The House of the Dead 2
Windows - 2001
Description of The House of the Dead 2
The House of the Dead 2 is a near-flawless PC conversion of the hit arcade game of the same name.
The game is a rail shooter like the first game, i.e. you are led by the game down a path similar to Rebel Assault, shooting at zombies and other monstrosities that get in your way. Although the English version that is being distributed by Empire Interactive unfortunately doesn't ship with the PC gun like its Japan counterpart, HOTD2 still manages to be a fun and addictive FPS that everyone should enjoy.
Similar to its predecessor, HOTD2 is not a shoot everything in sight game. You have to be careful not to hit any innocent civilian, and rescuing them from the clutches of the monsters often rewards you with power-ups or, better yet, new paths to follow. This makes the game somewhat replayable as you can do something different (e.g. saving someone's life as opposed to watching him die in the last game) to open up new branches.
As well as the original arcade modes, there is plenty of extra effects. There are 5 game modes including Arcade and Boss, 12 different kinds of zombies including the chainsaw wielding Max and the disgusting Ebitan. End-level bosses are appropriately difficult to kill, although some of them are far too easy to dispose of once you find their weak spots.
With an excellent co-operative multi-play option (across LAN) and 6 chapters of mayhem, HOTD2 is a much more attractive, varied, and longer game than the original. Be warned, though: near-superhuman reflexes and tenacity are prerequisites to finishing one of the best rail shooters ever made. There are even plot twists to keep things interesting, as well as multiple endings.

I followed the steps to get it to work, and it did, but then the next day it's now saying 'Insert CD'. What do I need to do now?

Yo Guys... i can play it and all but: I have 2 Monitor Setup and one of em is only 60hz and is set as my 'second' screen. The game always starts on the second monitor instead of my 'main'.
Any way to fix this? I can't even run it in window mode?

I got the game to run, atleast for me :
- Download the game file
- Make a folder (ex. HOTD2) and extract the game ISO file to the folder
- download MagicISO. Run it. Click Tools - Convert to ISO - Select the .cue file and click convert
- right click the .ISO file and open with Windows Explorer
- Open the E: drive ( or what drives the .ISO you mounted in) and double click AUTORUN.exe
- Click install and wait
- Find your game in the folder destination
- Click the .exe

Did anyone manage to get the game to run after the installation? Every time I click on the Hod2.exe file nothing seems to happen. I've tried running on compatibility mode but again nothing happens.
Even the NOCD crack doesn't seem to work. I extracted the files to the same directory I installed the game but an error message appears whenever I click on the crack .exe file, saying it couldn't find the Hod2 file.

1 hour to download and 2 hours to extract and install the game. The thing that made me surprised was the gun controller. It didn't need Guncon or anything like that

Ok so it's 8/26/2020 and this still works. For those who have trouble, it requires some advance computer knowledge. So I'm here to help.
1. Takes 21 to 30 minutes to download
2. Find downloads, find installed rar. (You need Winrar archiver)
3. Create a folder ex, "House of the Dead 2 not broken version"
4. Drag and drop rar folder in
5. EXTRACT ALL
6. Wait, and see programs
7. Click folder, find House of the Dead 2. ccr
8. create a disc drive (Strongly prefer last 5 letters of alphabet, ex z x y v u t
9. Go to my computer or ThisPC
10. Find your drive or find the game, you will see icon and game name
11. double click, install, wait 5 to 10 min
12. Close program, re open the program again
13. Click start. PLEASE GIVE THE DEVELOPER 5 STARS! This version has everything unlocked! LIke a premium deluxe version.
PLEASE GIVE THE DEVELOPER 5 STARS! I'm "dead" (pun) serious. Developer did a PERFECT JOB sharing. Very generous too. How many quarters or card swipes we could've spent? Over 50 dollars, literally! I'm a Dave and Busters veteran.

I also used to have a corrupt message error until i used Ultraiso , maybe this makes a difference.
