Excerpt: I came across Vampire Night at an old arcade in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. I could tell that the arcade unit had seen some use over the years, but now, it was moved to a far corner, pushed aside and replaced with a fancier, brighter, properly working Time Crisis 3 machine. That Vampire Night game, with its calibration that was more than a hair off and a screen that was a little too dark, still seemed to cry “play me!
Excerpt: Those of you who played House of the Dead in the arcade and then on Dreamcast will appreciate the fun of seeing Sega's Vampire Night make a jump from the mall to your crib. Obviously, PlayStation die-hards didn't get a chance to play much HotD, unless it was at the arcade, so there's even more reason to love Namco for bringing this to PS2. And, for many folks it will be the first time to try out the update to Guncon for PS2.
Excerpt: To the average male gamer, one of life's greatest conundrums is the potentially cataclysmic struggle between a man's videogames and his not-interested-in-games woman. The girlfriend/spouse of a gamer sees the console as her main competitor. Every hour spent gripping a game pad is one less hour of coddling time with the honey.
Excerpt: I bet there're only three people who knew that a light-gun shooter titled Vampire Night was recently released courtesy of Sega and Namco. What's more, I bet only five people knew that Sega and Namco had a joint relationship in developing a light-gun shooter for the arcade, to be later ported over to the PS2. Sega is of course very familiar with light-gun shooters, as they have given birth to the House of the Dead series, as is Namco with their Time Crisis franchise.
Excerpt: Un village sous l'emprise de forces démoniaques, de mystérieux chasseurs de vampire dont l'identité ne demande qu'à être révélée, une pale jeune-fille qui s'évertue à rétablir la paix entre les humains et les créatures de la nuit... Bien loin de la jungle urbaine de Time Crisis 2 , le dernier jeu de tir de chez Namco quitte l'obscurité des salles d'arcade pour s'afficher au grand jour sur PlayStation 2.
