  1. A bit like a B-Dreamcast game, and will probably secure a place in your library for that reason, so maybe you can skip the Eric Roberts movie after all.
  2. When you go up against "RE Code: Veronica" armed with only a flashlight, you just aren't going to win the battle. [Nov 2001, p.125]
  3. Superb graphics, challenging puzzles, morbid acts, and eerie noises will have you playing until the wee hours of the morning.
  4. A pretty good game and something that I would recommend any horror fan to play.
  5. Lack of originality aside, this is still a good and highly playable game.

    If you grew up on this series and were hoping for the next great chapter, you'll be left alone in the dark.
  7. The Dreamcast version gives you the best of all possible worlds: sharp, solid 3D graphics, along with reasonably familiar Resident Evil-style gamepad control. [Jan 2002, p.86]

    Good graphics and puzzles that have you searching the internet for walkthroughs. Only problem is a flashlight is considered a weapon.

    Didn't find it all that challenging. I thought it to be sort of an RE rip off.

    Not bad, not good either. Graphics kinda crummy compared to more recent games. Puzzle moderately challenging. Cross between Resident Evil and Not bad, not good either. Graphics kinda crummy compared to more recent games. Puzzle moderately challenging. Cross between Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Worst thing is camera views, short loading sequences every 5 minutes, and the control of the character. Wow, all this criticism and i've only had the game for 3 hours. Collapse
