    This HD version of Resident Evil: Code Veronica X rewards players armed with patience, resourcefulness, and plenty of ink ribbons with a harrowing but memorable trek through the series' heyday. If you've got the grit, try downloading this affordable piece of Capcom history on PSN for PS3 and Games on Demand for 360.

    Code: Veronica X offers a compelling dose of classic survival horror zombie-blasting, though the game's archaic controls will undoubtedly be a major turn-off for some.

    It's still enjoyable once you get over all the frustrations.

    Today this game acts as a historical piece. It lets you see where the franchise came from, and why the revision that Resident Evil 4 brought to the series was so necessary.

    If you didn't play this on the Dreamcast or the PS2 you should try Code Veronica HD, as it's one of the best entries in the franchise. It's just a shame they didn't update it enough to make it look like a modern game.

    A re-release of a 10-plus-year-old game that doesn't have enough new content to appeal to those who already own it and will be hard to adjust to for those who have no nostalgia for the original.

    You know it's not a true HD Release when textures look exactly the same as the PS2/DC/Gamecube versions, however everything else was doneYou know it's not a true HD Release when textures look exactly the same as the PS2/DC/Gamecube versions, however everything else was done correctly, the source content is intact and they even went and enhanced the graphics by quite a large amount, which somehow people here have not mentioned, like dynamic shadows instead of a blob under everything, proper lighting being implemented where it shines onto things from a light source, plus the huge improvement to water by using a nice shader. Also 99.9% of PS2/Gamecube/DC owners used composite cables, so telling yourself it's merely a bump in resolution is lying to yourself, this version is the version to buy if you have never yet had the joy to play through this RE title, it was made at a time where 3D games looked and played with real finess, but this release has made a really good effort to look modern day on PS3/360 yes i own both versions, it is a great game. I also own the Dreamcast Japan import Biohazard Complete SE and RECVX for PS2. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. There will be people here who complain about the controls and difficulty, which is to be expected given how 'awkwardly' the old RE titles handle. With that said, the controls don't take long to learn and to dismiss the game based on how it controls is an injustice to what is still a great game at core. This is arguably the apex of the old survival horror format, and in itself is a piece of gaming history. It might not have the immediate gratification of most 'pick up and play' games of this preteen CoD camper era, but if you take the time to absorb the atmosphere and setting, and pick up the nuances of the game then the rewards will be manifold.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game is as good as you expect from the original (not 3rd person) RE series. But there is one huge flaw. During the campaign (BEWARE OF MINOR SPOILER, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK BEYOND THIS POINT), you play for several characters. But the game doesn't warn you anyhow as to when you'll be switching characters. So I've left my grenade launcher with over than 40 grenades overall in Claire's inventory. However, final boss fight required me using it, because you can't take it down with your 6 magnum shots + 50% AK+ 11 shotgun + 40 pistol (and even if you'll stay alive long enough to make more shots with en-d HG, it'll still be faster to replay last hour of game to get GL to item box). So RE 2 was doing much better job combining gameplay for two characters. I'm not sure that HD textures are noticeable enough to be mentioned. Expand

    I;ll be honest. this is a game i've been meaning to play since it first came out back on the dreamcast and now that i have played it?.. um.. iI;ll be honest. this is a game i've been meaning to play since it first came out back on the dreamcast and now that i have played it?.. um.. i have mixed feelings.. for the most part the game is fun, even if it's controls are outdated and the cheesy, badly acted dialog is still present (minus Alyson Court as Claire.. she's the only good voice actress who tries in this game). The enhanced graphics were the selling point of this re-release and while some of the character models and a few of the water effects look better.. most of it looks it's age.. most of the environment is full of blurry textures, or just no textures at all, like it's a early ps1 game.The biggest problem is the difficulty . it's way to hard and part of the reason is that capcom USA decided to eliminate the ability to choose the difficulty settings that were present on the dreamcast, ps2 and gamecube version.. as well as the japanese version of this game.. why did they get the difficulty settings but we in the US didn't? your guess is as good as mine.. overall i really wanted to like this game, but the way too outdated graphics (that clearly had very little work down to them for is supposed HD version), the awkward controls, and the extreme difficulty are too much to make this game enjoyable.. this is a incredible lazy "HD" remaster that clearly had about 5 minutes of work done on id before being sent out the door. i wish i could say i expected better from capcom but considering they haven't made a good RE game since RE4, i'm not as surprised as i could be. if you want to play RE Code Veronica X, get the PS2 or gamecube version instead..
