Downloadable content can be a real mixed bag, especially when season passes come into play. Yet Resident Evil 7's DLC actually goes so far as to add real value to the game, without noticeably having been yanked from the main storyline.

There are a couple of ridiculous modes, which pitch you against an insane number of enemies, Dark Souls style and have you feed the game's main antagonist. The former is, appropriately enough called Ethan Must Die, the latter is Jack's Birthday. They're okay, but the real meat of the game is the Banned Footage.

These are, for the most part, little vignettes that offer a glimpse into the lives and deaths of the Baker family and their victims. Nightmare, Bedroom and 21 have you playing Clancy, who survived a previous encounter with the Bakers. Bedroom is by far the strongest of these, having you chained to a bed by Marguerite Baker, the family's gruesome matriarch.

This is a tense enough situation, but it's made all the worse by the fact that, upon hearing a noise, Marguerite will make her way back, wounding you if you are caught. Scary stuff as you attempt to free yourself while evading her attentions. Though the game does miss a trick by giving you a countdown showing when she's coming back. Giving you the warning deflates some of the tension.

Daughters, however, is by far the best of the whole pack. Showing the life of one of the Bakers' children, it's scary but what really makes it an essential is just how heartbreaking it is.

The beauty of this DLC is that the game exists without the footage, unlike Dead Rising 4's Frank Rising which was basically ripped out of the main game. If you loved Resident Evil 7, then these extras are well worth picking up. Downloadable content that, for once, is worth downloading.
