Great on rails shooter
The Virtua Cop series put you in the shoes of a cop, asking of you to shoot down the targets that appear in your way. However, within the game you don' control your character's movements, apart from his/her shooting reticule. All other movements, with very few exceptions are automated. Thus, the game can be very puzzle like to get through, very arcade style. But, even within such a limited array of freedoms, the developers still managed to incorporate a lot of diverse gameplay situations. You have the classic, shoot the bad guys, spare the civilians, you have timed sequences, you have to shoot bombs, cars, flying debris and other things that rush towards you while making sure to time your shoots as well as possible, to avoid running empty mid fight. Graphically, the game is amazingly retro good. Yes, there are textures that look rather dated and the low polygon count won't entice Super HD freaks, but the game has a style that on-rail shooter fanatics will immediately recognize and fall in love with. So, without a question, Virtua Cop 2 as well as the original offers and enticing, well balanced and always fun game, to keep you at the edge of your seat.
