(Sega AM1's universe)
It's been a while, hasn't it? My friends from the AMS... it's me, Goldman.
Darkness (闇, Yami) is the third chapter of The House of the Dead 2.
AMS agents James Taylor, Gary Stewart, and Amy Crystal travel across the water on a boat piloted by partner Harry Harris. Harry explains that Caleb Goldman, the head of a financial group, masterminded the 1998 Curien Mansion incident and used his knowledge of the Genome Theory for his own purposes.
Reaching the city canals, they kill more creatures and rescue civilians. Later, Amy receives a phone call from Goldman, who tells them to meet him at the coliseum, on the north side of the city. Harry, who believes this to be a trap, says that they should proceed. Upon reaching an underground passage, Harry orders James and Gary to disembark and proceed this way while he and Amy take the boat toward the coliseum.
James and Gary soon find a panicked man being chased out by creatures who, regardless of whether he lives or dies, tells them his friends are still further inside. Heeding his warning, the agents continue forward to see another fleeing man dragged off by a massive reptilian head. They discover a massive hydra-like creature known as Tower clutching the body of the man and a few others in their maws, before spitting them out to attack the agents.
After the four bronze heads are shot down, the blue snake escapes and makes its way into a nearby room, where James and Gary evade its bites and swipes of its tail. They eventually kill the beast, and, not long after, receive a distressed phone call from Amy, asking them for their aid moments before she is cut off when another monster attacks her and Harry.
