2 Stars out of 4

Namco's Point Blank 2 will definitely please fans of the original. The first Point Blank came packaged with the Namco GunCon, which also accompanied the game Time Crisis. Naturally, the second Point Blank game is also GunCon-compatible. Though it's assumed you already have the GunCon, you can probably find a version of Point Blank 2 with the GunCon included, but you'll have to check at serious gaming stores. That does not include K-Mart.

Point Blank 2 is basically the same as the original. The game doesn't feel any different, with the exception of the Theme Park mode and the Party Mode for two to eight players. The Theme Park mode offers a "cosmic drive," "abyss tours," "bullet train," and "haunted house." The haunted house part may remind you of the indoor sections of Jurassic Park for the Super NES. Basically you turn, pick a door, turn, pick a door, until you find an enemy. Then you play a mini-game as usual.

The Party Mode is probably the game's strongest point, especially Team Battle. Tournament and Turf War are also inside the Party Mode. No matter how you slice it, though, this is really a point-and-shoot game and not much more. If you like mindless fun (and that's nothing to be ashamed of), then you'll enjoy Point Blank 2.
