The House of the Dead 2 and 3 Return is a thirty dollar package for what is assuredly now a cheaper XBOX game. SEGA did try to sweeten the deal with extreme mode and having part 2 playable from the start, but just know that you're not really getting much new here. However, both these games are a total blast and a great throwback to a bygone era of gaming where arcades ruled the land.
The games are quick, fast, and offer instant gratification. This actually makes The House of the Dead 2 and 3 Return a companion piece to Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles rather then a competitor. If you own a Nyko Perfect Shot, then this is a good buy, and a better rental for some quick and fun arcade action.
