It's obviously best played with the motion control as sudo light guns, but they do drift off point quite a lot, but are quickly centred again. It's quite awkward to control with the sticks. Light gun games were never intended to be played with sticks or pads anyway!
Levels are very accurate to the original arcade layouts too. I played the original loads back on the old SEGA Saturn and enemy placements soon came back to me, as did the numerous routes you can take.
I also like the packaging on this release too. It looks great and it's the kind of game that deserves to be a physical release too.
Sadly though, everything is great apart from the game play. Its hard to aim and becomes very frustrating. At times I've had to point the controller down to the right to get the cross hairs in the centre of the screen and then you can only make a very small jester to move the target. I watch a review in you tube (which I should have done first) which says its much easier with a pro controller. But who wants to use a controller for an arcade gun game!!
May just go on ebay and buy a second hand wii and house of the dead on that. Shame, but the controlls massively let it down.
This arcade game was so popular, that it got ported releases on the Nintendo Wii with The House of the Dead Overkill and House of the Dead 2 & 3, and with the Wii Controls it felt more like the arcade then another other system release.
Now Nintendo are back, with The House of the Dead Remake, once again bringing the Game back to the system that was designed for more arcade games (wii at the time). The switch was more powerful then the wii console, but didnt have the motion controls that the wii did.
The Joy-cons gave you a arcade feel for the game, but if you played the old wii titles like overkill then you'd see that the wii still outshines when it came to the controls. This remake was done really well, and the updated graphics do stand out and making it more intense with the cutscenes, compared to the arcade graphics. The gameplay is still the same, as your character automatically moves whilst you aim and shoot, as a typical arcade shooter would.
Many people have issue with this game, but I dont see that. I still see a great classic brought back to life. and if its your first time with this title, then I welcome you to a great classic and hope you have memories with it just as much as I did.
