Resident Evil Village Review

Reviewed by Tristan Ogilvie on PlayStation 5. Also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox, PC, and Stadia.
"Roaming the streets of Resident Evil Village is like visiting a disturbing and deadly Disneyland, where every attraction is a house of horrors. I got just as big a thrill out of revelling in its frenzied violence as I did retracing my steps through the gradually revealed recesses of its sizable village setting to uncover the darkest story secrets of its monstrous main cast. Boss fights are a bit of a letdown but the great variety of enemies throughout keeps things tense, especially on Hardcore mode. The fact that it's very much a throwback to the fast-paced action of Resident Evil 4 also means it largely takes a step back from the slow-burn scares of Resident Evil 7's excellent opening hours, which may well disappoint those who prefer more psychological dread to blowing off heads. But if you have an itch for action-heavy survival-horror, then Resident Evil Village will scratch it like a fistfull of Lady Dimitrescu's freakish fingernails."



  • This game easily has the best night vision gameplay I've ever seen wish the whole game was able to play it that way

  • “Boss fights are a little bit of a let down.” No. They really aren’t.

  • Played thru RE7 multiple times in both ways, with VR and without. VR makes a big difference with the jump scares and tone of the game. Wish VR mode was included in Village.

  • This is a game where you wake up after being escorted by guards, cook food, explore ancient ruins for treasure and slay a dragon.

  • 9/10, no way it's an 8. Played it through twice and it's way higher than 8.

  • For a horror game, this was by far one of the best. But as a Resident Evil game, it felt more like a kin to Silent Hill than a Biological Monstrosity apolocalypse. Idk, maybe I'm just too use to Zombies, Mr.X, and other bio terrors.

    • Wouldn't call it a Masterpiece. The game is too short, The boss difficulty is meh, and The game is always jumping in-between the lines of Action and Horror, therefore the game also lacks consistency. It deserves the 8/10

  • The game is brilliant it has a lot of scares and a descent amount of action to balance it. It is much bigger in scale than 7 so its logical to have more action. It successfully pays homage to four tylee of horror Lady D is victorian vampire Beneviento is poltergeist type horror moreu is lovecraftian style aquatic and karl is Frankenstein steampunk type . A lot of work went into this game and its variety is amazing 9.5/10 easily

  • This game was a 7-8. The game was just okay. Some segments of the village felt quite stale and empty, specially during halfway of the game. Besides Lady D the rest of the villains are not all that interesting,and the ending was decent at best. Nothing mindblowing, but there's certainly some fun to be had

  • Game felt like Castlevania meets Resident Evil, both of my favorite franchises of all time! Only reason I'd give this game a 7 is because how quickly the castle and the Dimitrescu fam is over right in the damn beginning, pretty much the only part of the game that feels like RE.. Come on Capcom give us Dimitrescu DLC!!

  • Definitely game of the year for me. Very similar to RE7 in terms of gameplay mechanics and has a flavor of RE4 added to it. If you enjoyed playing either of those, get this game.

  • ah yes, showing major lategame content and even new game plus exclusive content in the review, never change ign.

  • Not a fan of the first person RE games, I'm going to wait till the price drops to get this one. And the "southern fried psychopaths" from RE 7 were not genuinely scary, they were just outright annoying. The old lady jump scared me once when you go up the stairs and she comes crashing through the window, other than that it was more of just dodging and avoiding them to progress the story

  • The first player view is a game killer for me.

  • 8/10 is fair tbh. Lady Di is cool but not half as memorable as Jack Baker, Mr. X or Nemesis. The difficulty settings are unbalanced, because Standard is easy and Hardcore is way too punishing, specially at the beginning.

  • My favorite RE since 4 easily. 7 set a great template for what a first person RE experience could be despite being boring at times but this one kind of went the route of 4 and cranked the crazy up to 11. It still managed to stay in a realm of possibility more believable than even Leon being able to complete his insane mission in 4(especially when you take Ethan’s regeneration plot armor). All in all it was worth the wait. Glad to see my favorite series back on track.

  • Nothing like Depression Simulator 2020: 8/10

  • Your killing werewolves, vampires, monsters, and an angel. This game should be called Supernatural the Village In stead of Resident Evil the Village. Some body call Sam and Dean!!!
