Description of Virtua Cop 2

Read Full Description

Virtua Cop 2 (a.k.a. Virtua Squad 2) is a faithful PC port of SEGA's arcade hit of the same name, a "rail shooter" played from a first-person perspective, except this time you no longer can shoot with the arcade gun.

Virtua Cop 2 follows the lives of three officers and their exploits in the field of crime fighting. You can only play this game with up to two players, though. The graphics in this game easily surpasses those of the original Virtua Cop. Instead of gangsters who look like they are all related, there are many different kinds enemies, including soldiers, the cargo loader from Aliens, and even George Michael (well, someone who looks like him anyway). These characters know their parts well and always get to their entrances on time. They even fall off buildings and crash through conveniently placed wooden crates.

The details are also very well done. For example, the enemies react differently depending on where you hit them. Shoot them in the groin and they will fall forward, clutching themselves in agony. Shoot them in the head, and you will see it snap and the body fall backward in realistic motion. There are also many more interactive backgrounds than in the first game: you can crash windows, lighting fixtures, or even make cars jackknife across the road by shooting their tires. Although the graphics are a bit out-of-date especially compared with 3D-accelrated marvels today, the details of polygons and their animations in Virtua Cop 2 are certainly second to none.

The big "gunsight" is carried forward from Virtua Cop into this sequel. Although I find it a tad too big and annoying, it becomes necessary to leave it on, especially when there are multiple enemies on the screen at once. Without the gunsight, you won't know which one to shoot first. Anyone who likes a steep challenge can turn the gunsight off in the options menu.

A welcome new feature in Virtua Cop 2 is the ability to choose between two different paths per level. Similar to House of The Dead, this adds considerably replayability to the game, although the levels in Virtua Cop 2 are disappointingly short and the alternate paths aren't too different (they converge towards the end of each level anyway so you can meet the 'boss' enemy).

Overall, I find Virtua Cop 2 to be fun and entertaining while it lasts, although the replayability could have been much better. Games like this are fine in the arcades, where you can spend a dollar for a few games and then walk away. Here, you're being asked to spend forty dollars (well, zero now, since SEGA has long discontinued the PC version) for a game that has only three levels.

Although the graphics is excellent and the game has a good feel to it even when played with a mouse, Virtua Cop 2 isn't really worthy of our Top Dog tag due to the game's brevity and repetitive gameplay. If you like rail shooters, House of the Dead series offer much more value for your gaming time.

If any of yall have issues make sure to read the abandonware guide and follow the ISO install section. You need a third party program to mount the ISO.

TTriser 2023-10-26 0 point Windows version

Is it just me or is the ISO version hosted here corrupted? I can't mount it at all.

Works flawlessly without doing nothing special on Windows 11.

Unfortunately it doesn't work on Windows10 with a USB mouse, even with the fix, it keeps looking for an old PS2 Port mouse.

For anyone getting the "This app can't run on your PC" error when installing, instead of running the setup file just copy the "AREA51" folder from the disc to C:\AREA51. Then run the game! You'll have to create your own shortcut.

Though it isn't compatible with this particular game, anyone looking to use TWO light guns on other games (such as the House of the Dead series and more) should look into the "TroubleSHOOTER" application.

Only the rip version works for me (Win 10). It has no music.
I played this back on 2004 from my dad pc. I played it so much i can still remember some of the secret spots.

This plays lame gangta rap from the early 2000s in the background at an absolutely ridiculously loud level, and there's no way to turn it off. DO NOT DOWNLOAD!

I first played this in a pay-to-play game zone in a multiplex when I was 5. I later began playing it when I was in 4th grade. I felt like taking a small trip down the memory lane, so I got it here.
