The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Review
11 February 2014
Excerpt: It seems that everyone I speak to these days loves the Dreamcast. In fact, so many people seem to own one that it's hard to understand how the system failed, especially considering its steady supply of near-arcade-perfect arcade games.
Conclusion: So we have a short game, last gen graphics, and bad voice acting, but still, I enjoy the game. Sega makes a great light gun game, simple as that. For the sake of nostalgia, it's worth to pick up the game. I still can't give the game great marks being that it's simply dated.
Conclusion: With its fairly cheap price tag (only $30) and arcade perfect ports of these titles, House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return would seem to be a no-brainer (pun intended) purchase for fans of light gun shooters.
Excerpt: Created by the wonderful people at Sega ’s AMS division, House of the Dead originally hit the arcades in 1990, wowing shooter fans with its neat horror twist, relentless undead enemies and inventive bosses.
Summary: If you're a fan of light gun shooters, you surely can't have missed the House Of The Dead titles. SEGA's frantic zombie shooters invaded arcades in the late 1990s and 2000s, with the last sequel, number four, coming out in 2006.
Conclusion: AMS never said anything about zombies. Not on the application, not during the interview, not even when I was training with some joker who called himself “G,” whatever that’s supposed to mean.
Excerpt: More than a decade since the series of horrifying light gun shooters first came to coin-op, there’s hardly a soul who hasn’t plunked a few quarters into a House of the Dead machine at the local pizza parlor or movie theater.
