HOTD 2 and 3 is an excellent rental for anyone wanting to relive the good ol' days of on rails zombie shooting. The game is a direct port of the Sega titles from a few years ago, so the dialogue in the game sucks, the graphics aren't great, and the music, well, it's just kinda there. No where near as satisfying an experience as RE: Umbrella Chronicles, HOTD still stands on its own merits. The way you reload your gun is the game is cool, as you don't have to shake your wiimote, but just point it away from the screen. The boss battles are pretty cool, too, as you have to employ just a little strategy. It would have been nice to see the whole trilogy released on this disc though.

this game has a weird and interesting story line as you go through a zombie infested world and fight through monsters and different types of zombie attacks and strong and weak like catergories of different zombies it is a game that is mostly found in a arcade but now it seems they have made this a great wii arcade type of game but the one thing that u need to do is PLAY IT!

I had recently received House of the Dead 2 3 return and was very excited to play. I wasted many quarters in the arcades playing this game and was excited to see it come to a home console. When I first started this game I was not disappointed because it is just like the arcade game following the same story lines. The graphics are not great but thats the way the orginal looked. There are many different modes in these games such as training modes which are mini games to hone your skills, boss levels which plays just the bosses and arcade mode which plays just like the arcade version. If you are a fan of the arcade verison or just great shooter games then I would recommend purchasing this game. I would not recommend purchasing this game for a kid because of the blood and violence. I hope there are many more great shooting games like this to come for the wii.
