The House of the Dead is a bit more challenging than other shooters. Most games let you kill an enemy if you hit a spot anywhere on its body. This is not the case in The House of the Dead. Most enemies are felled by one shot. Some, like the zombies, require a head shot to be taken out. A shot to the body might slow them down, but it won't stop them for good. The challenge in The House of the Dead is so intense that you'll be happy to keep popping money in the slots.
