  • Excerpt: "***DISCLAIMER*** I have moved over this review from my GameFAQs account where I go by the name ThePreacher. You may have also seen 1 or 2 of my reviews on imdb.com but I just thought I'd give a heads up! Enjoy the review! ***End Disclaimer*** Gameplay: In my opinion this really is a solid shooter and set the way for the future titles in the series, you get that feeling of realism as different body parts fly off depending where you shoot, ...
  • Pros: great fun and gameplay, cheap to buy, timeless
  • Cons: may be dated now, only fun with lightguns, rare to come by

  • Excerpt: "...world to have heard of House of the Dead without ever having played it. So when I got my DC I decided now was the time to buy this game that everyone raved about. With it I bought a light gun. I was not to be disappointed - at first! The graphics were quite lovely, the aiming on the gun was precise and the gory splatter as the bullets blew chunks off the bad guys was great. I hadn't had so much fun in as long as I could remember. If you've ...
  • Pros: True port of the arcade classic .   Some nice touches .
  • Cons: Too short, too easy, too monotonous .   Overpriced .

  • Excerpt: "ZOMBIES! That's what Mr.Goldman's new evil plan is, to make zombies and wreak havoc! That's where you come in! A guy with a big gun, ready to shoot the zombie folk! Here to save the day! And really, that's all that you do do, just shoot whatever pops out, and not shoot the innocent civilians. It's a very fun game,very enjoyable and very simple. You start off, gun in hand (lightgun or controller, depending on your choice) and when you get automatically ...

Finally, it came out on the Dreamcast and has turned out to be one of the games i have played the most in all of the years that i have been a video game player, it is that good. The graphics are superb and the role plays work well, i especially enjoyed the different routes that ...

ZOMBIE KILLIN' ACTION

lloydpick, Ciao
28 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "...light gun. The gameplay of House of the Tead 2 is awesome, but only if you are playing it with the light gun. That is the only way that you can truly experience how fun this game can be. Playing it with the this controller is too awkward because it takes too long for the target to move across the screen. This doesn't matter in the early levels of the game, but becomes very important in the later stages where the action gets very fast. The only ...
  • Pros: Very fasy
  • Cons: u need the light gun !

  • Excerpt: "I was bound to like this game - I was wasting FAR too much money in the arcade version. But that doesn’t mean go out and buy the game - you should rent it... The Plot continues from the first game. Only this time, the scenario is set in a different place. Basically, a man named Goldman, concerned about the evolution of the human race (???), starts conducting genetic experiments on humans, in a bid to try and improve it. The result of these ...
  • Pros: Great Gun Feature, Excellent Graphics, Fun to play

  • Excerpt: "...Then Virtua Cop2 and House of the Dead. When Sega upgraded their arcade AND home hardware, I could wait for the next gun game. And this is it. The wonderful and amazing House of the Dead 2. At first I was blown away by the graphics, I couldnt believe my eyes. Its like Resident Evil in first person mode, only even better cuz your the one carrying the gun. I loved playing it, I thought it was class. But like all gun games, they grow on you, and this ...

  • Excerpt: "House of the Dead 2 is the first gun game for the system. Killing zombies with guns couldn’t be more excited. You need to go and buy a gun from a third party manufacturer. It’s worth it because the game is tiresome to play with the controller. I suggest purchasing the Interact StarFire LightBlaster. Your job, as a special agent, is to kill zombies, save people, and get to the bottom of this plague of living dead. The Zombies do punch, kick, bite and ...
  • Pros: Bloody mayhem, Good looking zombies
