Playing through this now, I’m not a big Resident Evil guy but this is gonna be my favorite I think. Love love love the graphics, they’ve got a photo realistic quality if that makes sense. Looks amazing with raytracing on.

I’m also loving the gameplay. The balance of action and horror is great, and on standard the boss fights are fun and not frustrating. The gunplay is also better than I thought but not action game good, but it fits the gameplay really well.

The setting in the village is also a high point for me, and there’s plenty of secrets to hunt. I just left the castle and am now on to the setting boss area which is much spookier. Like starseeker I am hoarding resources so I’ve been surprised that I haven’t had to manage the inventory a bunch which is awesome because I hate that.

Overall at the halfway point I’m at least thinking 9/10, probably higher, so looking forward to how the rest of the game stacks up

I recommend everyone play it on Village of Shadows difficulty at some point. Not only is it harder, but bosses react differently and enemies spawn in different places.

Just need to get the Mercenaries achievements to 100% this game.

Beat it 3 times. Loved every second of it.

Not a big fan of hard modes, how much more difficult is it on that setting?

Its really not that bad until you get to the stronghold. From there to the end it’s a pain in the ass. However I ran through with Chris’s machine gun with unlimited ammo and just spent all my time and money into meds.

Werewolves look different too or maybe I'm just seeing things.

Yeah they seem very different actually. More wild looking if that makes sense. Plus the boss battles have added things to them as well.
