Released in March 2003, Virtua Cop 3 might be one of the last titles to become an arcade phenomenon. Published by Sega and developed by Sega AM2, the game was the franchise's previous entry. It was a title that had unique hardware at the time and depended on a light gun to shoot enemies on screen. Virtua Cop 3 offered players a single-player and multiplayer experience and was playable on physical arcades. Veteran gamers will remember that it came in a deluxe or standard cabinet.

Stand Up and Shoot!

Virtua Cop 3 embraces what its predecessors started, with players aiming and shooting their light-gun towards the screen. The entirety of gameplay revolves around how great your aim is, as there isn't any control over directions or the camera. Players are guided through different levels as enemies pop out of hiding and try to kill the players. Precision and speed are essential for gamers to maintain their lives.

A new mechanic is introduced here for the first time, the so-called "bullet time ." This mechanism resembles many of the ones present in the Matrix movies and allows players to slow down time while they shoot bad guys out. This is done by pressing down on a unique pedal, and its duration is dependent on how much of the meter the players have available. How that meter is replenished is through gameplay and eliminating more bad guys.

The Missions, The Guns, The Game

New weapons mean a novelty in the gameplay, and players have more options to face each mission. Virtua Cop 3, for the first time, allows players to switch guns during gameplay. There are five unique weapons for players: H&K g36c, H&K MP&, Benelli Super 90, and the Smith & Wesson Model 629.

The game itself has three main chapters and follows the story of agents Janet Marshall, James Cools, and Michael Hardy as they investigate the three main crime scenes of the game. As Virtua City's newest criminal organization, the ECM, starts to ramp up its activities, players are tasked with stopping the violence.

Chapters, or levels, can be played in whichever order players want to. They are from easiest to harder the "Angel Allow," "Stray Cat," "Owl Strike," and the secret mission "Heaven's Door." This final level has specific requirements to unlock and contains the true ending for Virtua Cop 3.

Summary

There is much to love about this game, especially when coupled with the rarity and nostalgia factor that comes with it. The game has become tough to find, and the ported version that was supposed to come never actually game.

8

If players have the opportunity to see an arcade or a version of the game that they can enjoy, this is a definite must-play. This will feel awesome to play if you have enjoyed House of The Dead or Time Crisis as a franchise!
