The House of the Dead is a dang classic. It was one of those “I gotta drop 40 dollars of quarters into this one” type of games as a kiddo. It has some seriously rad zombie shooting action. House of the Dead is pretty much the standard when it comes to rail first person shooters. The remake to the classic is on its way later this week and we are already impressed with what it is bringing with it.
The new take on the game digs in deep on the things we loved about the game while improving both graphics and performance. It also kicks it up a bit with couple of new modes and approaches that should make classic zombie film fans very happy.
The synopsis and features for The House of the Dead Remake goes like this:
