Resident Evil Village review
The Resident Evil series is a hugely successful franchise, with its latest installment, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, selling over 7.1 million copies as of April 2018. It was revealed at the PlayStation 5 reveal event in June 2020 and was released on May 7, 2021, for Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Stadia. Resident Evil Village is the sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (2017).
The gameplay is very similar to Resident Evil 4, in which players can use a first-person perspective. The inventory management mechanic is similar to Resident Evil 4, featuring a briefcase and the ability to move and rotate items for better storage space. Players can buy supplies, weapons, items from a merchant, called the Duke. The players can also hunt animals in the village and have them cooked into dishes by the Duke. Eating side dishes allows the player to gain certain advantages such as decreasing the damage taken while blocking.
The graphics in Resident Evil Village are very impressive, with each village being fully explorable and the Duke's kitchen being fully explorable.
