MY REVIEW OF RE:CV:———————Resident Evil Code Veronica for the Dreamcast has everything a Dreamcast owner could want in a game: Wonderful graphics, superb sound quality, an awesome storyline, and over 30 hours of gameplay to boot. Resident Evil Code Veronica (RE:CV) is the best survival horror game on the mass market, and everyone who owns a Dreamcast should own it. And so should everyone else.Graphics-10/10The visuals in RE:CV are the some of the best on the Dreamcast.
The character models are realistic and move just like their real-life counterparts would. The characters look real, and even the real-time cut-scenes look better than the FMV videos in the game. RE:CV has plenty of cool lighting and special effects. The games runs very smoothly, and there is no slow-down at all. My only gripe is that there is some fog deep in the background, but this is only used as a visual effect, not to hide pop-up.
Key word here: Eye-Candy.Sound-10/10RE:CV has some of the best sound effects I’ve ever heard. From zombies wailing to bats screeching, every sound is reproduced realistically and is crystal clear. Thank god that RE:CV is on a GD-ROM, or else the sound quality would have greatly dropped. The music is also great. It really sets the mood of the game, and it changes as the flow and speed of the game changes. When an enemy approaches or you are in a boss-fight, the music becomes tense and can really make you quiver in fear.
Spectacular.Controls-9/10Controlling your character was always somewhat of a problem of the past, and RE:CV is no different. Although moving your character can be troublesome at first for beginners, vets will know it by heart, and will have no trouble manuvering either Claire or Chris. Aiming your weapon is simple and targeting multiple targets was never so easy.
You can even shoot two guns at once, and shoot two different enemies at the same time, John Woo-style. This adds another element to the game, and gives you a slight advantage in this creepy world of survival-horror.Gameplay-10/10The gameplay of RE:CV is what makes it stand out from the rest of the pack. Yeah, the visuals are nice, but it’s when you get sucked into the Resident Evil world that you finally realize that this is as good as it gets. The game is deep, provided you know how to use the items presented for you, and the game has a fantasic storyline. RE:CV is an actual sequel to Resident Evil 2, unlike Resident Evil 3. RE:CV ties up most loose ends in the Resident Evil universe, but never fully reveals all of Umbrella’s past.
This is great, because it makes you want to play more, and therefore increasing the replay value way up. And speaking of replay value, RE:CV has plenty. It contains of over 30 hours of gameplay, plus extra modes that you can receive after beating the game. It comes on two discs, and has a zapping system simliar to Resident Evil 2. Overall, the best Resident Evil game in the series, and one of the best playing games of all-time.Rent/BuyBuy it right now. Or wait until the retailers actually get some more copies of RE:CV in stock, because it’s so hot right now.
:)Overall-10/10RE:CV is one of the best reasons to own a Dreamcast, and if you don’t own one yet, RE:CV is a game that will make you purchase a Dreamcast. Superb work Capcom. I salute you.RECAP:Graphics-10/10Sound-10/10Controls-9/10Gameplay-10/10Rent/Buy-BuyOverall-10/10=============================================================================2.
