Genre: Action, Film/ TV tie- in, Shooter
Thematically, Die Hard - the game of the most recent Bruce Willis-fronted action movie A Good Day To Die Hard - has a lot in common with the original movie. It's about greed, violence, and one man facing apparently insurmountable odds.
The similarities end there, though, because this new digital take on Die Hard is a poorly put together endless-runner that, while showing some potential, is too often knee-capped by strange decisions and hilariously bad ideas.
You play as John McClane's son Jack, who's younger and leaner than his old man and likes nothing better than running along a set path shooting at identikit Russian goons and collecting spinning coins. You throw the crewcut badass around with a series of swipes and taps.
It might be ugly, stupid, and often unintentionally hilarious, but Die Hard is fun enough that for whatever brief period of your life you waste on it you won't mind
