Nick Petrasiti (TheSixtAxis)

Lady Dimitrescu’s towering presence is just the tip of the iceberg of what Resident Evil Village offers. This game takes everything you know about the iconic horror series and dials it up to eleven!

I think you should skip Resident Evil Village. The boss fights are forgettable, and the story isn’t compelling. I liked exploring the creepy environments, but the game itself never rises above being “fine.”

A grimly beautiful collection of killer horror set-pieces, with some of the most memorably grotesque enemies in Resi history.
