Description

Twenty years after the events of The House of the Dead II, Lisa Rogan and Agent G are desperately searching for Lisa's father, Thomas. Eventually they find themselves at a local corporate office, which is over-run with all kinds of deadly and evil creatures of the afterlife.

It's up to you (or a friend) to blast your way through the evil dead to rescue Lisa's father. Included are multiple gameplay paths (you choose which way to go), the new auto-reloading shotgun, and 2 player support.

Trivia

Controversy

The UK Advertising Standards Authority got complaints about an ad for House of the Dead III and publisher Atari was forced to pull it. It featured an image of a corpse with two bullet wounds in it and its hands tied above its head, along with the phrase "the only good zombie is a dead zombie".

German index

On May 31, 2005, The House of the Dead III was put on the infamous German index by the BPjM. For more information about what this means and to see a list of games sharing the same fate, take a look here: BPjS/BPjM indexed games.

Lightgun

As of release, this was the only lightgun shooter on the Xbox. Neither Sega or Microsoft designed a lightgun for the console because of this fact, so Madcats stepped in with their own lightgun for Xbox owners.
