5.0 out of 5 stars Look Out Zombies! Get Ready for Total Annihilation! March 22, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a no-brainer. If you were ever a fan of the House of the Dead in the arcade, then you have to dish the $30 to get it. If you're as bad a shot as I was in the arcade, you'll make up the money in about 10 minutes worth of play. :)

If you've never played the game but are looking for a new title to use your snazzy Wii Zapper on, then this is also the game for you. It's super responsive and accurate, and gives you lots of satisfaction based on the sound effects and gore.

For those expecting something new and fantastic for the Wii release, you may be disappointed. The graphics are the same as the tried and true versions, and the voice overs are still the very poorly-acted (but admittedly nostalgic) ones you love to hate.

Parents, fear not. You can "censor" the level of gore if you're still OK with your child playing this type of game. (It's rated M for mature, i.e. 17+). You can make the blood be green instead of red, and also minimize the amount of gore in the options menu. Accessory-wise, you don't need the Wii Zapper or other comparable shooting peripheral. It works fine with the controllers as they come out of the box, but since the arcade version had guns, it's nice to have this extra.

Here's what you get with the game: House of the Dead 2, with arcade and original modes, boss mode and training mode. You start with the basics, and as you get further and further into these modes, you unlock more and more things. House of the Dead 3 has arcade mode and extreme mode, with the same ability to unlock more and more as you go through the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars A welcome, but slightly disappointing, return March 13, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Sega's long running arcade light gun shooter series makes a welcome return with this compilation. The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return features nearly perfect ports of the original games, which in itself tells you everything you need to know right there, as both games are showing their age. The shooting calibration using the Wii remote is nearly perfect, while Extreme Mode is also included as a bonus of sorts. Sadly, that's the only real bonus that Sega included in this package, which really would have benefited from other extras or at least enhancements to the games themselves. Flaws aside though, The House of the Dead 2 & 3 are still great and fun shooters that new and old fans alike will get some enjoyment out of, but old fans of the series will be left wanting a little bit more bang for their buck with this package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect match with the perfect shot gun March 20, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a huge fan of the House of the Dead 2 arcade game from the 90s and have been waiting for a good console reprint to come out. This game plus the Wii perfect shot gun is as close as it comes to the original arcade game. I initially tried the zapper, but it didn't have the right feel. I now have an order out for another perfect shot gun, so I can play multi-player as it was intended.
Overall, the game is exactly like the old arcade. They didn't change or add anything from what I can tell, so if you looking for an upgrade to the old game, this isn't it. As such, you cant save your games and need to restart from the beginning when your credits run out. You do receive additional credits as you accumulate play time though. If your looking for a no-brainer FUN shooter, this is absolutely it.

4.0 out of 5 stars In case you're not familiar... March 28, 2008
By Adam
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
House of Dead is a lot of fun, but it's also rather dated and very brief. Each game is actually only about 30 minutes long if you can make it to the end. I like it a lot and I think it's worth the price, but if you're expecting a full game you'll be really disappointed. There's a whole lot more to Umbrella Chronicles, which also boasts better graphics and voice acting (except for the 8yo girl who voices a grown woman of course). I still easily prefer House of Dead over Umbrella Chronicles for one huge reason - your bullets have an effect on the zombies. It takes way too many shots to kill a zombie in UC, and you can barely even see that you hit them. When you shoot a zombie in the head in HoD, their head explodes and little chunks go spinning off into the air... MUCH BETTER!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great teen family game December 10, 2008
By da man
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this with Wii perfect shot gun ($7.95 - a must have accessory) and have been playing it with my two teens for 2 hours/night for a few weeks. It's a great match for the Wii and a lot of fun to play together. And people with different skill levels have fun playing together (unlike, say, Mario games). This even lets their mom join in and have a blast.

It's also just like the arcade version - complete with crappy graphics (so bad in HOD 2 that it's funny) and fairly repetative gameplay, so I can see getting a bit tired of it in a few more weeks. But, that's ok and expected given the arcade game. Still definitely worth the money and we're all looking forward to HOD: Overkill.

As a side note, it's also not a particularly good party game though since it's 2 player and the games last pretty long.

you can't save, and if you die you start over. At least in the arcade you can add more coins to keep playing.
