    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 th...

    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 pl...

    Super Fun, Super Hard

    Rated on June 07, 2008 by liukang666

    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 i...

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

    Rated on October 23, 2006 by Dinghy_Dog

    :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, suc...

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

    Rated on September 17, 2005 by Guuthulhu

    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 mo...
