Die Hard Trilogy is an incredible value when you consider it consists of three completely separate games, including a third-person shooter, a light-gun shooter, and a driving game. Each of them are of exceptional quality, featuring top-notch graphics and exceptional control.

Finally, a game has been developed that's truly good as the film it's based on. Die Hard Trilogy is one of the finest titles I've seen since I started in the business over a year ago. Fox has gone out and hired Probe to develop a game so amazing that every Playstation owner on God's Earth will undoubtedly buy it.

Fans of Bruce Willis and the Die Hard movies are going to be in PSX heaven with this 3-in-1 package from Fox Interactive. Probe went absolutely nuts with the possibilities for the license and came out producing 3 separate competent and extremely enjoyable diversions. Because each of the three components in the package works so well, I think gamers are going to have a tough time deciding just which of these three installments they enjoy the most. I'd say this is the greatest compliment I can bestow upon the fabulous Die Hard Trilogy.

The bottom line on Die Hard Trilogy is simple: if you enjoy arcade-style action, want a game that takes a long, long time to beat, and want three times the gaming value, then run out and purchase DHT today. With intense and addictive gameplay, first-rate graphics and beautiful explosions, you'll find your money well spent. The addition of a great soundtrack and what sounds like the actual voice of Bruce Willis is just the icing on the cake. Playing DHT will make you feel like you're living the Die Hard series all over again. I rate this game as an absolute must-play with a score of 94. This almost perfect score was only marred a few points for high system requirements and a few points for weak-sounding weaponry. Other than that, Yippie-Ki-Yay!

One word of warning, however: All three games are fairly hard, and there's no adjusting the difficulty. That, combined with the outrageous violence (smashing into pedestrians and using your wipers to get the blood off your windshield), makes Die Hard Trilogy inappropriate for young children. For older gamers, though, this is the cream of the crop of console action games, and easily one of the best ever. Yippe-kai-ay!!!

So there you have it, three superb games that, individually, are thoroughly enjoyable and challenging, but combined make a monster movie hit. Whether you’re a fan of the films or simply looking for a grade A PlayStation title to test the mettle of any action fan, Die Hard Trilogy delivers the goods. Fox Interactive has an adrenaline pounding title on their hands, and are guaranteed to make a barrel load of cash and keep happy punters busy for months to come. Live fast, die hard!

Die Hard Trilogy is great. It's also a bargain, with three games in one. So if you don't mind a little blood and carnage, go buy that extra clip for your submachine gun and get ready for some high caliber fun and a death count that makes Rambo look like a pacifist.

Fans of the movie will love the premise --- everyone else may find the game a rehash of past titles.

Each game on their own would be an epic fail on the part of the developers, but putting all three together somehow creates a monster that is far better than the sum of its parts. I had Die Hard Trilogy when it first came out and enjoyed it immensely, and now, 17 years later, it is still entertaining me, only this time I find it even more amusing thanks to the shonky and incredibly dated visuals. Die Hard Trilogy will keep you entertained and make you laugh (often for the wrong reasons), which is the exact same thing that could be leveled at the first three movies - and just like those cinematic offerings, it is something that you can come back to time and time again.

Each of these games is good enough to package and sell on its own. This was a great idea by the minds a Fox to give gamers an excellent value for their money. At least one of the three games will appeal to everyone and you will have a good time arguing which game is the best of the trio. All three of the games are long, involved and good. I would have expected at least one dud out of the three, but that's not the case. I think you will be happy with this purchase.

Resumiendo, no deja de ser una oferta super interesante, aunque lo cierto es que no llega a las cotas de calidad de la versión PSX. Una lástima.

Die Hard is probably the weakest of the three, but is still playable enough. And while each is also repetitive in itself, you can switch between styles of gameplay when you're bored. Even as a standalone Virtua Cop-style shooter, Die Harder would be the best on the pc. And Die Hard With A Vengeance, despite its absurd premise, isn't bad. So if you can live with the gore, and you have a 3d card, get out there and start releasing some tension.

Die Hard Trilogy is an action packed feast and with three distinctive modes is well worth the price of admission.

In conclusion, Die Hard Trilogy is one of the best games for the PlayStation. This game is fun, varied, and long enough to last almost a lifetime...or surely a good year! Besides, you're getting three great games for the price of one!

Fangen wir mit dem Positiven an: Die Hard Trilogy ist grafisch recht gut gelungen. Man hat das Gefühl, live dabei sein zu dürfen. Auch der Soundtrack und die FX sind passend und unterstützen das, was auf dem Bildschirm abgeht stilgerecht. Problematisch wird es aber beim Gameplay: Fordert der erste Teil noch Geschick, Planung und Kombinationsgabe, geht es bei Teil Zwei nur noch um sinnloses Abballern. Teil Drei setzt dem Trio die Krone dadurch auf, daß in der Ego-Perspektive das Blut angefahrener Passanten an die Windschutzscheibe des Fahrzeuges klatscht und der Scheibenwischer dieses eben mal wegwischt. Anfangs machen die Games ja noch Spaß und man kann sich eines Splattergrinsens nicht erwehren, aber nach einiger Zeit stellt sich der Öde-Effekt ein, und den kann ich mir auch bei Revolution X holen. Ich warte schon jetzt auf die Kommentare der Konkurrenz, die entweder vor Blutgeilheit oder Moralstimmen triefen werden. Auf jeden Fall ist das Spiel Geschmacksache.

