series. It has a ton of upside, compared to its minor downsides. If you want to play a classic horror game, you should definitely give it a try. Another game you should also experience is Resident Evil 7, because it is just as good.
