Super Replay – Resident Evil Code: Veronica

by Tim Turi on Dec 05, 2014 at 08:00 AM

Earlier this year we relived the Mansion Incident by simultaneously playing through both the 1996 and 2002 versions of Resident Evil. Months later we're still retreading the series' past, this time with the HD remake of the 2000 Dreamcast title Resident Evil Code: Veronica. We're joined by a special guest from Capcom as we return to Claire Redfield's second adventure, which shares surprising parallels with her new starring role in Resident Evil Revelations 2 (check out our cover story reveal).

Both Code: Veronica and Revelations 2 begin with Claire waking up on a remote prison island, locked away in a dirty prison cell. Resident Evil Revelations 2 producer Michiteru Okabe also says Revelations 2 has a strong focus on family - a powerful theme running throughout Code: Veronica as well. That's only the beginning of the many similarities we spot throughout our tense playthrough of one of Resident Evil's most punishing, lengthy entries.

Join Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, Kim Wallace, myself, and special guest Capcom community manager Brett Elston (check out Capcom-Unity here!) as we return to Rockfort Island.
