May 9, 2022House of the Dead: Remake, as a simple remaster, is an excellent example of what a remaster is supposed to be. It gives the original game a visual facelift while going to the extreme to not tamper with the familiar gameplay and aesthetic that long time fans have come to know and love. But anyone would be hard-pressed to consider this as a remake, rather than a remaster. Where the game begins to flounder is in regards to the very limited pool of new content. The lack of online multiplayer support, combined with the limited amount of new content to keep fans occupied beyond the first hour, makes it hard to justify the $24.99 retail price. If the game had launched at $9.99 or $14.99 instead, these limited additions might have been an easier pill to swallow. As it stands, while the small changes and additions might prove to be a love letter to existing fans, House of the Dead: Remake doesn’t do much to appeal to potential new fans as well.

May 18, 2022This is unnaceptable in 2022, you can beat this game in under 30 minutes, no replay value, and when it comes to graphics, closer to a remasterThis is unnaceptable in 2022, you can beat this game in under 30 minutes, no replay value, and when it comes to graphics, closer to a remaster than a remake...plus, missing the original music.
Add to that terrible performance on PC.… Full Review »
