Summary: This game isn't up to par with the older games, but it's worth the price at this point just to get the 3 old ones on the disk. Overall it's pretty okay, a bit repetitive with the quick-time events, and not terribly deep combat, but I didn't buy it because I believed it would be the richest gaming experience ever. I expected the game to be more or less what it is, a good beat 'em up with a horror inspired storyline.
Summary: This may be the first time I've felt compelled to defend a game. Normally I only review crappy games so people don't waste their money. I just finished the game however and having heard a lot of very negative reviews I have to give my opinion. The BAD: Some crappy jumping mechanics (although there is very little jumping in the game), horrendous loading times (yes, it loads every time you die), and the last level being an escort mission!
A good revival for a game that just needed a little more love.

Summary: This reboot of SplatterHouse is a game which has a rough start, however if you stick with it, has a satisfying finish. It's a pity that the game ended on a cliffhanger, and apparently is not going to be resolved any time soon. Some of the issues I had with this game are the long load times, along with a few points in the game where I got lost. These could've probably been addressed if the game developers were allowed additional time to polish and optimize the game.
Summary: This is a very average game...maybe even a tad below average. However, if you're one of those people who is into gore and gratuitous violence, you may derive some entertainment from this title. It's not the prettiest game I've ever seen - the graphics are somewhere between XBOX and XBOX360 quality - not quite last gen, but not quite current gen either. Lots of button mashing is the name of the game.
Summary: I am enjoying this game thoroughly now days. There is a point in the first level where you get your arm ripped off, and proceed to beat enemies to death with it. That pretty much sets the pace for the game. That being said, I will not be turning to the game for deep, introspective musings about the state of the world. Unless that state involves monsters. this is a good game after all.
Summary: A lot more enjoyable than the critics make it out to be. It's not the greatest game in the universe, but if you like crazy gore and violence and/or metal, this is the game for you. Plus it includes the 3 original Splatterhouse games as unlockables, which is awesome.
