Conclusion: I have to say that House of the Dead 3 is one of the most addicting games that i have ever played. However, if you do not buy the Mad Blast gun with it, that is made by MadCatz, there is no point in buying this game. The reason for this is because the game is set at a very fast pace making it already hard enough to shoot the dead men with the analog stick, on the first level. As you progress through the levels, it becomes near impossible to play without the gun.
Summary: I have rated this game because i played it years ago and liked it, however i have just bought a copy to relive my experiences as i still have the xbox and guns but unfortunately the guns dont seem to work with my new LCD computer monitor/digital tv :-(
The arcade breaks through into modern console glory, and doesn't disappoint!

Summary: I always enjoyed the arcade game, and eventually found myself buying a dreamcast console in order to play House Of The Dead 2- and now the greatest arcade game ever has arrived at the welcome gates of Xbox, how does it stack up? Well, it is a lot of fun, without any doubt. With additional options, like the blood colour, you can adjust certain elements of the game, which make it even better.

The scope of this game is broadened massively by the fact that the far superior game 'House of the dead II' is unlocked upon completion of the third installment. This is a real plus as this second incarnation of the game possesses multiple player modes and is a far more enjoyable experience than the third. Basically this is an almost entirely linear game (only broken up by several 'route choices' whithin the game). ...
Pros: House of the dead II is unlockable, great fun with mates after the pub
Cons: Linear, cumbersome shotguns, One infuriating boss
