About The Game

Time Crisis II is a light gun-based, on-the-rails, 3-D first-person arcade video game shoot-em-up.

A top agent has been kidnapped, and a military satellite has been stolen, leaving 2 mercenaries to track them down and stop the terrorists before they can launch the satellite - and the agent - into space! Contains more of the same duck-and-cover shooting game-play that made the original Time Crisis so popular.

Tips and tricks

Be on the lookout for soldiers clothed in yellow that run past on occasion - they are hard to hit since they only appear for a very short time (and more often than not, rather far away), but shooting them successfully will net you a load of points.

None of the enemy's bullets will ever hit you unless they are accompanied by a flash of red light from their gun. So stay out of cover for as long as you can, and dodge the shot when you see it coming. This way you should be able to get through the stages without wasting too much time behind cover.

Shooting an enemy 3 times in a row nets you more points overall and counts toward your hit combo, but don't waste too much ammo or you'll find yourself reloading more often (and hence, wasting time).
