Resident Evil Code Veronica for the Dreamcast has everything a Dreamcast

owner could want in a game: Wonderful graphics, superb sound quality, an

awesome storyline, and over 30 hours of gameplay to boot. Resident Evil

Code Veronica (RE:CV) is the best survival horror game on the mass

market, and everyone who owns a Dreamcast should own it. And so should

everyone else.


The visuals in RE:CV are the some of the best on the Dreamcast. The

character models are realistic and move just like their real-life

counterparts would. The characters look real, and even the real-time

cut-scenes look better than the FMV videos in the game. RE:CV has plenty

of cool lighting and special effects. The games runs very smoothly, and

there is no slow-down at all. My only gripe is that there is some fog

deep in the background, but this is only used as a visual effect, not to

hide pop-up. Key word here: Eye-Candy.


RE:CV has some of the best sound effects I've ever heard. From zombies

wailing to bats screeching, every sound is reproduced realistically and

is crystal clear. Thank god that RE:CV is on a GD-ROM, or else the sound

quality would have greatly dropped. The music is also great. It really

sets the mood of the game, and it changes as the flow and speed of the

game changes. When an enemy approaches or you are in a boss-fight, the

music becomes tense and can really make you quiver in fear. Spectacular.


Controlling your character was always somewhat of a problem of the past,

and RE:CV is no different. Although moving your character can be

troublesome at first for beginners, vets will know it by heart, and will

have no trouble manuvering either Claire or Chris. Aiming your weapon is

simple and targeting multiple targets was never so easy. You can even

shoot two guns at once, and shoot two different enemies at the same

time, John Woo-style. This adds another element to the game, and gives

you a slight advantage in this creepy world of survival-horror.


The gameplay of RE:CV is what makes it stand out from the rest of the

pack. Yeah, the visuals are nice, but it's when you get sucked into the

Resident Evil world that you finally realize that this is as good as it

gets. The game is deep, provided you know how to use the items presented

for you, and the game has a fantasic storyline. RE:CV is an actual

sequel to Resident Evil 2, unlike Resident Evil 3. RE:CV ties up most

loose ends in the Resident Evil universe, but never fully reveals all of

Umbrella's past. This is great, because it makes you want to play more,

and therefore increasing the replay value way up. And speaking of replay

value, RE:CV has plenty. It contains of over 30 hours of gameplay, plus

extra modes that you can receive after beating the game. It comes on two

discs, and has a zapping system simliar to Resident Evil 2. Overall, the

best Resident Evil game in the series, and one of the best playing games

of all-time.


Buy it right now. Or wait until the retailers actually get some more

copies of RE:CV in stock, because it's so hot right now. :)


RE:CV is one of the best reasons to own a Dreamcast, and if you don't

own one yet, RE:CV is a game that will make you purchase a Dreamcast.
