Did You Know?


Although Resident Evil: Biohazard (2017) features new characters and story, references of previous installments can be found in the game:
  • The picture of Arklay mountains from Resident Evil (2002) is hung in main hall area of the Bakers' house, dated several years before 'the mansion incident' occurred.
  • Special pistol 'Albert-01' found in the last chapter is named after main antagonist Albert Wesker. Its design looks similar to his 'Samurai Edge' pistol he used in Resident Evil 5 (2009). Ironically, the pistol is used to incapacitate B.O.W.s
  • Weapon dropped from a helicopter to aid the player defeating last boss is a homage to Resident Evil (2002), where Brad Vickers tossed rocket launcher down for Jill/Chris to destroy Tyrant.
  • An article about missing people in Dulvey, Louisiana where the game takes place is written by Alyssa Ashcroft, a field reporter who first appeared in Resident Evil Outbreak (2003).
  • In 'Daughters' banned footage, the player (as Zoe) can find an article mentioning Edonia, a fictional country in Eastern Europe featured in Resident Evil 6 (2012).
  • There's also an article about survivors from Raccoon City's incident, found in Mia's search of wrecked ship. However, the player is not able to read the full article.
  • Lucas' laptop and 'Happy Birthday' room require a password to enter. Upon entering the numbers, sound effects from Resident Evil: Nemesis (1999) inventory screen can be heard.
  • In the final chapter, Ethan encounters a mercenary who introduces himself as "Redfield". Redfield is the last name of the main protagonist Chris/Claire Redfield. It is later revealed in the DLC "Not a Hero" that the helicopter belongs to Blue Umbrella, and the mercenary is indeed Chris Redfield, who had been asked by the BSAA to assist Blue Umbrella in capturing Lucas.

The Horror is back
13 April 2017 | by residentgrigoSee all my reviews

I have been a fan of the franchise since the PSX days and I liked the last 2 action focused instalments a lot. The slower paced 2 Revelation games were fine too but the overall narrative of the franchise certainly took a dive since the borderline farcical RE 4. Bringing back the series to the pure horror roots wasn't something i necessarily "needed" but getting new writers certainly was. The Fear / Spec Ops guy (the 1st western writer) certainly delivered with 7, even if he stayed fairly close to his roots. Especially with the 3rd act. The game's fairly self-contained story ended up tying way deeper into the canon than I expected too and I like the ominous conclusion. The only problem here is that the DLC and a sequel will have to answer way more questions than anymore expected. The core experience itself is best decided as the Gamecube remake played from a 1st person perspective but the game isn't as scary as advertised. The fights against the main enemies aren't hard, or that frequent, and most regular enemies are borderline pushovers. These "mold people" should have been more varied too, especially due to the higher action focus in the surprise 3rd act. Even the game's somewhat mysterious protagonist (not an avatar btw.) ends up quickly becoming an action hero in the vein of the earlier protagonists, before the days of Matrix-Ballet and QTE rock bashing. The game can be beating in 1 night long sitting too. That's how I did it and the subsequent speed run took me 3 hours. What I am trying to say that this is a RE game though and though but the last 3 shooting focused main entries were all more "fun" to play. I thus don't view this RE 7 a 3rd start for the series. "Pure" horror games as this one and pure action entries should continue side by side instead, to avoid stagnation of both play styles. I lastly appreciated the return of real gore, as the series became way too toothless in that aspect since RE 5, but core gameplay modes shouldn't have been gated behind DLC. 8,5/10
