Virtua Cop 2 is also more challenging than the first, with more hostages that get in the way. The game is longer, and the interesting scenery includes a department store, an ocean liner, and a subway. You can even choose your path at certain times, increasing the replayability. Saturn fans should not miss this game.
Game Revolution
All told, Virtua Cop 2 is the best shooter to come out for the home console systems (so far). The amazing realism combined with the beautiful graphics overwhelmingly compensate for the preposterous size of the gun (oops, I mean stunner). If you want a game that will appeal to all audiences, young and old, stop searching and pick up a copy of Virtua Cop 2.

For lightgun fans, VC2's a solid buy. Otherwise, it's short-lived but frenzied fun makes for a top Saturn rental.

«Virtua Cop» se hace la competencia a sí mismo, pues no hay otro juego de disparos capaz de igualar una calidad gráfica que no se priva de variar las animaciones de los personajes en función de los impactos y que se atreve con veloces travellings, zooms y rotaciones sin que descienda un ápice la jugabilidad. Es un juego atractivo y divertido capaz de hacerse agradable a todo tipo de público, incluidos a los que no les gustan en exceso los videojuegos.

The graphics look great, and the accuracy of the light gun is near-perfect. I like the different weapon power-ups and the different levels of difficulty - this helps the replay value. I did find myself getting a little bored the fourth or fifth time playing through the game, though.
Every time it looks as though the Saturn is faltering, another AM title comes along to re-establish why the console has so many devotees. Virtua Cop 2 is Sega par excellence. In terms of form, it is the ultimate arcade game: endlessly inventive yet driven by a narrow, simplistic plot.
The popular arcade hit Virtua Cop 2 has come to the Saturn. This incredible arcade-to-home translation has sports texture mapped graphics and faster gameplay than the original Virtua Cop. While the first Virtua Cop set a new standard for light gun shooters, Sega and the AM2 team have delivered an incredible sequel that takes the concept to a whole new level.
En conclusion, tout comme l'était Virtua Cop premier du nom, ce Virtua Cop 2 est une bonne alternative pour les mordus de ce rail-shooter qui ne souhaitent plus dépenser un rond dans une borne d'arcade. Hélas, si l'aventure s'avère divertissante pendant un temps, on en fait vite le tour et l'intérêt s'essouffle sur le long terme.
