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.
fun game for what it is. Once you get used to it, it becomes really easy. The only part that was really difficult for me was the last boss. Worth a rent and hope fully soon we will get to pay 50 cents at an arcade to play this game

my uncle and me love any thing zombie so when we saw a new hardcore zombie game for the ds we rented it immedetly and we were noe dissapointed the co-op is really fun but there is no download play so both people need the game :( the controls are so easy and fun. there are 4 weapons which is kinda sad but they definitly get the job done. It is pretty easy to get through the first chapter then things start really getting hard the enimies are kinda repetive and there are lots of em with blood and gore woot! not for a casual gamer :)
