Miss Arcade Shooters of the 90's? Look No Further!

If you grew up in the nineties and weren't one of those fortunate souls (a.k.a. lucky bastards) who had a Super Nintendo, a Genesis, or the coveted yet doomed Neo Geo, then you spent many a warm summer day hidden away in a cold dark arcade hopped up on sugar and food court delicacies.

But with the spread of Playstation, Xbox and Wii throughout the living rooms of the world, the arcade is quickly going the way of the dodo and Dido. Let us all tip our hats then to Nintendo's Wii, which is bringing back the arcade rail shooter in full force. Wheather it's a mini-game full of comical rabbids in Rayman or hordes of zombies in Resident Evil we're heading back to shooters as they should be.

The latest entry in this genre is House of the Dead 2 & 3 from Sega. The Pros? More zombie shooting and a classical bit of nostalgia from our pimple-ridden days in the mall. The Cons? It's a direct port. Nothing really new to speak of and certainly no boost in graphics power.

They make up for the lack of upgrades and innovation at the register, however, selling at the low low price of $30. Is it worth it? Depends on how much you like to shoot zombies and how much bad dialogue you can stomach. Me? I can stomach lots.
