Arriving at her company Christmas party high atop the Nakatomi Plaza, his efforts are interrupted when a group of highly trained, highly armed professional thieves seize the skyscraper as part of a daring heist. This plan is flawless except they didn't count on you... the fly in the ointment, the monkey in the wrench... you are John McClane - jetlagged, barefoot, and out of your jurisdiction. Over 30 single-player levels -- explore 40 floors of the Nakatomi Plaza, inspired by the building featured in the Die Hard movie. [Sierra] Expand

  1. Not only did I manage to get my "Action Hero" fix, but also I managed to feel just as exhilarated as I did when I watched the movie for the first time.
  2. It's a solid first-person shooter with some hours of shooting fun with at least one odd design decision.
  3. Reasonably fun, but don't expect the level of immersion and polish found in other PC action games such as "No One Lives Forever" or "Jedi Knight II."

    Rather than being out and out frustrating, Die Hard is really just an exercise in tedium.
  5. What isn't quite so entertaining is the reliance on essentially one weapon. [Sept 2002, p.86]
  6. A straight vanilla shooter. It does many things well, many things not so well, but nothing exceptionally.
  7. Simply a sub-par first-person shooter.

    Great game but difficult and there are quite a few glitches which will get on your nerves. If your in the mood for a good shooter with pretty Great game but difficult and there are quite a few glitches which will get on your nerves. If your in the mood for a good shooter with pretty good graphics (and will still run on lower end PC's) then buy this. Voice acting is good. Its like being in the movie! Expand

    Really bad game. Ugly graphics, nothing to see. You only see the same hallways over and over again, you never go outside the building. It isReally bad game. Ugly graphics, nothing to see. You only see the same hallways over and over again, you never go outside the building. It is also too difficult, I used Godmode. No atmosphere. Expand
