THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD: Remake

The House of the Dead Remake sees the return of the original Sega classic rail-shooter with some brand new visuals. The game looks better than ever, but it is still a very short-lived experience.

Gameplay: Shooting zombies is fun, but the game sticks to the handful of levels from the original game, which means it can be completed in less than an hour.

Graphics: The new visuals look great and the game doesn’t shy away from blood and dismemberment either.
