Claire Redfield infiltrates an Umbrella facility in Paris, but is captured and imprisoned on Rockfort Island. She teams up with inmate Steve Burnside to escape after an outbreak of the T-Virus on the island.
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.
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.
