[edit] Background

A terrorist group has commandeered the Garland Square retail/office complex on the outskirts of bustling, modern-day London. They have made no demands. Their motives are unknown. They are in complete control. It's up to you to liberate the Square by any means necessary.

[edit] Gameplay

Using the Guncon2, gunfire has a realistic effect on almost everything in the game: players can blow up items on shelves and tables, shatter glass windows and doors, and destroy beams, statues, and even desktop computers. The game also allows for a different mechanic from other Time Crisis games - rather than duck behind objects or take cover when under fire, your defensive move now provides a shield that allows you to see what's going on through a built-in window --more useful than simply ducking behind a barrel.

The action is set in the recently opened Garland Square complex on the outskirts of London, after the heavily-armed terrorist group U.R.D.A has attacked and taken-over the area. Their motives have yet to be discovered but as elite S.T.F (Special Tactics Force) counter-terrorism officer Claude McGarren, the player's mission is to help secure Garland Square and suppress the U.R.D.A terrorists by whatever means necessary.

Armed with a bullet-proof riot shield and a sub-machine gun, McGarren must eliminate any terrorist threats encountered through environments including a shopping mall, park and office building. Players who have two Guncon2 guns can select a single- or double-gun game to take down enemies John Woo style, adding a fun and unique element to the game. Crisis Zone will also give you 3 basic weapons - a handgun, a shotgun, and a fully automatic machine gun - to use in the story modes, and performing well in the crisis missions will give you access to even more weapons like flame-thrower, or rocket launcher.

  • Players with dual GUNCON 2s can equip both simultaneously for visceral, two-fisted, Hong Kong cinema-style shooting action.
