    I am going to give this game a 10.

    The reason I am giving this game a 10 is because, quite frankly... its the BEST typing game on the market. There are no other reasons for the high score. If there was even ONE game better than this, I would probably gi... Read Full Review

    Zombies to the left of me! Zombies to the right! What will save me? My keyboard!

    I will come right out and say it, I am a terrible typist. I never learned to correctly use a keyboard and I now use a unique six finger and a thumb technique that I have never seen another human being match. So, when I... Read Full Review

    ridiculous *BOOM* full of crap *boom* explosion *BOOM* fluffy *BOOM*

    When my friend got this game, I swear he never could shut up about it. We actually had a pact where I won't talk about how much I love Dethklok if he would just not talk about TotD. Anyhow, when I tried it out, I LOVED I... Read Full Review

    You type to save the world from the undead. Yes!

    Horrible voice acting, badly acted campy horror, birds and zombies with claws that attck you unless you TYPE quickly and accurately enough. Some might say this is the best game ever. I don't, simply because I can type pe... Read Full Review

    Despite the graphics, this is a must play!

    Let's get the bad stuff out of the way: The graphics are very blocky, very ugly, very bland, etc. The character models are blocky, ugly, bland, etc. The voice acting is laughably horrific. (Takes the edge off of a r... Read Full Review

    A B-movie typing tutor!

    I own an old copy of Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing but it's never gotten me to sit down and 'learn' to type for long. Sure, it's well made and has refreshing mini-games, but the motivation was just never there. I learned t... Read Full Review

    Kill zombies using your typing skills or just for fun. The faster you type, the faster they die.

    The first time I played Typing of the Dead was in the arcades. It was really fun holding a gun and just killing every zombie that you see. When I saw this game in the store, I bought it because I really loved the arcade ... Read Full Review
