The newly opened complex has been taken over by a terrorist group, and it's up to you to liberate it. Enjoy an unprecedented level of interaction with the background: shoot CDs and books off of store shelves, burn racks of clothing, break glass, or slice through metal bars. Blaze through levels using double-gun shooting action with two GunCon2s to take down enemies. Several gameplay modes and score rankings add to the game's replayability. Players weapons have a realistic effect on almost everything in the environment, including items on shelves and tables, glass windows and doors, metal bars and even racks of clothing. Players who have two Guncon2s can select a single- or double-gun game. Double-gun shooting action lets players equip two GunCon2s to take down enemies John Woo style, adding a fun and unique element to the game. Many unlockable features have been included in the game, such as extra play modes, special game settings, and even new enemies, giving the game high replay value. [Namco] Collapse

  1. I am a little bummed the game came with just a Guncon pistol, as the arcade unit had a nice little MP5 approximation.

    And, of course, you can't go past the amazingly destructible environments - they'll blow you away.

    While it's always great to see an arcade title faithfully ported to a home console, Crisis Zone is nearly too arcadey for its own good as both story mode scenarios can be completed in well under an hour on the normal difficulty setting.
  4. While we're on the topic of spraying fire, Namco's made this even easier by letting you double up on your lead blasting abilities. In Crisis Zone, you can hook up a second Guncon (light gun) and go John Woo on the bad guys.
  5. An almost direct arcade port that will last a maximum of two or three hours first time through.
  6. While a solid lightgun game in the classical sense, Time Crisis: Crisis Zone just does not offer enough innovation to highly recommend it if the player already owns previous games in the franchise.
  7. 50
    It does, however, have a certain charm to its style and quirks, and those lightgun fanatics looking for something extra to test their abilities on would be well served by this offering. Anyone else is advised to look to Time Crisis 2 or Vampire Night, as both are much better showcases for the genre.

    Pretty good game with guncom... good amount of depth... but if you have played/beaten time crisis 3, it has very limited appeal... if you Pretty good game with guncom... good amount of depth... but if you have played/beaten time crisis 3, it has very limited appeal... if you have never played time crisis games, you will enjoy it.
