I LOVE the Resident Evil series probably even more than the Final Fantasy series and when Resident Evil 5 came out I was so hyped it was ridiculous. I played that game and the best way to describe it would be to compare it with the Phantom Menace. A lot of people including me liked it, but it was a year or so later where the salt started.
Admittedly I am in the salty category, as when we reviewed it I wasn’t exactly complimentary.

The original version of Code: Veronica was release in 2001 for the Dreamcast and PlayStation2, but for the purposes of the review I am referring to the Gamecube version (Code: Veronica X).
