Quoted from Codename: Outbreak Reviews:Check out these quotes from Codename: Outbreak reviews & previews
"...an excellent tactical FPS that adds some innovative and advanced technical features to this sub-genre... the teammates...aren't indispensable... the greatest thing about the team AI is that it is hardly a nuisance during thick action..."
"...the AI handles the wingman duties competently enough... the enemies in Venom are pretty nasty on the default difficulty level, and they're well armed... What's most interesting about the game...is the terrain..."
"If you want to get the feel of creeping through the hills as part of an assault team this gets you pretty close. And like many FPS this game really rocks when you go into multiplayer mode."
"Codename Outbreak had the potential to be a truly great first person shooter, a science fiction answer to Operation Flashpoint. Unfortunately thanks to AI flaws, clipping problems, awful voice acting, repetitive sound effects and some rather lacklustre level design in places, we are left with a game that falls far short of its potential."
"...Outbreak seems almost surreally whimsical in its treatment of a special forces vs. alien conflict. Perhaps that is what Virgin is aiming for, a light soufflé rather than a heavier formal cake."
