Awfully Awful

If you like a game where you do the same exact thing for hours on end and aren't required to think, then this is for you!

Really, all you do through this entire game is tap, tap, tap, drag, tap, tap, tap.

The End.

This is probably the worst game I've played in years. It's simply Eidos trying to rip off of the House of the Dead series. In case you were wondering, House of the Dead, and Touch the Dead are completely unrelated, other than the name sharing a parallel structure. Ripoff. I would give it a zero if I could.

Really Bad

Good idea, very poorly executed

The concept of using the touch screen in a House of the Dead style game had much potential, but Touch the Dead fell far from delivering.

There are very little surprises in the game and all the scenery is a repeated constantly so there is little aesthetic value of the game. You can almost always expect where and when more zombies are going to appear, but that does little good since enough ammo per round isn't given to get the zombies before they get you regardless of how fast you go since reloading takes a significant amount of time.

This makes the game both frustrating and not entertaining. It was a good concept but nothing about the execution was unique, entertaining or well done.

Touch of the dead; good or ugly.

the game itself is a complete offspring of house of the dead.
very slow reloads and not great looking graphics. I never got far in the game but it wasn't that fun. The controls were simple. Your stylus is the only thing you depend on throughout the game. Like shooting zombies you tap them. And reloading you use the stylus to slide more bullets into your gun. Its easy to die and I dunno. Play it yourself and decide if its Good or Ugly.
