In the first HOUSE OF THE DEAD, you and your partner were sent to the Curian Mansion to investigate Dr. Curian, a mad scientist who was experimenting with the dead. Once you had cleaned out the house and eliminated the doctor, you figured the world was once again safe. Unfortunately, a man named Goldman decided to continue the doctor's research, only this time the zombies are overrunning an entire town. Once again, it's up to you and your partner to clean out the zombies and restore peace. Quick decisions are a must, but be careful that you don't tag an innocent citizen--keep your eyes open for special power-ups and upgrades.
