Lmao, reading the product description on Amazon.com for House Of The Dead 2 & 3 for the Wii when I noticed this:

QUOTE said:
Gory arcade graphics. THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD 2 & 3 RETURN retains the rich arcade graphics you love

Which basically means no updated graphics and we'll be shooting pixilated zombie heads (in HotD2 atleast)
Surely it can't be that had to add some polish to them and make them look better? They might as well release HotD2 via the VC

Better be a budget title

They're not even as good as the arcade graphics, its looking like a port of the Xbox version, which also included HOTD 2. So its a bigger cop out.

As along as HOTD2 is like the Dreamcast version it will be fine. I tried HOTD3 on the xbox and it was ok, but the bonus HOTD2 had terrible aiming problems with the gun. I didn't know what was wrong with it. HOTD3 aiming was fine, but HOTD2 was all over the place, like they didn't calibrate everything correctly.

The Dreamcast version of HOTD2 was sweet, but it was made by SEGA for a SEGA console.

I think it will be released for GBP29.99 over here in the U.K. Still over priced..

I still like HOTD2 over HOTD3.. The caged monster in HOTD3 was good though..

^Same here...I've never given a crap about anything with FPS unless it's under 30 and causes problems. Human eye can't detect over 30fps as is so I've never given a damn. Far as I'm concerned 60fps is just a psychological mess making you think things are smoother and your mind just filling in the gaps it can have processed for it by the eyes.

Well its priced here at £29.99, and for me thats too much for a 6 year old game, now add the first game and Typing of the Dead on there then it might be a fair deal.

Would anyone other than videophiles really notice that?

I don't like lag in games, but unless I'm specifically looking for it, I can barely notice the difference in frame rate.

When you see one after the other, you'd notice it.

Human eyes can detect over 90fps. I believe Jet pilots have clocked over 128fps in tests.
