I like both, but this has a different vibe so far; it has more action, for one. The horror is also different, it is like the older RE games. It is more about which weird mutations you will encounter, deep darkness tech, gore, environmental destruction, and jump scares.
The storytelling is also different, it has far more characters and one of the main "bads" apparently has a re-design similar to RE3's main bad guy
He will hunt you down!
. It also seems to have more "articles" you have to read that flesh out the world; moreso than RE7. This is closer to the older RE games.
Body destruction/gore... is also on another level (not a huge fan of this personally, but it makes sense given the context).
This one seems to have far more puzzles (like the old RE games) which I love.
The UI is preeeetty much the same so far.
RE7 is more outlast-ish at the beginning and gets more action packed as it goes, until it goes full old school RE by the end (creepy labs and experiments, weaponry, etc). RE7 is a more contained story.
RE2 is more about the whole city and the world experiencing the fallout of Umbrella after the events of RE1.
