Retro Gaming 00’s- Resident Evil- Code: Veronica (2000)

Everyone remembers how big Capcom’s Resident Evil series was back in the late 90’s-early 00’s for the PS1 and PS2. It seems like Resident Evil 2 was the game that overshadowed almost every other entry from the series up until RE 4 was released back in 2005. One of the few entries within the Resident Evil series that sometimes gets overlooked is Resident Evil- Code:Veronica which was released for Dreamcast back in the year 2000. Resident Evil- Code Veronica was released about a year after RE3: Nemesis came out for the PS1 back in ’99 and is often looked at as one of the most underrated entries within the series. Resident Evil- Code: Veronica had Claire Redfield as the main character with the plot revolving around her being imprisoned on Rockfort Island after infiltrating an Umbrella facility in Paris. Claire had to join forces with another inmate named Steve Burnside in order to breakout of prison after the outbreak of the deadly T-Virus on island where the prison is located. There were so many features about the Code-Veronica game that looked impressive including graphics, dialogue and how smooth the cutscenes had looked. The cinematic presentation of Resident Evil: Code- Veronica felt ahead of its time with the game itself probably being the best survival horror title of 2000. In fact, there are a handful of people who would go on record and argue that Code-Veronica was one of the most difficult entries within its series. Even though, Resident Evil: Code-Veronica did not have the same level of commercial success as Resident Evil 2 from ’98 but it managed to rival the likes of Shenmue in terms of popularity for the Sega Dreamcast.
