Did You Know?


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 »

Arcade Beat em' Up
4 August 2002 | by (IL) – See all my reviews

Storyline: When detective John McClane though the Nakatomi Plaza incident was over, he was wrong. His wife still works there, but a band of terrorists have took control and have 24 hostages including the president's daughter.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----- Gameplay: Known as Dynamite Deka in Japan, Sega decided to create alittle buzz around this title by bringing the Die Hard license in and making the storyline evolve around the Die Hard series. If your into Beat-Em-Uppers, then you'll love this title. If your just a plain old Die Hard fan like myself, I guess its a good game though it has hardly anything about Die Hard in it except the cool box art and trademark sleeveless shirt. If you took a 2D Beat-Em-Upper and added great 3D graphics, you'd get this slightly side scrolling fighting game. the main object is just to go around defeating all the bad guys in each area. Almost anything seen around can be used as a weapon, or has secret power-ups or hand guns hidden in them. The cutscenes are a okay addition to make the storyline easy to follow and very simple. Looks like the main honcho is looking to grab the goods in the Nakatomi Plaze like are old buddy Hans Gruber did, or tried to do.

Theres hundreds of different moves you can use to fight off bad guys, including pushing them to the ground and arresting them. Guns, hair spray, pipes, lighters, and almost any kind of thing that can be used as a weapon can be found. The game works in areas, kill all the bad guys and you go to a new area/room.

If your a Die Hard fan, this doesn't really do the Die Hard world as much justice as it should, but its a great game for your Die hard collection. Theres also a side game, which is Deep Scan, a classic Sega game that gives you credits for the main game, and two players in the main game in case you and a friend wanna give it a go.
