A Fun Light Gun Game
The House of the Dead if one of the few great light gun game ever released. In my opinion, this game is the best in the series, due to the fact that I have spent countless hours playing over and over again, and yes I agree that some of the later entries are much better, but this is just a matter of opinion. To be honest, I never really knew or even cared about the story of the game. The only thing I was interested in was trying to get better in the game, trying to obtain a perfect score. But if you want to know more about the story, you'd probably want to check it out on the internet. The gameplay is simple: ready your gun, mow down some monsters, every now and then save an innocent person from some monsters and finally fight the stage boss. The boss fights are well done, due to the fact that you're given a small hint about their weakpoints. The shooting part is also a lot of fun, but it requires some fast reflexes and if you're new to the game, being hit is inevitable. The graphics are quite good for its time, however I found the voice acting to be quite cheesy. But overall, The House of the Dead is a great light gun game. It was fun back then and it is still fun today.
