This is the same as the original Resident Evil: Code: Veronica for Dreamcast, with new cut-scenes that were not included in the original. Also, Steve got a haircut.

The game is otherwise almost the same, you still take control of Claire Redfield and Chris Redfield, who are searching for each other, while uncovering the secrets behind the Umbrella Corporation.

Cut content (Spoiler!)

Reportedly, Leon Kennedy was originally going to make an appearance, only to be killed at some point in the game. Ultimately, this decision was scrapped due to Leon's popularity, and the ill-fated role was written for a new character, Steve Burnside. This explains why Leon and Steve are so similar in appearance.

German index

On March 29, 2003, Resident Evil: Code: Veronica X (PS2) was put on the infamous German index by the BPjS. For more information about what this means and to see a list of games sharing the same fate, take a look here: BPjS/BPjM indexed games.

German PS2 version

An anecdote written by phlux:
Electronic Arts made quite a fuss about releasing the PS2 version of this game in Germany. It was released one or two days before the WTC disaster occurred. We got our ordered number of games and sold them rather quickly. When I wanted to get some more, I was told that "EA doesn't support violence in games any more because they are an US company blah blah" and they wouldn't sell Veronica X any longer and I should tell my customers about it. I did and told everyone who wanted to buy the game that it was discontinued. No store carried it for a while. Then, some weeks had passed, the game re-appeared in stores

References to the game

In the second RE movie known as Resident Evil: Apocalypse not too far from the ending, Alice (Milla Jovovich) pulls out the running scene as one of the Umbrella Corp's choppers shoots after her and shatters the glass behind her, while displaying her on a targeting monitor. As she escapes and jumps to safety, she is surprised by more guards. She drops her gun just about to surrender, but then falls down, grabs the gun and shoots all three of them. This entire scene is made after the intro of Resident Evil: Code: Veronica X game, with exception that Claire shot at the explosive behind the soldiers and didn't just mow them down with her gun.
