Resident Evil 7 offers addictive gameplay, perfect graphics and a very creepy atmosphere. Still, many users are not satisfied with the game after it received a 6.7 Metacritic score, with many players suggesting that this is a Resident Evil game in name alone.

Players are very disappointed with the game’s combat, which is not satisfying or deep enough. Fans also criticize Capcom’s decision to throw endless hordes of the same exact enemy over and over, making the game boring and predictable. They also believe that the ending is also “pretty stupid and mediocre” along with confusing.

Other players simply confess the game hasn’t hooked them. They believe there are too many indications that somehow reveal what’s going to happen next, completely killing the element of surprise.

There’s a moment where the game tells you to pull out the screwdriver, to push back against Mia, all of which is dictated by when something is about to occur; she’s about to stab, or she’s about to hit you with a chainsaw.

There are also many bugs that severely limit the gaming experience for many users. Unfortunately, there are very few workarounds available to fix these issues, which only adds to overall discontent. For example, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard doesn’t support 21:9 monitors.

Seriously crapcom, how embarassing a big company like you release a pc game in 2017 without native ultrawide resolutions, shame on you.

On the other hand, RE 7 has received very positive reviews on Steam, with thousands of players recommending the game.

RELATED STORIES YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT:

  • Writers of this article have failed to mention that the user reviews on Metacritic is in fact extremely polarized. As of today, the review of the game have a 7.5 user score on average with 721 ratings. However, 528 users rated this game positively, 157 (which is a lot) negatively, and only 36 people have mixed reviews. This means that there are a lot of people who are frustrated by the fact that this game is in 1st person (instead of traditional 3rd person of RE), and does not contain any previous RE characters, but overall this is an amazing game. Therefore, the title is very very misleading, please change.

  • I play at 21:9, and due to the game not supporting it, I’d rather just wait for a severe discount before purchasing. Too bad.
