The Die Hard movie trilogy offers viewers plenty of action, thrills, and witty one-liners; unfortunately, Fox Interactive's computer game sequel, Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas, lacks the excitement of its movie inspiration. At least the plot is consistent with the movies: NYPD Detective John McClane has once again stumbled into the wrong place at the wrong time. First it was a corporate office building at Christmas. Then it was a terrorist-packed airport. Now it's a prison riot. Die Hard Trilogy 2 features three different game modes with some occasional moments of enthralling gameplay--though none of the modes stands out as a shining example of its genre. In the third-person action-adventure mode, players control John McClane through dark, tight corridors as he battles aggressive bad guys with an assortment of weaponry, including pistols, shotguns, rifles, rocket launchers, and grenades. The sharpshooting mode emulates the gunplay found in arcade games such as Time Crisis and Virtua Cop: players glide crosshairs around the screen and blow apart enemies, tables, and walls. Finally, Die Hard Trilogy 2's extreme driving game puts McClane behind the wheel on the Las Vegas strip. Die Hard Trilogy 2's diverse game modes ensure there's something for nearly every action gamer. But the fun can't match recent PC action titles, and the game doesn't approach the excitement of the movies. Still, if you're looking for an action title with a decidedly arcade game feel (not too complex, with simple gameplay), then check out John McClane's latest heroic adventure. --Doug Radcliffe Pros: Diverse game styles keep the action interesting Based on the highly popular Die Hard movies starring Bruce Willis Movie mode blends story line and cut scenes with driving and shooting action Cons: Doesn't excel in any one game mode Visuals not up to par
