Splatterhouse (PlayStation 3)

 

There's a lot wrong with Splatterhouse. It's a bungling action game that relies heavily on the nostalgia from its predecessors while hiding its faults under the copious amounts of blood you spill kicking, punching, and chainsawing the fleshy demons...

Troubled development leads to a disappointing experience. Namco Bandai's latest reimagining is more or less what you would expect. Anyone familiar with the Splatterhouse series knows that the game is...

Loads of blood and gore ; Interesting boss designs

Long load times ; Frustrating platforming ; Combat repetition ; Terrible checkpoints

Splatterhouse Review for the PS3

 

This ain't Jim Carrey's Mask.

Gameplay is solid, entertaining; Jim Cummings as voice-over for mask; Cut-scenes and executions are cute

until you see them again and again; Checkpoint system is physically painful; Certain game elements are shallow and get in the way

Just in time for the holidays, Namco Bandai Games brings us a heartwarming tale of one man and his quest to be reunited with the woman he loves. It's a tale of love, determination...Oh, and blood - buckets upon buckets of blood.

There's also an exclusive unlockable mask on the Xbox 360, it's nothing major and changes very little about the game, but hey - it's something right?

Splatterhouse Playtest: Exactly What It Says On The Box

 

It's surreal to have the recognizable voice of the man who voices Winnie the Pooh and Tigger yelling at you to rip things to shreds, but at the same time, it adds a sense of character that you don't get in other brawlers.

Splatterhouse may never be called a great game, but I could see it becoming a cult classic, just like the games and (some of) the films that inspired it.

Another month and another remake rolls it's way towards us like a trundling behemoth of unoriginality. It's only fair that we judge Splatterhouse on it's own merits so put all nostalgia and memories of 1990's classic out of your mind. Unlike it's...

Splatterhouse (PS3) Review

 

Over 20 years after the original game was released, Namco Bandai is looking to reboot the Splatterhouse franchise. Will the newly styled game be able to bring fresh blood to the genre? Find out as we explore one of the goriest games on the market.

Back in the late 80's Namco released a horror game that frightened parents more than it did players. Like most horror-themed mediums, Splatterhouse was over the top with gore and filled with a cheesy plot. It instantly became a cult classic for its...

This Splatterhouse remake is disturbing and cruel in more ways than one.

Massive amounts of blood and gore, can be humorous at times; guilty pleasure game

Arena battles get repetitive quickly, humour falls flat most of the time

Splatterhouse Review

 

Between poor level design, boring combat, and hamfisted attempts at over-the-top explicit content, Splatterhouse is a mess.

Let’s be honest: Splatterhouse was always the video game equivalent of an exploitation flick. In an era where games were dominated by perky platformers and colorful beat-em-ups, Splatterhouse was a breath of rotten air, full of gore, secondhand...

All the gore in the world can't disguise Splatterhouse's laundry list of clumsy mechanics.

Some inspired artistic touches ; The story takes a few interesting turns ; You can use your own severed limbs as weapons

Awful platforming ; Side-scrolling sections are full of cheap deaths ; Jittery camera ; Inexcusably long load times ; All sorts of botched details, glitches, and other flaws

The action isn't as fluid as the ruddy puddles you wade through. Animations are jumpy and collision detection is iffy; your target might take damage even though it doesn't look as though you made contact. Some moves, such as your dash, have a too-long...
