code veronica is a completely different style of game, it's survival horror

i'm biased because the series is my favorite of all time, but it sure as hell is worth 400 points

people spend just as much if not more on mediocre at best arcade games, can't go wrong with a cheap price for a classic game


It's still a Resident Evil game at it's core. While I personally love both Code Veronica and RE4, if he didn't like 5 or 6, I don't think he's going to like the others. Resident Evil may not be the series for him.

LOL, u will have no idea whats going on, just read the games story on wiki or something. But story isn't really important to re anyway, just shoot zombies and run away alot lol. Oh and the next Assassins Creed game iis gonna have PIRATES in it!!


thanks good advice -- will look at wiki before playing- thanks

as for not playing any before I have only been gaming for two years. I usually do not like to play a franchise without starting from the beginning. By the time I started gaming they were working on re6 and I do not even know where to find the first games ( if even possible ) in the series-- I repent my gaming sins! :D

Could've done without mentioning the movies. Those movies don't benefit the franchise in anyway. Otherwise, yeah, 3 console generations and people having never played it is pretty amazing.


i mentioned the movies because they made the series famous to people that have never played a video game in their life

people here buy bad games that are cheap and probably never heard of, i would've thought they would've tried a mainstream game franchise at least once since it was released in 96

If you never played any Resident Evil before Code: Veronica you're going to be quite confused: past characters and events are referenced a lot, and the story is rather twisted to begin with. It is advisable to read at least a recap of past games somewhere.

I found this YouTube playlist last October while I was searching for something to summarize the story up until RE4, so you can take a look too as it helped me immensely: http://www.youtube.c...1A4B767A6CDA3DF

Above all, keep in mind that you're in for a TRUE OLD SCHOOL experience: that means annoying fixed camera angles, tons of backtracking and a lack of substantial clues about where to go next, which can lead to countless minutes of wandering aimlessly through the levels. Make no mistake, I do love this game but I'm well aware of its shortcomings, so be prepared! 8-)


awesome-- thanks alot I just purchased the game so I will watch the video and read wiki before playing. make sure I have a feel of the franchise before playing-- thanks everyone-- very appreciated

you don't think the gameplay in code veronica is completely different than 4 - 6?

i would say if you didn't like 5 and 6 you probably won't like 4, but code veronica is a totally different resident evil

if somebody is interested in the series they should start with the original, reading a wiki page isn't the same as playing through a game, i don't think anybody can fully enjoy resident evil 5 when they didn't experience chris and wesker's story in the original

wouldn't return of the jedi be less enjoyable if you didn't actually watch star wars?

I don't know, I didn't like 5 really and never played 6 but RE4 is one of my favorite games of all time. I don't know how well it holds up since I haven't actually played it in a few years but from what I remember it was awesome.

He complained about the controls feeling wonky in 5 and 6. The controls honestly get worse as we go back so, if anything, I think he might like 4 but he won't like Code Veronica.

I Know of no one and don't even know of people who know of people who became RE fans because of the films. Then again I know of no one who even likes those films.

I haven't played a RE game before. I own 4 (HD release) and 5 (gold) but have yet to play them. Is Code Veronica a good pickup for me at $5? Should I start there before 4?

I'm definitely feeling the burn on Nexuiz, even having only spent 200 MSP. I saw it coming but have had to share the TV more (read: suffer, a lot) while the laptop is away for repair. Have I mentioned that I loathe probably 80% of what the girlfriend watches? Anyway - I'm definitely gonna sink some time into MP-only games in the near future and may hit you folks up for some boosting.

RE4, Code Veronica, and Gears 3 season pass for 2400 total... yup, time to stock up on points. :D

The Wii version is still the superior one, gameplay wise. The HD upgrades to RE4 are great, but the biggest problem is in Ada's campaign during the cut scenes and some of her QTE's they come off looking super fuzzy and stretched out. Everything else looks great though.

It's more sharp and clear than the Wii version, that's for sure, but it doesn't really add anything new if you already played that... textures and polygon count are exactly the same, and you'll find nothing even remotely comparable to what fans have done with PC mods. It's just a straight up port with better resolution and visual fidelity, that's all.

Was a nice surprise to see Resident Evil 6 for $9.95 or 600 msp. I am in Australia too.
Hope it is region free for everyone else to get.
How much was the discount, 50%? I am sure this is a saving of more than 50% for Australia, might be a mistake, not complaining though.

Just a quick warning for people buying RE4 using overseas accounts. I bought it way back when it was 800 pts on my Canadian account whilst I was in Australia (still haven't done a migration) and I have not been able to download it as I need to do it over VPN and still haven't been able to sort it out. Just be aware that if you buy it through an overseas account you might run into the same issue. I think the strategy is to VPN just the first 2% and the last 2% of a download as it seems to be just those bits of the files that have some sort of region-lock with them. I'm not too familiar with it. Once that happened I just put RE4 on my backlog and will sort it out later. But take it as a warning.

I was checking the requirements for Code: Veronica extra weapons 'n stuff, and man that rocket launcher is insane to get: you have to do a speed run without dying, using sprays, pausing ('cause it adds to the overall time) or watching cutscenes, nor checking a map because, well, there isn't one... basically, you have to know the game by heart and play it to perfection.

It's incredible to think how much time I had back then to even try similar things... and how much I miss those days... :cry:

I think there's a lot of people that don't particularly enjoy "scary" games. I know I'm one of them, and had never bothered with the Resident Evil series before last year. The only reason I bothered to check it out is because 4 is considered one of the best games ever, so I figured I'd better check it out. I loved 4 so I played 5 and really liked it. I tried messing around with 1-3 which I got from PS+, but it just wasn't happening. I think it would take real dedication for anyone who started with RE4 or later to go back and try to play the early games.

i never said the films were good

the point is if you play a lot of video games and one particular game inspired numerous movies, i figured a gamer would've played a resident evil game by now
