If you liked the first Dynamite Deka, then Deka 2 will surely please. Fans of hack 'n slash games will want it as well. DD2 is everything the first game was plus better graphics, more characters, enemies, weapons and moves. The game's only downside (for some people) is that you can finish a single mission in about 30 minutes. If that doesn't float your boat, then it might be a great rental...
Super Play
Dynamite Cop är, oavsett om man spelar ensam eller tillsammans med en vän, det i särklass röjigaste spelet till Dreamcast just nu. Det är inte många spel som har samma extrema actionkvaliteter som Dynamite Cop. Det är intensivt och underhållande och trots att det är snabbt avklarat och inte så många banor är det ändå ett spel man återvänder till, om och om igen.
Dynamite Cop ist wirklich schwer zu beurteilen. Technik und Gameplay kann man eigentlich nicht groß bemängeln. Selbst der Spielspaß stimmt (vor allem zu zweit). Billige Sprüche, komische Animationen, seltsame Mutantengegner und Waffen, die man nicht für möglich gehalten hätte, sorgen für viele Lacher. Der äußerst geringe Umfang nagt jedoch zu sehr am Langzeitspaß und dementsprechend an der Wertung. Zu schnell hat man alles gesehen und zu schnell wird´s langweilig. Trotzdem, irgendwie ist das Spiel Kult und hat es deswegen verdient, hin und wieder mal (zum Abreagieren) ins Laufwerk gelegt zu werden.
Mélange de Double Dragon, de Golden Axe et de Virtua Cop, Dynamite Cop est une bien jolie surprise ! Quelques petits problèmes de jouabilité et d'intérêt, à la longue, n'entament pas trop l'enthousiasme des joueurs, car c'est vraiment de la dynamite ! Et puis on s'amuse pendant toute la partie, tant les développeurs ont fait preuve d'humour et de second degré. En achetant Dynamite Cop, vous ne regretterez pas, la Dreamcast est ici bien exploitée ; en un mot : c'est l'arcade à la maison !
Dynamite this game may be, but it has far too short fuse and leaves the player feeling a little cheated, there just isn’t enough here to hold interest.

Deka 2 is niet meer dan een kloon van Die Hard Trilogy. Er zijn minder levels maar meer wapens. Het is zo'n beetje als bij de betaalde liefde: veel plezier voor een korte periode (klaar in een wip). Na het spel twee of drie keer te hebben uitgespeeld, gaat het allemaal verschrikkelijk vervelen.

Like many arcade game ports the game just doesn't cut it on a console in terms of replay and game length, even on high difficulty its still pretty short. In an arcade this kind of length is perfectly acceptable, but not so much when it comes to a home console. And speaking of the arcade edition, if you've played it and beaten it (especially with friends) then you really don't need to bother with this direct port. It would have been nice had they added support for an extra player, since there are three characters available, something that would have set it apart from the arcade version. If you haven't played it and can pick it up cheap then it's certainly a fun, if a bit of a short trip.
Player One
350 balles pour un soft qui se finit, dès la première partie, en une heure deux minutes et trente-sept secondes, c'est volé ! Les trois missions (easy, medium et hard), divisées chacune en quatre niveaux, sont expédiées facilement. Du coup, la fille à papa, captive du méchant pirate, est libérée en moins de temps qu'il n'en faut pour recharger son pistolet. Et ce n'est pas le mode deux joueurs qui pourrait remplacer quelques niveaux supplémentaires, ou une difficulté plus conséquente !
La duración del juego es completamente ridícula, aun superando las tres misiones iniciales, difícilmente superaría la hora de juego. A pesar de tener numerosos extras: minijuegos, imágenes, cómics... es terriblemente corto, ni las tres misiones que se desbloquean al acabar las tres primeras justifican seguir jugándolo, porque las nuevas misiones no son más que versiones de las anteriores, sin apenas cambios y con una dificultad mayor, sólo si encontráis algún compañero de fatigas podréis alargar algo la vida del juego. Una auténtica lástima que algo tan fácilmente soluble como la duración, haya convertido a un buen juego en el peor beat'em up de Dreamcast.
The Video Game Critic
Oddly enough, punches inflict as much damage as gunshots! Bosses you'll face include a fat chef who tosses exploding carrots, and an enormous Kraken that somehow found its way into the engine room. This game is cheesy as hell, but if you're in the mood for goofy fighting mayhem, Dynamite Cop serves its purpose. Just don't ask me what that purpose would be.
Digital Press - Classic Video Games
Fans of the first game will be quick to pick this title up, but they'll still have to contend with the short length. A few extras hardly compensate for the lack of play time. Great graphics and solid gameplay can hardly make gamers overlook the fact that 20-minutes doesn't exactly equal $50.
Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Assigning a final score to Dynamite Cop has proven to be somewhat vexing, as although it’s of average quality, it’s sorely lacking in terms of longevity. Truthfully, there’s fun to be had here, especially in the multiplayer mode, but not in enough quantities. Additionally, if you’ve played the arcade version through to completion (or even Die Hard Arcade for that matter), it’s hardly worth a glance. To put it bluntly, Dynamite Cop is like the latest attraction at your local theme park: It is somewhat entertaining, but at the same time, hardly worth the wait, and over with way too quickly.
Planet Dreamcast
Even though Dynamite Cop is really the only brawler on the Dreamcast at the moment, it probably isn't worth your money. If you're a big fan of beat 'em ups, consider renting it for a few days. Dynamite Cop is fun in spots, but its short length and lack of depth make this one really hard to recommend. Go play Streets of Rage 2 instead.
Cincinnati Enquirer
If you’re pumping a couple of quarters into a machine as you wait for a movie to start, Dynamite Cop fits the bill. However, if you’re dropping $50 on a home game, this one falls way short.
