(IDG) -- Forget the strategic zombie eradication of Resident Evil. House of the Dead 2 plays lượt thích Resident Evil on steroids, with its twitchy trigger action and pop-up scare tactics. But if repetitive sầu gun games aren"t your bag, you"ll find yourself staying out of this house. The ungrateful dead You play as a thành viên of the AMS, a special forces unit that is called to investigate the Curien mansion. Apparently Dr. Curien, who previously tried to unleash a plot to destroy mankind, now has a new disciple named Goldman, who has his own plans for the human race. Goldman wants to lớn see his new biologically altered mutants walk the Earth. Sounds noble và dangerous, but it"s just a thinly veiled excuse khổng lồ blow the crap out of the undead with a light gun (sold separately -- Sega doesn"t want any part of THAT controversy), và the excuse works well.House of the Undead 2 is simply a visceral roller coaster of chills, thrills, và kills. Although there is some replayability with the multi-branching story line, this is not a game you"ll be playing six weeks from now. It"s just a shoot "em up with some cool gross-outs & lots of chunky gore. There are some power-ups strewn throughout the levels khổng lồ extend the game play, and Sega added some new Dreamcast-only options, like a story mode that allows you khổng lồ store certain items away for use later, và a mode where you can combine items. But neither one is useful for a game with only six levels that you can beat in about thirty minutes with a rapid -fire light gun.Moans & leekers, how I adore you The detail of the graphics is so money that you"ll often take a hit just khổng lồ see the beauty (or the horror) in front of you. You can also blow away chunks of an enemy without killing it, spraying green blood and gore all over the place, which is kind of dễ thương in a David Cronenberg sort of way. The sound is a mixed bag of horror in itself.

You can hear screams, moans, và pleas for help clearly, but you"ll also have sầu to suffer through some of the silliest dialogue (và the most effeminate sounding male AMS agent around) in a video clip game. The sound does have sầu more bright spots than weak ones. Control is reduced lớn two words -- light gun. The game is useless with the controller, with cursors that veer wildly for no reasons, & a hard to lớn alặng interface especially in the two-player mode. Wihtout the light gun you might as well go after these zombies with a fly swatter. House of the Dead 2 The game is way too short, the graphics are cool but limited (you see enemies repeated throughout the game), and the game is useless sold as is -- sans light gun. Shelling out more bucks for the gun puts HOD2 in the category of too pricey, và definitely not worth other games the Dreamcast has to offer. Rent this game & the gun, và clear out the house in a weekend. Graphics: 4.5 Although there could have sầu been a bigger variety of enemies, the cool bosses and total gross-out factor of the chunky gore is satisfying. Sound: 4.0 The sound occasionally peaks through valleys of mediocrity, but the game doesn"t offer anything super-duper-Dreamcast special. "House of the Dead 2" is a tedious experience without a light gun. The StarFire LightBlaster from Interact retails for $29.99. Control: 3.5 Without the gun the game is about as much fun as killing zombies with paper clips & rubber bands. Fun Factor: 3.0 Too short, too easy, và if you have sầu khổng lồ shell out extra for the gun, too expensive sầu.
