View Full Version : Looking for PlayStation 2 games that work with original Guncon 1

I found this on wikipedia:
Many Guncon 2 (PS2) games are compatible with the original Guncon. The only limitation is if the game utilized the extra buttons on the Guncon 2.

* Crisis Zone
* Dino Stalker
* Guncom 2
* Gunfighter II: Revenge of Jesse James
* Endgame
* Ninja Assault
* Resident Evil: Dead Aim
* Resident Evil: Survivor 2 Code: Veronica (EU/JP)
* Starsky & Hutch
* Time Crisis II
* Time Crisis 3
* Vampire Night
* Virtua Cop: Elite Edition (EU/JP)
* Gunvari Collection + Time Crisis (Jap)

But this doesn't tell you what games are compatible with the original guncon, it just says many games are. So does anyone know which games are and which aren't? The only one I found an answer for so far is Ninja Assault, on Gamefly it said the game was NOT compatible with the original guncon.

Time Crises 2 will work with both
Time Crises 3 works with both
Resident Evil: Dead Aim id guncon 2 only
Dino Stalker Guncon 2 only
Endgame works with both
Ninja Assault is guncon 2 only
Vampire Night will work with both

I think starsky and hutch only uses the guncon 2 but i'm not sure (cant be arsed to test it right now)

the rest of the games i dotn own and or they arent available in my region

edit: looked up some info on crises zone and the back of the box only has the guncon 2 logo so probably only supports that and that should finish off all the US release ps2 lightgun games

Also anybody can feel free to correct me if i'm wrong but at this point i dont think i am. (unless your a grammar nazi then i'm pretty messed up =D )

EDIT PART II: fixed the list thanks Mr. Chris

Time Crisis 3 worked flawlessly with my old Guncons.

I'm pretty positive that Crisis Zone worked too, but I don't now for sure.
Virtua Cop doesn't.

Thanks for the help guys. I've been wanting to get some new guncon games for a while, but I didn't want to get something that was not compatible. I already have the best lightgun games in my opinion which are the Point Blank series, now I can get a few more. Thanks again.

I've found a pretty comprehensible G-Con 45 compatibility list:

compatible PSX games:

* Die Hard Trilogy 2
* Elemental Gearbolt
* Extreme Ghostbusters: Ultimate Invasion
* Judge Dredd
* Maximum Force
* Mighty Hits Special
* Moorhuhn 2
* Moorhuhn 3
* Moorhuhn X
* Ghoul Panic
* Gunfighter
* Point Blank
* Point Blank 2
* Point Blank 3
* Rescue Shot
* Resident Evil: Survivor
* Time Crisis
* Time Crisis: Project Titan

incompatible PSX games:

* Area 51
* Crypt Killer
* Die Hard Trilogy
* Lethal Enforcers
* Project: Horned Owl

compatible PS2 games:

* Crisis Zone
* Dino Stalker
* End Game
* GunCom 2
* Gunfighter II
* Ninja Assault
* Resident Evil Survivor 2 - Code: Veronica
* Resident Evil: Dead Aim
* Starsky & Hutch
* Time Crisis 2
* Time Crisis 3
* Vampire Night

incompatible PS2 games:

* Police 24/7
* Virtua Cop Elite Edition


So the Resident Evil games are compatible, though you have to use an additional pad to make up for the absence of a d-pad.
As said Virtua Cop EE needs a Guncon 2 and the incompatible PS1 games and Police 24/7 need Konami's Hyperblaster.
