  1. Without the “stealth mode” gameplay, the “Hero Mode,” and the genuinely entertaining voice acting and storyline, Die Hard: Vendetta would have been simply passed off as an average FPS, if not below average.
  2. A pleasant surprise. But the stand-out moments are marred by irritating flaws and often unbearable levels of frustration. [NGC]
  3. The sad fact though is that this game could have been so much better, as it is just discouraging to see so much potential in a game, and then to not have it pull through like you would have hoped it would.
  4. By far the worst part of Vendetta is the controls. Bad graphics and sound can be forgiven if the game itself is worth playing. Unfortunately, it's hard to enjoy a game with controls as bad as this.
  5. No multiplayer support, poor controls (although it is with a GC controller, which is a losing battle in and of itself), a storyline that puts you to sleep, and puzzles that will make you give your TV the finger.
  6. The idea of taking hostages in a first person shooter is novel, and stealth also can be interesting. None of that negates the impact the auto-aim has on the game, or how frustrating the controls can be. Throw in the terrible graphics, the linear missions, and the lack of any sort of multiplayer and Die Hard Vendetta is one of the worse Gamecube FPS’s.
  7. The controls here are totally unsatisfying. Tack on narrow-minded gameplay and dim graphics and you've got a game that dies quite easily, actually.

    I love killing and it is sort or nice how generous the auto aim is if you just like quick hop in a room and kill fifteen man in 3 and when I love killing and it is sort or nice how generous the auto aim is if you just like quick hop in a room and kill fifteen man in 3 and when you get the last slow mo shot, you can still see the other 7 men dropping cuz it was down so quick and followed by silence makes you feel like you really kicked some ass, but other then that the game sucks, for many reason, can i say one thing DEAD END , they everywhere, you can only beat this game if your lucky to run into everything your sposed to do. Shit you have to cross and be precise but you cant with the dam controls. The auto jump was neat handy but i coulda easily done with out, overall killlings fun if you can get that far. dam hostages!
