In Die Hard, you must save a high-rise from eminent explosion. The "vanishing wall" feature ensures McClane is never out of sight as he navigates through obstacles, shooting at plants, walls, and anything in sight.
Die Hard 2: Die Harder leads you to challenge terrorists in a hijacked airport. Build your own arsenal varying in power, response, ammo, and auto fire rate. The difficulty increases as your game progresses with terrorists at every turn. The detailed 3-D levels and true bullet hits help draw you in to this gaming action-adventure.
Die Hard with a Vengeance leads you into a crowded city besieged with hidden terrorist bombs. Speed through the city, locating the bombs while the detonator ticks away. Drive over 15 different trucks to race to through a realistic New York cityscape. Be smart and be quick because time is running out.
The game starts off with a whimper rather than a bang, since the first game (Die Hard) is the worst of the bunch. In this action shooter sequence, you re-create John McClane's barefoot hostage rescue mission from the first film. While this game segment is fun in short doses, the run-and-gun gameplay ultimately gets repetitive.
The second sequence Die Harder is much stronger. In fact, it is one of the best light-gun games available for the PlayStation. As with other light-gun action games, you must shoot objects as they quickly move across the screen. In this part of the game, you must shoot your way through the Dulles airport. You can play this portion of the game with the basic PlayStation controller, but we highly recommend that you invest in a light gun for maximum fun.
Die Hard with a Vengeance concludes this game on a high note. This sequence consists of an incredibly fun (and bloody) driving game that takes place in a realistic city environment with traffic, pedestrians, and New York landmarks. As a whole, this collection represents one of the best values available for the PlayStation, provided you can stomach the over-the-top violence and copious bloodshed. --T. Byrl Baker
