Virtua Cop Virtua Cop
(known as Virtua Squad
for the North American PC version) is a Light gun shooter
created by Sega
, and headed by Yu Suzuki
. Its original incarnation was an Arcade Game in 1994 and it was later ported to the Sega Saturn in 1995, and then the PC in 1997. It was later bundled with Virtua Cop 2
in Japan and Europe on the Playstation 2 as Virtua Cop: Elite Edition
(Virtua Cop Rebirth
in Japan) on August 25, 2002 and November 29, 2002 respectively. It included gallery extras and implementation of Namco
's Guncon-2 lightgun support and it is the best port of the games. In 2004, a port was developed for the Nokia N-Gage
Handheld System. This was cancelled by the quality control team before its release.
Players assume the role of one of two police officers, namely Michael Hardy and James Cools and use the light gun to shoot enemies and if a civilian was shot it the player would be penalized. The Name derived from the polygongraphical style which was used in Virtua Fighter
as well. This Graphical style was unique because most games of this time period used two dimensional graphics such as Lethal Enforcers
. This was one of the first games to have enviromental damage and it may have been the first 3-D shooter to have an expolding barrel.
