    • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - VR Game Review

      With Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Capcom has proven that they can still make a great game at least when they aren’t trying to destroy themselves. For many years now the Resident Evil franchise had been lacking what its older installments had, especially, after the disappointment that was Resident Evil 6 fans had given up all hope of seeing a good resident Evil game ever again. With Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Capcom has reclaimed the series back to its former glory as one of the best “survival-horror” games out there. The best part is that you can play it on the PS VR which makes Resident Evil 7: Biohazard a much more immersive experience than one could imagine – and just as terrifying.

      The Gameplay

      Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a terrifying game even without the VR so imagine how much the fright facto increases when you are really there ? A LOT! As I was playing Resident Evil 7: Biohazard I sat on the couch, moved my neck, took in the atmosphere got up, and in the next 2 or 3 minutes I was yelling my guts out. This game in VR is not for the faint of heart, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard doesn’t try to go be excessively scary or focus on the survival aspects of the game, it just somehow finds the perfect blend for us to enjoy. It’s the first game on VR which actually lasts more than a couple of hours and feels like a complete game with a story.

      Story-wise, Resident Evil 7 dials things back to some degree, keeping missions entirely claustrophobic and insinuate until the later stages, and soon thereafter things turn more intense. Be that as it may, the story works in a considerably more authentic manner than Resident Evils 5 and 6, and incorporates a couple of awesome turns. Keenly, there isn't much exchange in the game, however videos and flashbacks fill in the crevices astonishingly.

      The Controls

      The default control framework is somewhat changed for PS VR: pushing the right stick left or right pivots your character in 30-degree augmentations, and you can kind of strafe at an edge by moving your head. When you figure out how to allow the right stick to sit unbothered when defied by mutants in the VR world, and to focus on your headshots by just moving your make a beeline for point, everything clicks.

      Playing in VR includes a magnificent additional level of immersiveness – foundations which are dull on a TV screen are uncovered in all their rankness in VR, and the capacity to jab your head into things implies you regularly spot objects you would some way or another miss. We'd most likely suggest handling the more exploratory groupings in VR, despite the fact that we did effectively go up against some manager fights in VR, which likewise had additional effect – it's practically difficult to abstain from ducking when a mutant's hurls his deadly ooze at you.

      The Graphics

      Unlike other VR games, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was made to use all the benefits of the current gen technology to deliver some of the finest looking details, ambient occlusion, depth of field and overall provide us with a gory visually stunning experience. Though when playing the game on PSVR the graphics do take a hit but not anything that would standout or reduce the game immersiveness.


      The Good
      • Truly terrifying at every moment
      • Visually Stunning
      • VR enhances immersiveness drastically
      • Amazing Story
      The Bad
      • Some enemies are more annoying rather than scary to deal with it
      Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is probably the best VR game to come out on the PSVR or any headset for that matter. With great visuals, scares, controls and story Resident Evil 7: Biohazard gets a full 10/10 from us.
