Resident Evil – Code: Veronica
I’ve decided to include a (short) post on RE:CV into my attempt on introduce/reintroduce the world of RE to fans/rookies alike.
To be honest, it would be disrespectful if I didn’t include this installment. I’d go so far as to say that this was one of the finest REs ever created by Capcom, and the last of the “golden era” perfected by the accumulated experience over the previous three generations.
Be sure to go for the ‘complete’ edition, with enhanced visuals and bundled with extra content, I promise it’d be worthwhile. This game is also available on the DreamCast console, if that beast by SEGA still fires up, then you should seriously consider getting it:
