Dead Containment Direct Download
Taking On-Rails Shooters Off Rails Dead Containment is an on-rails shooter inspired by classic arcade light gun games. Players fend off the undead as they race through a city under siege, blasting away the horrors that roam the streets. Play solo or with a friend over online play, collect hidden pickups to boost your score, rise up the online leaderboards and prove to your friends why you would survive a zombie outbreak. – It would be nice if the flashlight was either a toggle or automatically turned on slightly more liberally. There are some segments where I found the game slightly too dark. The first stage could use a boss. I also think the Stage 2 boss could use one more attack variation. The player absolutely needs a timed hit invulnerability especially after continuing. The stage 4 boss’s attacks can deal multiple hits of damage in rapid succession for a single mistake. It would be cool if there was some fanfare when a boss is defeated. It’s a little jarring the way you retain the ability to shoot after it dies, and you just kind of unceremoniously move to the stage’s exit. Switching between weapons should always reload them. Nothing worse than switching back to your Pistol, only to find it empty.
Balanced gameplay. Every hit is your fault, enemies attack one at a time, the camera focuses on threats properly, and projectiles are highlighted to indicate that you can shoot them. The extra lives and ammo are fairly placed in the levels. Branching routes. They operate like The House of the Dead or Virtua Cop 2, and add replay value. Solid enemy variety. In addition to the regular undead mooks, you have animals as well as enemies that can block bullets. This forces you to change up your strategies. Online leaderboards. It’s fun to compete with others, and this encourages you to practice the levels and understand the game mechanics. Fun scoring system. The game operates on a timed combo system where consecutive headshots increase the combo. Thus, the action is brisk because once a combo starts, it can be just as easily dropped if you hold back your gunfire. End-of-stage ranking is a good challenge. To earn bonus lives, you must get enough kills and headshots, maintain a high accuracy, and not get hit much. This harkens back to The House of the Dead 4 and Scarlet Dawn, and like any good arcade game, rewards high-skilled players.
Dead Containment Direct Play:
Lack of a clear story. The game begins with you being dropped off via helicopter into a building, with some quick explanations and no cutscenes to explain what’s going on. No voice acting for most of the dialogue. This further obscures whatever story the game’s trying to tell. It’s not always clear which parts of the scenery you can shoot. For example, you can shoot the small coffee cups in one scene, but can’t shoot the large trash cans in another. Special weapon switching can be awkward. Switching weapons doesn’t reload them, and when a special weapon is empty, you have to manually switch to a different weapon. I feel it’d be smoother if the game automatically switched you back to the pistol with a fully-reloaded clip. Overall, I think Dead Containment is a better effort than The House of the Dead: Remake. The refined gameplay and official light gun support show that Grump Dog Games were up to the task of making a light gun title in the modern age.
