The house of the dead is a game that once you play it in the arcades you want to have it to yourself
The House of the dead is a old skool shoot-em-up for up to 2 players, you play a man who is trying to seek out the mysteries behind the house. Throughout the game loads of zombies will try to attack you and its your job to kill them and progress further. The game holds 4 bossess which each of them has a weak point(the last one does but doesnt say and im not saying you have to find out ;])
Once you have completed the game you may get onto the pc game's highscore and save your name, impress your mates etc
To sum it all up
House of the dead is a good shoot-em'-up lacks in the graphics a bit but i would consider buying if you like old skool shoot-em-ups

Most people would at some point have gone into an arcade and had a go at one of the many games inside that give you a real gun to hold and a screen in which various styles of bad-guy appear and you have to blow them away before they do the same to you. The House of the dead was one of the very first of these machines and this PC title allows you to simulate the arcade experience on your home computer. Just imagine using a mouse to aim and not as many young kids running around screaming.
During the game you move along a per-determined path shooting at monsters that require varying levels of reaction time to defeat and eventually come across a series of mini-bosses, most of which involve you having to figure out which part of them is their weak spot and blasting at it until one of you dies.
Overall its not a game that will win any awards, however it is great when you have nothing to do and want to waste an hour or so of your day without having to put too much effort in.
