The stories for both games are the same. Nothing has changed. Only in RE:4 have additional mini-games been added from previous versions. While they both wave the banner of new and improved graphics, this can be a con. There is something to be said about the issue that remastering can showcase old graphics that didn’t keep up. RE:4 does not suffer from this because its looks were ahead of its time. Code Veronica looks very dated on the new consoles and in HD.
The other area where the games struggle is control. It is difficult playing both games with the Xbox 360 controller layout. RE:4 will leave gamers a prone to cheap shot as looking behind you is not the same as turning around. RE:CV will leave players walking into walls and falling to cut corners as flaming zombies come their way.
While many argue that RE:4 did not feature true zombies, it gets damn close with the hordes that hound you through the game. Code Veronica truly does send undead everything your way. Fans of the series will find adding these two downloads as good additions to their gaming gallery. Is the price somewhat high? Possibly. Are the games worth playing? For the die-hards, definitely. For visitors to Raccoon City, being a permanent resident may not be necessary.
