It is a dangerous goal to try to please everyone. Resident Evil Village takes that challenge admirably and delivers a thrilling adventure for both horror and action fans. From a horror perspective, Village has the scariest sequence in any Resident Evil, a well-executed nightmare that will stick with me for years. When it wants to be a pure action experience, it swings for the fences with a variety of weapons and nightmarish enemies. With a standout cast of villains that put Resident Evil 7’s Baker Family to shame, Village firmly puts the series in a strong direction, horror or otherwise.
