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.
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 JenkinsSee all Product Description

(+) This game directly continues the journey that "Resident Evil 2" lead Claire Redfield experiences post the game's nightmarish events. The plot is strong, with three main characters fighting to save the world against three very well delivered villains, in particular, the character of Alfred Ashford.
(-) The plot takes an unexpected twist and reintroduces another character from the series to the game (I won't spoil it for those who haven't played it yet) which in my opinion was a big mistake. It shouldn't have been done.
(+) Still very impressive. The camera performs very well considering this is the first "Resident Evil" title in which the camera is able to roam freely (previous titles are pre-rendered). The textures are dealt with well. I'm sure that this game looked better on the Dreamcast, suprisingly enough it seems to have suffered very slightly from being moved to a better system.
(-) With the Gamecube editions looking so much better, this title has aged very, very quickly. It could be forgiven as the remake and "Resident Evil 0" are also pre-rendered but "Resident Evil 4" is on the way, which is the second game to employ a fully 3D engine AND it's on the Gamecube - so this game will age even more by then.Read more ›
You play as Claire Redfield who is searching for her brother Chris after the lucky escape in Raccon City Claire know finds herself trapped on an Island but it wasn't too long before she was out of that Prison Cell and the Nightmare has know struck the Island will Claire be able to survive the Nightmare again and find her Brother? That's upto you.
Awesome game it's still scary and is packed with tons of gore new monsters and new weapons make this game a definate buy
Anyway. In this version, everything has been tweaked to near perfection - the graphics are great, the puzzles are a little less frustarting than earlier efforts, and there are more scares in here than the rest of the Resident Evil series put together. RE:CV is also the longest of the series, taking about 18 hours to complete on average.
The main negative issue with this game is the ancient control system. Capcom still insist on the digital rotate and run system for Code - Veronica, and its still a pain in the a$$!
If you're a survival horror fan, and get past this problem, this game will probably be as close to perfection seen so far in the genre.
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.
Still, that should be the last thing you're worrying about. Despite Resi's trademark poor controls, everything else is perfect. The cinematic camera angles provide fantastic set pieces - there is one scene where your character is in the background and part of the scenery (a black plastic bag) is in the foreground...as soon as you walk around the corner the plastic bag wriggles......
The game isnt really worth buying if you played the Dreamcast version though, as it is virtually the same despite tweaked graphics and longer cut scenes. Being the PLATINUM edition, it does not feature the demo of Devil May Cry... but hey! you'd have that already right?
