Dreamcast Lightgun games

Post by Mantas » Thu Mar 01, 2007 4:35 am

Does anyone know of any good DC lightgun games. I know of Confidential Mission but can't think of any others.

How could you forget \"House Of The Dead 2\" best home light gun ever!

It also contains many of the best quotes in videogame history:

\"Please be safe G!\"

\"G's blood stains!\" (how could they tell?)

<woman on mobile phone> \"Hello?..Yes...yes...yes..aha..yes...it was Curion\"

<just after you miss the zombie that kills the woman's husband, even though you quite clearly could have shot it had you been better or cared more> \"There was nothing we could do\"

Didnt Japan get a re-release of the Virtua Cop games?

I know we got them on PS2 though.

Yes Virtua Cop either 1 or 2 came out in Japan as a stand alone, it is also featured on the Sega Collection Vol 1 that came out in the states. I don't think there were any other light games barr the 2 mentioned already.
WANTED: ANY SNES or GAMEBOY GAMES, OR EMPTY BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS, going for FULL SETS of both.

Been playing these Dreamcast lightgun games alot lately...

House Of The Dead 2
Confidential Mission
Virtua Cop 2
Death Crimson OX

I have to say, the top 2 are my favourite of them all. The fun these games have given me! Excellent stuff, and better than Time Crises ever was on my PS1.

There's a second Death Crimson game on DC too, also a JPN only release.

Bizarrely, no. Silent Scope on DC is joypad only, making it one of the most pointless games on the system.

Never really got into Confidential Mission

Guess I was spoiled by playing HOTD2 first

I always preferred Confidential Mission over HOTD2.

HOTD2 plays well enough, but its all a bit odd and the script is awful - very Japanesey.

CM is nicely polished and riffs off US spy TV/movies quite well.

I find it more satisfying to take down recognisable people instead of 'odd blobby thing number 6'.

There's always Duck Hunt on the NES emu...
