5.0 out of 5 stars Why not The House of the Dead Trilogy? 20 Aug. 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Thankfully, developers are beginning to realise that the Wii is perfect for light gun games. The House of the Dead series is one of the greatest in the genre, and the Wii conversion retains everything that made these games so special in the arcades.
Graphically, nothing has been updated, so Part 3 obviously looks better than Part 2. A few modes have been bundled in, such as Boss mode and a few tutorials, unlockable extras etc. But Arcade mode really is where its at.

There are branching paths throughout each stage, which usually depend on whether a civilian is rescued or killed. This provides amazing replayability. On a similar note, those worried that unlimited credits would ruin the game need not worry. There is a set number of credits when played for the first time, and every failed attempt to complete either game increases the number of credits available, or the players maximum health. This helps prevent sticking points, especially boss battles or dying at the same point again and again. Admittedly, the feature has been lifted from the PlayStation versions of Time Crisis, but a great addition regardless. The co-op mode is also great fun and just like the arcade, player 2 can jump into the action at any time during play.

The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return is incredibly nostalgic for those who played it, and still a fantastic light gun game for those who havent.
But would it have been too much to include the original House of the Dead as well? The House of the Dead Trilogy would have sounded much better too! But a small gripe with an otherwise brilliant package.

4.0 out of 5 stars The old ones still have it. 26 April 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, I know the graphics on this are dated (particularly HOTD2), and I know neither game is exactly cutting edge. The only arcade games i've ever played in the arcade properly and really enjoyed are drivers (Ridge Racer et al)and shooters like Time Crisis and House of the Dead. The Playstation port of Time Crisis was immaculate but I can't get my old light gun to work on a modern telly.

The design of the Wii is perfect for this sort of game and the conversions are perfect. The game is perfectly playable with just the standard Wii remote hand held, and the accuracy is spot on. Anyone who's played a badly calibrated arcade machine of House of the Dead and wasted several quid before realising that the light gun won't hit half of the screen will particularly appreciate this.

While this sort of game will never engage your brain, a good shoot em up is just so much fun, particularly if you play in two player mode.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stress relieving splatter fest 3 May 2011
By Indiro
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Maybe it's not normal for a 40 year old woman to get so much satisfaction after a stressful day from obliterating virtual zombies, but hey, normal is overrated. I bought this specifically for the two player aspect and it's great fun. Okay, you just wander around, trigger happy, cheerfully blowing holes in various zombies, and some of the bosses are infuriatingly hard to kill - but if you just want to massacre the undead, what more do you need?

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best railgun-shooter but a damn good one. 12 April 2009
By Solyant
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I gave this game 3 fun-stars, but if you play it with two players give it 4 ;-)

I can remember the good old days when i played House of the Dead for the first time in SEGA World. It had great grafics an a lot of straight forward action. Very nice indeed.
Well, time passed by and the game got some sequels and one prequel and even was released on some consoles like the Saturn and Xbox.
Now its time for a Wii-version.

First thing to mention is that you will get not only part 2 of House of the Dead, you'll get part 3 too.
House of the Dead return is a compilation and i had a great time with both games. I guess i have to admit that part 2 is not very "up to date" and even the voice-action is ... just lets say not so good. Anyway its fun. If you got a friend who likes railgun-shooter too, both of you will have some real funny hours.
Now on to part 3.
Thats some hell of a game! Good grafics, sounds, and voice-action.
Zombies look realy creepy and lots of stuff to blow up. Nice.
Both games are very hard, but thats okay because they are not very long and it wouldnt be very funny if you beat the game after 3 hours.
Anyway, £13.65 is a very good price for this both games.

Just one question remains: Where is part 1?
Okay its old, but it would have made the compilation feel more complete.

And don't forget to check out House of the Dead Overkill because THIS GAME ROCKS and its funny as hell too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorefest 17 Mar. 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
From Germany.
Great game for rail-shooter fans, definitely not for kids. Graphics of Part 2 look a bit crappy today, but this game is nearly 10 years old, so this is to be expected. Part 3 looks like comic-style game should look today, so you may consider part 2 as a nice gift. Difficulty level is fair, the game unlocks more continues and a lower difficulty level as you keep playing (and failing). But with a good memory and strategy you will conquer the zombie hordes. The hardest part are the level bosses anyway. The three guys i have encountered so far are pretty challenging, so this will game will keep you entertained for a while. Another fun factor are the cut scenes. The game tells a little story with some drama and fun dialogues, not high art, but what would you expect in a zombie-centered game. Also consider buying a lightgun- or shotgun-controller, holding the naked remote-controller gun-style for some time is quite painful.
