4.0 out of 5 stars Finally -' a leave your brain at the door and everyone elses on the pavement' type game., 28 Mar. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return (Wii) (Video Game)
This is the first game that has re-enforced my decison to purchase this console over the other two machines. The wii design lends itself perfectly to the arcade emulation of the 10 minute 'no brainer blast em up' and this is realised no where better than with HotD 2/3. O.K so the graphics on 2 are dated, but the mechanics are superb with instant reaction to the wii remote in reloading and in its pin point accuracy via a calibration option. Whereas in Umbrella Chronicles I felt like I was handling a pea shooter, here, the wii remote feels like a 'weapon' with appropriate sound effects whether in the pistol of 2 or the shotgun in 3. My only gripe is the lack of credits - in the arcade it was always another £ in the machine, but here when you're dead you're dead. The options are cool as well - ranging from the level of gore to whether you prefer your zombie blood to be green or red. I thought Ghost Squad was the definitive shooter for nintendo's latest but feel this game adds longevity to the mix and offers that 'just one more go' feel that left me skint in the arcades. Maybe its a generational thing but I like my games to be a mix of mayhem, fun and mindless shell pumping action. If you liked Virtual Cop, Time Crisis and the ilk, take a look at this. Hats of the Sega for reminding us that no one does arcade action better.

the title of the review is the best review this game could possibly get.

In 2 just choose the Original Mode and you can pick up all sorts of goodies which you can opt to use like +10 credits, machine guns or extra rounds. Pity you can't pick up the extra goodies in 3 though. This game was the whole reason that we got the wii and it is perfect for it (especially if you get a pair of venom guns)
