Ready to kick some more terrorist butt? In Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas for the PlayStation, you'll reprise the role of John McClane as you lay waste to the threats and save innocent people along the way — this time in the Sin City capital of the world: Las Vegas, Nevada. The game comes packaged as a three-in-one deal, just like the original Die Hard Trilogy, for a total of 25 non-stop action-packed levels.
The first game, Movie Mode, plays in the third-person with a story behind it. McClane attends a party by a friend in the city of lights, but unfortunately a riot breaks out of the Mesa Grande Prison and he's caught between a rock and a hard place. No more holidays for our restless hero as he takes on guards, grunts, prisoners, thugs, bio-specialists, enforcers and even spec ops! Complete with CG cut-scenes, voices galore and two new camera angles, you must make your way through various obstacles alone while killing terrorists and rescuing hostages. But no evildoer gets by that easily when McClane is in town!
The second mode lets you become a Sharpshooter, Virtua Cop-style. This time, there's more to it than meets the eye as 3D enhancements pump up the visuals of Neon City like never before. Be sure to wipe out any and all threats while shooting up boxes that may contain weapons, cans of WhoopAss (from Jones Soda Co.), medical kits or bullet proof vests. You're going to need more than peripheral vision if you want to live, as bosses and others ruin the party. Who's going to pay for all of this?
The third mode involves Extreme Driving, like in the previous version. You'll be chasing down bomb-rigged cars and must take them out before they destroy the whole city. Avoid obstacles that can ruin your vehicle as you collect pick-ups such as Time Added clocks, Nitros and Repair wrenches. Watch out for ordinary pedestrians on the streets, however!
This one-player game uses one block of memory and is mouse, vibration and analog compatible. It also supports any standard or synchronized light gun controllers. Ready to die? Gamble with Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas on a crash-course through the city of lights. McClane is back! ~ Cal Nguyen, All Game Guide
