Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Die Hard. 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 sequence ...

... guns, baddies and broken glass.

Bye, bye Rick.

"Yippee kie-yay mother ducker"

A few credits (static).

The End.

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 wife.

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.


NEIL: What can I say? A perfect end to a great game. It can't get any better.

WEB MASTER: 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.


NEIL: As good as you can get. Top marks for me. I recommend you play this game. The ending is well worth checking out.

WEB MASTER: Neil - you been sniffin' glue? :)

NEIL'S G.E. RATING: 10 / 10

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."

It certainly does matter, Jani! Many thanks for sharing that important information with us all.
