The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: The House of the Dead: Overkill is one of my favorite Wii games. Not because it's of the quality of its gameplay or its narrative depth, but because it's one of the most gloriously stupid productions ever committed to disc. From its record-breaking profanity to increasingly ridiculous bosses, Overkill is shameless on a beautiful level. Sadly, the game never sold too hotly, what with it being a vulgar and violent experience on the family-friendly Wii.

  • Summary: " The House Of The Dead Overkill: Extended Cut " may be a two year old game with a few new things thrown in but it still proves enjoyable thanks in no small part to the frantic action and well put together storyline and excellent presentation.

  • Conclusion: If you’ve never played Overkill before this is the definitive version of a great game. It’s something that might only be played once but will be remembered fondly after that fact as a fun experience. It’s hilarious, sometimes disgusting, sometimes ridiculous and almost always fun – especially when playing with a friend.

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

  • Summary: 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 Grindhouse film, and it’s a ton of fun to play.

House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Edition

Square-Go
2 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Every good student union will include at least one arcade machine tucked up in the corner of the area with all the pool tables. It may be something relatively new such as Guitar Hero (with ludicrously heavy guitars). If you’re lucky, it will be something along the lines of House of the Dead 3 , spewing out so bad it’s good dialogue (“Gi’ it all ye’ve got!”). The House of the Dead arcade games draw a crowd in a way even fighting games can’t.

The House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut Review

VideoGamer.com
30 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The lightgun shooter genre has, let's be honest, stagnated a little. The glory days of Virtua Cop and Time Crisis seemed gone for good, leaving us with half-decent Wii/PlayStation Move games. What we didn't see coming in 2009 was Headstrong and SEGA's superb B-movie take on the long-running House of the Dead series. Now ported over to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Move, this bloody, gory, crude, profanity-filled lightgun shooter will hopefully find a bigger audience.

House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut Review

GamerNode
30 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Like the 2009 Wii iteration before it, House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut for PlayStation 3 is a reintroduction and re-tuning of a genre that survives in youthful memories of arcades, movie theaters and shopping malls. The on-rails shooter, like its inherent design and real-world inspiration, moves steadily forward through time and generations in such a way that missing one stop on the train doesn’t mean picking it up at the next won’t get a passenger to the same...
  • Pros: Flawless controls, Quick and fun, Decent replay value
  • Cons: Unoriginal, Repetitive

The House of the Dead Overkill Extended Cut Review (Playstation 3)

Gamers Daily News
30 November 2011
  • Summary: Overall the Extended cut of House of the Dead Overkill does add something from the original version of the game but it certainly doesn’t live up to its alleged HD cut scene claim as they look bland. Still, the gameplay is fun and, pardon the pun, it’s worth a shot.

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

Diehard GameFAN
15 November 2011
  • Summary: This is one time where our grading system fails me, as this game is anything but decent, but the score is right. Like Manhunt before it, there’s really no reason for this game to exist outside of someone’s dark imagination. A competently executed game, but one that Sega should have second thoughts about revisiting anytime in the near future.
