===Intro/Outside the Library===
+
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
You start as James (First Player) with or without Gary (Second Player), who are their way to attend to and meet G (Meetings). They are shortly interrupted by Zeal, who tells them that G is taken care of and now it is their turn to die. He orders Steve to kill them.
 
   
You will start off with two David's (or three for both players) coming to bite or attack you. After killing them, James and Gary proceed to the library where G is at. There are four David's roaming around in the background.
+
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.
   
===Inside the Library===
+
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.

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.

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.
 
 
 
 
 
 
After entering the Library, James and Gary find one Andrew and one David in there (For both players, there's one David and two Andrew's. Later on, one David and two Andrew's came out. G is finally found but in an severely injured state. He tells them that he tried and proceeds to hand out the "CONFIDENTAL" file. Johnny and David (Or two Johnny's in both players) then burst through the glass door. Killing them shortly, G says that Amy and Harry are waiting for them.

James and Gary later encounter Johnny again but this time killing the second civilian (Chronologically, the first civilian was already found dead at the Library).
 
Before dying, he said, "I don't wanna die.". This horrify's James and Gary what it feels like to have a civilian be killed by a zombie. Walking straight, a lady appears and is chased by Andrew.

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

Synopsis Edit

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.
