The "Die Hard" branding was only added as a last minute edition in western countries: The game was developed and sold in Japan as an original IP called "Dynamic Cop". For the sequel Sega would drop the branding and released the game everywhere as "Dynamic Cop 2". See more »
So there you are. You got here just in time! This whole building will explode in five minutes. But you won't end to see it anyway!

You can't walk past this game without giving it a shot; the marquee with the exploding Nakatomi building, the speakers, the ostentatious-yet-still-unassuming cabinet art ... It's that feeling of excitement that they actually paid attention to this license and gave it an exciting coin-op treatment. Then you actually start playing it, and the whole thing's just surreal. "Die Hard Arcade" is a run-of-the-mill beat 'em up with a generic muscle bound hero in a wife beater. Lots of running in this game. You dash through the building issuing beatdowns to other not-from-the-movie bad guys, and the character models are right out of Virtua Fighter. It's kinda absurd, but the sort of craziness that needs to be tried out at least once.
