Developed exclusively for the PlayStation 2.
Resident Evil: Survivor
2000 (Playstation, PC)
A first-person-shooter based on the Resident Evil series of "survival horror" video games, Resident Evil: Survivor is an unfortunate casualty of political correctness. It's painfully obvious that this game was meant to be played with a light gun, which the Japanese version supports, but the U.S. version decidedly does not. Instead, a rudimentary control scheme using the PlayStation controller has been substituted, one which is simply ill-suited for the otherwise unmodified arcade-style gameplay.
Were it not for this major shortcoming, Resident Evil: Survivor's other flaws would be more tolerable, if not excusable. The attempt here to graft various elements of the Resident Evil games onto a shoot-'em-up just doesn't take. The plot--which casts the player as an amnesiac who survives a helicopter crash only to find himself in a foreboding town swarming with zombies and other hideous biotechnological mutations.
Resident Evil: Survivor 2 Code: Veronica
2002 (Arcade, Playstation 2)
Resident Evil Survivor 2: Code Veronica was unveiled in October by Capcom's European division, Capcom Eurosoft, and today the company released the first screenshots from the PlayStation 2 version of the game.

Typing of the Dead
2000 (Dreamcast, PC)
And who said typing can't be fun? I found "The Typing of the Dead" to be a pretty entertaining way to improve typing skills. It can be difficult at times, being that there's a lot going on, but once you get into the game you can play it for hours.
"The Typing of the Dead" is a typing version of the arcade game "The House of the Dead." Instead of having a gun as your weapon, your weapon is the keyboard. The faster you type, the more zombies you take out. Type words before the zombies can attack you, otherwise the next grave you see is your very own.

In death, the city stirs. Its borders still locked down after a sudden government quarantine two years ago, Malton's trapped civilians make their way through the derelict buildings, surviving the changing seasons to rebuild their fragmented society from the rubble upwards. Military cleanup squads patrol the empty streets, stationed in the city for the long haul, while embedded scientific groups continue the experiments that brought them here.
And the dead rise up and thrive, trailing through the ruined streets of the city, milling between buildings and clawing through makeshift barricades and diversions, reclaiming the city as their own.
Zombies Ate My Neighbors
1993 (Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo)
Zombies Ate My Neighbors is a run and gun video game for the Super NES and Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis platforms. The game was produced by LucasArts as a comical tribute to both classic and schlocky horror films of the 1950s and 1960s. A sequel entitled Ghoul Patrol was released in 1994, but was not as well received as its predecessor and no further sequels were produced. A similar game, Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia, contains references to Zombies Ate My Neighbors. GamePro ranked Zombies Ate My Neighbors #9 in their "top ten games you never heard of" list in their 200th issue. Recently, Zombies Ate My Neighbors was given a rating on ESRB's website, which means the game may appear on the Wii's Virtual Console.. It has since been listed on several gaming sites such as 1UP.com and IGN indicating an impending release. No official statement has been issued on a scheduled release date.
1999 (Arcade, Dreamcast)
Think you undid the undead in Dreamcast's gun-crazy fright fest? Think again. The zombies from House of the Dead 2 are back, and they want revenge for your gun-happy ways. In a change from House of the Dead's first-person viewpoint, Zombie Revenge places all characters (including hordes of attacking zombified souls) in a third-person camera view.
A perfect translation of the arcade game by the same name, Zombie Revenge also offers up an original mode that features a few small differences, including the option to play with powered-up guns or in bare knuckles mode (without the aid of handguns).
The graphics are crisp and clean, but the controls are mired in poor response time, and too many functions are assigned to the same buttons. Fans of the arcade version will rejoice at not having to pump quarters into a machine, but average zombie-hunting folks might be better off with Sega's other spooky shooter, House of the Dead 2. --Jeff Young