Voor iemand met een stevige PC is de Die Hard Trilogy een zeer veelzijdig spel wegens de drie verschillende genres die de drie episodes omvatten. Het geheel is met een behoorlijke scheut humor overgoten, die soms echter meer naar het sadistische ontaardt. Goede muziek en stemsamples zijn een sterke troef, maar de loodzware systeemeisen doen het spel eigenlijk de das om. En hoewel er sommige spellen zijn die je doen hunkeren naar een sterkere PC, deze trilogie is niet overtuigend genoeg om geld uit te geven aan een nieuw moederbord en een MMX processor...

Some will argue that Die Hard is nothing but pure action, and they're right. But that's what makes it so much fun. Like the movies, it's one adrenaline-pumping sequence after another.

Kontrollen er ikke i top. McClane har det med at sejle, og man kommer alt for nemt til at overstyre, hvis ikke skærmopdateringen er helt flydende. De tre spil har desuden den ulempe, at de hver især bygger på koncepter, som andre spil har udvist noget bedre resultater med.

I enjoy Vengence still, but the other two are now tiresome,still I can`t complain, at three for the price of one at least one came up trumps.

As you would expect from the title, Die Hard Trilogy offers three games in one, each based off of one of the films in the series. Die Hard has you running through the floors of Nakatomi tower, freeing hostages and shooting terrorists, in an early third-person adventure. Die Harder borrows liberally from Virtua Cop, and is an on-rails arcade shooter through a hijacked airport on Christmas Eve. Die Hard with a Vengeance requires fast, arcade reflexes to drive through various sections of New York and disarm bombs or speeding bomb cars. Each is a vastly different title from the others (which will make this a long review), but they are all connected in their frenzied action and over-the-top mayhem.

Älskar du Die Hard-filmerna, våldsamheter och har en snabb dator kan du få kul med Die Hard Trilogy, åtminstone några timmar. Men det är inget spel jag skulle köpa till en åttaåring.

Die Hard Trilogy accurately follows the plots of the movies — you hunt down various bad guys with bad accents in an office building, in an airport, and on the streets of New York City. But it lacks the series' wit and ingenuity, not to mention voice-overs from any of the original actors. All brawn and no brain.

Die Hard Trilogy has been sabotaged - by shoddy graphics. It more than achieves its ambitious goal of providing three complete, stylistically distinct games on one CD. Unfortunately, in two of the three, drowsy frame rates and unresponsive control poisoned what could have been the sleeper classic for the Saturn.

Eine alte Computerspiel-Bauernregel besagt: Je simpler das Gameplay, desto imposanter muß die Grafik sein, damit Spaß aufkommt. Nun, “Die Hard Trilogy“ baut in allen drei Teilen auf eher ordinäre Spielprinzipien, während das optische Gesamtbild allenfalls als mäßig zu bezeichnen ist. Wie kommt‘s? Das Playstation-Original war mit seinen transparenten Riesenexplosionen, Rauchschwaden, Glasscheiben und Schatten eine wahre Spezialeffekt-Kanone. Diese Art von Eye Candy wurde bei der PC-Umsetzung ersatzlos gestrichen, dennoch läuft sie auf einem 100 MHz-Pentium nicht einmal in niedriger Auflösung flüssig. Wer einen 3D-Hardwarebeschleuniger hat, ist wenig besser dran, bis auf— völlig verbuggte — Texturfilterung nutzt das Programm lediglich das höhere Berechnungstempo dieser Karten. Als Konsolenteam hat Probe sich einen Namen gemacht, in Sachen Windows fehlt noch ein ganzes Stück Coding-Kompetenz— oder ist vielleicht Direct3D schuld?

Without the patch the game suffers horribly. With the patch, the game is decent but still worse compared to the PlayStation version, which doesn't even have the benefits of hardware 3D acceleration like those for PCs. So whatever happened in the transition, it just didn't make it all the way across. But if you're still interested in trying it out, by all means you'll definitely cure your curiosity, but don't cry when it starts to test your patience.

Was lange währt, wird endlich Blut. Die Die-Hard-Trilogy ist wahrlich kein Fall für zartbesaitete Gemüter oder gar Kinder. Spätestens, wenn ich einen Passanten nach dem anderen überfahren muß, matschige Blutspritzer die Windschutzscheibe verunstalten und das Programm den Gnadenschuß für Terroristen fordert, hört bei mir der Spaß auf. Kein Wunder, daß Electronic Arts von einer offiziellen Distribution in Deutschland freiwillig abgesehen hat.
