Product Description

Product Description

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X begins as Claire Redfield leaves Raccoon City for Europe, headquarters of the Umbrella Corporation, in search of her brother Chris and to solve the mystery surrounding Umbrella Corporation's secretive activities. In her search she is captured and sent to an isolated prison on a desolate Island. While it remains unexplained how Chris, one of the original S.T.A.R.S. team members, appears in Resident Evil Code: Veronica X, players will be reacquainted with his iron will and munitions expertise to seek the truth behind the dreaded Umbrella biotoxins.

In Resident Evil Code: Veronica X players control Claire at the beginning of the game and later assume the role of Chris Redfield in their efforts to stop Umbrella's devious plans. One of the many features that make Code Veronica different from previous Resident Evil games is the Real World System (RWS). Now when Claire opens doors, solves puzzles, stores items or ammunition, they remain in the same spot when playing the second half of the game as Chris.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X contains never-before-seen footage that focuses on battles between Chris and the enigmatic character, Wesker, and sheds new insight into the ominous Resident Evil story line. Flesh-eating zombies, horrific beasts and even stranger mutations have spread on a global scale! Just how far does this twisted conspiracy extend? What is Umbrella Corporation really up to? And who is behind this bio-tech terror? To her horror, Claire discovers Umbrella Corporation's insidious activities are not isolated to the remote, mid-western city. No. Something much larger is going on here. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Amazon.co.uk Review

It's rather ironic that Resident Evil Code: Veronica X has rejuvenated the PS2's fortunes in Japan, because it's essentially identical to the original, year-old version on the Dreamcast. Code: Veronica is, however, a superb game that deserves as large an audience as possible, lest its heady mix of action, puzzles and lots and lots of zombies goes unappreciated by the masses.

Unlike previous games in the series Code: Veronica is portrayed entirely in 3-D--although the atmospheric camera maintains an essentially static viewpoint for most of the time. The amazing graphics are obviously the main draw but you'll also find that some of the more irritating foibles of the series have been ironed out--such as the scarcity of ammo and camera angles that make combat unfairly difficult.

The "X" at the end of the game's name indicates that this is a special edition, but the new stuff is limited to a couple of extra camera angles and some new cut scenes with uber-baddy Wesker. In terms of extras the most interesting aspect of the package is actually a demo of the forthcoming Devil May Cry. But unless you've already got the Dreamcast version, buy this for the game and treat the other stuff as a bonus because survival horror doesn't get any better than this. -- David Jenkins --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars veronica x 7 May 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Picking up a few months after the events of resi 2 Claire Redfield investigating a umbrella facility in Europe is captured & imprisoned on Rockfort island the prison is attacked & the virus is once against set loose Claire attempts to escape the island while her brother Chris sets out to find her & settle a score with former S.T.A.R.S traitor Albert Wesker.

Code veronica x is a classic resi in every sense of the word complete with puzzles, herbs, typewriters & huge mutated freaks though its much longer than the others with a massive prison & an antarctic base to explore.

This is a port of the ps2 version & if you have a ps2 there is no point at all in buying this on GC but if you don't there's every reason to buy it a great game not quiet as good as the originals add in a extra battle game mode for more bang for your buck you get a dam good resident evil game.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Everything You Feared...And More!" 3 April 2012
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Item arrived very quickly and was in excellent condition. The disc had no scratches and the manual looked untouched. Very pleased with the seller.

...?!...

Gotcha! You thought I was one of those idiots who mistook the "Reviews" page for the "Leave Seller Feedback" page, didn't you?! Hey relax. I know the difference between the two, and I do have an entertaining review for this game, Resident Evil: Code Veronica X for the PlayStation 2.

After being released first on the SEGA Dreamcast in 2000, Resident Evil: Code Veronica got an X tattooed on its flesh-rotting backside before being released on the PS2 in 2001. Taking place around 3 months after the zombie chaos led to the destruction of Raccoon City, Claire Redfield travels to Europe to search for her missing brother, Chris. During her search however, she is captured by Umbrella's finest and taken to some sort of prison on a remote and rather foggy island. It sucks, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

But being captured isn't Claire's only problem. Soon afterwards the island is attacked and infected with the T-virus. Claire now finds herself looking for a way to get off the island whilst having to fight more zombies. On top of that she's also trying to keep up with Steve Burnside, a young man who looks and acts more immature than my younger brother when he's a little short on smokes. In case you're wondering, no. We don't get along well.

The first thing I should talk about is the graphics. This was the first RE game on the PS2, and compared to the PSone instalments they were obviously more detailed and generally more impressive. By today's standards?

5.0 out of 5 stars The finest yet 6 Feb. 2003
By Mark
Format:Video Game
Considering that this game is simply a conversion of the old Dreamcast title (sans 'X') it gave the PS2 something of a renaissance in Japan. Why? Because it's brilliant!
The problem that many gamers had with the PS1 sequels to the PS1 original was that they were using essentially the same game engine, with tweaked scenery and new characters/weapons/puzzles being the only departures. REVX, however, is something like a total overhaul...
Centred around Claire Redfield (brother of RE1 stalwart Chris, and star of Resi 2), this game is gigantic and extremely involving, including the use of 3 different characters and real time 3D. RE virgins and RE maniacs alike are immediately at home with the game's (by now mantric) control system. The new puzzles are in the classic vein of the original, and yet somehow slightly different. That's this game all over: the same but different.
I wont give too much away about the plot but it does incorporate elements from previous games (including characters), and it will be a while before a player will complete it.
This game is easily worth 4.5 stars, but gets the full contingent now it's gone platinum. It is definitely worth full price so it's a downright bargain at platinum!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 21 Dec. 2003
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Nothing can beat the original Resident Evil but this is close! Resident Evil Code Veronica is one of the best games on the Playstation. The game stars Chris from Resident Evil 1 and Claire from Resident Evil 2.
The game has even more monsters and (especially the start) has to be hardest game yet. Some of the bosses include fighting Tyrant hanging off the edge of a plane and a giant spider.
The plot has to be the best yet too. You follow the very strange twins Alfred and Alexia. Claire meets a man in the prison and seventeen year old Steve who prove to be other main characters in the game. The story itself could be a film with all of the twists and action. This has to be the longest game I have ever played, you think the game is finished but then you carry on the game with Chris!
I would strongly recommend this game, it is great fun and full of action. It is scarier compared to the other games and is a bit different to the other games. However, it still keeps to the main Resident Evil series storyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Zombie Filled Fun Fest 28 May 2004
By Michael Cawdrey VINE VOICE
Format:Video Game
The resident evil series is a games series I have always held to my heart when it comes to games. Resident evil: Code Veronica was the first Resident Evil Game to be released on the playstation 2. Now it has been released on the Nintendo Gamecube. There are several advantages to this, with imporved graphics and extra small things added into it to make the game better than it already is. The plot revolves around Claire Redfield, any Resident Evil veteren like myself will be familer with this character already. Also ncluded is her brother Chris, a character from the first ever Resident Evil game.
The game takes place on a small island. The opening scences are breathtaking, with the superb graphics and the realism of the characters. Well as you would expect from any good Resident evil game, the zombies make a appearence almost strait away, so get your knife ready for the hordes of fleash chomping zombies that await Claire and Chris.
You meet several other characters along the way, including Steve Burnside and Alfred Ashford. I strongly recomend this game to people who enhoy survival horror games, and people who are not squimish. With the bleand of new monsters and some new characters make this game great.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Full Blown Resident Evil Experience.
Resident Evil was at its best on the playstation 1, but capcom has upheld resident evils honour. With that Resident Evil Code: Veronica X is the last proper resident evil game.
