Before We start, I think this is the first review (I didn't see any other reviews) for this. This is my Second Review, and I will look forward to your constructive comments. Unfortunately

INTRODUCTION TO CODE: VERONICA
Resident Evil Code: Veronica is the 4th Installment, and is notable for being the first Non-Sony Release, Originally being on the Dreamcast and The Playstation 2. Around 2003, it was ported to the Gamecube.
The Main Protagonists in this game are Claire Redfield (From the 2nd Resident Evil) and Chris Redfield From The First Resident Evil. It is also the only game in which Claire and Chris are featured together. If you are used to playing the survival action games such as 4 and 5, you're in for a real suprise with Code: Veronica X

GAMEPLAY

Code: Veronica X is about item management and wisely using your resources. The Controls are not first person, there is a tank like control scheme that is rather complicated but easy to adapt to! You cannot be a like a housewife with your gun, you have to be more of a... guy that carries around a gun but never uses it. You have to use your vast knowledge of mixing herbs (which is very hard to figure out) and First Aid Spray. Code Veronica is not a straightforward game, you have to rely on your wit to navigate through certain puzzles. The Inventory closely resembles R.E 1-3 inventory, and you have to be careful with what goes in. You can deposit everything into a item box. Saving in this game is scarce and not often done. You get "Ink Ribbons" which come in packs of 3, and you must use them to save.

Another thing that should be addressed is the Achievements. I can think of 3 that aren't story related. "From the Young Lady" which you must obtain when you gain Control of Steve and go back to the elevator room and get a little pep talk from Claire

The Linear Launcher, where you must get A Ranking for every Characters Battle Game:

Requirements for A Rank (In Minute:Second Form)
Claire: Beat by 6:10 (Use Infinite Explosive Bow Gun)
Revealing Claire: Beat by 8:00 (Use Infinite Flame Grenades)
Chris: Beat by 6:30 (Use Infinite Magnum)
Steve: Beat by 10:00 (Use Infinite SMG's When Worm)
Wesker - Beat the Scenario (Use Knife)

and Obtaining The Rocket Launcher
You must beat the game in Under 4 hours and 30 minutes
You mustn't save (There is a free save after the Tyrant or Nosferatu)
You mustn't use First Aid Sprays (Mixed/Herbs are just fine)
and You Cannot Retry. You must go to the dashboard and reload your free save.

END OF REVIEW

Code: Veronica is a great game certainly worth 20 Bucks. The ending was well crafted and worth it for anyone that could solve the rather complex puzzles (or anyone too lazy and had to use a walkthrough)

Thanks for reading, hope this can shed some light!

4.5/5. Getting the game 100% Completed (Story-wise and achievement wise) is quite the rewarding experience.

Austin9993 There was a review written for this about two weeks ago, just saying. Haha.

And this seems more like a summary than an actual review, but that might just seem that way because it's so short.

But I get the picture, so I'll +1 you. (:

sirfacee Thanks, I thought that a summary with some opinion would be the best way to go. But, that doesn't seem to be what everyone else thinks, so I'll be sure that next review I will make it longer.
