Medium Stage Review of Virtua Cop 2 Playing Game

In my previous post I have already review the beginner stage of Virtua cop 2 game. I have already announced that there are three stages in the game. The game introductions have been also written by me in my previous post. So, I am going to review its medium stage of Vcop 2 game.

medium-stage-of-virtua-cop

The medium stage of the arcade game begins from outside of a house and end at another outside of the house. Main fight is in the house. In this stage you will get light gun and machine gun to shoot your enemies.

ready-to-fight-in-medium-stage-of-virtua-cop-2

The medium plot of the computer game has been also created very carefully. In each stage of the game you will get your report of “score”, “gangsters”, “civilians”, “shots”, “hits” and “accuracy”. So, make sure during the shooting that you have not to kill civilians and targets only gangsters by only on bullet. If you do like so then your accuracy and score will increase.

stage-report-of-virtua-cop-2

If you shoot civilian then you will loose a credit. In this plot you will get 2 scenes. After crossing 2nd scenes in the last you have to fight with your boss. In this stage boss are very active because they are not one. They will fire on you together. So, you have to shoot their all fire very sincerely along with reload your bullet. If you miss, you will loose score and will be killed. So, for the stage you should save your credit from beginning.

boss-of-virtua-cop-2-of-medium-stage

Lastly, the middle stage of Virtua cop 2 is very interesting than beginner. You will enjoy very much in the end of the stage when you will fight with boss. So, from my point of view it is hard from all stage and interesting also.

To handle very effectively machine gun you should care that no one shoots you. If done so then automatically you will loose machine gun and again will get light gun.

Thumbs Up:

Although Halo 2 is equipped with every thing that a normal gamer loves; excellent graphics, superb gameplays and many more but the most impressive thing is game’s story. In many ways it is superior to Halo 1, especially actions in game are outstanding. One thing that is worth noticing is its great multiplayer support with many customization options, which was unavailable in Halo 1.

Thumbs Up:

Halo 1 is one of the best first person shooter, focusing on combat in 3D environment. Plot of Halo 1 is great with engaging story. Advanced weapons used in Halo 1 are great, each with different features, abilities and above all have a unique purpose. Game features various vehicles such as, Armored Jeeps (Warthog), Tanks (Scorpion), Alien Hovercraft (Ghost), and Aircraft (Banshee). Flying on Ghost and Banshee is really very exciting, but you need good skills to master these vehicles. The best thing about the combat is that artificial intelligence in Halo 1 is heavily supported. Combat becomes exciting when enemies take covers, use suppressive fire and grenades, and sometimes when their superiors are killed they retreat. This gameplay demands the player to be very tactical and increases the pleasure of combat and to win. Locations and scenes where combat takes place are really well designed and look great.
