The House of the Dead: Overkill Wii

Testfreaks blog
21 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Overkill is a game that most will enjoy playing, and it’s a game that many people will hate, including your parents and grandparents. HOTD:Overkill isn’t perfect, but what it lacks it makes up for in pure fun, I loved playing this game and I go back every once in a while and play some more for a cool zombie killing fix.
  • Pros: Bloody, gory, and obscene, Lots of fun, Zombie killing fun
  • Cons: Not for children or closed minded individuals, Dialogue can get old and be goofy

  • Excerpt: Let’s not beat about the bush here. The House of The Dead: Overkill is a cracking game – and is easily one of the best third-party Wii games available, if not the best. And yes, it would be incredibly cruel to the game – not the console platform – to say that it wasn’t really beating much to get to those lofty heights. It would be cruel to say that, because you would be taking away from what is an incredibly surprising game.

The House Of The Dead: Overkill Review (WII)

Yet Another Review Site
21 April 2009
  • Excerpt: All Bullets, No Brains Me and ‘The House Of The Dead’ have a sort of love-hate relationship going on. I love how it has provided me with hour upon hour of top notch zombie slaying action since I was a toddler. I hate how it has sucked up �312 in loose change over the years. Yet even though it’s a shining classic with plastic guns attached, it’s often the victim of intense bullying and name calling from all of the other arcade machines in the overcrowded room for its dire...
  • Pros: Ridiculously funny Grindhouse theme, Brings back the retro arcade gameplay we loved, Great fun to play with a friend
  • Cons: Too short for the un-ambitious, Suffers from lagging issues

  • Excerpt: It takes a lot to shock us when it comes to controversial games. Usually when a game tries to be edgy it ends up simply being filled with lots of swearing and gore and not much else. Yes, House Of The Dead: Overkill has insane amounts of bad language and masses of gore, but it's got more. So much more.

  • Excerpt: Er wordt wel eens gezegd: ‘Een goed begin is het halve werk’. Dit moet SEGA gedacht hebben bij het maken van House of the Dead: Overkill. Wanneer een spel mij namelijk al in het openingsfilmpje verrast met een paaldansende, schaars geklede en vooral wulpse dame kan je eigenlijk nog weinig fout doen. Het is zeker voor herhaling vatbaar. De rest van de game ook hoor, maar wat boeit dat eigenlijk na zo’n opening? Laten we bij het begin beginnen.

Análisis House of the dead: Overkill

rincongamer.com
8 April 2009
  • Conclusion: HOTD: Overkill ha intentado desmarcarse mucho de sus anteriores entregas imponiendo un estilo distinto y lo cierto es que la mezcla funciona muy bien. El juego va bastante más allá de lo que puede parecer en un principio y, más que un homenaje a la serie B, el juego está concebido como una gran película de zombis de mínimo presupuesto, con todo lo que ello conlleva a la hora de implicar al jugador en su experiencia con el título.
