    Super Fun, Super Hard

    The ultimate old-school zombie shooter, House of the Dead (HotD) is one of both the coolest, and hardest shooters ever, and ported to the pc doesn't help as much as you'd think. Basically, the story is that 2 agents try ... Read Full Review

    Great classic game!

    I used to like this when I was a little kid 11-12 years old (2001-2002) and for those times I think it was one of the best games you could find. I really like how the monsters pop out of nowhere in this game and I think ... Read Full Review

    Gotta love this game.

    I don't care what you people say about House of the Dead. It was made a long time ago! Of course the graphics are going to be bad, but you don't see people hammering Mario for sloppy graphics! I've played this game and I... Read Full Review

    If You Haven't Heard of This Game Before, Chances Are You've Never Been to The Arcades

    If you haven't heard of this game before, chances are you've never been to the arcades (How sad). Anyway, The House of The Dead is a classic rail gun shooter where players get to blast mindless mutants and other hideous ... Read Full Review

    House of the Dead rocks the house, although the party is cut off short with it's limited gameplay.

    :Good Idea: · A really fun arcade game. It's just fast paced enough to be considered an exercise. · Shooting a zombie in the chest gave you a glimpse of what we could do with gore, such as damaged charact... Read Full Review

    A mouse instead of a gun, this version of the arcade classic holds true. Reload your guns, it's time to kill zombies.

    This PC adaptation of the arcade classic does justice to the game, even without the luxury of handling guns. It runs very smoothly and gameplay with the mouse is excellent. There's no worrying with movement, like most ar... Read Full Review

    BEST GAME EVER MADE!!!!!!

    I remember first seeing this game in the arcades when I was a little kid. I first read the title: "The House of the Dead". That had got to be the greatest title I've ever seen for any video game. When I first played this... Read Full Review
