12 December 2011
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.

House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut (PS3) Review
2 December 2011
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.
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.

Excerpt: The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut is a revamped re-release of a game that previously appeared on the Wii, and unfortunately, it looks it, but let me give props where they are due: the developers were going for an over-the-top Grindhouse style with HOD: Overkill and they absolutely nailed it.

Excerpt: Zombies, I’m sick of them. The Walking Dead are everywhere – you just can’t get away from them. Zombie boxed games, zombie downloadable games, there’s just no safe place from those flesh eating monsters. I’m so sick of them, that I just want to shoot them and keep on shooting them. Lucky for me, then, that’s nearly always the objective of such games. The House of the Dead: OVERKILL may not be a new zombie game, having first been released on the Wii back in 2009.
