This game was a short and sweet for me. The game play might not have been the best, but it felt like the movie (at least for an NES game anyways). You start the game out by kind of wandering around, looking for something to do, whether that be killing terrorists or completeing objectives that will lead to completing the game. The game is basically floor layouts that black out certain areas that aren't in your line of sight. Terrorists could be lurking around any corner or just off screen. They aren't that hard to kill but they usually dish out a fair amount of damage before they are cut down in a hail of gun fire. You take what ever falls out of their dead bodies and use it to complete your mission. The game can last any where from an hour or two, to just under 20 minutes if you know where to go and what to do. It goes through most of the plot points from the movie and makes you feel like your actually controlling the game, instead of it controlling you. I know the Angry Video Game Nerd put this game on his worst games list but it is still worth at least playing once if your nostalgic and want to relive the glory days of the NES. If you hated Die Hard the movie, then you might want to stay clear of this game all together.
