Anyway, I decided to give a few rail shooters a try. Now please keep in mind, there very well might be an amazing rail shooter on this system I am missing. If this is the case, please please please let me know. I've been Googling around for a list, but they all include games I don't consider arcade style rain gun games. Either these games really don't feel like arcade games, or they are mainly a different type of game with a rail shooter mode.
In my mind, a rail shooter is a game where you don't actually control the movement of the character you play as, like you are on rails. These games typically involve your character advancing through a stage while shooting at things that appears in front of the screen. Popular examples include Time Crisis or House of the Dead.
The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return
We will start off with a classic! This game compiles The House of the Dead 2 and The House of the Dead 3 onto one disc. Both games feature arcade mode, original mode, boss mode, and training. Should be around $30, which is nothing compared to the huge amount quarters I have pumped into the House of the Dead 2 in my lifetime...
The House of the Dead Overkill
Now if you were disappointed by the lack of updated graphics and features in House of the Dead Returns, you should be quite happy with this installment. Now it might just be the hours of playing House of the Dead II, but the graphics here are quite nice for the Wii. It plays just like the older titles. It is extremely violent though, but what did you expect from a zombie rail shooter?
