This game is already a guaranteed multi-million sales success story for Capcom largely due to the massive hype that has already been generated long before launch. (And, for good reason.) After its stellar predecessor RE7, RE8/Village is set to crank everything up 11 when it comes to gameplay, presentation and story (and tall vampire women). RE Village is considered a potential Game of the Year contender so, does it end up living up to such lofty expectations? Here's the review roundup:
We have finally arrived at the month of May, and the games industry appears to be picking up pace after the initial slow start to the year. Despite the release of great games such as Monster Hunter Rise and Returnal, this year feels like it's missing that extra humph one would expect months into a new generation.
