if you've been waiting on pins and needles for the first signs of whether or not Resident Evil 7 sucks, you might finally have an answer. Ahead of the game's release next Tuesday, Japanese publication Famitsu's scores for Capcom's new survival horror game have hit the web.
As for the verdict? So far, so good. Famitsu's 4 reviewers scored it at 9/9/9/9, which is a pretty promising start for Biohazard. Considering the recent trajectory of the series toward the ridiculous (and awful, in the case of Resident Evil 6), and Biohazard's apparent return to the franchise's roots, this seems like a welcome sign for fans.
While I'm generally not a fan of horror games, I'm actually extremely interested in how Resident Evil 7 plays, particularly because it's such a bold shift for the series. Not just in going to a smaller scale (no bioterrorism in this one, please), but also in chucking out the traditional third person camera, it looks like Capcom really hard the feedback and made some much needed changes. On top of that, it's also the first real AAA game for virtual reality thanks to PSVR.
So I plan on braving through as much of it as I possible can. Previously, I've only played Resident Evil 1, 2, and 5 -- with the latter being one of my favorite games of last generation, and probably one of my favorite co-op titles of all time.
What do you guys think of Resident Evil 7's early review scores from Famitsu? Any of you guys planning on picking up the game?
