The Resident Evil Village demo plays for sure, but it can scare


Although Resident Evil does not occupy the sovereign position in my playing heart, which is forever dedicated to the rival Silent Hill, but because they are in vain in Konami, I look forward to Village as a small child. I was not very pleased with the release of the release date yesterday, I personally hoped for March, but we got at least a playable demo, which I managed to go through three times at the time of writing these lines.

For the first time, I edited Maiden at night, in the absolutely optimal atmosphere of a quiet apartment, that is, as I plan to play a full game. The whole passage does not take long, on the second attempt you complete it in just ten minutes. After all, the authors themselves call it a “visual showcase”, it works more like a playable teaser, which is supposed to confuse you with the atmosphere and audiovisual form of the game.

I admit that the haunting and oppressive atmosphere of the empty corridors of the lavishly furnished castle worked very well for me, but I couldn’t shake the impression that Capcom was playing too much for sure and almost repeating the best practices from the past.

If you still remember the mysterious demo version of Beginning Hour for Resident Evil 7, know that Maiden is literally stealing her style. Once again, we get into the role of a defenseless character who must escape from a dangerous environment, again the first object found will be a massive splitter and again use clichés such as the inconspicuous passage of an unknown character, which you will see from the other end of the corridor through the crack in the door.

The fear comes mainly from the ambient sounds, especially down in the basement, at times I wasn’t sure if the footsteps belonged to me or to the scathing danger that creeps up in the shadows. Something sometimes falls into absolute silence in front of you, or someone laughs mischievously or grunts frighteningly.

Compared to the aforementioned Beginning Hour, however, Maiden has one significant disadvantage. The preview of the seventh part was released at a time when we knew almost nothing about the game, we had no idea what dangers would be lurking in the house, we could only guess the meaning of the videotape with a strange TV show and moreover the mystery with the dummy’s finger worked great, which was cracked by other updates that the demo received.

Maiden, on the other hand, comes at a time when we have already seen extensive trailers, we know what awaits us in the castle and the chateau, and the distressing uncertainty is therefore there, the surprise simply cannot take place and does not even take place in the final. In addition, the demonstrations of the full game show that this is how the new Resident Evil will not be played for the most part.

Still, if you have a PlayStation 5 at home and you’re at least a little horror positive, be sure to give the demo a chance. Those few moments can freeze quite nicely in the nape of the neck and just as a demonstration of the capabilities of RE Engine, they work perfectly. The demo was also tried by the editorial ghost (his words!) Aleš and he is excited about the result. May it be May!
