Excerpt: The title sounds incredibly dirty and that’s logical as the game itself is a lineup of bloody combat scenes and guts flying all around. And that’s good as all the gore in this game is what makes it so much fun.
Excerpt: Another month and another remake rolls it’s way towards us like a trundling behemoth of unoriginality. It’s only fair that we judge Splatterhouse on it’s own merits so put all nostalgia and memories of 1990’s classic out of your mind.
Excerpt: In WTF?! you are the Guardian of Earth, on trial by the Galactic Council of Space Justice for letting hoards of doom beasts rampage through your cities. Via videos of your actions in various cities on Earth, you defend your case.
Excerpt: There is a game that exists only in hyperbole. It is That Game, a vehicle for substanceless immorality, where blood flows in rivers and women exist mostly as sexual objects, where the primary means of human interaction is wrenching off a dude's arms.
Summary: : Splatterhouse is a solid reinvention of the franchise that’s fun to play and honors the franchise enough that both fans and newcomers should be able to enjoy it, but some issues in both mechanics and theme prevent it from being as good as it could have been.
Conclusion: Reviving a franchise and a genre that has long since stepped out of the way for its multi-genre cousins has been realised by holding its middle finger up to the ‘realism’ (and some comforts) of modern gaming.
Conclusion: Pretty nice visuals, good arsenal of moves, cool retro gameplay from side scroll elements. I found the achievements to be rather easy even if it does look like a lot of grinding at first glance, they will all come in no time if you keep at it.
Conclusion: Does feel a bit rushed to get out before Call of Duty, but overall is a solid game. Medal of Honor definitely could be a lot better with more polish and less linear gameplay. The multiplayer portion may not be able to stand up against its competitors.
