5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Mindless Action July 5, 2000
This is a game that reduces the first person shooter to, literally, shooting. There's no need for navigating, remembering where you are or where you need to go, no secret passages or special maneuvers: It's just aim-and-shoot time.
As a result, the hardcore gamer will probably enjoy it for a little while and then go back to a game with more subtlety or multiplayer capacity. It's perfect for the casual gamer, though: There's no learning curve whatsoever. The voice acting is of the "wonderfully bad" variety, which gives the game a certain camp value, too.
It's also good for kids, if you don't mind them being exposed to the gore, which is non-existent for the human characters and far enough over the top for your undead foes to go into the silly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Resident Evil, Sega is back! December 27, 1999
When I went to see a movie a couple months ago, I found out I was 30 minutes early. So, to burn some time, I decided to go to the arcade. When walking in, I had noticed a small group huddled around a game. When I decidied to have a swing at whatever game was being cheered for, I had the time of my life with the game I was playing. That game was "House of the Dead." Since it was recently released for the PC, there are some problems like glitches on the enemies and youreself which don't show much. Besides that, more options are available like the proper graphics setting, a boss mode where you could choose a boss you would like to play, and the color of blood the zombies spew out when being shot at(gross)! But side to the gore, It's the entertainment that counts. And while playing the game, your heart will be pounding, fingers sweating and preventing your fingers from shaking! This game is a winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars One word: Phenomenal. January 4, 2000
This game goes way beyond addictive. Let me put it this way ~ my wife was upset at first at the violent and macabre nature of the game. It didn't take long, however, for her to get as sucked into it as I was! Now to make a long story short ... she's completed the game twice already, and I still haven't! Sega, hurry up with HOTD 2 for the PC!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, pain to install April 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
I give this game 5 stars because it is a great classic game. It was however a pain to install. I tried to install it on Windows 7 64-bit just to see what happened. I got a message saying it didn't support 64-bit operating systems. I can understand that, it's an old game. I wanted to get this game to work so badly I installed a Windows XP 32-bit VM. First thing I got there was "Windows NT" not supported...well the amazon product details say it supports Windows NT...guess not. So I tell Windows XP to run the thing in compatibility mode for Windows 95. Finally works!

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombie Eviscerating Fun February 4, 2003
This is one of the best games EVER!! When I downloaded the demo version, I sat down and started playing it and, IT WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST GAMES EVER, AND THE BEGINNING OF ONE OF THE BEST SAGAS EVER!!! As I played the 2 minute demo I grew to learn the many branching pathways and which zombies and innocents were in them. Now when I buy the full version for PC, i'll learn more of the game and see the new zombie that await me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Arcade comes to PC September 30, 2001
By Matt
This is a awsome shoot-um up game. You go through levals by killing goons and thier bosses. This is real fun all you do is shoot zombies and weird creatures. This is even in multiplayer so you and a friend can wipe out these creatures together. This is a must for any shooter/horror fan.
