  • Summary: Run through "House of the Dead 2," but instead of firing a light-gun you type a word that is displayed onscreen in front of the creature attacking you. The faster and more accurately you type the words, the faster you'll kill the zombies and the higher you're score will be. [Empire Interactive]

    Incredibly addictive. [Jan 2002, p.110]

    It's simple and immensely addictive. If not for a few graphical and aural problems it'd be a near perfect game to waste hours upon hours on.
  3. This is the first time that a survival/horror game has made me laugh out loud, and still manages to retain all of the scariness that was present in the shooting version of the game. In some cases it's scarier because you're typing for your life, which is hardly an easy thing to do.
  4. An unusual game that might not have amazing graphics or sound, but its gameplay is unique and extremely fun.
  5. It has an interesting plot with lots of wandering around shooting off the limbs of the walking dead. However, you shouldn’t expect too much out of the dialogue or the background music.

    Genuinely fun – for the first 10 minutes or so, before it gets repetive. [Holiday 2001, p.68]
  7. The Typing of the Dead really shows how anything can be improved by adding "…of the Dead" to it. Just think of "Windows XP of the Dead," or "Civilization III of the Dead."
