Excerpt: Even with that, the Evil Dead series hasn't exactly set the world on fire. The first game, Hail to the King on the Dreamcast and PSOne, was a weird attempt at survival horror, and 2003's A Fistful of Boomstick was a deeply flawed budget title that was fun for about fifteen minutes. Even with Bruce Campbell's involvement, neither game's worth checking out; they're pretty much blatant cash runs, grafting Ash's face and voice onto unremarkable action games.
Excerpt: Back in the day, when we were all much younger, an Evil Dead video game sounded like a natural move for the franchise. Ash was practically a video game hero already, with his infinite supply of shotgun shells, constant supply of bad one-liners, and ability to brush off attacks that should have, by rights, crippled him. Even better, he fought zombies, which are in the top ten all-time video game antagonists.
