Greatest lightgun game ever?

Nonmelodic, amazon.co.uk
27 April 2011
  • Summary: Ignore any negative reviews about this game, they clearly have no sense of humour. Not that this game is for everyone, the over the top langauge and extreme plot (not to mention the in your face blood and gore) might be to much for some, but for most of us it's what makes it not only a unique game but one the the best games sega has put out ever. No game deserves a sequel more than this! summary: Incredibly funny plot, swear a minute, blood and gore on rails shooter.

  • Excerpt: "...go, THOTD (the house of the dead) probably has the biggest cult following because the first few games were just so badly made and corny. Now though, Headstrong games have decided to go back to these roots but on purpose to create the best lightgun game available today on Wii. The game is an on rails shooter and tells the story of Dtc. Washington and Agent G as they attempt to bring down Papa Ceaser and his plans of mutant experimentation. The most ...

  • Excerpt: "...shooter. this game is set in the 60's when monster movies where coming out such as " IT CAME FROM SPACE" type of feel. the gameplay is Awesome, with the ability to upgrade between weapons ( Pistol, Shotgun and machine gun) these guns can also be upgraded, for clip size,damage and everything else :P the movie clips are soooooo annoying they just keep talking, and talking, and talking and there is no way to skip, make sure you don't die, cause if ...

The House of the Dead: Overkill certainly earns its 18 rating!

  • Excerpt: "The House of the Dead: Overkill…now…where to start? Everything about this game is based on the grindhouse style of film, so I believe that this must be fully explained prior to anything else. The grindhouse style of film is a strange one, very low film quality and over the top subject matter, be it explicit sexual innuendoes, gratuitous swearing and unreal amounts of blood and gore. Very much b-movie material, those who have seen Rodriguez and Tarantino’s ...
  • Pros: Unique graphical style, Catchy soundtrack, Fun to play .
  • Cons: Will offend some, 3 - 4 player action poor .

  • Excerpt: "...like zombies! If this is the case, then you will do anything you can to get your hands on a great zombie game. What more can you say? You will do just about anything to be able to blast and chop your way through a million of them. The zombie bug that bites you is worse than the zombie bite itself! To be fair, in the eyes of the fans, this game was hyped up so much leading up to its release it was basically lining itself up for a massive fall. A ...
  • Pros: Easy to get into  -  hard to put down .  Great storyline, Loads of blood and guts .  Goregasms all round
  • Cons: None other than slight lag on sprites upon death if you can kill them really fast .

The B Movie off games

  • Conclusion: When you think of this game think of a B movie, because thats what this is. It's based on a B movie, with a cheesy story line, but that' what makes it good and very funny you just keep laughing at the 2 characters lines. This an arcade style zombie shoot-um up and you don't have to worry about moving your chacter around because the computer does that for you.

Excellent gameplay, terrible cut scenes

djmpaulc, Play.com
7 June 2009
  • Conclusion: The gameplay is absolutely fantastic with hours of fun either on your own or with a friend; there are plenty of variations in enemy with enough fire power to get you through, if at times it is a little easy. Unfortunately for me, the cut scenes are terrible, one of the characters continually swears nonstop and at points you would rather shoot him than the enemy; it gets a little embarrassing at times.
