Both are great and worth owning at that price! (Just play MadWorld with the music off.)

Both are price-matches of Newegg (which has free shipping), but House of the Dead is now even more temping with Amazon Prime.

HotD is a blast! It's also not something to play when kids are within earshot. Short, easy, great looking Wii title. And pretty funny too!

I totally want Hotd. But wish it was $10. I probably will pick it up anyway.

HOTDOK was a major disappointment compared to any of the arcade HOTDs. The soundtrack was idiotic, the swearing was pointless, the plot was worthless and it's glitchy. Zombies kept getting stuck in doorways and the game froze on me during the first boss battle. The warden peeing outside the prison pretty much sums up the whole game. I just want Sega to release HOTD4 for the home at last.

If you can get the game cheap, then by all means do so; it sure beats the $49.99 they WERE charging for it once upon a time.

perfect. two games on my shopping list and they add up to $26 just enough for free shipping.

Did anyone else notice lag while playing HotD Overkill? I only played for about 20 minutes, but at many points the game would stutter horribly. I never had this problem with the other house of the dead games for Wii

I have HotD:Overkill and had HotD Returns 2+3. I say had, because I traded in 2+3 recently because I never played it. It was fun for a short while. Overkill, on the other hand, I'll never trade in, it's a keeper. The game is great. I think it's much better than 2+3 and well worth the $13.

Wasn't going to bite for $12.99, but I just remembered I have a $5 Amazon GC; and with Prime, that makes it $7.99 shipped. Sold.

Poorly coded game. Some of the high speed weapons will cause artifacts to pop up. Yeah and it has some lag but it didn't bother me. You might want to check youtube and see if your lag is greater than normal.

I wonder if I have a bad game disc. I think mine is worse than I've read about (or seen). It affects shooting and reloading -- it's a very noticeable stutter and happened very frequently.

If you use a shotgun that is maxed out all the way, you are going to notice lag every time you shoot a zombie. If you use dual shotguns and shoot simultaneously its even more noticeable. You just sort of get used to it, but at the same time not really. It's still one of my favorite wii games. I would never get rid of it.

these are two very overlooked games for the wii, both are excellent titles. i just wish mad world would get re-made\ported to a system so i dont have to stand there and wave my hands around like im on fire.

Funny I feel the exact opposite for HOTD Return 2+3 and Overkill. I find that the Japanese HoTD are more fun. Maybe because I have them on the Dreamcast and the original Xbox so they are more familiar. I don't know. Overkill is just too dark for my taste I guess.

I bought these 2 games when they were the same prices now during the holiday. I haven't touched Madworld yet, bot HOTDO is total badass. Worth every penny.

I'm so on HotD:Overkill. Already own Madworld, but seeing as how amazon.com has Ninja Gaiden Sigma for 18 dollars, that pushed me over the edge so I could get the free shipping. =P

Wow, I'm actually surprised that there is actually people getting these. I was ready to come into this thread defending the hell out of both of those games. Then again, I'm sure everyone who would say "but it's on the wii!!!" "it's not cheap enough!!!" and the crowd favorite "bawww!!!!" have already said it in the countless other HOTD and Madworld threads.

Might have to bite. Just ordered a Wii today because my wife wanted a Wii and Wii Fit Plus. With Prime, this is sweet because I have to wait a week or so before Wii Fit arrives (ordered it from Wal-Mart since Amazon was OOS).
