Product Description

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

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 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 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better 11 Jan 2004
By Sarah
Format:Video Game
Visually this game is brilliant when you first load it up on to your PS2, the computer graphics are excellent, along with the sounds of the moaning and the groaning of the zombies, and the screeches of other mutated delights.
One of the problems I found was that, after having a ball and feeling that rush of "Yeh! I beat that *^#~#*#!", you finally get halfway or near to the end and you realise that you have forgotten vital items, which are important in order to get through the course of the game. It's really frustrating and your shouting and cursing at the TV screen!
I don't know how many times I had to load up from the beginning purely because I missed something!
It did keep me engrossed for a long time, but after loading up from practically the first level, (and on numerous occassions) it does get tedious!
And how could I forget to mention the high-pitched squealing voices of the twin villains, whose voices sound like strangled cats and screaming banshees, (or whatever you may prefer). It really grates on your nerves.
If you plan on playing this game make sure that you put all of your items in an item box for safe keeping, and make sure you save as much health and ammo as possible, cos when the really evil guys come out to play, and you have nothing to help you, it's hell! (Especially for anyone who happens to be in the same room as you!) Oh yeah and remember to bring ear plugs cos those twins could burst your ear drums!

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.
