Developer: Sega WOW Entertainment
Platforms: Arcade, Xbox, PC, Wii (2&3 Return), PS3
Release: 2003

The House of the Dead III is another light gun shooter developed by Sega WOW (formally AM1) for the Chihiro arcade hardware which has the same architectures from Microsoft’s Xbox hardware. The game departs from the first two games. Instead of using light gun pistols, players must use shotguns to do away with zombies and reload by pumping it. The branching system is different from the previous games as well. The player is given options for navigating through the game prior to the start of most stages, ultimately going through the same areas with different results dependent on the order chosen. Rescue Events replaces civilians and players must rescue each other from the grasp of the evil creatures. An extra life will be awarded to the player if they are successful of saving their partner from harm.

Arcade Story
Terrifying creepiness is afoot in House of the Dead III. Twenty years have passed since “The Curien Mansion Incident”, and the mad scientist’s inhumane experiments have continued – but the doctor is long dead,
So what tormented mind can be behind this gruesome trial? Has some twisted despot found the doctor’s research – or has the gate to Hades opened onto our world, spilling forth the seed of dark rituals?
Embark on a chiiling journey into the loathsome pit of malevolence, an industrial depot lost amid swirling desert sands. Witness the horror first hand as you go in search of a team of missing AMS agents who raided the depot two weeks prior to your assignment. A festival of gore awaits you, so grab your shotgun and head into the depths of an apocalyptic nightmare the likes of which you have never seen before.
