I started playing the game without using any code, and within the first couple of levels, I had already found the costume. Finding the costumes and X-Genes in that game are all completely random. The costume codes are quite pointless. Hopefully it's different with Shattered Dimensions.
In Edge of Time (I assume that's what you meant ... Shattered Dimensions was the previous game), you have to get a "costume key" to unlock a suit. To get a costume key, you need to get at least a silver medal on every challenge in a chapter. This isn't too
bad, because you can actually play all of the challenges from the main menu, but it still takes a few tries to complete each one, and there are a ton of unlockable costumes. The keys are interchangeable -- you can unlock any suit with one, except for the two locked-out suits that you get for beating the game and beating it on hard.
The unlock codes save a lot of work, and it gives you a little leeway to unlock all the costumes without having to get at least a silver medal on every single challenge in the game (which you would need to do to unlock them all). I guess if you really wanted a specific suit, you could just unlock it with your first key, but otherwise it would be much more difficult to, say, get all of the Identity Crisis ones.
