Awesome / House of the Dead

In General
  • Dual Wielding. To compensate for the fact that two people are playing, the game pumps up the difficulty for two player. Grabbing both guns and going Guns Akimbo in the Arcade solo and finishing the game? Brilliance.
  • If you fulfill a particular task that lasts throughout the game (saving every civilian in 1 and 2, rescuing your partner successfully every time in III, getting a B or higher in every chapter in 4), the game treats you to a bonus room full of extra lives and point-bonus items right before the Final Boss.

The House of the Dead

The House of the Dead II
  • Playing House of the Dead 2 for the first time and reaching the Stage 5 boss, provided that you played House of the Dead 1 in its entirety beforehand.
    • Even better once you realize that his lines aren't as Narm-filled as the dialogue for the other characters.
    The Magician: I've been waiting for this time to come. You have no future: either I get you or the Emperor will. Either way, your fate is in OUR hands!
