'''A Prelude''' is the first chapter of ''[[The House of the Dead 2]]''.
   
It doesn't look like G is there until you defeat 5 or 6 zombies and the players move further into the library. G is always found wounded, crouching behind a desk. As G is handing over his "file", (his guide to all the bosses) an axe zombie bursts through the door and attacks them.[[File:Johnnys.png|thumb|Johnnys in Chapter 1]]

During a rainy day on February 26th, 2000, [[AMS]] agents [[James Taylor]] and [[Gary Stewart]] drive into the heart of [[City|an unnamed city]]. They intend to meet their partner [[G]] in a nearby library. Suddenly, they are waylaid by a flying imp-like creature named [[Judgment|Zeal]], who threatens them by saying "''I've already taken care of G! This is only the beginning. You're next!''" He then flies away, but not before commanding the [[Creatures|creatures]] below to "''Get them!''". T
   
After defeating the "axe zombie", (johnny) you go outside the library when you find you find yet another "johnny" zombie killing a civillian. (note that the civillian '''cannot''' be saved) You can also see a david zombie in the background, it can be killed using one bullet only. After killing the civillian, The Johnny zombie attacks you and after killing him, (Johnny) the civilian he kills makes one final quote stating that he doesn't want to die. Though he dies a second later...
+
The duo kill the creatures before making their way into the library, where an injured G is hiding himself away. He tells them that fellow AMS agents [[Harry Harris]] and [[Amy Crystal]] are coming to back them up. With a final note, he hands the pair [[G's file|his journal]] containing illustrations and the designated [[Weak point|weak points]] of various creatures. James bids him well before the pair depart.
   
This part makes you start having to save civillians from zombies. The first one is a woman being chased by a "Steve" zombie. (a david with a smaller head, a blue jacket, more health and the fact that he "karate chops" you) After killing the Steve, you will turn to the left to see a man being attacked by another Steve and two Davids. On saving him, he will show you the way out of the garden of the library, on letting him be killed by the zombies, They will turn around and attack you. The woman is seen crying behind James and Gary. James or Gary states that they couldn't help the man even though they clearly could, but chose not to.[[File:Unlucky_Guy.png|thumb|man being attacked]]
+
After killing more creatures and saving many [[Civilians|civilians]], Zeal reveals himself once again, antagonizing the agents for not heeding his warning. He flies aside as a giant, headless suit of armor named [[Judgment|Kuarl]] appears by slashing at two cars in his way with a large axe.
   
In the next scene, a Steve and two Davids burst through the glass double - doors to the left of them. After killing the Davids and Steve, you go through the double doors and find a fountain full of frogs who (of course) attack you. (Note that the frogs take ONE HIT to die; just like the murrers later in the chapter) After killing the frogs, you will turn around and find a Johnny and David and (of course) you (maybe) kill them.[[File:Chapter_1_Davids.png|thumb|double doors scene
+
With the help of G's file, the agents discover that Zeal and Kuarl are in fact a deadly duo telekinetically linked together called [[Judgment]]. While Zeal attempts to use himself as a distraction as Kuarl menacingly approaches the agents, they shoot Zeal enough times to seriously injure Kuarl, who falls over and leaves the imp to defend on his own. Despite being a fast adversary, the agents defeat Zeal, who calls out "Sir...[[Goldman|Gold]]..." before falling to a crumpled heap.

This is the scene when James will see G's bloodstains on the wall. Through a grating come the murrers who are small mutants worm - type zombies. Alike the frogs from the fountain, the murrers take one hit to go down. This is also the scene where the players meet "Max"; the strongest zombie in the level. (There was a mistake you see as the Max appears before the murrers)
+
After the fight, James and Gary encounter Amy and Harry; the latter remarks that the citywide incident is similar to the [[The House of the Dead (1996 video game)|1998 Curien case]]. After a brief recourse, James and Gary split from the two, left to their own devices to continue forward.
   
In this scene, you will look up and see that a Johnny is throwing axes at you and you will also meet Ebitan, who has made a comeback from the first game... (1996) After killing the three zombies, (there are 2 Ebitans) a small boy opens a door while running away from 2-3 Johnnys and after killing the Johnnys you will come across a man - hole where two Randy's appear...
+
==Gallery==
 
Randy is a small crawler zombie with a lot of armour and a claw. (Alike the monkey zombies from THOTD1) Randy tends to climb on walls and often he will just leap at you. They can take a few hits, like the Davids, he can take a few hits anywhere but his head to kill him. (If you hit his head, his mask will fall of and he will disappear into a puddle of blood)
 
 
This scene features the final savable civilian and a hidden Golden Frog in one of the two barrels you can see from the end of the last scene. (Note that the barrels take two hits instead of one) This scene features possibly the most zombies that aren't murrers or frogs where the zombies usually decide to ambush you from the bridges above... when helping the civilian, you must do two things; destroy a Steve's barrel and kill a David to save her. This is the first civilian to give you a life up if you save her so you better be a good shot...
 
 
The final scene of each level in the series (apart from Bio Plant/Lab in THOTD3) is of course the boss scene where, in this case, you will fight Kuarl and Zeal who make up The Judgement; a giant axe wielding zombie with no head and an intelligent zombie who can talk, mocks you throughout the level and bears a slight resemblance to The Hangedman from THOTD1. (you can read more about Zeal and Kuarl in their wiki page)
 
 
This chapter has a maximum amount of civilians who can be saved, in this case; 5. If you do not save 5 civilians, you will not get an end - of -level life (this applies for both of the players, as in they will both get a life if all the civilians are saved)

A Prelude is the first chapter of The House of the Dead 2.

Synopsis

During a rainy day on February 26th, 2000, AMS agents James Taylor and Gary Stewart drive into the heart of an unnamed city. They intend to meet their partner G in a nearby library. Suddenly, they are waylaid by a flying imp-like creature named Zeal, who threatens them by saying "I've already taken care of G! This is only the beginning. You're next!" He then flies away, but not before commanding the creatures below to "Get them!". T

The duo kill the creatures before making their way into the library, where an injured G is hiding himself away. He tells them that fellow AMS agents Harry Harris and Amy Crystal are coming to back them up. With a final note, he hands the pair his journal containing illustrations and the designated weak points of various creatures. James bids him well before the pair depart.

After killing more creatures and saving many civilians, Zeal reveals himself once again, antagonizing the agents for not heeding his warning. He flies aside as a giant, headless suit of armor named Kuarl appears by slashing at two cars in his way with a large axe.

With the help of G's file, the agents discover that Zeal and Kuarl are in fact a deadly duo telekinetically linked together called Judgment. While Zeal attempts to use himself as a distraction as Kuarl menacingly approaches the agents, they shoot Zeal enough times to seriously injure Kuarl, who falls over and leaves the imp to defend on his own. Despite being a fast adversary, the agents defeat Zeal, who calls out "Sir...Gold..." before falling to a crumpled heap.

After the fight, James and Gary encounter Amy and Harry; the latter remarks that the citywide incident is similar to the 1998 Curien case. After a brief recourse, James and Gary split from the two, left to their own devices to continue forward.
