if you enjoy the newer first person direction of re7, you will likely enjoy re village. re village is gorgeous and experiments with and regularly rebalances its combination of horror and action throughout. while there are distinct game areas in village and overall progression is fairly linear, players are often rewarded for exploring in optional areas and revisiting places you completed earlier.
i have seen some people pitch this game as 're4 meets re7.' and that isn't a half bad (if simple) description. the perspective of re7 is obviously carried over to village, but a lot of the environmental design and atmospheric influence of re4 can be felt here as well.
i've had a lot of fun with this game. i just finished my 4th playthrough, having so far played on casual , normal, and village of shadows difficulties, and i plan to play it some more still. like in the re3 remake, completing challenges during the story earns you points you can spend to unlock things like concept art, figures, additional weapons, infinite ammo, and the mercenaries mode.
not sure if this will get paid dlc, but at the price i bought this (about $40 usd) it is definitely worth it.
4.5 stars overall
