Summary: I played and beat this game on my nephews Ps2, since I don't own 1. I was expecting Resident Evil, but this game is lighter in story and gameplay by far. The characters provide funny commentary, and killing the zombies is fun, cause you bash them in the head with a shovel, or chainsaw (saw them to bits) or blow them away with a shotgun. The zombies also look funny. The puzzles were challenging but not too hard. However, this gme loses points for the length.
Summary: the first two levels were alot of fun , but on level three im out in the woods and its really dark , deadites are coming faster then you can see them unless your in the town , player control is ok.
Summary: The game gets a little boring pretty quickly and probably doesn't have great or even good replayability. However for the price its not bad. Don't be a fool and buy this game solely because its Bruce Campbel and Evil Dead 2-even though I too found it an interesting series to make a video game from. Shotguns, chainsaws, and shovels are certainly fun to do the good lords work, but after a while you've been there and done that. Rent it first.
Summary: Ya know how in Resident Evil-esque games you are in a city/town overtaken by zombies, well it's in this game! Ya know how in Resident Evil-esque games you have to find a key to unlock a door and both are usually on opposite ends of the map? Well, it's in this game. Ya know how in Resident Evil-esque games you have to run from the zombies because you just don't have the ammo or health to stand and fight? Not in this game, baby!
Excerpt: ***DISCLAIMER*** I have moved over this review from my GameFAQs account where I go by the name ThePreacher. You may have also seen 1 or 2 of my reviews on imdb.com but I just thought I'd give a heads up! Enjoy the review! ***End Disclaimer*** I don't hate this game, but it's not breaking new ground or really doing anything other than just being another horror video game. Ah well, maybe the sequel will be better.
Excerpt: This is a third person action game, including a puzzle solving element. Price: I bought it for £30 with another game in comet but im sure you can get it cheaper. Amazon have it for as low as £2.98 Its 1 player Rated: 18 It took me about 15 hours to complete, 7ish the next time round. You can only play as one player - but he is Ash - voiced by the original Ash - Bruce Cambell - What more could you ask for. Warning - Not for kids - lots of blood, gore and adult comedy.
You expect a lot more from a PS2 game these days...

Summary: Okay, so as an Evil Dead Videogame, we were never gonna be talking complicated but the simple linear gameplay and lack of innovation stopped this one getting 4 stars. Its a simple 3rd person shooter as you, the hero Ash run about Dearborn town trying to send the Deadites back to hell with a variety of weaponry. And thats about it really.
