Classic Horror Returns in Crow Country

Released May 9, Crow Country seems to have slipped under the radar. However, it has about 2,000 reviews on Steam, and players are loving it. It combines the best elements of the classic Resident Evil and Silent Hill games and even uses a film over the screen to make it feel like you’re playing on an old TV screen. The camera angles also provide a great mix between stationary and over-the-shoulder designs.

As a longtime horror player, I felt like I was thrown into the past with Crow Country. It’s a blend of nostalgia and a fresh story that reminds me of the first time I launched the original Resident Evil. If you like the classic horror style, this is a great option that’s definitely worth picking up. The whole experience is refreshing, and if you just want to explore, you can use Exploration Mode and never worry about being attacked!
