Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

You play a special agent sent on an urgent mission to the top-secret experimental facility of the DBR corporation. There you encounter freaks, ghouls, a plethora of zombies, monsters, bloodsucking bats and every sort of horrific creature imaginable. All of which you need to shoot and destroy.

You can control your pistol with a variety of key configurations which are customisable but we found the best option is to use the mouse which is nearly as good as the arcade and Dreamcast versions which use a gun. The two-player option is also a bonus although one of you is at a disadvantage with having to use the keyboard.

House of the Dead is a very immersive, atmospheric and pretty scary game, it's just like being in an interactive horror film. For fans of the arcade version we strongly recommend this game--just don't play it alone in the house at night. --Kate Johns

Manufacturer's Description

December 18, 1998 - strange goings-on at the top secret experimental facilities of DBR Corporation: research staff are missing and the worst is feared as sinister rumours surround the former lab Director, Dr. Curien. Special agents Thomas Rogan and G have been sent on an urgent mission to investigate the mysterious disappearances and determine the nature of Curien's research. But nothing could prepare them for what lies waiting at The House of the Dead...

THis game is indeed a lot of fun but is only really playable with the mouse and/or gamepad. The game really comes into its own when you have your friends round. Although its major pitfall is that it is incredably short. It is possible to complete the arcade and PC mode on the hardest difficultly level first time through in about 10-20 minutes. Although while it lasts it is good fun, it is far too short... Still... For this price you cant really go wrong!

House of the Dead, the aforementioned shoot-em-up is in fact a rather uninteresting effort, converted from the light-gun arcade game of the same name. The premise behind the game is that some mad doctor by the name of Curien has been conducting Reanimator style zombie experiments at a top secret, and possibly government funded, lab. However, he has decided to unleash his creations on the world, starting with his fellow researchers. One of living occupants of the lab, a girl by the name of Sophie, makes a distressed phone call, alerting her cop/private detective/psycho-with-a-gun-friend who drives over to the lab to find Curien's creations running all over the shop. This is where you come in, and playing as the bloke with the gun, you have to make your way through the labs, set within an old mansion, and kick decaying arse - remembering to scrape your shoes afterwards. Sounds like a cue for a bit of Quake style action - but unfortunately, House of the Dead isn't a patch on Quake, or any other 3D shooter.

Well this game is very interesting shooting zombies,frogs,flying gargoyles and loads more and whats more if you feel good enought to save that poor woman hanging over the balcony by shooting the zombie she gives you a first aid kit but if you kill her yourself you lose a life and if you let the undead get her you dont get the first aid kit!Play this game to see what you think. The plot is a lovely young lady who goes by the name of Sophie rings you up you get there she is unconcious on the floor then a winged monster comes and kidnapps her even if you shoot it it dont die later before the boss Sophie is there the boss comes in and hits her up against the wall you kill the monster then sadly she......Well PLAY IT TO FIND OUT NOW!!!!!
