STAFF REVIEW of House of the Dead 3 (Xbox)

House of the Dead 3 Box art How much you like House of the Dead III really depends on whether you have the light gun or not. I enjoyed it with the light gun, but not so much with the controler as the aiming isn't as fast or accurate. But, all things aside, it's about time a good light gun game came to the Xbox, hope we get more uses for the gun in the near future. It's a short game, but what is there is lots of fun. I did find out the hard way that the gun does not work with most HDTV's and projection TVs, so that was slightly disappointing.

HOD3 is basically a rail shooter, with the occassional choice of path. The plot is pretty basic, but it's not the type of game you play for a deep plot. Just aim and shoot the baddies!

I was surprised at the visuals as they were better than I thought they would be for this type of game. Everything looked crisp and clean. The bad guys looked creepy and there was just enough diversity in them.

The sound effects were ok. Nothing more than what you'd expect from this type of game. Voice acting was cheesy, but I think it was supposed to be that way.

Make the game longer. It's nothing to clear it in a couple days. I did like the unlockables such as the compete HOD 2 game.

Overall: 8.0 / 10
Gameplay: 8.0 / 10
Visuals: 9.0 / 10
Sound: 7.0 / 10
