Video Game Vault - Virtua Cop 2

Here's another Saturn VGV for ya!

Despite detecting some hate towards the game, it's a vid about a Saturn game, and that's always worth posting.

Talking about VC2, I think I've played every version of that game except the Saturn one! This includes the original arcade version, the Dreamcast port (available in Japan as a stand-alone game and in the US as part of the Sega Smash Pack collection, us Europeans were left out) and the PS2 one, available as part of the rather great Virtua Cop Elite Edition compilation. Well, when I finally get a Saturn gun I promise to grab this game, along with my other favourite The House of the Dead.

By the way, since I'm not a contributor to the Dreamcast Junkyard, here's a nice VGV of Power Stone. Maybe Father can post it there where it belongs ;)

Haha, very nice Video. I really like lightgun shooters. Gotta play "Virtua Cop" again. Dunno why they'd prefer "House Of The Dead", tho. The Saturn port is technically far inferior to "Virtua Cop 2"

Not to mention they're pretty different games. Virtua Cop is all about action in a colourful city while HotD has that horror feeling to it, with scary enemies and lots of gore.

This game deserves far more love than the narrator in the video is showing! It's a classic!

Still you're right Nebacha, any attention that the Saturn is getting needs posting here! There's no such thing as bad publicity!

Great find Nebacha!
