Summary: Touch the dead is a rail system game; meaning you don't control the characters movement, or where he walks to, it automatically just goes there and all you have to worry about is where to shoot. So the basic idea is some guy is stuck in a city where zombies are running rampant, and your job is blow every one of them away.
Summary: This game is not like the arcade version. The bullets run out too quickly and the game play is repetitive. The scene makes you feel like you're walking around in circles. The game is BORING to play.
I should have read and not skimmed the other reviews. You should too.

Summary: I purchased the game for two reasons: zombies and a great Amazon rating. Unfortunately, I barely skimmed the reviews and ended up with a game that just is not my cup of tea. I would recommend reading those detailed reviews first, then come back here. The "rail system" can be very repetitive, boring, and challenging for, in my opinion, all the wrong reasons. The graphics, even by DS standards, are rather poor.
Excerpt: The shoot em up game of my youth had to be the arcade version of House of the Dead, produced by Sega. This game was a first person shooter and armed with a light gun you had to shoot all the zombies as they appeared (some slowly strolled up from the distance, whereas others would appear by jumping out in front of you) and leave the House of the Dead alive. The original game was a fast paced blood bath that anyone could play.
Pros: None worthy of mention
Cons: Repetitive game play, limited number of bad guys, gets boring
