House of the Dead 3 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: All right, I’ll admit it. I spent almost fifty dollars on HotD was in the arcades. The game is just TOO much fun. It really gives the sensation of an adrenaline rush as you play this game. The fast-paced combat and somewhat interesting story manage to keep your attention for the time until this game is over. Overall, an extremely exciting and fun (and sometimes homework push-offing) title from Sega rejuvenates the series with the fresh twists it needed.

House Of the Dead 3

29 January 2007
  • 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. Playing through a second time makes more bad guys, and once completed you unlock house of the dead 2.

  • 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. HOTD3 also features a deeper storyline but the focus remains on blasting zombies. It’s more elaborate than the older games but does it have the depth?

  • Excerpt: Since most of us are too scared to go dig up bodies in the cemetery and perform bizarre experiments on them, Sega created the House of the Dead series. The premise is simple, a scientist has screwed with nature and now zombies are all over the place and you’re the only one who can stop them. The original game was a huge hit and so was it’s sequel, so Sega decided that it was time for a third one, this to grace the Xbox.

The Armchair Empire

  • 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. Anyway, that’s one of the extras on the disc… HotD3 is the best-looking House of the Dead game to date. It’s cartoony, gory, and downright gorgeous.

The House of the Dead III Review

23 October 2002
  • Excerpt: Probably one of the most significant changes in video games over the past 10 years has been the shift in focus from arcades to home console systems. While the arcade-style light-gun game enjoyed a slight revival in the mid-'90s, the genre has slowly but surely run out of steam as its primary venue, the arcade, has vanished.

House of the Dead III – Review

19 October 2000
  • 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. Romero's film was the first to remove the zombie from the wilds of Haiti and other third world populations and place the undead right in the heart of middle America (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in...

  • 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.
