Game Play

The gameplay is similiar to Time Crisis in which you step on the "action pedal" to fire, and you release it to reload and hide from enemy fire, but this time, you are equipped with a submachine gun. The enemies are now stronger as well, as they are now wearing body armor. They have a meter above their head which shows their armor strength, and when it is empty, after taking many hits, they die.
