    If you have a light-gun and a compatible TV, BUY THIS GAME. But even if you don't, there's still a lot of fun to be had.

    Pros: -Graphics are nice, if a bit gory in HOTD3; in HOTD2, they have a retro feel that we all can appreciate -House of the Dead 2 is included -The entirety of the game works well with the light gun -Co-op is definit... Read Full Review

    this game is a joke

    Okay, I've played plenty of light gun games in my time, but this has to be one the worst. I decided to play this with the controller and it was not responsive at all. I don't know how many times I died because I was unab... Read Full Review
