Violent, Silly, Corny Arcade Fun
27 January 2014
Summary: The plot on this thing is ridiculous, but I find myself running back again and again to play. Pretty good graphics, although the 3D functionality is a little bit off (not very well mapped as far as depth, and can strain the eyes after a little while) Good calibration standards, but I notice after a while I need to recalibrate, and in a few (very rare) circumstances, my recticle went completely rogue and off the map. Always during a boss battle too!
Summary: Awesome game. While PlayStations' Move accessories aren't very accurate, they're good enough to play this game. It's a lot of fun. I was reminded of my younger days in which I would spend all of my quarters playing this in the arcade.

Summary: great game lots of fun. Brings you back to the days of the arcade room. its fun in 3D with dual guns. The only bad part is the cursing my young son love killing zombies but can't mute all the cursing
Loved it on the Wii, love it even more on the PS3!

Summary: This game defines FUN! Yes, it's a screwball, over-the-top rip-off of Grindhouse -- but who doesn't want to play a screwball, over-the-top rip-off of Grindhouse? If you answered, "I don't!" this game isn't for you. For everyone else? This game is pure perfection. So why the 4 stars? Because the developers had 2 years to work on this after the Wii version and they only added 2 fun -- but short (shorter than usual) -- levels.
A pulpy, over-the-top arcade shooter that is a blast to play!
Happy Tronukkah!, Amazon

Summary: This is an HD port of the underappreciated Wii title, and now includes a couple extra stages, new weapons and game modes. The game, like all the House of the Dead games, is pure joy to play, especially with 2 players using Move controllers with gun attachments. Each stage is set up as an episode of a 1970's style grindhouse film, complete with the over-the-top language, violence and even "technical difficulties"!
Summary: First up..... I only played this with a friend, in 3D on a 55" LCD, and with precision shot gun controls. So the experience may vary for others. For me, it was pure fun! The 3D effect is good. with the gun control it is almost like playing in the arcades.... with better graphics and sound! I loved it. For pure value, get the gun control and 3D TV along with it. Not sure if there is enough lastability in the game itself. It is just mindless firing!
