Koudelka – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood & Gore, Animated Violence

Koudelka – Review

Koudelka first gained media attention at the 1999 E3 show. Anyone who saw its looping demos admitted that the game showed promise. It sported impressive CG graphics, rich prerendered backgrounds and was made by a collection of developers who once worked at Squaresoft—all the things needed to garner some attention and positive early reviews.

Koudelka

Game Description: On Halloween, 1898, a troubled yet determined medium named Koudelka is driven by the spirit of an unknown woman to the ominous Nemeton monastery. Once a place of worship, it evolved into a prison where the sentenced died horrible deaths. There, along with Edward, the adventurer, and James, the bishop, she will discover horror, danger, and adventure in the ruined and haunted abbey. Either they will solve their mysterious quests, or they will die trying.

Koudelka – Second Opinion

What makes survival horror games so annoying is how exploring and finding items in the prerendered backgrounds almost always proves to be a rigid and awkward experience. Koudelka makes this quality about a thousand times worse by adding random attacks—more typically found in RPGs—to the mix.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica – Second Opinion

As Resident Evil games go, Code: Veronica is familiar fare. If you loved the older games, youll love this even more with its suped-up graphics and sound. Myself personally, I am getting pretty sick of this series and if it werent for the fact that its making its debut on the Dreamcast, I would have panned it even more.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica – Review

Yet, the graphical wonder of Code: Veronica also becomes a lethal double-edged sword. While the presentation received a shot in arm and everything looks fairly realistic, the same can't be said of the gameplay mechanics, which has remained unbelievably ridiculous.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica

Game Description: Enter the world of survival horror with Resident Evil Code: Veronica. It’s up to you to help Claire Redfield escape from the penal colony that the Umbrella Corporation has put her in. The problem is, the prison is on an island, and there’s something strange happening on it: zombies are running rampant. You’ll have to solve puzzles, move crates, and shoot a lot of zombies as you try to make your escape. Great graphics, realistic cutscenes, and plenty of zombies result in the best game in the Resident Evil series yet.

Zombie Revenge – Review

No game echoes this sentiment clearer than Sega's Zombie Revenge, a shoot-'em-up, beat-'em-up arcade brawler with zombies and gore to spare. Though the game does have its moments, there's nothing here that hasn't been tried before. Zombie Revenge just changes the scenery a bit, adding a Resident Evil-esque theme to a pretty basic formula.

Carrier – Second Opinion

...there is one problem with Carrier that lowered its score, and that was its lack of originality.
