Fantastic game of the film. I can't believe how much
they crammed into it. We've all seen the movie, and the
game is just as much fun. You control John McLean and
the object is to rescue your wife and the other hostages
at the Nakatomi Plaza, and kill the Evil villain Hans
Gruber. This game has it all - gunfights, explosives,
hacking security systems, climbing through ventilation
shafts etc etc - I can't recommend this game enough.
The final end
... guns, baddies and
Bye, bye Rick.
A few credits
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Hard work. There's a map within the game. Its just a
matter of finding the correct objects, solving the
puzzles and getting to the bad guy in time to save your
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Just as in the film, Hans is blasted through the window
and falls to his death. John then hugs his wife and the
credits roll ("no they don't; they're static" - Vinny).
All the pics are well digitized and animated. The
perfect movie finale.
What can I say? A perfect end to a great game. It can't
get any better.
It can get better! It could have a pumping end tune,
some speech and not take so long to load. I am not
impressed at all by this ending and expect so much
more if I am to give it a top mark.
As good as you can get. Top marks for me. I recommend
you play this game. The ending is well worth checking
Neil - you been sniffin' glue? :)
UPDATE 28/05/08: Jani was
kind enough to contact us to provide us with the
following update to this ending:
"Dunno if it matters, or if you are interested in
the information... but there is one thing missing;
if you accidentally shoot Holly Gennero McClane,
that picture with not be shown in the end sequence."
certainly does matter, Jani! Many thanks for sharing
that important information with us all.
