It has been three years since Ethan Winters took on the terrifying Baker family in Resident Evil 7. His ghoulish trip to the Louisiana swamp has been put behind him, relocating to a quiet Eastern European town with his wife Mia and daughter Rose. The bliss is short-lived as, after an attack on their home, Rose is whisked away to a nearby village by a cult led by the mysterious “Mother Miranda”. From here Ethan travels to the mist-wreathed village to find its pockets of old houses largely deserted, except for the thumping terror of werewolves and ghouls prowling its rough roads. In the panicked pistol shots and dark secrets of a none-too-welcoming town, Resident Evil Village has found itself bearing comparison with series game-changer Resident Evil 4. But while its crackling atmosphere and flamboyant baddies are certainly redolent of Leon Kennedy’s European tour, Resident Evil Village is more broadly a glorious greatest hits. According to producer Jun Takeuchi, Ethan’s foray in the swamp-wreathed Baker plantation in Resident Evil 7 was Capcom ‘stripping the series down to its core’. It served the reinvented Resi well, with its grisly tableau all the more intoxicating in its newfound first-person perspective. But if the flaw in 7 was a diminished sense of variety, Resident Evil Village recalls what has made the series such a titan, casting its net wide over its history in fierce action, terrifying pursuits and macabre psychological horror. It exchanges blows on this with breathless pace and admirable coherence, even if its yarn spirals with the series’ most outrageous excess. After that initial foray into the village, a visit to Castle Dimitrescu is a fine example of this. The looming castle is an ornate labyrinth, with spiral staircases gilded in red and gold, opera rooms, wind-swept bell towers and plenty of Resident Evil’s familiar puzzles and doors with absurdly complicated locking mechanisms. It is every inch the equal of the original’s Arklay Mansion or Resident Evil 2’s Police Department, with that disorientating sense of both imposing scale and cloying tightness. Dozens of rooms interlinked with tight corridors prowled by the ladies of the house. One of whom, of course, is the 9ft internet thirst-trap Lady Dimitrescu (or, more simply, “tall vampire lady”).
