Rated 7 out of 10 by Electronaut72 Because Zombie Blasting Never Gets Old
House Of The Dead 2 and 3 were released on the Dreamcast and Xbox long ago, but these arcade classics never seem to get old. The premise is simple: Blast zombies in a first-person perspective as the screen guides you along the level. Save hostages, shoot power-ups, and try to survive. There IS a story hidden somewhere in here, but due to the laughable voice acting you'll probably never care what it is.
Since these games came out from 1998-2002, don't expect killer graphics or complex gameplay. In HOTD 2 you use a pistol, and in HOTD 3 you use a shotgun (keep shooting and reload, that's all there is to it). There are a few extras to unlock, but for the most part these are strictly bare-bones ports.
Each of these titles can be beaten in 45 minutes or less, but they have stood the test of time as arcade classics--a testament that gimmicky light gun games can indeed be a blast, especially with more than one player. If you're looking for another mature-rated game on the Wii, don't pass this one up.

I first saw this game on this site before it came out, I thought "Hmm, these are my two favorite arcade games and 2nd and 3rd are my favorites in the house of the dead franchise." So I buy it and have a real fun time playing it. If you're a person who is a house of the dead fan like me, you would notice that there is some new training games and videos, and you can play extreme mode in the third after you beat the arcade in the third. It's a steal at like ** bucks. Of course, the graphics aren't the greatest in the 2nd, but the game play really makes up for that. Plus they have good story lines. If you get this game and you're at an arcade or something like that, you can just walk past the games because you get to play them for free later. Bottom line, mowing down flesh eating zombies is really fun when you don't have to spend any quarters. Enjoy this if you buy, have fun playing.

Rated 10 out of 10 by snuggyboy light gun games-wii
I remember playing house of the dead 2 on Dreamcast and part 3 on Xbox the story for both games is excellent. Both games are very challenging easy to play but hard to master graphics are good control options you can use the remote nunchuk or both the Wii zapper if you are looking for an authentic light gun action. Sound on these games is superb. Part twos dialog is still cheesy as ever. The interface ok responsiveness for this game does the job it was suppose too. I extremely recommend this game to any house of the dead fan or someone looking to have a blast with a Wii game on a weekend this will be a good way to spend some quality time during the week when there is nothing good to do. Give this game a whirl its one of my favorite games in my collections for my Wii!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Kolton A Worthy Additon to Your Wii Collection
Although the house of the dead 2 and 3 may not be new games, they are brought to the wii console in a way never experienced! The gameplay is the same in both games as in the arcade with new features such as setting the difficulty and other options. The House of the dead 2 has all of the options as previous ports (a.k.a. House of the dead 2 [Dreamcast]) with not much else added. Still due to the wii motion sensor it makes a great experience for a while since it is very short. Overall there's not much improved but this is one of the few House of the Dead games released for a console so it makes a worthy addition to your collection.

wow i go to the movies and everytime i go i go early and soon as i buy the ticket i go and play house of dead in the arcade now i can save up my quarters and buy this game but the bad thing is i dont got a wii zapper so im gonna get one of them and kick the crud out of some zombies the man has spoken the truth and if i could have have this game a 1-10 review id give it a 9 just because i have not played it yet but if its any thing like the other ones it will be a 10 and i also agree with that guy that said they keep redoing 2-3 make a 1st one already thanks
Rated 9 out of 10 by McGameBang317 2nd best game on the Wii
YES!! House of the Dead 2 & 3 are two of the most enjoyable and replayable games ever made. These games have so much replay value and fun factor, it is a must buy. And best of all, this game contains the most hysterically horrendous voice acting in history. It makes Resident Evil look oscar worthy.
Rated 7 out of 10 by webguy8 A Zombie Rail-Shooter You Will Never Forget
i remember the first time i`ve ever played a HOTD game. it was this one back in 2008. then i bought the game this year. when i got it, alot of memories came back to me. even though it might have really, really, really bad voice acting, its the most annoying but best zombie game of all time. i also have overkill on the wii and 3 and 4 on the ps3. plese get this game!
Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer House of the Dead
House of the Dead is awesome. I don't have any of them and i have never played the third. Luck for me my cousin still has a dreamcast so i can play it there whenever i visit. I don't know about everyone else but this game looks great. O if you want a gun for the game look up the perfect shot it is better and cheaper than the wii zapper.
