The Typing of the Dead review

Reviewed July 15, 2005

Jason Venter says: "Sometimes, the word will be simple, something like ‘Montana’ or even a simple phrase like ‘Adios’ or ‘Game Over.’ Other times, you’ll be asked to type something ridiculous. It’s funny that whoever put the game together thought to include words like ‘mullet’ and discussions about bed-wetting and sexuality."

The Typing of the Dead review

Review date unknown

jaksiel says: "Games like this are the reason why hardcore gamers respect Sega so much. After all, they certainly don’t know how well such a quirky game would sell...but they don’t care. They are committed to bringing gamers quality games, no matter how much of a niche product it is. Who else but Sega would have the guts to release a typing game based on a light gun game? You certainly wouldn’t see such a thing released by Sony or Nintendo, that’s for sure. "
