    This is, for all intents and purposes the same game that was released for the DC over a year ago. It was great then, it's still great now.

    Adds nothing to the well-worn formula but wraps everything up in a glossy package which makes the previous outings look like primary school projects. This is classic Resi at it's finest.

    A necessary part of any adventure gamer’s balanced breakfast…Masterful storytelling and superb graphics. [Sept 2001, p.144]
  4. Players who haven’t experienced Code: Veronica need to. It’s to die for.
  5. Little more than a slightly enhanced port of an already excellent game.
  6. 80
    It is another fantastic foray into survival horror by Capcom, who have successfully taken the genre started by "Alone in the Dark" and turned it into four of the most thrilling and fun-filled gaming experiences around.

    After having played so many Resident Evil games, I want more from it. I want better controls, less ludicrous key-searching missions, and more forgiving camera angles, for starters.

    Great game. Filled with thrills, shocks, and jump out of your seat moments.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Great Resident Evil. Hard to get used to at first, once you master the controls, it's smooth sailing from then on. The game is arguably one of the most challenging of the series, especially to somebody who is not used to the concept of survivor horror. Conservation is essential to survival. If you waste your ammo, tough,it's not a 21st century war game.. The Knife is the key to killing the basic zombies, while the bosses and advanced creatures require the best in your arsenal. Characters from the first two games are also present, including Wesker, Chris and Claire. Steve Burnside, may be an irritating git, but his cheesy capcom dialogue does not detract from the fact that RE CV is an underrated masterpiece Expand

It is almost as good as the second game, but it suffers from not trying to do anything new other than following the same old formula a little too loyally. At that time, this style of survival horror was starting to get a little stale. That aside it still is a great game with fantastic animation, great gameplay and "interesting" characters. The story is a little too familiar and comes across feeling a little too familiar for most of the game. The other times when it tries to be original it gets a little weird. Overall: A decent Resident Evil game that does nothing wrong, but could have tried to do something new, aside from introducing a little QTE near the end (thanks for that Capcom since we all looove QTEs *he says with sarcastic smirk.*) Expand

Some parts are frustratingly cheap. The storyline and settings aren't my favorite, but are interesting none the less. The game is visually impressive. Some of the beginning sections with Claire are tedious. Things get better once Chris is playable. This isn't my favorite Resident Evil yet it surprises me that this is a spin off title. Some think it deserved the Resident Evil "3" title. It's a good game that isn't vastly different from the PSone titles. Beware. The challenge is present. Patience is a must with this game. Expand

    "Code Veronica X" ?... on dirait un titre de film porno ! Peut-être que le jeu consiste à trouver les X manquants ? ah non faut taper sur des"Code Veronica X" ?... on dirait un titre de film porno ! Peut-être que le jeu consiste à trouver les X manquants ? ah non faut taper sur des cons de zombies. Pas évident avec une interface aussi lamentable et une jouabilité aussi nulle à chier.

    Je suis sincèrement béat d'admiration devant les individus qui ont -auraient- réussi à jouer plus de 15 mn à ce truc. Quelle abnégation, quel dévouement. Personnellement, je croyais avoir mis un jeu dans la PS2 mais non. Code résident machin est l'exemple stupéfiant de tout ce qu'l ne faut pas faire dans un jeu vidéo. Personnellement, je n'ai pas de temps à perdre sur une telle nullité.
