[Review Revisited] House of the Dead 4
I used to love playing House of the Dead 4 back in the day at arcades, so I was very happy when I got a chance to review a port for the game on PS3. As is to be expected, this version of the game supports the Move controller to make it as close as possible to the arcade release, and trophies will keep players busy for a while before they can get all of them.
Here is an excerpt from the review:
House of the Dead 4 has finally made its way from the Arcade and into the Playstation Networkâ€¦ which was to be expected after House of the Dead 3 was made available in the service. What has been changed on this long, long journey? Not much really. The game is still fun to play, and it now has the benefit of being made available as a digital download, thus increasing the possibility that many can finally play this tight Arcade on-rails shooter. The HD treatment is not as easy to spot as with the other HD remakes/ports/collections because House of the Dead 4 was actually a great looking game, but the steady frame rate and extra shine here and there is appreciated.

House of the Dead 4 is a very fun on-rails shooter that gives us more of what we love: zombies. This is excellent material for a port since the original release used a widescreen HD display, making a port to an HD console a no-brainer.
