I was really excited to play a vampire game again! I’m new to the Resident Evil games as I have only played a bit of the 4th game. Luckily, there was a story summary of the previous game included in Village so I could get the background I needed to understand this game!
Story So Far
The story is about Ethan Winter’s journey to find his daughter after his wife is killed and his daughter, Rose, is taken from him. Something about Rose is special to the vampires that live in the village which I’m guessing it has to do with his wife getting infected by a fungus in the previous game.
Vampires and Werewolves!
It did take a bit too long for the first jumpscare to happen, but from then on it’s been a fun and scary ride. The first buildup took a while by following a long narrow road and I also kept missing junpscares because I would walk through them while they triggered. But, once the first monster came, it started getting really intense!
The werewolves ambushed me in the game even on easy and they would just come up behind you without warning! I jumped several times. The character design is really interesting ad they look both human and nonhuman at the same time. Seeing the giant werewolf was also scary, I thought they were bad enough, but then the big guy came.
The Vampires are also really fun! I love the little personalities to them. I’ve only met one sister, but I do love their dialogue such as them referring to Ethan as “man-thing”. Lady Dimitrescu is really pretty and I cannot wait for her boss fight. She’s definitely intimidating being over 9 feet tall!
I’ve only had one boss fight so far with the first sister. It was really cool how she slowly turned into a crystal. I’m eager to see what the other sisters boss fights will be like as well as Lady Dimitrescu’s!
Fun Horror Game!
I definitely recommend this game if you love anything horror especially if you like vampires and werewolves. If you’ve played previous games though, I’m not sure. It’s really fun, but it’s not really a zombie game (at least not so far). I can also say it runs really well on the PS4. I haven’t had issues and it looks great!
It’s scary but not too scary. It reminds me of a good horror film where’s tension and monsters, but it doesn’t go over the top and become too nightmarish.
