    Had this one for the Dream Cast along with Resident Evil to round of the horror survival shelf. Interesting to see it floating about and seemingly more popular than I thought it would be. It is pretty fun (shooter on rails like Operation Wolf, but with zombies).

    @ramesh: there's more than one exe, I just checked. Could it be that your antivirus automatically deleted the EXEs? I guarantee that House of the Dead is virus free

    You are right Moldy... my mistake. I changed the system data accordingly.

    This is actually a Windows 95/Windows NT game and cannot be played on vanilla DOS.
    I ran all of the executables in DOSBOX, a MSDOS 7.10 Virtual Machine, my stand alone ThinkPad running IBM DOS 4.01, and also my 2003 Dell Dimension 4600. It would only work when running under Win XP or 98 on my Dell.
