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.
Excerpt: An excellent 'rail shooter' with two basic player modes (the standard survival mode and time attack). 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.
Pros: House of the dead II is unlockable, great fun with mates after the pub
Cons: Linear, cumbersome shotguns, One infuriating boss
House of the dead 3 is great fun, especially if picked up cheap !

Excerpt: I had waited a long time for this game both in the arcades and the xbox version as I am a huge fan of the other games in this series. As I have owned this game on xbox since launch I think its possible to stand back and judge it ! Story House of the dead 1 had a simple storyline, HOTD2 had a shockingly rubbish one, HOTD3 represents the first attempt to put together a proper storyline, this is an improvement over previous games but not really that important !
Excerpt: House of the Dead III is a game I fund slightly disappointing as it did not really improve on the previous two games in the series and I was very glad that I had decided to rent it rather than purchase it. It is not a bad game and if you have not experienced the previous two versions then it is worth checking out but not if you have played either of these games.
Excerpt: House of the dead 3 is a light gun game for the xbox console. It's been out for a while now, and i've had it since release. I was always a fan of the hotd games, so i anticipated this one a lot. How disappointing it turned out to be. The game itself is fantastic. You are equipped with a shotgun, which has awesome power, and there are alternate routes available through the game. Graphically it's gorgeous.
Pros: Best looking gungame around . Great gameplay .
