| This game is the King of Horror, Raimi take note!!
I recently purchassed the very underrated Dreamcast and went off into town to find some games to use them on. I bought Soul Calibur (A classic) and then i stepped across the domain of Resident Evil Code Veronica. I have Resident Evil 1 & 2, and have played Res Evil 3 numerous occasions, and i have been impressed with all of them, especially no.1 which has to go down in history has a classic.

But none of them 3 come anywhere near to the dreamcast attempt of Brilliant Gory Gameplay. If its just for the sake of buying a dreamcast for this game it is worth every moment of your time and effort, ive never been so enthralled over a computer game in the way this has enthralled me.

Anyway, the story carrys on from the 2nd story in which Claire Redfield searches for her Brother (Chris - from the 1st story), who is presumed missing under the conspiracy of the dreaded umbrella corporation. Little is known about this corporation except the fact that you though you destroyed them 3 times in the previous storys.

So aiding Claire, with the assistant of super brat Steve, u must unlock the truth of the real location of your brother. The 2nd CD enables you to control Chris, thats if you manage to get that far without running out of the room in fear.

The control are very slick and the movement of the characters are magnificently realistic, when the character notices danger, he/she faces the direction it is coming from. PURE GENIUS!!

Overall i gave this game 10/10 because it is simply the game of the year, game of the decade and the best game in the world full stop!!. Please purchase this game as soon as possible.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


Although they have become widely known within Resident Evil lore, the name of the prison island and Steve's last name are not even once mentioned in the main game, nor referred to in the main game files. Only in the Battle Mode minigame can a hidden file be found that identifies the island as 'Rockfort Island', and when selecting Steve in the Battle Game, his last name is revealed to be 'Burnside'. Additionally, the wounded guard who frees Claire in the beginning is never named in the entire game. The Dungeon Mode minigame in Resident Evil: Survivor 2 - Code Veronica (2001) identifies him as Rodrigo Juan Raval.


Rodrigo Juan Raval: You better get out of here while you're still able.


Obviously the scene where Steve shoots the monster attacking Claire could not have happened as it did: Steve would have been injured by breaking head and shoulder first through a large pane of glass and he would not have been able to shoot the monster and hit it accurately without looking at it first without recovering from the fall.

Alternate Versions

Although the US and Japanese versions of the game are exactly the same, there are two known differences. First, the US version's main menu does not have a difficulty setting like the Japanese version which lets you choose Very Easy, Easy, or Normal gameplay. Second, in the US version, Wesker's Battle Game can be obtained by simply completing Chris' Battle Game, unlike the Japanese version, which in order to get Wesker's Battle Game you must find his sunglasses somewhere inside the normal game.
