The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut

Destructoid

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Snappy support for the PlayStation Move makes it easier to appreciate the loving grindhouse aesthetics stitched over this otherwise familiar light-gun shooter.

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

Cybershack
8 November 2011
  • Excerpt: SEGA’s House of the Dead series is one of the publisher’s enduring legacies from the old coin-op days and the history is well-preserved here in the latest edition of the point and shoot zombie extravaganza. The main attraction of this is the presentation of a Grindhouse classic cinema style.
  • Pros: Funny, well plotted, a homage to grindhouse cinema, satisfyingly gory explosions
  • Cons: Dated game play, occasional grinding, and inaccurate aiming.

  • Conclusion: But then the trick is arguably the same from Operation Wolf to Time Crisis: toss in a quid, grab a plastic pistol and fire at the screen to survive. All but your aim and the pulling of the trigger is automated (hence "on-rail shooter", the term the genre squeezed into in the move from the arcades...
  • Pros: Grindhose styling works, good humour and co-op.
  • Cons: Dull, unpolished, little extra from the Wii version.

  • Excerpt: Os videojogos têm uma dificuldade danada de se afastarem de outras formas de entretenimento e arranjar a sua própria identidade. É um processo normal tendo em conta a infância e imaturidade do meio e é também normal que tente retirar do cinema (uma das formas artísticas e de entretenimento mais...

  • Conclusion: No me considero un experto de los juegos tipo lightgun. En cualquier caso, el truco para ganar siempre era el mismo, de Operation Wolf a Time Crisis: meter una moneda, coger una pipa de plástico y liarte a tiros a toda velocidad para sobrevivir (hasta que sale eso de 'RELOAD').
  • Pros: Estilazo grindhouse, buen humor y divertido juego cooperativo.
  • Cons: Poco cuidado, poca novedad respecto al juego de Wii.

2 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Joyau noir du jeu de tir sur Wii, The House of the Dead Overkill fait son retour deux ans et demi plus tard avec une version PS3 Extended Cut , bardée d'ajouts et passée à la HD en même temps qu'à la 3D stéréoscopique (ou anaglyphe avec de simples lunettes en carton pour les moins nantis).
  • Pros: Une ambiance géniale, Dialogues et scénario savoureux, Encore plus de choses à débloquer, Le système de combos, Des musiques qui poutrent, Varla Guns et ses missions
  • Cons: La visée flottante au Move, Toujours mal calibré à deux, Un poil moins sanglant que l'original, Des loadings parfois longuets

  • Conclusion: Non mi considero un esperto deIl genere light-gun. In ogni caso, il trucco per vincere è sempre lo stesso, da Operation Wolf a Time Crisis: butta dentro una monetina, afferra una pistola di plastica e fai fuoco verso lo schermo per sopravvivere.
  • Pros: Ottimo stile grindhouse, buon humor e modalità cooperativa
  • Cons: Poco curato, poche novità rispetto alla versione Nintendo Wii
