The lights are on
Several Game Informer editors are big fans of John McClane, but we're still disappointed that we haven't seen a genuinely great Die Hard game. Given the right developer, McClane's trip to Nakatomi Plaza could make for a tense and action-packed gaming experience. Instead, we have Die Hard Vendetta. Developed by Bits Studios (who also made games based on Constantine, Last Action Hero, and Itchy & Scratchy), it's a 2002 Gamecube title that did little to please fans of the film franchise.
Watch below to see Tim Turi, Andrew Reiner, Intern Jack Frontier, and myself play this disappointing (and Bruce Willis-less) shooter.

You guys should do a replay on Echo Night for PS1!
I think there may be an error in the video. It shows the Replay Roulette Title Sequence at the start of the episode and I believe that is usually just the Replay logo, Roulette is later in the segment. Just wanted to let the Video Editor know.
Those were pretty bad.
Okay, I'm guessing there's about 20 comments below me pointing out that the title card was for Replay Roulette, not the regular Replay opening. Also, always nice to have the interns featured as guests.
I hardly say this but this game would make a hilarious and short super replay. I cracked up a lot during this ep, nice find!
I just watched Die Hard for the first time yesterday! Coincidence...?
the die hard game looked terrible, but ravemaster looks like something i would make my friends play at parties just to see their suffering.
Haha, funny commentary despite sitting through two crappy games.
And anything anime really sucks. I'm with you on that, Dan. The big eyes, the cheesiness, lots of spiky hair, the stupid comic relief creatures... Ugh...
Don't forget Die Hard for the PS1. Those were alright.
Thank you for the last 2 seconds, Jason.
"Is that Mitt Romney?"
BLAST HIM NAO
Great episode of Replay! I remember playing both of those games, and they were as terrible as you would expect.
