Resident Evil 7 was meant to be a fresh change for the franchise, and it seems Capcom weren't lying - with the initial wave of reviews for Resident Evil 7 being overwhelmingly positive.

For the first time in the Resident Evil series, the game is 100% in the first-person perspective - with many gamers wanting to see Capcom keep the first-person style starting with Resident Evil 7. First-person horror games are quite big right now, but with a massive franchise like Resident Evil entering it - in a sea of some very good indie devs and smaller studios with first-person horror games, this is a great thing to see.

Better yet, Resident Evil 7 works on PlayStation VR - an exclusive to the PS4 for now, before it heads on over to the VR headsets on the PC. Our friends over at UploadVR reviewed the game, with David Jagneaux saying:
