I.  Introduction
----------------

For those of you who don't know,  Point Blank 2 is a Extremely Addictive Light 
Gun
Shooter from Namco.  There are over 80 stages,  Where you must complete a set 
objective,  such as shooting out a fast moving target with one bullet or 
shooting as many cardboard cutout bad guys as you can within a set amount of 
time.  The stages are divided up in between many categories,  such as Rapid Fire 
and Single Shot.   Every stage has a two player variation,  so you can easily 
challenge your friend to a stage and compete to see who gets a better score.  
There are also a number of different VS.  type modes including Turf War and 
Tournament (for up to 8 players).  There are also many single player modes to 
choose from.  You can play in endurance mode,  and try and get as far as you can 
up a tower without losing all your lives,  theme park mode,  where you must 
complete various minigames in order to get clues about a kidnapped princess,  
and the original arcade mode,  which plays exactly like the arcade version of 
the game.
