Graphics and atmosphere are really great. If this is anywhere nearly as good as Resi7, we’re in for a treat!

A demo, so not much to say about it, other than it was a little underwhelming.

The Beginning Hour 2: Booba Edition
Not much to say about this one, just a nice little showcase of the tech on display. What else can I say other than "The game looks good"? I recommend people try it, but it's not exactly representative of the gameplay you'll find in 8 based on the current demos. The most it's representative of is the visuals, which look great.
Jamie wrote a better review than me.

the scariest of the 3 demos. short and sweet

Well, a friend of mine had me over to try out this new RESI VIII demo, and I quite liked it! I love this new direction for Resident Evil starting with 7, and it seems to continue with strength, here.
Maiden is more of a sightseeing tour than an actual game experience, with very minimal puzzles and so forth, but as a technical demo for the power of the updated RE Engine, it's quite striking. Ray tracing looks fantastic, the silky framerate is amazing, and playing this on a large, 4K display is awesome.
I'm really excited to see the kind of experiences this oncoming console generation can provide.
