The House of the Dead 2

An arcade style first person shooter where you have to blast your way through lots and lots of zombies
The House of the Dead 2 is a first person shooter that sets you back in the 90s video arcades where fun was guaranteed. The best and worst part about it is that it actually stays in the 90s in a lot of ways.

Action packet from the first minute

The game throws you in pistol first and facing various demons and zombies after just a few seconds of gameplay and keeps them coming throughout the entire duration of each round. Seriously, they just keep popping out all the time and from everywhere.

The House of the Dead 2 continues the story from the first Curien Mansion occurrences and places you in Venice where you have to fight off the forces of evil and rescue civilians. As you make your way through the game and your investigation, you soon come to the conclusion that the zombie spawns are created by Caleb Goldman and from that point on, the plot begins to thicken.

A true arcade experience

In terms of graphics, the game remains in 1999s quality and it is really bad compared to today’s standards. The cut scenes and acting are also rather bad but back then this mattered way less than it does now.

Overall the game looks bad but it keeps you hooked from start to finish and if you play it with a friend, it gets really fun. There’s nothing like running an old-school arcade game blasting bullets left and right at the heads of mindless zombies set to annihilate the human race.

Keeping the true arcade feeling, you only get to control the crosshair of the of your character’s gun and reloading when you need it, which happens a lot.

Way past its time but still enjoyable

With the graphics issue out of the way, they are bad but still good if you’re the nostalgic type, he House of the Dead 2 is still a great game to play on a lazy Sunday.
