Dynamite Cop. Don't bother defusing this bomb.
I liked the arcade version of Die Hard. Dynamite Cop I believe is supposed to be the sequel to Die Hard Arcade, but at the time of its release Sega had lost the Die Hard license, so instead we have Dynamite Cop. I had never played Dynamite Cop prior to buying it. TBH, this game kind of blows.
The game is extremely short. The controls are very loose, meaning you feel pretty disconnected from the beat em up action on screen. For Dreamcast standards, the graphics do not measure up. I felt like I was playing an N64 game. Though, this game isn't a complete steaming pile of junk.
For the right price, it's not a bad game. I got it for under 10 bucks, which included shipping. I think that was a fair price for this game and what it offers. It has a cheesey, it's so ridiculous it's kind of cool, storyline (pirates take over a cruise ship and it's your job to rescue the president's daughter who is hiding in a suitcase). It has 2 player co-op, and considering the short length of the game, it can be a fun experience with a friend that won't take all afternoon to beat. There's unlockable artwork based off of items you find in the game, so it has some low/moderate replay value.
All in all, it's not the worst game I ever played, but it's pretty disposable. If you're looking for a better Dreamcast beat'em up, I'd recommend Zombie Revenge (which isn't perfect either, but in comparison, it's better than Dynamite cop). I'm sure I'll play Dynamite Cop from time to time, but when I do, it won't be for more than 30 minutes at a time. Dynamite Cop-Definitely not the Dreamcast at its finest, but may be worth a shot if you can get it on the cheap. Have a good one!!!Read full review
