Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:
"Throughout its long history, the Resident Evil series has continued to transform itself. After originally beginning with fixed cameras and plenty of horror mixed with a bit of camp, Resident Evil 4 saw the shift to an over-the-shoulder more action based take on the series that continued to grow in scale with each new entry before Capcom took perhaps the biggest change the series saw so far four years ago with Resident Evil 7: biohazard focusing almost entirely on horror and bringing players right into the action in a first-person perspective.
Now with Resident Evil Village Capcom is once again taking a bit of a different approach as the company has now chosen to blend these elements together. With solid levels of horror in a first-person perspective combined with some of the camp that the original entries in the series were known for and more action than before, is this a worthwhile entry in this ever changing series?"
