I love the sense of accomplishment that comes with completing a challenging classic survival horror game. This HD version of Resident Evil: Code Veronica X rewards players armed with patience, resourcefulness, and plenty of ink ribbons with a harrowing but memorable trek through the series’ heyday. If you’ve got the grit, try downloading this affordable piece of Capcom history on PSN for PS3 and Games on Demand for 360.
Worth Playing (Oct 02, 2011)
Resident Evil Code: Veronica X is a must-have game, but only if you fall under certain requirements. You have to be fine with more puzzles and obscure item hunts than combat. There must be a comfort level with the various odd camera angles that the game seems to love. The fact that some of the dialogue is off and that some of the voices are laughable shouldn't pose much of a problem to you. You also have to be fine with the graphical improvements being good but not mind-blowing. If you can live with all of this, then you'll certainly enjoy this classic entry in the series because of the story and action. If any of the aforementioned aspects bother you, then stick with the franchise games from Resident Evil 4 onward.

So yes. Code Veronica X still does the job. For fifteen pounds though? Hmmm. Unsure. If you’re loopy about all things Resident Evil and have some xbox points sitting about then knock yourself out. But when superior sibling Resident Evil 4 and console Crysis are the same price, you do wonder if they’re maybe taking the mickey a bit. Heck, Beyond Good and Evil was released after Code Veronica and was still only priced at 800 points. You can’t help but think the company missed a trick here. A 1200 point price point would have been more reasonable perhaps. Oh well. If you do have a hankering for an old school exercise in creaky door survival horror on your spangly HD console, you could do a heck of a lot worse. Isn’t that right Za… shut up.

Resident Evil: Code Veronica is a relic of a bygone era that Capcom has done nothing to reinvent for modern audiences with this reissue. Yet beneath its off-putting anachronisms there is a worthwhile, menacing game - for those with the eyes to catch it.
IGN (Sep 28, 2011)
Resident Evil: Code Veronica certainly stood as a high mark for its franchise &#Array; at the time. Revisiting the game, with its dated graphics and in light of the significant improvements made by its successors, proves an entirely different experience. In many ways, the only reason to play through Code Veronica is to truly appreciate what RE 4 and RE 5 managed to do. Unfortunately not all titles age equally.

Resident Evil : Code : Veronica X HD est l'archétype même du portage HD fait à la va-vite. Comment légitimer un tel rendu visuel affichant des textures baveuses et un 720p granuleux ? Tout simplement incroyable et déplorable dans le sens où Capcom n'a à aucun moment rendu hommage à un des meilleurs opus de la série. Malheureusement, tout excellent qu'est le titre, il faut avouer que Code Veronica a subi l'usure du temps aussi bien au point de vue du gameplay que du rythme. Une énorme déception donc, non pas dans le fond mais plutôt dans la forme, principal intérêt de ce portage monnayé 20 euros... no comment.
