House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return - 2 / 10

House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return
GOOD
- A rail shooter with some moments of fun
- Allows co-op
- wiimote works well once it is calibrated
- Budget price that comes with a gun

BAD
- Hardly anytime spent on modding the game: Just about an exact port of the orginals (which may be a good or bad thing, personally though a bad thing)
- Remote calibration is frustrating: I spent 15 minutes moving the sensor bar and myself around the room to try and get the calibration to detect the wiimote.
- Repetitive gameplay
- Lack of save points
- Short - Does not take long to complete the game. The only replay value I see it playing the game in extreme mode
- Unlockables - Only unlockable is Elevator minigame and extreme mode

UGLY
- Graphics and number of enemies on House Of The Dead 2: Being a port the graphics are really bad (just like in the arcade). The game also lacks a variety of enemy models.
- House of the dead 3 does pick up the graphics with improved character models but still not up to wii standard (although the lighting has been well done)
- The voices - The voices are so bad they are funny (makes me wonder whether the voices where down bad on purpose)

Thanks for the review. I like short reviews that just quickly assess a game. Your my favourite reviewer on this site by the way.
you know there's a 200 word minimum on reviews?

Well do you want me to extend the review and add the extra 88 words? But I pretty much said everything I wanted to say about the game.
Doesn't look good either, not getting it.

Nice short review.

there are 211 words. its fine
about the calibration problem. under options you can set the calibration without having to move the sensor bar. you just to options and its right there.
