    I've scored it low in the Overall category simply because it's a relatively short game and some of the cutscenes aren't all that great. Not to mention that the premise is anything but innovative.

    Another decent GunCon arcade experience from Namco, which shoots all of the (now very familiar) lightgun game boxes. Fun for a while, certainly, but there are no surprises. [Dec 2003, p.107]

    This shooter's probably the best out there for the PS2, and the best ever on a console with the exception of "Elemental Gearbolt." The driving mission where you blow up the Jeeps is probably my favorite sequence ever in a light gun game.

    The most welcome addition to the series are the highly interactive backgrounds of Namco's arcade classic "Crisis Zone." [Nov 2003, p.84]
