Excerpt: When I first saw this game in the arcade with the huge pump action shotgun I fell in love. Unfortunately as can be excepted, this can''t really be emulated at home. Dont get me wrong i love the game and have loved all the house of the dead 3 games, but somethings lost with the 3rd convert.
Summary: The long awaited third installment in Sega’s popular zombie shooting series,
The House of The Dead 3 has arrived on the Xbox just in time for Halloween.
Aside from improved graphics, the biggest change this time is the inclusion of
simultaneous two player action.
Conclusion: They shoot zombies – lots and lots of zombies – sometimes in slow motion, sometimes at full speed. And things explode. Lots of explosions. Boom! Boom! Basically, it looks to confirm yet again that movies based on videogames, are hit and miss, miss, miss at the best of times.
Excerpt: > For those of you in the dark, the HOTD series is light gun rampage against grotesque, bio-deformed undead creatures to save humanity. For many gamers, this series is unmatched in gameplay, gore and fun. Wow Entertainment intends to keep the crown with this sequel...
Summary: It’s been a bumpy road for Sega since they dropped their Dreamcast and opted to publish games on all three major platforms. With the exception of and a few well-timed sports titles, Sega’s franchise titles haven’t faired too well.
Excerpt: The evolution of the zombie is an interesting one. Originally used in jungle movies and relegated to being the man-servants of voodoo witch doctors, the walking dead got a new lease on life with the release of George Romero's seminal zombie film Night Of The Living Dead in 1968.
Conclusion: If you love arcade then this game is right up your street. With blood spilling all over the place and graphics to gawp at, you can spend many an hour using your trigger finger so expect some aches with the constant use.
Conclusion: Sure, it won't be for everyone, but fans of shooters-on-rails and the previous House of the Dead titles will revel in its cornball cut-scenes and über-gory, fast-paced action. Kudos to Sega for putting the "splatter" back in splatterhouse.
