Great Game But VERY Short
19 April 2014
Summary: I'd always been interested in the Time Crisis series since I saw them in the arcade. I never picked one up since I didn't have a light gun for the PS2. Recently I found a copy of this one for a little over a buck so I figured I'd give it a try with the controller. I LOVED it and am really happy with the purchase. If you remember the old T2: The Arcade Game for Sega Genesis, you get the basics of this game. It plays just fine with the usual controller.
Summary: Crisis Zone is pretty much Time Crisis on adrenaline. It takes the two defining mechanics of the series, ducking & shooting, & injects them with a hearty dose. Now, instead of a six shooter pistol you have a fully automatic machinegun & instead of ducking behind a nearby object you are mobile with an invincible riot shield. This means the playfield often moves during the action as opposed to the more static angles of previous entries.
Summary: This game was good in the arcade and could have possibly been good on the playstation 2, however, there is an added effect on the playstation 2 version which cannot be turned off at all. Every time you pull the trigger to shoot, there is a hazy smoke that instantly fills the screen and makes it near impossible to see what your shooting at. I wouldn't waste your time or money on this game.
Summary: Crisis Zone was actually a stand alone Guncon Shooter that was not originally apart of the Crisis Zone series. It was so popular in the arcades (I know 'cause I blew tons of quarters on this arcade) that Namco decided to incorporate it into the Crisis Zone series. I thought it had hints of Crisis zone 2 but, it was overall much better than the popular series of shooters.
Summary: This game is probably my favorite time crisis game. The basic game play is the same with one huge exception, you have unlimited machine gun rounds. Gone is the need to save amunition for a particular time. Once you beat arcade mode you unlock crisis mode and play with every weapon with unlimited ammo. There are also timed modes, special weapons modes and enough other unlockables to keep this game fun longer than most.
Summary: I recieved this game, and was excited to play. Could not get the guncon to work. After reading the manual, in very small print it states not compatible eith HD tvs. I was not aware of this. I tried to contact seller to return product, who offered no help other than to try again to make it work. It didnt of course. The seller would not reply to my emails, and now im stuck with a game I cant use. do not buy from dkahn927!!!!!
Summary: DECEPTIVE ADVERTISING WARNING: I take whatever is listed on the box with a grain of salt, and in this case the 'Dual-Guncon' mode is actually unlocked once you reach 60% completion in the Story Mode. Even then I wouldn't depend on that for co-op play. THIS IS NOT A TWO PLAYER GAME, IT IS ONE PLAYER ONLY!!! If you want co-op then get Time Crisis 3 as that is a pretty solid game.
Summary: Just like the old PS1 version there is apparently no way to save your progress, even though a memory card is required. Every time I start I must begin again. I don't have a 6-hour block to dedicate to winning a game, thats ridiculous.
