In fact, so many people seem to own one that it's hard to understand how the system failed, especially considering its steady supply of near-arcade-perfect arcade games. House of the Dead 2 was phenomenal at the time of release and goes down as one of the system's highlights. The lightgun game hasn't has the best of times since then though, with the Wii now seen as the system that could bring the arcade favourite back into our homes.
House of the Dead 2 & 3 - The Return features the classic Dreamcast and Arcade game House of the Dead 2 and the not quite as classic Xbox and Arcade game House of the Dead 3. Let's get one thing straight: House of the Dead 3 isn't nearly as great as the second game. Even though HoTD3 features far more technically impressive visuals it just doesn't feel as good as 2. There's just something about the challenge 2 offers and the stylised angular visuals that give it the edge."
