The House of The Dead 2 & 3 Return. Nintendo Wii ** The House of The Dead 2 & 3 Return ** The House of The Dead games series have been popular arcade shooting games for many years and have been released on various different consoles. As a result of their popularity The House of The Dead 2 & 3 Return was released on the Nintendo Wii. The game contains both The House of The Dead 2 and The House of The Dead 3 games. I have to admit I only purchased this game because of the simple fact that is was really cheap and I didn't have a shooting game on the Wii so I wanted to give it a go and I figured for the low price of just £4.99 I ...

Nintendo seems to have realised the wiimote and gun attachments are perfect for on-the-rail shooters so it was great to see 2 of the major games in that genre make it onto the system. The graphics are angular and old-school and the music is cheesey to the point you can't help but bop along to it as you virtually run through labs, cities, office blocks etc. The great aspect of these games is you no longer have to keep putting a quid in to carry on playing, you just press reset and start again. As you keep dying you gain more lives so you will inevitable complete it, which is good as most of the time at the arcade you would never see the later ... Read the complete review

In the same vein as Ghost Squad, this is another port to the Wii of an arcade light gun shooter. Both House of the dead (HOTD) 2 & 3 are included, so you're getting 2 games for the price of one. Both play very similar but there is a marked improvement in graphics in HOTD 3. This series was always notorious for its AWFUL voice acting, so bad it's nearly good, thankfully this hasn't changed, the game wouldn't have been the same without it! You'll be shooting zombies, monsters, flying winged bat things, bugs, slugs and other mutated beings. The game is pretty gory (which is good) and the enemies show visible damage with body parts ...

I've always enjoyed playing House of Dead on arcades so I was delighted when it came to wii. The game includes house of dead 2 and house of dead 3. Personally I perfered playing 3. Both games are very similar so I'll review them together, basically all you do is blast lots of Zombies. The is some story but I try are by pass it as its pretty poor and a bit irrating to be honest and perhaps is one of the downside of the game. The actual game play is great so don't let this put you off. This is great Zombie shoot em up that can be played with the addition of a gun or not. Personally I didn't think it mattered either way. I used the gun designed for the latest ... Read the complete review
