    Great game to just have fun with you can blow away mindless zombies and with the great graphics see every piece of them blown off. Although The House of the Dead III may be somewhat of a short game it makes up with including The House of the Dead II. The graphics on The House of the Dead II look like Dreamcast graphics which was a small fault. If both graphics were Xbox this game would Great game to just have fun with you can blow away mindless zombies and with the great graphics see every piece of them blown off.

    It's a great game, these so-called experts don't know what a fun game is all about.

    Intense game that keeps you wired long after you finish. HotD2 is also a great addition. Great game.

    If you like rail shooters, this one is a definite pick-up. Mow down zombies as fast as you can with your shotgun, and also a complete version of The House of The Dead 2 is included (which I'm sure must have hurt The House of The Dead 2's sales after 2002). Really fun game I've played for many years. Excellent.

  1. New to this series is the ability to mow down multiple enemies at once, enhanced graphics, a variety of endings and new creatures.

    Everything here blows up real well, and it's oddly beautiful to witness the rich pageant of the undead splattered in a magnificent hail of hot video lead. [Winter 2002, p.91]

    A fun ride that ends far too early. [May 2004, p.94]
