    The challenging gameplay and clever game mechanics make this title stand out as a "direct hit".
  2. Only tediousness and (lack of) longevity lower the standard of what would otherwise be something of a classic shooter.
  3. Even though the lack of gun support takes away some of the appeal, Konami has done a commendable job of bringing the coin-op experience home.

    Unfortunately, it all feels a bit like a sub game because of the missing rifle.
  5. 60
    Fans of gun games would be far better served grabbing a copy of "House of the Dead 2" + Sega's gun.
  6. Control, using regular controllers for the respective systems in the absence of lightgun support, slightly favors the PS2's Dual Shock 2 due to analog/d-pad handling that FEELS a tad more precise than with the DC's stock controller.
  7. You can master the game in less than a day. Add to that the extremely substandard control, and you're left with a game that is barely worth renting.

    I had so much fun, the challenge of finshing in time and hitting the targets was overwhelming.
