House of the Dead: Overkill ? Extended Cut (PS3) Review

 

It?s a bloody good time.

Overkill is a game best played co-op with a fellow friend on the couch. If you have 2 PlayStation Move controllers and a friend who enjoys light-gun games, go ahead and give this game a shot. Overkill absolutely nails the presentation of a 1970?s...

House of the Dead: OVERKILL - Extended Cut Review

 

Why do they keep going back to that house?

Lots of shooting, gore, and carnage; Plenty of environments to experience; Grindhouse appeal is very well done; Fun extra modes

Barely a notch about Wii-level graphics; Short overall; Sometimes just tries too hard

House of the Dead: Overkill -- Ext..

 

Good for the first timers.

Sick sense of humor, tight shooting, plenty of collectibles and power-ups

Not worth the upgrade if you?ve played it before, Move calibration stinks

House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut Playtest – A Rung Below The Theatrical Cut

 

The biggest addition to the Extended Cut is probably the two bonus chapters, focusing on strippers Varla Guns and Candy Stryper.

2. The music that plays on the level select menu often contains snippets of dialogue, even from the ending. While it’s probably not a big deal to spoil a rail shooter, I thought it was interesting that this music would play randomly even before you had...

When it comes to arcade light-gun shooters, there were few that delivered the nonstop thrills like House of the Dead. The long-running series has since come into the home; this includes House of the Dead: Overkill, which released for the Wii back in...

PlayStationLifeStyle reviews the recent title from Bethesda and it doesn't disappoint.

Melon farmer... there, we said it.

While it's true that the market is currently experiencing a bit of a glut in the Zombie genre, in our view the modern take of most of these games is not a patch on the old B-Movie style. So, Melon Farmers, if you want a game filled with blood and...

House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut

 

SEGA proves that PlayStation Move can be more accurate than the DualShock with House of the Dead.

In conclusion, if you're looking for a new shoot-em-up to show off your PlayStation Move, this is definitely not going to disappoint. Despite the short campaign, I appreciate that a lot of time and effort has gone into upgrading it from a Wii version....

Grab your popcorn, it’s time for another Grindhouse flick!

 

The ZOM..er...I mean MUTANTS are back!! Yes, the much-loved House of the Dead franchise once again has a new (well, sort of new) title on store shelves, and being the zombie fan that I am, I just had to take this one for a spin, especially since I...

Grindhouse aesthetic complements the franchise in a way no other can ; Mindless fun ; Frantic action, especially in the later levels ; Plenty of options, modes, collectibles, etc

Move only really feels comfortable with a gun attachment ; No option to adjust reticule speed when using a controller

What else can I say about Overkill? It won’t walk away with any Game of the Year honors. When taken by individual merits, it won’t be viewed as a great game in any respect. However, when everything is combined together, then painted over with a coat of...
