Stellar! I love everything about this game! There are three styles of play in Die Hard Trilogy 2: 3rd-person Action/Adventure mode, Sharpshooting mode, and Extreme Driving mode, all of which can be played in either an Arcade mode or a Movie mode with cut-scenes. My favorite mini-game is the 3rd-person mode. I get the same feeling playing this game as I do when playing Metal Gear Solid on the PlayStation game console...complete SWEETNESS! It's way too difficult to explain, but as John McClane, you will be venturing through the levels, pickin' up weapons and kickin' some major ass. Yippie-Ki-Yay!!!

De PC-versie van DHT 2 ziet er prima uit en zal elke PC-gamer aanspreken. De graphics zijn strak en vooral de ontploffingen een lust voor het oog. Jammer dat die stomme samples even hinderlijk zijnals op de PSX.

You'll go out with a bang in Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas if you learn to overcome some of the problems. It's no piece of cake but it's pretty fair in general. Those fans of the action-oriented genre and those who dig the movie series are going to give this one a whirl, while those who are just casual action game enthusiasts could at least get a closer look before they Die Hard. And no, there's no Elvis Presley end boss.

Lekker hersenloos knallen. Spijtig genoeg zijn er veel betere games in dit genre dan Die Hard Trilogy 2...

DHT 2 är ett helt okej actionspel som bjuder på lättsam underhållning. Det har dock inte hänt mycket med spelet sedan sist. Den enda egentliga nyheten är att de olika spelstilarna knyts samman med en riktig handling, vilken presenteras med filmsekvenser. Komiskt nog lider denna uppföljare av samma brister som föregångaren. Tills nästa gång hoppas jag på lite fler nyheter. DHT 2 rekommenderas till alla som gillar arkadaction av den "gamla goda" sorten.

Overall the game was just barely average. The best thing that could be done would to be to lose the "Trilogy" part of the name, fix the slowdowns in the sharp-shooting part and make it a pure shooter game. Unfortunately that's not what happened, and in the end the game is nothing to get excited about. If you're bored and have $30 burning a hole in your pocket, then pick up a copy; otherwise you’re better off leaving this one on the shelf and waiting for something else to come along. After all, your gonna need all that money you have to buy Diablo II, Team Fortress 2, and all those other goodies that come out at the end of the year.

Die Hard Trilogy 2 is a fun game but lacks originality with a vengeance. The graphics are a let down and ultimately the game is nothing but a quick PC port of a mediocre PlayStation game. A good rental and nothing more.

Enfin, si vous n'êtes pas trop exigeant sur la qualité et que vous cherchez avant tout à flinguer dans tous les sens sans vous prendre la tête, alors Die Hard devrait offrir un dérivatif suffisant à vos envies de meurtre.

Als men het bij het on-rails gedeelte had gehouden, had dit game makkelijk in de tachtig gescoord. Nu wordt het de dieperik in getrokken door het crash-race onderdeel (what's in a name?).

When you divide your energies between three different efforts, the end result generally proves to be one of mediocrity. Fortunately, this is not the case with Die Hard Trilogy 2, although it is unquestionably afflicted with its share of problems. The lack of a cohesive save system and its subsequently near-endless repetition mar what is an otherwise highly playable and engaging jaunt into the mile-a-minute world that is John McClane. While this action-packed title may appeal to fans of a variety of genres, those with little patience need not apply.

The saving grace of DHT2 is the shooter game, which is a nice mix of Virtua Cop and Time Crisis, something rarely seen on the PC. It may be simple, but it's done nicely, and with a mouse it plays like a dream (if not a little too easy). Nearly everything on the screen can be shot, blown up, or broken in some way by bullets, even down to tiny details like the plates and glasses in the reception hall of the prison. The addition of being able to toss grenades at enemies while you're firing may not always be helpful, but it's certainly fun, and a nice addition to the shooter genre. The graphics come across a lot better than the other segments, and the camera work really lends a cinematic feel to what should have been a cinematic game.

Alhoewel ik toch aardig wat uurtjes met het eerste deel heb doorgebracht zal dat met dit deel zeker niet lukken. Fox Interactive moest zich schamen! Ze hadden beter een recente film uit kunnen kiezen dan werd deze game tenminste wel wat meer verkocht. Eigenlijk ben ik alleen positief over de AI, hoewel deze ook niet erg bijzonder meer is voor deze tijd. Erg jammer allemaal.

Bruce, hast du das Spiel schon mal gesehen? Hast du für so was wirklich deinen Namen hergegeben? Große Knobeleien erwarte ich ja bei einem solchen Titel nicht. Aber sollten meine Herausforderung tatsächlich senile Terroristen sein, die mir zwar zeigen, dass sie im Kunstturnen in der Schule eine Drei plus bekamen, ansonsten aber dumm herumstehen? Da ist es kein Wunder, dass ich als Action-Star eine gute Figur machen. Der Shooter-Modus macht zwar kurzzeitig Spaß, ist aber allenfalls Moorhuhn-Konkurrenz. Am besten ist da noch die Auto-Verfolgungsjagd, die trotz der schlichten Grafik für Kurzweil sorgt.

The promise of three games for the price of one is appealing. Yet the notion of getting one profoundly awful game, one regular-awful game, and one just slightly awful game for the price of one decent product shouldn't appeal to anyone. Each of Die Hard Trilogy's subgames has been done better in stand-alone products that are currently available at bargain-bin prices, making your choice clear: Avoid Die Hard Trilogy 2 with a vengeance.

And there's something to be said for the blatantly mindless action that Die Hard Trilogy 2 devoutly worships. The problem is that pure action games are a dime a dozen on the PC, and it's a shame that Fox Interactive didn't bother to make this sequel anything more than a second-thought port over of the PlayStation version. With a sharper engine and more developed gameplay, this could have been a game worthy of a whole slew of new Die Hard movie sequels. As it is, though, it dies pretty easily.

The Die Hard franchise should have taken the cue from the movies and passed away a long time ago.
