Typing of the Dead -- Sega

Very weird, very cool, and very needing a keyboard. Possibly the most bizarre game I've played in years, and definitely the most unique concept for a typing tutor ever. Absolutely not recommended for children due to graphic violence and gore. I don't even know what else to say here. This game is probably only worth picking up for it's uniqueness, or to complete a Dreamcast collection... or, if you have a keyboard you bought for Phantasy Star Online... then this would be a good game to buy so that you could have something else to use the keyboard with.

As a typing tutor though, the game leaves a bit to be desired. It is lax on both capitalization and spacing enforcement, so if you really want to learn how to type, then this isn't the tool for the job. This title really is best played by already proficient typists who are not going to damage their skill by practicing bad typing habits. Still... the control scheme does get points for being unique!

Sheesh... someone needs to let those poor programmers at Sega out to play in the sunlight a bit more.
