To be fair, Code Veronica isn't the only RE game with ridiculous villains. I mean, RE4 HD is getting nothing but praise, and many of its villains were just as silly (Ramon Salazar anyone? Who at Capcom thought a wrinkled dwarf dressed in Renaissance clothing was scary?)
Simon Templeman is an incredible voice actor. It's such a shame he is so underrated.
@Ddouble: Ah, ok. I must have read the news article wrong. :(
Hell yes to Legacy of Kain!
Didn't Square confirm Versus is 100% complete a few weeks ago though? So I'm guessing they've already finished the PS3 version. If a 360 version does end up being made in future, I doubt it will affect the already-completed PS3 version.
"Actress Bai Ling -- renowned for her powerful and alluring performances" Please tell me that's sarcasm. o.O
Shame it's just a scaled-up port. The least Capcom could have done is smooth out the jaggies. It's really noticeable for a supposed "HD remake".
It didn't help that Sakaguchi left either. He left after FFX, and the series (in many people's opinions) went downhill from there.
I'm not talking about the natural progression of the FF series though. I'm talking about when Square experiment with things they aren't very familiar with, and end up with messes like Dirge of Cerberus, those mobile games that flopped in Japan, the additions to the FFVII Compilation nobody asked for (Genesis, Angeal, Deep Ground, the Lifestream internet network, etc), Final Fantasy X-2, and so on. Not to mention the awkward design choices in recent FF games. They ...
Why is this lady not hired to do more voice acting in games? She's a great voice actress... if only she was given the chance to branch out.
Stop with the spin-offs. Stop with the milking. Stop with the 'experimenting' that never quite works. Take Final Fantasy back to its roots: An epic journey with memorable characters, a beautiful world, a fun and challenging battle system, and gorgeous music.
Since it's Code Veronica X (and not just Code Veronica), I'm guessing it's a HD port of the PS2 version. Not the Dreamcast version. :( With that being said, the PS2 version did have some extra scenes that the Dreamcast version didn't have, so that's a plus. :)
I don't understand most of these reviews, tbh. Of course it's going to feel outdated (especially when compared to RE4) - it came out over 10 years ago! I mean, what were they expecting? A full remake of the controls, camera angles and graphics?
Yeah, it's $30 on the Australian PS Store too. IDK if I'm willing to shell out $60 for two old RE games,even though I want them both.
Holy shit, I just found out both games are $30 each on the Australian PSN. Fuck that shit, man.
I wonder if this reviewer has said the same thing for EVERY PSone and PS2 game that has either been re-released on PSN or remade in HD? Seems kind of unfair that Code Veronica is receiving so much negativity for being "outdated" when it's hardly the oldest game to be re-released/remade on PSN. Hell, it was released over 10 years ago - of course it's going to be "outdated"! That's like reviewing FFVII or Super Mario 64 nowadays, and saying they're c...
:( Code Veronica might be outdated, but I wouldn't say it deserves a measly 6.3/10. It's still a pretty decent game, and has one of the best plots in an RE game.
Relly? I mean, sure, certain games have some problems with their portrayals of women. But I don't think admitting someone's hot is all that sexist or proof of gender inequality. We all have attractions to people. Yep, even women do. (hell, I'm a girl and I'd bang the hell out of Hideo Kojima if I got the chance. Just sayin')
OK some of the scores this game has being receiving really bothers me. Code Veronica is a "lazy port", but RE4 is considered by most reviewers to be one of the best HD remakes that have been released?...even though Capcom put the same amount of effort (or lack thereof) into both. WTF.
